Stranger Things is coming back on October 27th. That is only two weeks from now, and I cannot wait. As a collector of many things, I also want to get my hands on whatever merch I can. Figures, Funko Pops, blankets — you name it, I want it. Hasbro Games knows this as well, and now they are giving us a line of Stranger Things board games!
Stranger Things Monopoly
That's right. Like every other major pop culture property, we are getting a Monopoly board based on the show. Tokens will include items from the Upside Down, and spaces will be settings from the show. There's Steve's Pool where Barb met her demise, and Hawkins Middle School where our heroes attend. I personally have too many Monopoly boards at this point. I am a sucker for these things. I will, however, get this one and actually play with it. That box art is too cool to pass on.
Stranger Things Ouija Board
Now that is cool. A Ouija board lends itself to the show perfectly. The fact that the board itself is the light wall from the Byers house is the perfect touch. Actually, I can't think of a more perfect tie-in than this. Kudos, Hasbro.
Stranger Things Eggo Card Came
The box alone here is almost perfect. I get why they did it, but without the picture of Eleven on the front, this is a design home run. The cards themselves will feature characters and art from the show, as well as outcomes based around the mythology of the show as well.
The Stranger Things Monopoly game and Ouija board are available now. The Eggo game should also be around if you look hard enough. I know that during my marathon the night Season 2 goes live, we will be playing them all.
