In the wake of their IT-themed Clue and Monopoly board games, USAopoly – aka The OP – has announced IT: Evil Below:
“Based on the 2017 remake of the Stephen King classic, IT: Evil Below puts you in the middle of Derry, where players will take on the role of the all-vigilant Losers’ Club. Bill Denbrough and his friends are on high alert to overpower Pennywise, the supernatural menace who resurfaces every 27 years with its insatiable appetite for children.
The cooperative strategy game follows the seven heroes as they traverse their neighborhood, using character-specific abilities that maintain the needed courage to defeat Pennywise and cease his mounting abductions. If just one player runs out of health, the objective is failed and Pennywise wins.
Fans of the horror franchise will be drawn to the spine-tingling portrait of the killer, visible from the game’s box top through a translucent, blood-red window.
IT: Evil Below invites 2-7 players aged seventeen and up to immerse themselves in a chilling, edge-of-your seat experience. Challenge fate to overpower Pennywise in numerous Encounters throughout your journey by using specialized abilities, such as Ben’s limitless card hand, which allows him to draw a card and arm himself whenever he must fight Pennywise. Custom dice add an undertone of dread to every fateful roll, but the players must move forward and swallow feat to defeat the grimacing villain.
