Hasbro is looking to bring several of its popular brands to Oculus GO, as it was announced during Facebook's F8 Developer Conference. Soon, you'll be able to play classic Hasbro titles like Boggle, Trivial Pursuit, and Monopoly with others using Oculus Go, making any room a virtual game room.

You'll be able to access virtual reality versions of these games anywhere you can use Oculus Rooms, which includes 23 different countries. These new games are rolling out as part of a new update for Oculus Rooms, in fact, which will help people connect over fun tabletop games. You can use your own avatars in special environments to sit down with friends across the world for a virtual game night.

The first game coming down the line is Boggle, which will launch this June, and Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly will be up for grabs later this year. Boggle can be played with up to four people as you connect letters up, down, diagonally, and sideways to make words before your friends can get to them first. The player with the most points wins.
