Model maker Funko announced the Funkoverse series of games in July last year.
The move into board games follows their acquisition of Forrest-Pruzan Creative and initial games included the likes of Funkoverse Harry Potter, Funkoverse DC and Funkoverse Rick and Morty.
Revealed for the Q1 2020 release schedule, is the Jurassic Park Funkoverse Strategy game. It comes with four character models from the original film; Doctor Grant, Ellie Satler, John Ray Arnold and one Velociraptor. There’s also 4 character bases, character cards, 2 item cards, status cards, cooldown tracks, 1 double-sided map, 12 game tokens, 15 game markers, 6 dice, 21 points and a starting player marker.
You can play the Jurassic Park game as a standalone or add it to your collection of other Funkoverse games. It costs $39.99 and retailers such as the specialist Pop in A Box, are already offering pre-orders.
The other Jurassic Park Funko release this week is the Expandalone set. Expandalones are a clever idea which can be played as a one-shot scenario, added into a larger Funkoverse collection or both.
The Jurassic Park Expandalone set adds two more models; Dr Ian Malcom, the character made so famous by Jeff Goldblum and the T-Rex. I can see how you might use the T-Rex to deal with the Velicoratper, but that might leave you with a larger problem.
In the box, there are bases and character cards for the models, two double-sided scenario cards, item cards, status cards, cooldown tracks, a new double-sided map, 6 game tokens, 13 game markers, 6 dice, 11 points, a starting player marker and an instruction set.
The Expandalone is slightly cheaper than the main game and has a recommended retail price of $24.99. Pop In A Box estimates a UK release date of March 2020 for this box.
