For those of you who don't know, HOMIES are little figures that you can get for 50ยข from candy/toy machines as you leave a store. Anyone who has lived in the southwest probably 'know' some of these people, and they can be used as pawns to personalize your games.
(In case you haven't seen them, or would like to see what all the options are, here is the website. www.homies.tv
They also have the Italian Palermos, HoodRats, HomieClowns, Mijos and Trailer Park figures.)
feel free to add any games that you think could use some HOMIE flavor...

This is the game that inspired this list. Well, actually, hackryder wrote a little article suggesting the use of Homies in the game. Great idea!
The HOMIES are actually taller than the zombies, but no one seems to mind. I like finding the Professional HOMIES in this game, so it is like the Zombies attacked while everyone was busy working.

This one was kinda obvious. I mean, you are supposed to provide your own pawns for the game anyway. Why not HOMIES?
Now you just need a nice distinguishable Dr Lucky. If I could only find those Happy Face figures...

same as above.
(although HOMIES on the Titanic might be more out of place than Leonardo DiCaprio at a Strongman Competition)

last CheapAss for the moment.
Don't really want to use the HOMIES with obvious jobs for this one. Gotta keep with the theme.

buying up the 'Hood. Build a K-Momo on Park Place.
(and I know that many here wouldn't even dream of playing Monopoly, but who cares. Many others still enjoy the game, and the HOMIES can add flavor, without buying one of those fancy-shmancy editions.)

ok.
maybe this one doesn't work exactly. I mean, the game does refer to specific colored robots. And it is named after the Robots.
But perhaps the HOMIES would work for a cool variation? Just putting it out there.

move them carefully, or else the HOMIES might fall over.

Somehow I find it much more amusing to have the HOMIES in a Monopoly Game, but many of them would blend in with this game also.

This is the game that inspired me to go on a Homie buying spree. I was looking for a fun, downloadable game to run at our "Toracon". I mounted the homies on 1" bases, then added a little paint where needed. I painted the Human character bases green, the Zombie bases brown, and the special character bases grey. Many of the Homie miniatures motivated me to create special character rules. One note: you need to print the board slightly larger the file indicates, in order to use the 1" bases. I'll post some pictures on the Zombie Plague BGG page as soon as I can.

I not sure if this game really needs tokens, but the theme is on target with many of the Homies figures.
