Fans of Netflix series, Ozark, Squid Game, and Stranger Things, will soon be able to immerse themselves into these series even more – thanks to a partnership between Asmodee and Netflix to adapt the series into board and/or card-based games.
With the Ozark, Squid Game, and Stranger Things: Attack of the Mind Flayer games, fans will no longer be watching the series; they’d be involved in the series. Well, kind of.
Here’s the official description of each game:
Ozark is a territory control game for 2-5 players. Choose a faction, vie for money, and then influence and control locations from the series like Lickety Splitz and the Missouri Belle. The player with the most stashed money at the end of the game wins! Who can launder the most money, you or the Byrdes?
Bring home the international sensation, competing for victory and survival in Squid Game. In this 3-6 players game, each contestant has a team of up to 12 members and competes in six games featured on the show: Red Light/Green Light, Dalgona, Tug of War, Marbles, Glass Bridge and Squid Game. The first team member to reach the Squid Head after completing all the games wins.
Stranger Things: Attack of the Mind Flayer brings the terrifying psychic powers of the Mind Flayer to the social deduction genre for an Upside Down good time. A hidden role game designed for 4-10 players, two teams go head-to-head and uncover who is sane and who has been possessed by the Mind Flayer.
Save for Stranger Things game, which is developed by board game creator Repos Production, both Ozark and Squid Game are developed by Mixlore, a France-based game publisher. All three games will be available starting on July 30, priced at US$24.86 a pop, exclusively at Walmart.
