Help E.T. Phone Home
Funko Games will publish E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home Game in 2022. The release coincides with the 40th anniversary of the beloved film. The board game is a cooperative game for 2-4 players focused on the bicycle chase scene from the movie. Players take on the roles of Elliot, Gertie, Mike, and Greg as they race around town on their bikes trying to elude pursuing federal agents. The players must gather all the parts E.T. needs to assemble the communication device to contact the mothership. Then, players must get E.T. to the clearing when the mothership arrives to pickup E.T.
Each character is represented by a miniature on a bicycle with a basket. The basket can hold a part of the communication device or it can hold the adorable E.T. miniature. The game board is a grid of streets with some diagonal shortcuts to help the heroes escape agents chasing them in cars and on foot. The agents are depicted by standees.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home Game is scheduled for a retail release this summer.
