    Default Best board or parlor game starring video game characters?

    I guess this is a thread about spinoffs. This excludes sports, racing, and fighting... just board games or parlor games.

    What are some of your favorites? Sonic Spinball? Mario Party? Pac-Man Fever? Mortal Kombat Pog Master?

    Hmm, I don't know... how about the actual Pac-Man board game? I remember it being awesome, but haven't played it in years now... no idea where that went, but we don't have it anymore.

    Pokemon Yahtzee Jr. was pretty fun, how is the Super Mario Bros. board game?

    I wonder if there's a video-game version of Trivial Pursuit?

    Nintendo Monopoly.

    In the 1980's, this would've been ironic.

    In the 2000's, this is a great board game.

    Pong:
    Magnavox Odyssey was clever, they sold their video games with a board game included:

    Wipeout


    Invasion


    Interplanetary Voyage


    Brain Wave


    and even Baseball, Roulette and Football.

    Someting Philips (Magnavox) continued later with the Odyssey 2 The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt, Quest for the Rings....

    Oh pfft, Reiner Knizia's LotR>every licenced board game ever.

    But looking at vg franchises exclusively, I'd cast a vote for Pac-Man as well.

    Quite a few quiz games do contain an occasional video game question. Trivial Pursuit Jr. contains the question, "Which video game character has appeared in the most games?" The Trival Pursuit: Pop Culture 2 DVD also contains the question, "Asteroids was the first video game to feature what?"
