In the Funkoverse Strategy Game, you combine your favorite characters and go head-to-head in four exciting game scenarios. Use your characters' unique abilities to gain points and achieve victory!
Each turn, you select one of your characters and perform two actions. Each character has access to basic actions like moving and challenges as well as several unique abilities that may be performed only by spending ability tokens. Funkoverse uses an innovative "cooldown" system — the more powerful the ability, the longer it will take for the ability token to become available again — so players have to spend their ability tokens wisely. Each character in Funkoverse is unique, so players are encouraged to try out different combinations of characters and items in order to discover their favorite synergies and powerful strategies for all four game scenarios.
Funkoverse Strategy Game: Harry Potter 4-Pack includes unique playable characters, including Albus Dumbledore, Severus Snape, Rubeus Hagrid, and Dolores Umbridge from the Wizarding World!
Combine this with other Funkoverse Strategy Games for the ultimate wizarding duel of epic proportions!
The one redeeming feature of the Harry Potter series is Severus Snape (wickedly portrayed by Alan Rickman in the movies). Snape's inclusion in this set alone was enough to convince me to buy it and then steal it (a long story). The Funkoverse games pit different characters in an infinitely variable range of bouts between various characters. The one gripe I would mention with this set is the board and the somewhat vague obstruction ends that make it unclear just how much visibility a character has from behind it. Beyond that, this set has the usual high standard of the company. It looks good on the table and is great for those of us who love good components that hands can really roll over.
The game play is not that different from the other sets, but with new characters, you get a whole set of new strategic problems (and opportunities). With the variety it is easy to become the victim of an unseen gambit from your opponents. This makes for a dynamic and hard-to-predict game.
I like the Funkoverse series and I really like this set. You definitely don't have to be a Potter fan to enjoy this, but I guess it helps.
