Second game to the right and play 'til morning
What happens when you take adorable pop culture referencing figures, and add in a sprinkle of board games? The Funkoverse! Described as an action-packed strategy game featuring some of your favourite characters, the Funkoverse has already seen the likes of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Alice in Wonderland, and many more. Generally easy to pick up and play, and possible to combine different universes into a single game, it comes as no surprise that the Funkoverse is expanding further, where today, it brings news of Peter Pan, and Universal Monsters on their way.
Funkoverse: Peter Pan
In the perfect example of never growing up, Peter Pan is diving into the tabletop, with four game scenarios, and memorable locations, such as that of Mermaid Lagoon, and The Jolly Roger. Inside the pack will be exclusive Pop Funko's for Peter Pan, and for Captian Hook, which you'll use as your playable character with specific abilities.
We’re off to Neverland! Second star to the right and straight on to the Funkoverse! Play out the ongoing conflict between Peter Pan and the nefarious Captain Hook. Battle across the deck of the Jolly Roger and through the lost Boys’ Treehouse! Combine Funkoverse Walt Disney’s Peter Pan with other Funkoverse sets to go head-to-head with other favorite characters in exciting game scenarios.

The game will cost $24.99 (GBP not confirmed), will take around 20-60 minutes to play for 1-2 players, and will be in Summer of 2022.
Funkoverse: Universal Monsters
You perhaps didn't know you needed a game that offered collectables of commonly known monsters, but in seeing exclusive Dracula, The Bride of Frankenstein, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and The Invisible Man, you might change your mind. In this game you might be assembling the Bride of Frankenstein from robbed graves to unleash her undead prowess, or ambushing and abducting rivals with the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
