Funko Games today unveiled four brand-new games inspired by the world of Indiana Jones, three of which hit shelves today, April 10. The award-winning tabletop gaming studio has developed in collaboration with Lucasfilm a creative and diverse set of titles bound to satisfy gamers and Indiana Jones fans of all ages and experience levels, ranging from intricate strategy adventures to outrageous party games.

Out today, Indiana Jones Cryptic is the first in a new interactive mystery game line of “Puzzles and Pathways Adventures” from Funko Games. In Indiana Jones Cryptic, players follow clues from Dr. Jones’ journal to solve a wide variety of intricate challenges across three separate adventures based on the first three films, using their logic, deduction, and creative thinking. When the journey inevitably leads them into dangerous situations, players must draw their way through tombs, temples, and more while avoiding traps and enemies along the way.
