Hasbro And Netflix Team Up For Stranger Things Card Game

The second season of Stranger Things is heading our way, and with it comes its very own card game from Hasbro and Netflix, and assumedly Kellogg’s.

So, already this game is a bit odd, hiding as it does in a replica Kellogg’s Eggo package, the favourite food of series’ resident psychic Eleven.

Below is the statement Hasbro gave to i09 about the nature of the card game:

“Play as your favourite characters from the hit NETFLIX Series STRANGER THINGS with the STRANGER THINGS: EGGO CARD GAME! To begin, players choose to play as Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Eleven, Hopper, or Barb and draw four EGGO cards with a variety of suspenseful outcomes.

Cards can either send a player’s character to the UPSIDE DOWN, make an opponent draw two, reverse the order of play, summon the DEMOGORGON, or cause a rift that sends everyone who was RIGHT SIDE Up to the UPSIDE DOWN, and vice versa!

To win and escape the UPSIDE DOWN, get rid of all your EGGO cards before the DEMOGORGON attacks or be toast! The Game includes 106 EGGO-shaped game cards and seven character cards.”

The basis of the game appears to be something akin to Uno, but with added weirdness, which is rather fitting for a series that has such a heavy focus on evoking a sense of nostalgia.

I cannot think of a more fitting way to present a Stranger Things card game than making it Eggo themed. The show does focus heavily upon weird things lurking within seemingly normal, suburbia and this rather embodies that.

It’s a game I really want to give a go, as I think it will be interesting to see how they carry that vibe over to the gameplay.

How would you make a Stranger Things game?
