Disney Shadowed Kingdom

Disney Shadowed Kingdom is a small-box cooperative game for 2 players. In the game, you choose your favorite Disney character and team up to dispel the Shadow polluting The Kingdom, while you journey to discover lost Magic.

Using simple mechanics, this family game for ages 8+ requires memory, strategy, and a bit of luck…especially as you’re not allowed to communicate with the other player regarding what cards you’re playing! For fans of Disney that don’t mind a slightly darker (though not scary) look at the Magic Kingdom, consider Disney Shadowed Kingdom. It’s only $20 and can be picked up here.

Masters of the Universe: Skeletor 1000-Piece Puzzle

Based on Florian Bertmer’s artwork, this 1000-piece puzzle is perfect for any fan of Masters of the Universe. It pictures Skeletor framed by the swirling mists of Snake Mountain, his sorcerous Havoc Staff in hand.

When finished, this puzzle is 28″ tall, and 20″ wide. Like most of Mondo’s many puzzles, it’s $20. You can find it here.

There is also a companion puzzle of Skeletor’s nemesis He-Man available by the same artist.
