In Disney’s Kingdom Hearts Perilous Pursuit, players must take on the role of popular characters from the video game series including Sora, Goofy, Donald Duck, Kairi, and Riku and work together to save the universe from the Heartless. In order to win, they must manage to close off six worlds before the Heartless can overwhelm two of them.
The game comes with 5 player boards, 14 double-sided world cards, 30 item cards, 75 chip pieces, 1 world marker, 6 dice, and 5 trackers. It is intended for 2 to 5 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in about 45 minutes. MSRP is $29.99.
Acting as Mikey, Brand, Mouth, Data, Andy, Stef, Chunk, and Sloth, the players are trying to recover One-Eyed Willy’s lost treasure. Each character has unique skills they can use to help the group decode the clues and ultimately reach The Inferno, One-Eyed Willy’s pirate ship, all while trying to avoid the notorious Fratelli family.
Earlier games in the Coded Chronicles series were inspired by Scooby-Doo (see “The Op reveals ‘Scooby-Doo: Escape from the Haunted Mansion’”) and the horror movie The Shining (see “The Op Invites Players to Flee in ‘The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel’”).
This fall will also see the launch of The Op’s Harry Potter Talisman game (see “The Op Unveils a ‘Harry Potter’-Themed ‘Talisman’ Board Game”).
