Prepare to make a calming circle, because the Sanderson sisters are stepping into the game world. Disney’s Hocus Pocus: The Game from Ravensburger will have you dodging Winifred, Sarah, and Mary and all their evilness at all costs.
Unlike other board games, this one has players working together. The goal is to prevent the witches from completing their wicked potion before the sun rises. Just like in the Hocus Pocus film, the Sanderson Sisters will try to sabotage your game by casting spells, but you can use help from Thackery Binx the cat, and tricks — like the Rain of Death — to help you along the way.
“Under the light of a full moon on All Hallows’ Eve, you and your friends sneak into the old Sanderson house. On a dare, you light the Black Flame Candle – surely the old stories are just a bunch of hocus pocus. Before you know it, the Sanderson sisters have come back from the dead, ready to brew their terrible potion and suck the lives from the children of Salem. It’s up to you to ruin the witches’ potion and put an end to their terrible deeds forever!” the instructions say. Basically, it’s like you’re inside the movie and have to work your way to a happy ending.
You can order Hocus Pocus: The Game on Amazon for $19.99. It includes one cauldron board, 50 Ingredient cards, a Witch board, 13 Spell cards, a Sun token, four trick tokens, a rulebook, and one Binx meeple. The game can be played with two to eight players ages 8 and older. It takes about 30 minutes to play, so you can get in a round before turning on the movie.
The packaging is just as cool as the actual game. It’s designed to look like Winifred’s spell book and features the witches over their cauldron, obviously up to no good this Halloween.
