Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist brings the thrills, chills, and spills of everyone's favorite Christmas movie to your tabletop.

From the article:

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game is the first officially licensed tabletop game based on the 1988 classic, thanks to a partnership between Usaopoly and Fox Consumer Products. As featured on Nerdist, Mental Floss, Polygon, and more, the one-vs-many strategy game that lets players jump into the story of the first Die Hard film to create their own ending has continued to excite fans since its suspenseful Gen Con activations, giving hobby gamers, movie buffs, and collectors even more reason to bust out their favorite snarky film quotes. Designers Pat Marino and Sean “Fletch” Fletcher detail how they brought all of the best Die Hard elements to the table. Welcome to the party, pals.
