‘The Haunted Mansion’, ‘Hocus Pocus’ Get Board Games

Halloween 2020 just keeps getting spookier and spookier. Two new board games based on Disney creations will make the upcoming scary season even more fun, according to comicbook.com.

The first game–The Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits–is based on the popular Disneyland attraction and was brought to life in partnership with Funko Games. This board game–for two to six players–deals with exploring the “classic rooms of the ghost-infested manor,” according to the description, “from the festivities-filled Ballroom to the Attic and out to the Graveyard and beyond in search of spirits.”

To play, you move around the mansion by rotating the Endless Hallway around Madame Leota’s Seance Room, collecting Ghost Cards and avoiding Haunt Cards and Hitchhiking Ghosts as you move along.

Pre-orders for the game are available on Amazon for $24.99. A release date has been set for Sept. 30–in plenty of time for your first Halloween party.

The second offering–Hocus Pocus: The Game–is from Ravensburger and was inspired by Disney’s classic 1993 movie. In this board game, the Sanderson sisters are brewing up their wicked potion, and it’s up to the six players to stop them in their tracks.

To get the game started, according to the description, you can “play potion ingredients to the cauldron and match the colors or ingredients,” while Winifred, Mary and Sarah “cast spells to thwart your plans.” You can use such tricks as the Burning Rain of Death to help you along. Sounds serious.

The game–available on Amazon for $19.97–includes 50 Ingredient Cards, a Witch Board, 13 Spell Cards, a Sun Token and four Trick Tokens.
