Disney Return of the Headless Horseman Game

Disney Princess Pattern Party Game
Funko Games added a Disney Princess-based board game to the mix with the Princess Pattern Party Game. With an age range of 3-years-old and up, the whole family can play including even the youngest members. With five favourite Disney Princesses, the younger age title promotes shape, colour, and pattern recognition. Spinning ‘SWAP!’ can create a load of hijinx however as each player will have to swap their spinner with another player. Whoever matches their card first wins. The Princess Pattern Party Game arrives in Spring 2022 at $14.99.
Something Wild! Spider-Man and Boba Fett Editions
These two friendly, light card games are an easy way to get everyone to sit down at the family table for a casual set-making game featuring fan-favourite Disney characters. Of course, Funko Games adds a Spider-Man Funko POP for the titular character, while the Boba Fett comes with a bite-sized POP of the storied bounty hunter for their respective versions. Each arrives at $8.99 and will make their landing later this year.
To obtain more information about each of these family-friendly Funko Games offerings, fans can hit up their website. Funko Games wasn’t finished with their exciting announcements yet however.
Funko Games also announced two-party games based on the hit workplace comedies Ted Lasso and Parks and Recreation. These game night-centered offerings allow players to walk a mile in their favourite characters’ shoes recreating stories from the hit shows.
Ted Lasso took the world by storm in 2021, earning Jason Sudeikis a Golden Globe for his portrayal of the titular character. Now, fans can take the comedy to game night with these features:
- Beloved Ted Lasso characters, events, and memorable quotes from the award–winning show.
- Cooperative gameplay has players racing to help their friends and support their teammates, taking cues from the man himself.
- Roll the football die in the AFC Richmond stadium designed game box.
- A pink biscuit box to draw tiles from.
- A free timer app add-on available to download and enhance the experience with sound effects.
The Ted Lasso Party Game will have fans believing in the Summer of 2022, for $19.99.
Parks and Recreation Party Game
Like the hit Parks and Recreation Series, the game is based on projects fans have seen the cast create in the show. Players will have to work together to make the projects come to life, but those who can claim most of the credit can get more of a reward, so being the kid that just writes his name on the group assignment won’t work if players want to win. When the lil’ Sebastian figure is done eating (the game’s timer) the player “with the sweetest waffles” wins. Players can choose to play as Leslie, April, Donna, Ron, Tom, or Andy, and features funny quotes from the show. Fans can make Pawnee better in Spring 2022, for $19.99.
With all of the exciting announcements from Funko Games, families that are fans of all genres can partake in game night with their favourite characters and series. Fans of the newly announced Funko Games can see all of their announcements over on their Official Twitter account.
As Funko Fair 2022 continues forward, there will undoubtedly be more announcements for fans of the popular company’s collectibles, so following the action on the Official Funko Twitter can keep fans in the loop.
