Next month will see the highly anticipated arrival of the first wave of Funkoverse games. Each set contains a self contained game which also can be combined with other Funko titles in the line. Plus there’s all new and exclusive Pop!s included with each. At launch we’ll see four character sets for DC Comics featuring Batman and Harry Potter, alongside two character sets for those franchises as well as Rick & Morty and The Golden Girls. The Funkoverse games are for two to four players, ages 10+, and play in 20-60 minutes. The four character sets will carry an MSRP of $40.00 and the two character sets $24.99 when they arrive in October.
From Funko Games:
In the Funkoverse Strategy Game, you’ll combine your favorite characters and go head-to-head in four exciting game scenarios. Move through memorable locations—including Diagon Alley, Gotham City Streets, Blips and Chitz, the Florida Boardwalk, and more—and use your characters’ unique abilities to capture points and achieve victory! Each of these light strategy games can be played as a standalone game or mixed with other Funkoverse games!
Face off in the ultimate Pop! battle
In the Funkoverse Strategy Game, you combine your favorite characters and go head-to-head in four exciting game scenarios. Use your characters’ unique abilities to gain points and achieve victory!
Each turn, you select one of your characters and perform two actions. Each character has access to basic actions like moving and challenges as well as several unique abilities that may be performed only by spending ability tokens. Funkoverse uses an innovative “cooldown” system — the more powerful the ability, the longer it will take for the ability token to become available again — so players have to spend their ability tokens wisely. Each character in Funkoverse is unique, so players are encouraged to try out different combinations of characters and items in order to discover their favorite synergies and powerful strategies for all four game scenarios.
As of launch, the Funkoverse Strategy Game consists of four-character sets and two-character sets. Every four-character and two-character set is playable as a standalone game and comes with exclusive Funko Pop! Figures that aren’t available anywhere else, a double-sided board, tokens, cards, an item, and dice. Sets may be combined with one another, allowing players the freedom to play how they like!
