Funko Games will make The Goonies: Never Say Die
board game and Under the Goondocks
expansion available to game retailers early next year, following its initial launch as a Target exclusive.
The Goonies: Never Say Die is an “overlord” style adventure game in which one player assumes the role of “Goondocks Master,” controlling villains like the Fratellis and One-Eyed Willie, while the other players control the heroes Mikey, Mouth, Chunk, Data, and Sloth. The hero players work together, trying to solve puzzles and other challenges through nine adventures.
The game features a game board that can be modified through the use of 4 terrain tiles, 8 sculpted plastic miniatures, 9 custom dice styled to look like pirate gems, 1 Goondocks Master screen, 8 character placards, 22 foe movers with bases, 126 cards, 120 tokens, and the Adventure Guide. Designed by the Prospero Hall design studio (Disney Villainous
), the game is intended for 2 to 5 players, ages 12 and up. Adventures take a little under an hour to play. MSRP is $34.99.
