‘Die Hard’ Is Being Turned Into A Board Game

Just when we thought board games couldn’t get more creative, there is now an official Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game. That’s right, John McClane is back in board game form to take on the bad guys and win back the Los Angeles skyscraper he has been sneaking around and craftily defending.

Classic Film

1988’s Christmas thriller, Die Hard, has captivated fans for years as the story of John McClane saving his wife and a hotel full of guests has demonstrated some of Bruce Willis’ best movie qualities.

Not only did this film lead to a string of sequels, but the first installment brought home over $140 million worldwide. Not too shabby!

Game Hard

The announced Die Hard game is said to last roughly 60-90 minutes of playing time. Think you can beat the terrorists and secure the tower in that time? Or will you play as the bad guys and try your best to take down McClane. Just don’t let him get the machine gun!

According to USAopoly, the company that is creating the game, they are doing their best to incorporate the finer details as well as the major plot points. The objective will be to evacuate the tower, which equates to saving hostages for McClane’s character. Conversely, for the villain, it’s about committing a successful robbery. The company putting the game together is dedicated to making it a true Die Hard experience by incorporating signature characters and great tidbits of the movie’s lasting lore.

Never Forget

It’s been several years since the first (and arguably best) Die Hard film hit the big screens. Nevertheless, for big fans, it is always pleasant and welcomed to see the franchises we love manifest in yet another aspect of our life.

Bruce Willis has gone on to have a great deal of success since the ’88 classic. He has appeared in renowned director Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Planet Terror, the series including Unbreakable and its recent addition Glass and many other films. Nevertheless, we will always fondly remember the excitement of that first Die Hard flick.
