Madame Leota’s séance circle just got a lot more immersive: Funko has a new “Haunted Mansion” board game that will delight fans of the 2003 Disney horror comedy film that starred Eddie Murphy. The game, entitled The Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits Board Game, will be released on September 30, but the product is available to pre-order now on Amazon for $25. Based on the world brought to life (or, uh, death) in the film based on the Disneyland theme park attraction of the same name, Call of the Spirits Board Game is the ideal purchase ahead of the spooky season. 

With two to four players, Disney fans can explore all the mysterious rooms of the ghost-infested manor—like the ballroom, attic, graveyard, and séance room—in search of spirits. Beware of the hitchhiking ghosts, though, who have a penchant for following you home and enacting impending doom. Simply rotate the endless hallway around Madame Leota’s séance room to get around, and socialize with the happy haunts by collecting matching sets of ghost cards. Dark spirits from the grave just might come forth.

Directed by Rob Minkoff, “The Haunted Mansion” follows a workaholic real estate agent named Jim Evers (Murphy) who takes his family on vacation after his wife Sara (Marsha Thomason) laments that he’s been neglecting their children, Michael (Marc John Jefferies) and Megan (Aree Davis). When the family stops at a mansion that Jim has been tasked to sell, they soon discover that it’s haunted by former residents and servants who need to break a curse. The film is currently available to stream on Disney+ for those keen on a quarantined “Haunted Mansion” Halloween—perhaps one spent with the Call of the Spirits Board Game and a stream of the movie.

With Funko’s new board game and the news that a new “Haunted Mansion” film is in the works at Disney, it’s a good time to be a “Haunted Mansion” fan.
