Family game night can end with a whimper when a young player loses. To avoid that snafu, Wonder Forge comes to the rescue with a board game inspired by Disney Pixar’s hotly anticipated animated film, “Incredibles 2.”
The Incredibles Save the Day Game is hitting stores in tandem with the June 15 release of the sequel to 2004’s “The Incredibles.” In the new film, Holly Hunter’s Elastigirl is reunited with Craig T. Nelson’s Mr. Incredible, and Sarah Vowell as their daughter, Violet. (Their son Dash is voiced by newcomer Huck Milner.)
In the game, 1 to 4 players (ages 6 and older), take on the role of a member of the family and work as a team to fix problems around Metroville, defeat the villains (Screenslaver, Screech, Voyd, and more), and rescue baby Jack-Jack teleports. The novelty is that your family wins as the team of heroes that they are, or — whoops — they all go down together. When playing cards reveal a crime or a road has been destroyed, the game board changes, so your Incredible family is never playing the same game twice.
Each player has unique powers which they can use to solve dilemmas, while playing as a team encourages cooperation. Win or lose, your family members are attempting to save the day — and make Incredible memories — together.
