Calling all Smurfs fans! The internationally beloved brand is getting its own tabletop gaming experience timed with The Smurfs’ 65th anniversary.
Maestro Media, a leader in tabletop games and community-driven campaigns, has announced a crowdfunding project for the game set to launch on Kickstarter in October. This campaign will allow fans to get involved and provide feedback, ensuring a fun and engaging final product that is loyal to The Smurfs universe. Backers will receive a physical copy of the game next year and it will also be available to purchase at retailers.
Tentatively titled Smurfs’ Hidden Village, the game features Smurfs that are tasked with rebuilding the mushroom village from scratch following the evil sorcerer Gargamel’s latest scheme. Kids will play as Smurfs, working together as a team to collect resources, build inventions, and locate missing Smurfs to help rebuild mushroom houses. Each Smurf has a unique set of skills that players can strategically use to outsmart Gargamel and his cat Azrael.
Designed for kids ages 7 and up, this game takes only 25-35 minutes to complete with 1-5 players, making it perfect for family game night.
More information about the game and the crowdfunding campaign will be available later this year. To stay up to date on the project, visit smurfshiddenvillage.com.
