Ravensburger North America Reveals Their 2021 Board Games Lineup

Ravensburger North America revealed their 2021 lineup for board games on the way with a few awesome surprises! The big names jumping out from this list are they we're getting a game for the movie Alien as well as one for the '90s Disney animated show Gargoyles! Those are two cool properties to snag, and if they do them justice like The Princess Bride game they made last year, they'll do well. We also got some Marvel and Mickey Mouse titles in the mix, and one from, of all companies, Taco Bell. Yeah, we're getting a Taco Bell card game. The only one announced that we haven't listed is the GraviTrax PRO, which al already covered a few days ago. The company will also be releasing a few train sets by BRIO as they make some battery-operated toys for younger kids that can take a beating. We have the full list for you below with their release dates and prices, along with a few images of what's to come.

Alien: Fate Of The Nostromo
Executive Officer Kane is dead and the Alien stalks the halls of the Nostromo. Players must work together in this cooperative strategy game to craft items, fulfill objectives and complete one of five final missions. Choose your next move carefully, as the Alien could be just around the corner. Play solo or add Science Officer Ash to the game for a true challenge. (Ages 10+ / $29.99 MSRP / Available August 1st, 2021)

Disney Gargoyles: Awakening
Based on the fan-favorite Disney cartoon from the 1990's, Disney Gargoyles: Awakening is a cooperative strategy game. Players take the role of one of the heroes of the show—one of the Gargoyles or detective Elisa Maza—and work together to defeat Xanatos or Demona in one of four scenarios. Do battle on a three-dimensional cityscape board showing Manhattan as it was depicted in the cartoon. (Ages 10+ / $34.99 MSRP / Available August 2021)

Taco Bell Party Pack Card Game
Gather crunchy tacos, Freezes and other menu items to feed your Crew (Happier Hour Heroes, Drive Thru Divas, and more). While any menu items will fill them up, you'll need to satisfy your Crews' specific cravings to collect crave chips. When all the crave chips are gone, the game is over and the player with the most points wins! (Ages 8+ / $16.99 MSRP / Available June 2021)

Marvel Eye Found It! Card Game
The Eye Found It! game line from Ravensburger has sold over three million copies worldwide. Now, players can explore the Marvel Universe in the Marvel Eye Found It! card game. In each turn, players search their hand of beautifully illustrated cards for specific hidden objects. The first player to find a hidden item on one of their cards discards it and the player who empties their hand first wins the game! (Ages 3+ / $5.99 MSRP / Available August 2021)

Mickey and Friends Magical Treats
Mickey and his friends ordered lunch from a magical food truck, but their order arrived mixed up! Help them sort out their lunch by matching colors, food, characters, or the number of stars on each card.
