    These "Stranger Things" Throwback Games Will Make All '80s Kids Scream

    There's an official "Stranger Things" Dungeons & Dragons set now and it's about time!

    Attention all Stranger Things fans!!! I'm very excited to tell you that Hasbro Gaming is releasing a new collection of Stranger Things games and they are basically every nostalgia nerd's dream come true.


    These glorious '80s-themed games are being shown for the first time at the International Toy Fair in NYC this week, but this is your exclusive first look, and I don't think I'm going out on a limb here when I say they are pretty friggin' cool.

    First up is a Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set — inspired by Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and Will's favorite game, of course.

    And, YES, it comes with a Demogorgon figure...TWO, in fact!

    This game is perfect for beginners (or even ~experts~ who just love the show) and includes a Stranger Things Adventure book, Rulebook, five Stranger things character sheets (like "Will the Wise!"), six dice, and two Demogorgon figures — one that you can't paint yourself!

    This game will be officially released at Walmart, Target, Amazon, GameStop, and Barnes & Noble on May 1, but you can pre-order it From Walmart or Amazon for $24.99.

    Next is a Trivial Pursuit "Back to the '80s" edition — which is giving me all kinds of Spielberg movie vibes.

    There's even a fun ~twist~ where the board flips and takes you to the Upside Down!

    This edition of Trivial Pursuit features 1500 trivia questions from 6 categories: Movies, TV, Music, Famous People and Events, Trends, Tech and Fun, and (of course) Stranger Things. The ~twist~ is that if you land on one of the Portal Spaces, you have to flip a section of the board over and send all players to the Upside Down where you can lose wedges.

    This game will be officially released at Walmart, Target, Amazon, GameStop, and Barnes & Noble on May 1, but you can pre-order it from Walmart or Amazon for $19.99.

    And finally, a Palace Arcade handheld electronic game — a mini version of your childhood fav.

    This one will be available exclusively at Target on May 1 for $29.99.
