TheĀ Funkoverse Strategy Board Game is designed for two-to-four players, at ages ten and up. The core box, which prominently features four POP!-ified character pieces from DC Comics's Batman, also has two basic characters (not shown), two maps ("Gotham City Streets" and "The Joker's Carnival Chaos"), bases for the characters to stay put on, and a whole slew of accessories for use in this light strategy game.

If you're as crazy about Funko POP!s as I know a lot of you likely are, you should get your hands on these games as soon as you can, because I predict that they won't stay on shelves for very long.
