It might be the best season of the year–crisp weather, trick or treating and costumes, awesome new candy, and great seasonal movies.
Of course, we are talking about the Sanderson Sisters and Hocus Pocus!
If Halloween is a big deal for your family like it is for mine, then you are on the same lookout for great Halloween games for kids that I am. Besides, if there can be Christmas in July, why can’t there be Halloween in July too?
Hocus Pocus Board Game
I think most of us has seen the Disney Hocus Pocus movie. I mean who could forget Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker trying to gather all the children of Salem?
And now, you can even buy a Hocus Pocus game to play with your family after you watch the movie! The cooperative card game is now available on Amazon and it looks like so much fun. I love new board games!
How Do You Play The Hocus Pocus Board Game?
As a cooperative game, the Hocus Pocus game is great for families as the goal is to work together on a common quest versus competing with each other.
These style games are especially helpful when playing with multiple children of varying ages, which makes Hocus Pocus a perfect addition to your Halloween party games. Since the way to win is to work with the other players, every player is a valuable asset.
What Is The Hocus Pocus Game About?
According to the description, “Players work together to protect Salem’s children and stop the Sanderson sisters from completing their wicked potion before the sun rises.
Play potion ingredients to the cauldron and match all the colors or ingredients.
Binx will offer a helping hand, while Winifred, Mary, and Sarah cast spells to thwart your plans. Use tricks like Burning Rain of Death and Billy Butcherson to help you along the way!”
Sounds simple enough! To sum up the game play… You thwart the witches and their wretched evil potion to save the lives of Salem’s children with the help of Thackery Binx. Watch out for the witches’ spell…no problem at all. And it definitely sounds like something hocus pocus fans will love.
Who Can Play This Board Game?
The Hocus Pocus game is recommended for players ages 8 and up, and can be played by 2 to 6 players.
Younger players could probably play, but keep in mind some of this may be a little scary. A foul spell and terrible potion may be too much for younger kids.
What Does The Game Come With?
Each game comes with a cauldron board, 50 ingredient cards, a game board, 13 spell cards, a sun token, 4 trick tokens, a rulebook, and one black cat Binx meeple.
Where Can I Purchase It?
You can currently order the Hocus Pocus board game on Amazon right now for just $19.99! Ravensburger is the maker and they’re well-known for their amazing board games and even roleplaying games. I am super excited to play with with my family.
Or, this could make a great gift for any fans of the movie you may know. The Hocus Pocus film is a timeless classic, so I think the simple question is…. are you ready to stop the Sanderson sisters?
And remember! Don’t ever light the black flame candle in the old Sanderson house!
