USAopoly and FOX Consumer Products have teamed up to launch the first official Die Hard licensed tabletop game.
Based on the 1988 film, “Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game” will launch this spring.
“Die Hard’s influence over the action-thriller genre is staggering, so we were beyond excited for the opportunity to harness the movie’s expert blend of action, intelligence and drama into a unique tabletop experience,” says Pat Marino, lead game designer, USAopoly. “We are developing a game that will deeply resonate with Die Hard enthusiasts, incorporating even the slightest details to create a rich and entertaining experience that properly pays tribute to arguably the greatest action movie of all time.”
The game will pit protagonist John McClane against others acting as thieves.
“The Die Hard board game from USAopoly provides an engaging touchpoint for fans seeking a nostalgic trip back to Nakatomi Tower, and three decades after the film’s release, allows a new generation of fans to play a unique game experience showcasing this incredible property,” says Federico San Martin, vice president, global toys and hardlines, 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.
