Game and puzzle company Ravensburger first announced the game and gave a sneak preview at the Toy Fair 2020, and now it’s finally here! In Hocus Pocus: The Game($20), “Players will work together to ruin the potions concocted by the legendary Sanderson sisters to save the lives of Salem’s children before the sun rises!” You’ll be able to use famous tricks from the movie throughout the game, like the Burning Rain of Death, and fans will recognize lots of familiar faces, including appearances from characters like Binx the cat and Billy Butcherson. The game box is also designed to look like Winifred Sanderson’s beloved “Book.” Keep reading to shop the game now (just make sure you don’t light the Black Flame Candle).
Hocus Pocus is a 1993 Disney comedy film directed by Kenny Ortega and written by Neil Cuthbert and Mick Garris. The film stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, with Omri Katz, Thora Birch, and Vinessa Shaw in supporting roles. The film follows a villainous comedic trio of witches who are inadvertently resurrected by a teenage boy in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween night.
Hocus Pocus has gone on to be a Halloween classic amongst kids from the 90s. So naturally coming out with a board game when Halloween is starting to peak around the corner only makes sense.
