Funko Games Unveils a Slew of New Games in Time for the Holidays

Funko Games recently revealed a few new games based on holiday favorites. Warm up the hot cocoa and clear the coffee table to enjoy favorite classics in a whole new way.

First up is a new addition to the Funkoverse Strategy Game – Funkoverse: Disney The Nightmare Before Christmas 100 4-Pack.

I’ve provided an overview of the concept of the Funkoverse game in our forums so head over there to learn more.

The Disney The Nightmare Before Christmas set features four exclusive Funko Pop! figures found only in this game – Jack Skellington, Sally, Oogie Boogie, and Dr. Finkelstein. Other unique features include Zero Companion adds a unique way to customize your team; Oogie Boogie comes with custom dice to use for his character abilities. The game also includes two exciting, 4-player, free-for-all game modes, with each player controlling a unique and basic character. As always the great part of the Funkoverse Strategy Game is that you can combine it with the other Funkoverse games.

Moving out of the Funkoverse Strategy game but staying in a spooky Halloween theme another new game debuting is Disney’s Haunted Mansion – Call of the Spirits.

In this game Disney’s beloved The Haunted Mansion comes to life in this hauntingly fun family board game! Explore all the classic rooms of the ghost-infested manor, from the festivities-filled Ballroom to the Attic and out to the Graveyard and beyond in search of spirits. Beware, though, of the Hitchhiking Ghosts, who are notorious for “following you home” as that may spell your doom in the end! In this simple push-your-luck, ghost-bidding system game players collect ghost cards in sets, each of which are worth different point values while avoiding haunt cards. The player with the most points at the end wins.

Features a rotating endless hallway which changes player positions throughout the game and unique ghost cards featuring illustrations inspired by the original Haunted Mansion
