Eric Lang has designed a Disney game
Spin Master Games is publishing Disney Sidekicks, a cooperative game for 2-4 players designed by Eric M. Lang. Heroes from beloved Disney movies have been locked inside a castle by the villains. Now it is up to the sidekicks to traverse the game board to rescue villagers, defeat villains, and collect locks to open the castle. The game features the following pairings of sidekicks and respective villains:
- Abu and Jafar from Aladdin,
- Gaston and Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast,
- Tinker Bell and Captain Hook from Peter Pan,
- Timon and Pumbaa along with Scar from The Lion King, and
- from Sleeping Beauty, the fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather along with Maleficent.
The components feature a plastic castle to sit in the center of the game board. Each sidekick/villain pairing is represented by two miniatures that share a color to easily identify which ones come from the same movie. Disney Sidekicks is scheduled for a retail release on August 1, 2021.
