USAopoly and FOX Consumer Products have partnered for a new board game based on the Die Hard film franchise.

The Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game is a one-versus-many tabletop game. Players of the game can take on the role of Die Hard’s John McClane, Hans Gruber and his henchman. The individual playing John McClane must complete various objectives to save the hostages from Gruber’s henchman. Meanwhile, the thieves must work together to hack the Nakatomi Plaza vault and stop McClane.

USAopoly’s game features a quad-fold board, action cards with callbacks to Die Hard’s most memorable scenes. It will also feature custom-sculpted figures representing McClane, Gruber and his henchman.

“We designed this new game mechanic for Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist to allow fans to play through the same story arcs and character development as in the movie,” says Pat Marino, lead game designer, USAopoly. “As the game progresses through three acts, the board reveals more of itself, bringing about new challenges and objectives for players while increasing the game’s difficulty and complexity to keep everyone engaged.”

Last year, the Die Hard franchise celebrated its 30th anniversary and introduced a slew of new consumer products initiatives in honor of the milestone.
