20 Apr Funko Games Debuts Star Trek™ Cryptic and Scream The Game
Leading Tabletop Game Developer Also Reveals Original NUCK TATS and Contemporary Refresh of ‘90’s Strategy Hit Big Boss.
WHAT: Ahead of GAMA EXPO, Funko Games unveiled four captivating new board and party games. The leading tabletop games developer announced today that the new games will include those inspired by popular fandoms, an updated board game classic, and an original pick-up-and-play party game perfect for casual gatherings.
For those looking for the experience that will take them to the next frontier, Star Trek™ Cryptic allows fans to play through missions from the beloved era of Star Trek™: The Next Generation. If the latest slasher movie got you in the mood for thrills to last the whole year, Scream The Game is a cooperative party game of survival where the all-to-familiar voice of Ghost Face calls the players! The first-ever English edition of the classic game by acclaimed designer Wolfgang Kramer, Big Boss emerges with a refreshed art-deco and early industrial design aesthetic, while the new Funko Games original NUCK TATS is the next word game obsession with its tattoo-inspired gameplay where only the cleverest will win.
Each game in this diverse lineup hits shelves this June. Below are more details on the upcoming products:

NUCK TATS are messages tattooed on someone’s knuckles. If it fits, anything goes. Each round, one player reveals a customer—a celebrity, character, mythical creature, whoever—and everyone else writes NUCK TATS for that customer. The best tat wins the round.
