Now I have a board game. Ho-ho-ho.

Yippee Kayak Mother Buckets, it's time to head out to the coast, get together, and have a few laughs as USAopoly announce the best Christmas movie in the history of film is coming to the tabletop. Welcome to the party, pal - it's Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game!

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist will feature a one versus many, asymmetric mechanic which will see one player take on the role of New York's finest cop trying to rescue hostages, while other players attempt to foil his plan, steal from the vault, and avenge Karl's brother (okay, I might have added the last one in).

Pat Marino, Lead Game Designer, USAopoly, had this to say about it in a statement.

"Die Hard's influence over the action-thriller genre is staggering, so we were beyond excited for the opportunity to harness the movie's expert blend of action, intelligence and drama into a unique tabletop experience. We are developing a game that will deeply resonate with Die Hard enthusiasts, incorporating even the slightest details to create a rich and entertaining experience that properly pays tribute to arguably the greatest action movie of all time."

USAopoly (recently rebranded as the OP) are becoming infamous for their IP board games - recent releases include Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, and Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls. So my hopes are as high as Nakatomi Tower for this release - let's hope they don't do a Gruber.

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist will be released in Spring 2019. So, whether you think you are an exceptional thief, Roy Rodgers, or a buff Germanic brother out for revenge (ja) - make sure you secure your copy at your FLGS or the OP now. Happy Trails, Hans.

Quiz: I've misquoted John's most famous line - but what show is the incorrect quote from?
