Stranger Things is getting a collection of classic Hasbro games from the 1980s. The hit Netflix show takes place in the 80s and is pretty much a love letter to the decade's pop culture. Gaming has played a pretty large role in the show since its inception, with one particular game standing above the others. The game in question is obviously Dungeons and Dragons, which has received a really cool retro look with some Stranger Things new additions thrown into the mix.
The International Toy Fair is currently underway in New York City, which is where Hasbro teased their new Stranger Things collection. The aforementioned Dungeons and Dragons game is modeled after the same one that the boys play in the show and it has a weathered look. The game offers fans the chance "to experience the D&D adventure Stranger Things character Mike Wheeler created for his friends" and includes character sheets that are based on classes used in the show, including Will the Wise and Dustin the Dwarf. If that wasn't enough, the game comes with two Demogorgon figures.
Next up on Hasbro's list is the Trivial Pursuit "Back to the '80s" edition. The new spin on the game contains 1500 trivia questions from 6 categories: Movies, TV, Music, Famous People and Events, Trends, Tech and Fun, and Stranger Things. The updated edition comes with a pretty cool twist that fans of the hit show are sure to enjoy. If a player lands on one of the Portal Spaces, that section of the board has to flip and sends all players to the Upside Down where you can lose wedges. It's a pretty clever twist and it looks like a lot of fun.
Last but not least is the Stranger Things mini arcade game. It's made to like an actual old arcade game from the 1980s and features some of the games that have been shown off in Stranger Things, like Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, and Galaxian. Additionally, the miniature device includes exclusive Stranger Things games, which should be a lot of fun. The art surrounding the console is inspired by the show and features Eleven and a Demogorgon, along with the rest of the cast drawn up in a cartoon style.
The Stranger Things Dungeons and Dragons set will be available everywhere games are sold on May 1st and the retail cost is $24.99. The Trivial Pursuit will also be available on May 1st everywhere that games are sold, but it will cost $19.99. The mini arcade game is a Target exclusive and costs $29.99 and it's available May 1st. All of the games are up for pre-order now, so head to your favorite store or online retailer to put one on hold in anticipation for the release. All of the games look like a worthy addition to any Stranger Things fan's collection. You can check out some pictures below, thanks to Buzzfeed.
