Hasbro's range of Zynga board games get UK release dates, prices

By
Hasbro's range of Zynga board games have been dated and priced for the UK.

Announced earlier this year, Words with Friends and CityVille Monopoly are available in-stores today, priced at £19.99 and £21.99 respectively.
Farmville: Hungry Hungry Herd and Draw Something, meanwhile, are due to be released on October 22, costing £19.99 each.

CityVille Monopoly will have players buying property and building skyscrapers instead of houses and hotels.

Hungry Hungry Herd combines Hungry Hungry Hippos with Farmville as the signature hippos are replaced with a sheep, cow, pig and horse.

Words with Friends and Draw Something are more straightforward adaptations, resembling Scrabble and Pictionary respectively. Words with Friends will be available both as a regular board and a Luxe version with a rotating board.

CityVille Monopoly, Words With Friends and Farmville: Hungry Hungry Herd will also ship with exclusive digital content, including in-game currency which can be used online.

It was recently announced that Words with Friends co-creators Paul and David Bettner are leaving Zynga.

The brothers are the latest in a string of departures from Zynga in recent months, including former OMGPOP chief revenue officer Wilson Griegel, chief technical officer of infrastructure Allan Leinwand, chief creative officer Mike Verdu and chief operating officer John Schappert.
