I love the 1991 film The Rocketeer and now Funko Games is bringing a table top story based on the 30 year old film with the new The Rocketeer: Fate of the Future.
This is a two player game that has one player keeping the rocket plans hidden from the other player.
Here’s the official description:
“The Rocketeer: Fate of the Future Game: Trouble is brewing high above the city of angels! The mysterious Rocketeer —who can blast through the skies with an ingenious jet-pack—must stop a sinister plot! Hollywood actor Neville Sinclair is scheming to steal the rocket’s blueprints. This breakthrough of modern engineering could revolutionize the future of flight. But in Sinclair’s hands, it could fuel the dark future of warfare. Play as the heroes or the villains in this action-packed strategy game for two players. Whether for good or evil, you will determine the fate of the future!”
The game includes seven sculpted miniatures of Rocketeer, Sinclair, Jenny, Peevy, Lothar, and Valentine, as well as one modeled after the Luxembourg. The game retails for $24.99 and copies will be available at Gen Con for purchase. The game will hit retail in the late fall.
Here are the “Gameplay Features”:
- Inspired by the 1991 Disney adventure movie.
- Includes seven beautifully sculpted miniatures of the Rocketeer, Jenny, Peevy, Sinclair, Lothar, Valentine, and the Luxembourg, a high-flying zeppelin.
- A two-player strategy game that immerses the players into the events of the movie and the golden age of Hollywood.
- Original illustrations and design that evokes the art deco style of the 1930s.
- Play a game of cat-and-mouse with the rocket plans and keep them hidden from your opponent.
The game will debut at GenCon in September and come to stores this fall at a price of $24.99.
