Coraline: Beware the Other Mother Now Available

It's been rainy here in Atlanta for a couple days now. It's been a perfect time to watch Coraline, one of my personal favorite movies. It's supposed to rain again today, and while watching the movie, I could also slap Coraline: Beware the Other Mother down on the table. The new board game based on the movie (which was based on the book) is now available.

From the website:

WizKids is pleased to announce that Coraline: Beware the Other Mother, a new game based on the beloved stop motion animated film from LAIKA, is now available in North American Game Stores!

In this cooperative 1-4 player game, players are Ghost Children who have been captured by the Beldam (the Other Mother) and who now seek to help Coraline free her parents from the Beldam’s clutches. They do this by guiding her through the Other World as she attempts to find the items that will allow her to escape: the Skeleton Key, the Eyes of the Ghost Children, and the Snow Globe. The game has a timer in the form of the Moon Deck. The Moon Deck has 6 Moon Cards, and every time the Moon is advanced, players will reveal and discard the top card of the Moon Deck. If the final Moon Card is ever revealed, the players immediately lose the game.

The Beldam is controlled by the Beldam Story Deck, a separate deck of cards that will challenge Coraline throughout the game. She may be forced to drop an object, discard a card, or advance the moon. If the Beldam Story Deck is empty at the start of the Beldam Phase, the players lose.

If Coraline manages to collect the 5 Object Tokens she needs to escape while in the Living Room, and the Beldam isn’t in the room with her, the players win! Featuring all your favorite characters from the film, from Wybie and Mr. Bobinsky to Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, Coraline: Beware the Other Mother is available now, so pick it up at your Friendly Local Game Store today!
