Get Ready for the Spooky Season With NEW Haunted Mansion Board Game
With two months still to go until Halloween, Disney’s Haunted Mansion is having its day in the sun due to the box office success of the latest Haunted Mansion film as well as the popularity of the beloved dark rides at Disney parks around the globe! Now, we’ve got another way that you can get in on the spooky fun, without heading to the movies or the theme parks! Check out the new Haunted Mansion game currently available on Amazon.
Though the game has previously been released in different incarnations (including one for Disneyland Resort), this new edition celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World and has been revamped for the festivities.
This game is all treats and no tricks and is a collaboration between Disney and Funko! Let’s take a closer look!
The Haunted Mansion board game features an illustrated board detailing many of the quirky things you’ll find in the mansion. This includes some special edition Hitchhiking Ghost figures. It’s up to players to move around the mansion, down the corridors, through the seance room and avoid some not-so-happy haunts like Constance Hatchaway in the process!
As you wind your way through the haunted house, you’ll collect ghost cards. Each of the cards has different point values. At the end of your journey, the player with the most points wins!
Disney and Funko advise that the game is suitable for ages 8+ and can accommodate 2-6 players. According to a recent piece in Variety, it takes about half an hour to finish a full game.
Also, trust us when we say that the game is not as simple or as “straight” forward as it looks! The rotating hallway changes direction which alters the location of the players. This means the winner will remain a mystery until the last cards have been selected!
In celebration of Disney’s 50th Anniversary, the Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits board game features new artwork, glow-in-the-dark happy haunts, and comes complete with a 50th Anniversary seal making it an awesome collector’s item!
The Haunted Mansion Boardgame retails for $26.00 and is currently available on Amazon here.
