Funko Games plan to release a number of new games through 2022.

Disney Big Thunder sets players in the cursed mining town of Tumbleweed where they dig for gold, grow their mining operations, and invest in town businesses in an attempt to strike it rich. The game features a sculpted mountain peak and mine tray reminiscent of the classic Disney Parks attraction upon which the game is based. Marbles roll down mining shafts on every turn, which need to be placed into players' mine carts. This deck-building card game features landslides, dynamite, and dinosaur discoveries. The game is designed for 2-4 players, aged 9+, and plays in roughly 45 minutes.

The Disney Happiest Day Game is set in the Magic Kingdom park and allows players to discover Disney themed attractions and meet characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto, who are wearing special park-touring outfits. Along the way, players share their favorite ways to spend the day. Tinker Bell travels to the top of the castle which then transforms the board game from day to night. The game features an illustrated, double-sided game board depicting the Magic Kingdom park, as well as a 3D Cinderella Castle which Tinker Bell flies over. The game is designed for 2-6 players, aged 5+, and plays in roughly 20 minutes.

In Disney Return of the Headless Horseman players work together to get Ichabod to the covered bridge before the Headless Horseman heads him off. This game is based off of the Disney animated classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and is set in the town of Sleepy Hollow as players spin a tree to draw cards, then put Ichabod on the tree for a frightful ride. There is adjustable gameplay so that the strategy can be reduced or made more challenging depending on the family. The game is designed for 2-4 players, aged 6+, and plays in roughly 15 minutes.
