USAopoly Announces Harry Potter: Death Eaters Rising

June 30, 2019

USAopoly® (The OP) announced their latest Wizarding World-themed creation: HARRY POTTER™: Death Eaters™ Rising.

Based on the fifth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Death Eaters Rising is a cooperative card and dice game where players must join forces to fight the growing threat of Lord Voldemort™ and his Death Eaters. HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising flies onto shelves this fall.

HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising captures the difficulties and terrors Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger faced during their fifth year at Hogwarts as they scramble to persuade the wizarding world of Voldemort’s return,” said Pat Marino, Lead Game Designer, USAopoly. “Just as setbacks and devastation befell Harry and his friends during their journey, players can expect an equally challenging path to success in Death Eaters Rising that makes victory much more rewarding.”

In HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising, each player must assemble teams of witches and wizards from the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore’s Army and Hogwarts to fight against the growing threat of the Dark Lord. Starting with either Harry Potter or Hermione Granger™ representing Dumbledore’s Army, Minerva McGonagall™ or Albus Dumbledore™ from Hogwarts™, or Nymphadora Tonks™ or Sirius Black™ from the Order of the Phoenix, players will be able to rally a variety of year-5 characters to their cause. These include fan-favorite characters, Ginny Weasley™, Luna Lovegood™, Alastor Moody, Mrs. Norris, Severus Snape™ and Rubeus Hagrid™. The collective armies and players must then work together to stop the spread of dark influence throughout the wizarding world.

Players will have to battle Dark Wizards Peter Pettigrew, Bellatrix Lestrange, Lucius Malfoy and others that bear the dark mark for control of key wizarding world locations, including the Ministry of Magic, Diagon Alley™ and Hogsmeade Village. To be successful, players must vanquish Voldemort’s Death Eaters and eventually defeat You-Know-Who before they corrupt and take control the wizarding world.

HARRY POTTER: Death Eaters Rising is designed for 2-4 players ages 11 and up, with an estimated runtime of 45-60 minutes.

The cooperative card and dice game will be available this fall for $49.95 MSRP.

USAOpoly Announces Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game

March 23, 2019

USAopoly® (The OP) and FOX Consumer Products announced plans to release Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game this spring. This is the first time the suspenseful action classic, which made its theatrical debut in 1988, has been officially licensed for a board game.

“Die Hard’s influence over the action-thriller genre is staggering, so we were beyond excited for the opportunity to harness the movie’s expert blend of action, intelligence and drama into a unique tabletop experience,” said Pat Marino, Lead Game Designer, USAopoly. “We are developing a game that will deeply resonate with Die Hard enthusiasts, incorporating even the slightest details to create a rich and entertaining experience that properly pays tribute to arguably the greatest action movie of all time.”

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game will leverage one-versus-many, asymmetric gameplay to pit protagonist John McClane against others acting as thieves, cooperating to foil the hero’s plan, which is to save the hostages in the iconic Nakatomi Plaza high-rise. Movie buffs and hobby game enthusiasts will appreciate the forthcoming release’s distinct homage to the 1988 film, which packs rules and gameplay to the air vents with callbacks to Die Hard’s most memorable scenes, characters, and events.

Federico San Martin, Vice President of Global Toys and Hardlines, 20th Century Fox Consumer Products added: “The Die Hard board game from USAopoly provides an engaging touch point for fans seeking a nostalgic trip back to Nakatomi Tower and, three decades after the film’s release, allows a new generation of fans to play a unique game experience showcasing this incredible property.”

The OP, the award-winning publisher behind hit party games Telestrations® and Blank Slate™, as well as popular hobby games Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War and Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, has worked with FOX Consumer Products for 13 years. The company has created compelling board game experiences for a variety of their licenses, including Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama and Planet of the Apes.

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game will be available Spring 2019 in select retailers, encouraging friends to come out to the table, get together, have a few laughs. Debates over whether the title will be considered a Christmas game or an action game to play year-round are expected to surface among fans waiting to relive the pop-culture hit on the table top. More information will be shared in the coming months on The OP website.

USAopoly Releases Fantastic Beasts: Perilous Pursuit

Oct 20, 2018

Never before has one suitcase become such a monstrous ordeal! What started with a simple mix-up now means four brave friends must contain magical creatures that have escaped in New York City. Now that we know “where to find them”, the time has come for you to tame them!

Unlock the challenge today with Fantastic Beasts™: Perilous Pursuit, a game of chase and chance, available in stores now!

Take on the role of one of four united adventurers—Newt Scamander™, Tina Goldstein™, Jacob Kowalski™, and Queenie Goldstein™—for a journey that began with everyday business and turned into dire damage control.

12 Beasts that have made it from the Wizarding World to Central Park are to thank for this game’s unpredictability, including the trouble-making Niffler, aggressive Graphorn, magical Murtlap, and more! These creatures can only be guided back into Newt’s suitcase with the cooperative efforts of every player, who will each take turns rolling six custom dice to gain the skill and ability required to cast spells.

Press your luck and collect the sets needed in a race to overpower the Beasts and the effects of their damage. In addition to quick thinking and communication, 30 included Insight cards assist with restoring health and increasing your odds of winning. Be sure to keep the Beast Movement Token from getting further away from the suitcase; each move matters to ensure everyone stays safe, or the game is over!

Play a quick game to learn dice combinations, or extend every session to get to know the best ways to stay on top of the game. As each player completes sets, the others can capitalize on their powers to capture all the runaway Beasts! So you don’t have to know the Erumpant dance to win; the more you play, the more you can guide the way to victory—or in this case, a trail leading back to Newt’s luggage.

Relive the suspense of the story that preludes Harry Potter by taking on Fantastic Beasts™: Perilous Pursuit, available at your local game store or online today!

The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 Coming from USAOpoly and Mondo

June 23, 2017

In The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31, relive John Carpenter’s sci-fi cult classic as a hidden identity game designed to push you to the edge. Play as one of a dozen characters like helicopter pilot MacReady, mechanic Childs, or station manager Garry. Face sabotage and infection as you investigate the facility—gather gear, battle The Thing, expose any imitations among you, and escape Outpost 31!

It is the start of the bleak, desolate Antarctic winter when a group of NSF researchers manning the claustrophobic, isolated U.S. Outpost 31 comes into contact with a hostile extraterrestrial lifeform. Bent on assimilating Earth’s native species, this being infiltrates the facility—creating a perfect imitation of one of the Outpost 31 crew. The staff frantically begin a sweep of the base, desperate to purge this alien infection before escaping to warn McMurdo Station that somewhere, out there in the frigid darkness, something horrible is waiting.

Tension mounts and paranoia ensues as you question who you can trust in the ultimate race to save humanity.

The game has been designed to be as authentically cinematic as possible, ensuring that the players will experience the paranoia and tension that makes the film so great.

The regular version of the game features artwork and designs by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative. The Mondo exclusive version, sold exclusively through MondoTees.com, is limited to 1,982 copies, and features different packaging artwork by Jock. The limited edition game will also come with a Mondo print, enamel pin and two additional sculpted movers: the Norwegian character and the Palmer Thing.
