Funko is at it again with the nostalgic movie titles heading over to the tabletop. London Toy Fair is live over the course of the week, and publishers have been making awesome announcements regarding new tabletop titles hitting out tables. E.T The Extra-Terrestrial: Light Years From Home is making its way onto our tabletop, as players are trying to make contact from Planet Earth to E.T's home planet.

E.T The Extra-Terrestrial - Light Years From Home // Funko Games

The board game title will take inspiration from the movie, eventually recreating the epic bike chase scene as players will attempt to get E.T back on the mothership to return back to his home planet. Taking on the roles of Elliot, Gertie, Mike ad Greg, players will have to avoid the feds, whilst they search for different parts to make a communication device to return E.T back to safety - three million light-years away! Up across ramps, and down shortcuts: the game marks the 40th Anniversary of the 80's movie playing out the plot by making way across the neighbourhood avoiding the agents, and even taking control of the Mothership!

Inside the box, 2-4 players will get their hands on the illustrated board, components (which are always stunning and relevant when coming from Funko) and game miniatures. And what's even more adorable is that the E.T miniature fits inside the kid's bicycle miniatures!

Are there any other nostalgic board game titles you would like to see on the tabletop?
