It's now available for pre-order.
Having our favorite movies or shows mashed up with a totally new product or game is like a slice of heaven. We go nuts when we come across some really cool merchandise that makes us adore the classics even more. It was way back in February when Ravensburger's board game announced that they would be making a themed-version of the 1993 Disney film Hocus Pocus. You remember that one don't you?
The Sanderson sisters are back in action with their wicked potions and it's up to you, and maybe five of your family members or friends, to take on the role of brave adventurers to stop them.
The game will be released on July 26 but it up for pre-order already. To win, players will have to work together and stop the Sanderson witches from completing their nasty potion meant to endanger all of Salem's children. According to the description, "in this cooperative card game, players work together to protect Salem’s children and stop the Sanderson sisters from completing their wicked potion before the sun rises. Play potion ingredients to the cauldron and match all the colors or ingredients. Binx will offer a helping hand, while Winifred, Mary, and Sarah cast spells to thwart your plans. Use tricks like Burning Rain of Death and Billy Butcherson to help you along the way!"
It's really a perfect gift for families and Hocus Pocus fans alike. Whether you're playing with a hardcore following of the cult-classic movie or just people who like board games in general, this game will suit any occasion. The game allows for 2-6 players from ages 8 and up and takes approximately 30 minutes to play. If you have any trouble understanding the rules of the game, the instructions are clear in a high-quality, step-by-step rulebook that accompanies the package.
The Game is already live on Amazon for just $19.99. The box will come with 50 Ingredient cards, a Witch board, 13 spell cards, a Sun token, 4 trick tokens, a rulebook, and one black cat Binx meeple. This is the second bit of exciting news that has dropped this week for all the Hocus Pocus fanboys and girls. Even with an ongoing pandemic, we are excited about what the rest of the year has to offer.
Disney announced a while earlier that the original Hocus Pocus movie is now coming to 4K Ultra HD for the very first time. Fans can check out Best Buy's exclusive SteelBook edition of the film in 4K + Digital, for some really fantastic artwork designed by Matt Ferguson.
For those of you who don't know, Ferguson is the one who produced the artwork for Marvel's penultimate Infinity Sage 4K Blu-ray box set in 2019. You can pre-order the SteelBook exclusive here at Best Buy for $27.99 or the standard Hocus Pocus Blu-ray for $22.99. Do note that shipping on the Hocus Pocus 4K Blu-ray is slated for September 15th so you'll receive it well before Halloween. This follows the 25th anniversary Blu-ray editions of Hocus Pocus in 2018.
