If you’re looking for the ultimate gift this holiday season, then you could do worse than buying your horror geek loved ones an official Stranger Things Ouija board.
Yup, you read that right. Those lovely folks behind the coolest TV show this side of 1984 have teamed up with Hasbro to create their very own branded version of the classic spirit board, yours for only $20.00!
The premise of the board is the same as its always been – ‘players’ communicate with spirits by placing their fingertips on the planchette, and asking a series of questions. The spirits will then reply by spelling out the answers using the letters and numbers inscribed on the board. However, unlike traditional Ouija boards, the Stranger Things Ouija board has a layout much like the Christmas lights Joyce Byers uses to converse with her son, Will, after he get’s lost in the Upside Down during season 1. Unfortunately, the lights are decorative only, which is a shame, but considering how sparse merchandise for the show has been, beggars can’t be choosers.
Here’s the official blurb from the box:
“Gather around the Ouija: Stranger Things Edition game, if you dare, and unlock secrets from a mysterious and mystifying world of the Upside Down. Inspired by the Netflix Original Series, Stranger Things, this game board features the alphabet spelled out with Christmas lights like in the iconic light wall scene from the show (board does not light up). Summon the courage to ask the Ouija board questions about what happened in the Upside Down, as well as anything else you’d like to know.”
The release of the Ouija board coincides with the release of the first season on DVD and Blu-ray (at last), as well as an all new Stranger Things card game and an official Monopoly, in which the traditional houses and hotels are replaced with Will Byers’ hideouts.
How cool are all of these? What’s your favourite Stranger Things merchandise so far? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to like and share.
