Disney's It's a Small World

This week, Funko Games announced a collaboration with Disney as they're releasing the It's A Small World Board Game. This is based on the iconic Disneyland theme park attraction that's been an everpresent since the early years of the park. Funko Games has taken the classic ride and transformed it into a board game that will have you travelling through the different locations around the world, by using cards that match up with wherever you're headed. They have gone to great lengths to recreate what feels like an appropriate representation of the ride while making something that feels fun and is easy to grasp for children and for adults who are still young at heart.

The game is for 2-6 players and for ages 4+. The game will initially be released at Disneland resorts and Disney Stores and then a general release on July 1st, 2021 for $25.
