Funko releases two new Grinch-themed Christmas games

Inspired by holiday favourite How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Funko Games has brought the classic tale to life in two new games, just in time for the festive season.

Set in Who-ville, Dr. Seuss Merry Grinchmas (MSRP $19.99) is “equal parts sweet family board game and heirloom keepsake” that comes wrapped in shimmering green Cellophane.

While the Whos are busy dreaming of Christmas, the Grinch is slinking around Who-ville trying to stop Christmas coming. Players must work together to collect presents to make the Whos’ holiday dreams come true before the Grinch steals them away. Collect more points than the Grinch by the time Whos start singing to win. The game includes a fabric bag and sculpted Grinch mover, and a beautifully illustrated Who-ville game board. Suitable for 2–6 players aged five and up.

In the Dr. Seuss Grinch Grow Your Heart Card Game (MSRP $6.99), the Grinch is attempting to spoil Christmas by taking the presents, the feast, and even the tree. Players take turns playing as the Whos or the Grinch, and draw cards to choose which Christmas goodies to keep. The Grinch steals cards away to improve his score, but each turn his heart grows. Collect sets and then score your cards to try to get the most points. Suitable for 3–6 players aged six and up.
