Toy News: Funko Games to release Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window based Board Game

Later in the summer, Funko games are going to be releasing a brand new board game based on the Alfred Hitchcock thriller, Rear Window. I thought at first that it was going to be a Cluedo-style game but it sounds a lot more original than this. One player will take on the role of “the Director”, communicating clues (without speaking), to the other players, so that they may uncover the identity of the murderer… Or was there even a murder?

It’s a cooperative game, something which there isn’t enough of on the board game market.

Funko themselves describe the game as follows:

Experience Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Rear Window in this game of deduction and suspense. Carefully observe strange clues and ominous patterns in the things going on in the apartments across the way. There are parties, knives, a saw, bickering, laughing, music…and a mysterious trunk. Do you detect a murder? Or is the secret, private world of the neighbors planting frightening ideas in your mind?

It is going to be suitable for players aged 13+ with 3 to 5 players at any time and a recommended retail price of £29.99.
