A new game board game will be released this year and the new game is based on Steven Spielberg’s classic 80s sci-fi movie E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. The game is a co-op adventure in which participants have to get E.T. back on his spaceship before his “Heartlight” fades… and dies.
The game is called E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home, and you can check out the description of the game below:
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home is a cooperative game that re-creates the film’s iconic bicycle chase scene. Players As players have come to expect from Funko Games, this game features a beautifully illustrated board, components, and miniatures – including a charming miniature E.T. that fits inside the kids’ bicycle basket.
The game lets you play as Elliot, Gertie, Mike, or Greg “as they try to find parts for E.T. to create a communication instrument to contact his home planet. You race around the neighborhood using ramps and shortcuts to avoid federal agents bent on capturing E.T. To win, you must find all the parts of the device and get E.T. to the clearing when the mothership arrives to pick him up.”
The E.T. board game has been designed by Prospero Hall and it’s explained that the game will last for 30 minutes.
The game will be released on the film’s 40th anniversary. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home is for four people and will cost $29.99.
