Funko Games Announced E.T. Board Game For Summer Release

Funko Games today unveiled E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home Game, coming to North America and Europe. Inspired by the classic film from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment – E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, the game’s arrival will be perfectly timed for the film’s 40th anniversary this year, introducing a new generation to Elliott, Michael, Greg, and Gertie – who will work together to get E.T. home. The game will lead off the 2022 slate of games from Funko, which will also include an expansion to The Goonies and The Warriors: Come Out And Play as well as a new release in the Marvel Battleworld series.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home is a cooperative game that re-creates the film’s iconic bicycle chase scene. Players race around the neighborhood using ramps and shortcuts to avoid federal agents bent on capturing E.T. 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.

E.T.: Lightyears From Home is scheduled for a summer release with an MSRP of $29.99.
