Yippee-Ki-Yay! Die Hard finally swings into board gaming with USAopoly’s latest

USAopoly, a specialist when it comes to licensed board game and puzzle publishing, has teamed with Fox Consumer Products to release Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game.

The one-versus-many tabletop game allows players to take on the role of action hero fan’s favourite, John McClane, or assume the identity of one of Hans Gruber’s thieves who are trying to unlock and rob Nakatomi Plaza’s vault.

“We designed this new game mechanic for Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist to allow fans to play through the same story arcs and character development as in the movie,” said Pat Marino, lead game designer, USAopoly.

“As the game progresses through three acts, the board reveals more of itself, bringing about new challenges and objectives for players while increasing the game’s difficulty and complexity to keep everyone engaged.”

The individual playing John McClane must complete various objectives to save the hostages from Gruber and his clan of thieves. Meanwhile, the thieves must work together to hack the vault’s lock system and stop McClane.

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist features a quad-fold board, action cards with callbacks to Die Hard’s most memorable scenes, characters, and events, and custom-sculpted figures representing McClane, Gruber and the thieves.

This is the first officially licensed tabletop game for the Die Hard franchise and is now available at Amazon and other select retailers for $39.95 MSRP.
