Toy Fair New Board Games!

New York Toy Fair was this past weekend, which brings not only a ton of cool toy announcements, but also new board games! Here is a couple of games that I, Adrian, am super excited for!

 

 

HOCUS POCUS

Players will work together to ruin the potions concocted by the legendary Sanderson sisters to save the lives of Salem’s children before the sun rises! Fans of the movie will recognize favorite spells, appearances by characters like Binx the cat and Billy Butcherson, and for an extra bonus, the game box is designed to look like none other than “Book.” The game includes plenty of other creepy details you love about the film, but the fantastical illustrations are tame enough for even your youngest gamers.

EXPECTED RELEASE: AUGUST 2020

 

 


MARVEL VILLANIOUS: INFINITE POWER

Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power is the newest game in the “Villainous” franchise. While Disney Villainous (and its many expansions) allow us to play as our favorite Disney villains, Marvel Villainous will allow 2-4 players to become popular Marvel villains, including Thanos, Hela, and Ultron.

In Marvel Villainous, each player will have their own goal to complete in order to win the game, but players can still interact by dealing “twists of fate” to the other villains.

EXPECTED RELEASE: AUGUST 2020

 

 


BACK TO THE FUTURE: BACK IN TIME

From Prospero Hall, the inventors who designed Disney Villainous, Bob Ross: Art of Chill, Choose Your Own Adventure, Horrified: Universal Monsters, and more, comes a new thrilling adaptation: Back to the Future – Back in Time!

“Wait a minute, Doc, are you telling me you built a time machine…out of a DeLorean?”

The photo of the McFly family is slowly fading… It’s 1955, and you’re wrapped up in a time paradox with Biff, Lorraine, George, and Doc Brown! Cooperate to move around Hill Valley to get the DeLorean ready, avoid Biff and his gang, help George and Lorraine fall in love, and crank the DeLorean up to 88 MPH — all just in time for the lightning to strike the Clock Tower, sending you back to the future!

In the fully co-operative game Back to the Future: Back in Time, each player takes on the role of a major character from the movie: Marty McFly, Doc Brown, Jennifer Parker, or Einstein the dog. The objective of the game is to have the characters move around 1955 Hill Valley, collecting certain items in an effort to fix Doc’s famous DeLoreon time machine, defeat Biff Tannen and his gang of trouble-making friends, while ensuring that Marty’s parents fall in love. Only when that is accomplished can players then accelerate the DeLoreon to 88 MPH down Main Street before the clock tower strikes 10:04 pm!

EXPECTED RELEASE: N/A

 

 


JUNGLE CRUISE ADVENTURE GAME

In this game inspired by the classic Disney theme park attraction, 2-4 players will be challenged to protect their passengers and cargo as their boat makes its way down a dangerous river. Each game is expected to last 45-60 minutes.

EXPECTED RELEASE: JUNE 2020

 

 


HOTH ICE PLANET ADVENTURE

Bring back memories with this retro edition of the HOTH ICE PLANET ADVENTURE board game. The game is based on the original board game from Kenner released in 1980 and features artwork inspired events from the second STAR WARS movie, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

This edition of the board game includes an exclusive SNOWSPEEDER action figure. Fans can re-live STAR WARS moments from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK as they imagine traveling around the dangerous ICE PLANET HOTH and become a JEDI KNIGHT. Using wits and the Force, players are challenged to battle the four fearsome Enemies they find along the way throughout their adventures on ICE PLANET HOTH.

Who can defeat the most evil villain the EMPIRE can send against you? Gather the Force to fight and defeat DARTH VADER for the win.
