Rear Window Game coming from Funko Games

Published on: 14th March 2022

The new Rear Window Game based on the iconic Alfred Hitchcock film has been created by Prospero Hall, Funko Games’ acclaimed creative studio.

The quintessential nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat Alfred Hitchcock thriller has been transformed into Rear Window Game, and is coming to a tabletop this summer from Funko Games’ acclaimed design studio Prospero Hall.

A board game of deduction and mystery inspired by the “Master of Suspense”, gameplay sees one player assume the role of the director and “Master of Suspense” himself, who must communicate using clues and signs (and without ever uttering a word) to help the other players figure out who the murderer is – or if there was even a murder.

Inspired by the classic 1950s film stylings of Hitchcock, Rear Window Game includes the likeness of Hollywood icons Jimmy Stewart (as L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries) and Grace Kelly (as Lisa Carol Fremont), transporting the players into the fabled apartment and its curious neighbours. Designed for an older audience (recommended age 13+), this is a cooperative game with all the tension, suspense and surprise associated with Hitchcock storytelling.

Players must carefully observe strange clues and ominous patterns in the things going on in the apartments across the way. There are parties, knives, a saw, bickering, laughing, music…and a mysterious trunk.

The game, for 3-5 Players, will be available in summer 2022.
