As if binge-watching the new season of Stranger Things wasn’t going to cut into our trick-or-treating, now there’s this: Netflix and Hasbro have teamed up for a trio of board games inspired by the hit throwback series coming later this month. Cards can either send a player’s character to the Upside Down, make an opponent draw two, reverse the order of play, summon the Demogorgon, or cause a rift that sends everyone who was Right-Side Up to the Upside Down, and vice versa! To win and escape the Upside Down, get rid of all your Eggo cards before the Demogorgon attacks or be toast!
