Hasbro is in charge of creating most of the board games based on this Netflix franchise. The totally original games based on the series are as follows:
Eggo – card game
The Kellogs frozen waffles are a recurring element in stranger things. We first see them when Eleven robs a couple of boxes at a supermarket. Later, Netflix used this mark in the promo from the second season of the series.
The card game by Hasbro refers to this product. His dynamic is similar to UNO. The goal is to get rid of all the cards to escape from ‘The Other Side’ (Upside Down). It’s a fast game. Each player plays one of the characters from the series: Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Eleven, Hopper or Barb. Cards are then thrown into the center choosing an order. Depending on the card we play, we can force an opponent to draw two cards from the deck, reverse the turn of the game, summon the Demogorgon, or send someone to ‘The Other Side’. The ultimate goal of the game is that let’s get rid of all the cards being on the good side. But it won’t be that simple. There are cards capable of creating a rift and returning everyone to the Upside Down. Or even swap positions between those inside and those outside. A total of 2 to 6 players can play. The packaging of the game is very cool, as it represents a toaster, with the two Eggo waffles that contain the playing cards, which are circular. They say that it is a bit more complicated than UNO, which is going to be a great challenge for many, but in return, there can be several winners per game.
