I’m a huge fan of all things related to stop-motion animation and especially Coraline. Not only does LAIKA do a brilliant job with the animation, its also a fantastic Neil Gaiman novel. The people over at WizKids agree because they’re releasing a game related to it. Check out the information below all about Coraline: Beware the Other Mother coming soon.
WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Coraline: Beware the Other Mother, a new game based on the beloved stop motion animated film from LAIKA!
In this cooperative 1-4 player game, players are Ghost Children who have been captured by the Beldam (the Other Mother) and who now seek to help Coraline free her parents from the Beldam’s clutches. They do this by guiding her through the Other World as she attempts to find the items that will allow her to escape: the Skeleton Key, the Eyes of the Ghost Children, and the Snow Globe. The game has a timer in the form of the Moon Deck. The Moon Deck has 6 Moon Cards, and every time the Moon is advanced, players will reveal and discard the top card of the Moon Deck. If the final Moon Card is ever revealed, the players immediately lose the game.
The Beldam is controlled by the Beldam Story Deck, a separate deck of cards that will challenge Coraline throughout the game. She may be forced to drop an object, discard a card, or advance the moon. If the Beldam Story Deck is empty at the start of the Beldam Phase, the players lose.
If Coraline manages to collect the 5 Object Tokens she needs to escape while in the Living Room, and the Beldam isn’t in the room with her, the players win! Featuring all your favorite characters from the film, from Wybie and Mr. Bobinsky to Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, Coraline: Beware the Other Mother is coming soon, so preorder it at your Friendly Local Game Store today!
