WizKids Announces Coraline: Beware the Other Mother Card Game

WizKids is creating a card game based on the Coraline movie (one of my personal favorites, mind you), which is, of course, based on the Neil Gaiman book. It's called Coraline: Beware the Other Mother. In the game, players take on the role of the ghost children, captured by the Baldam, who are looking to free Coraline by finding various objects around the spooky house and avoiding all the other strange people living there. The game is set for a December release.

About the game:

WizKids will release Coraline: Beware the Other Mother, a cooperative card game, into retail stores in December.


In Coraline: Beware the Other Mother, players become the Ghost Children who were taken prisoner by the Beldam (the Other Mother). They will try to free Coraline and her parents by acquiring various objects like the Skeleton Key and Snow Globe. It is a cooperative game so either all players win the game by freeing Coraline, or they can lose the game by allowing Bedlam to thwart their plans.

The game box comes with eight stand-up character tokens, eight plastic character token stands, 30 Coraline Story cards, 30 Beldam Story cards, one Coraline’s Satchel card, six Large Room cards, one room map, eight object tokens, four button tokens, and six Moon cards.

Coraline: Beware the Other Mother is for one to four players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 30 minutes. It will retail for $19.99.
