New board game is inspired by iconic pop culture brands such as Harry Potter, “Rick & Morty,” DC Comics and “The Golden Girls.”

Funko has announced its new “Funkoverse” board game at this year’s Comic-Con event in San Diego, Calif.

“It’s thrilling to finally share with fans the debut of Funkoverse, the first culture-infused board game from Funko Games,” says Brian Mariotti, chief executive officer, Funko. “The games division underscores our commitment in creating the most innovative and relevant products out on the marketplace. Our employees take great pride in continually discovering new ways to reach the fan in everyone.”

Funkoverse will be available at most major retailers in October. The title comes following the recent announcement of a Funko mobile game from Digital Platforms and Universal Games.
