USAopoly is unleashing two IT-themed board games this year with Monopoly and Clue

Pennywise, the monstrously terrifying creation from Stephen King’s IT is emerging out from the sewers and into the board gaming space, to turn this lucrative market into the stuff of nightmares, all thanks to Hasbro licensee, USAopoly.

The major board game company has detailed its plans to release not one but two IT-themed board games later this year in the shape of IT Clue and IT Monopoly.

Each game will feature ky characteristics and locations from the films, such as red balloons and the grimey sewer network as seen in th famous horror film and its recent remake. Fans can join The Loser’s Club to stop the flesh-eating clown and save the day.

Clue: IT will take players on a journey from The House on Neibolt Street to Derry Public Library to identify the clown’s killer props, while Derry, Main becomes a real estate paradise in Monopoly: IT.

Clue: IT will be landing this month and Monopoly: IT will be launching later this year.

Presumably they will both be available via the standard means of distribution, and not crawling out of your sink basins…
