According to a press release today, Hasbro and Electronic Arts Casual Gaming have teamed up to provide a bunch of games for EA’s Pogo.com collection. Yahtzee for online play is scheduled to be released in Summer of this year, and Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit are scheduled for Fall. There’s no word yet whether or not these will be available to everyone or just Club Pogo members.
Yahtzee will offer two ways to play: team/collaborative and competitive. The rooms will allow up to 20 people per room.
Monopoly will be the Here and Now: World Edition. You’ll be able to play alone or play against up to three other players online. The Here and Now edition of Monopoly is a modern makeover of the classic Monopoly board game where you can buy and sell destinations from around the world as you play to win it all.
Not much information is included about the version of Trivial Pursuit for Pogo, but we found this sentence interesting: “Answer the trivia questions correctly and earn points towards your wedges in pursuit of completing your pie collection by the end of the week.” This could be a daily quickie like Word Search Daily, perhaps?
