Looks like it’s debuting at Gen Con, I’m loving the DC and Rick and Morty boards.

Anime would be a great theme!...but so many awesome characters/setting to pick from. What would be your top 3 if Funko every made an anime theme?

I had an opportunity to meet and chat with one of the employees Forrest-Pruzan Creative LLC (FPC). She was working Fundays and was super impressed with everything Funko was bringing to the table and it sounded like a well received merger. Plus, she gave me her yellow freaky tiki fundays shirt as the night was ending (she changed out of it earlier....pervs).

Always cool to see the brand expand!

We aren't able to go to GenCon but luckily I have some friends that are!! You have to first sign up for a demo, and then you get a chance to purchase the game. So for those going, make sure you look into that!! I can't wait to play it! :)

In line with this release, did you know that Funko has already released a table-top game before this one? It's called Throwdown Battle Game starring Batman and Joker. It was released back in 2013. :D

Anybody else here knows this? :)

Moving back to the topic, can't wait for the Funkoverse DC boardgame, will defenitely try to get that one. :D

I'm not sure there are any concept leaks yet, but based on current trends for board games.. I can kind of speculate for ya!

Looks like 1 set of dice with 3 markings? Shields, Bangs, and !!!. I imagine you need to roll X many shields or X many Bang icons to do something... possible that the !!! are automatic failures or catastrophic events when rolling.

It also looks like each character has a stat card, so I'm sure there will be unique abilities for each figure. Batgirl has a Batarang equip card, so I wonder if you randomly find those in game, or roll for them before the game.

My guess based on the layout of the board is that each player will have a specific mission they draw from and need to complete... the fact that there are good+evil pieces (at least for the batman game shown), I bet we'll see it as a possible soft team vs team game where the villians try to accomplish a goal and the heroes stop them and have additional goals that can earn them points. Maybe play with the most points is the overall winner, but good or evil might also be "triumpant"

It only shows one board, so it could also be a dungeon exploration game, which is super popular right now.... creating a map before or during play so your character has to traverse a world of sorts.

Either way, this is A LOT more exciting than what I had originally imagined (funko themed Monopoly... lol), so hopefully we'll see a lot more fandoms!

EDIT:

Upon further inspection.. Batgirl is in a "knocked out character" zone hinting to fighting between characters and there are Gems on the board... maybe the game has multiple missions you need to complete (IE: Star Wars Imperial Assault) over a long campaign. The current setup maybe being "heroes stop the villains from gaining X many gems"

The knocked out character place card has number sections, maybe after so many turns your hero becomes active again so long as your team mate is alive?

Take it all with a grain of salt though, haha.

Generally games like these are pretty simple to follow, you should be able to "game master" a 6 year old totally fine!

Great analysis, Scott! From this, Can I deduce that you play a lot of table top games? :D

But going back to the topic, really excited for this expansion into the table top game scene, this would only mean we get to do some Funkoverse Game Nights with our co-Funatics soon!
