Board Game: Funkoverse Strategy Game
• At the 2020 London Toy Fair, Funko Games revealed the next four titles for its Funkoverse Strategy Games, two of which are standalone games featuring characters from Jurassic Park — a two-player-only game featuring Dr. Ian Malcolm and a T. Rex, and a 2-4 player game featuring Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Ray Arnold, and a Velociraptor — one of which is a two-player-only game that features Dorothy and Sophia to complete the Golden Girls quartet, and one of which is an expansion for any standalone title in the line that features the character Aggretsuko from the animated series of the same name.

I've seen no release dates for these items, but I'll be meeting with the Funko Games team at NY Toy Fair in late February for an update on what's coming when.

Board Game: WWE: Headlock, Paper, Scissors
• In a Dec. 2019 post, I highlighted the WWE Dice Masters: Campaign Box and related Team Packs coming out from WizKids in early 2019 (previously Jan. 2020, now scheduled for release on Feb. 5).

Turns out that WizKids has another WWE item on its schedule: WWE: Headlock, Paper, Scissors, a design by Josh Cappel, Jay Cormier, and Sen-Foong Lim that uses the same game system as in their 2016 release Rock Paper Wizard. Here's an overview of this May 2020 release:
Quote:
WWE: Headlock, Paper, Scissors is a game of striking, showboating, and making hand signals! Players select their favorite superstar from the twelve included in the game — e.g., Roman Reigns, Kofi Kingston, Becky Lynch, and Asuka — then work to gain the most popularity and reach the briefcase at the top of a 3D ladder while making sure their opponents don't get there first.

Each round, players select a shared technique or their superstar's signature technique, then simultaneously chant "Money!" "In The!" "Bank!" before revealing their technique and their target. Comeback cards and the Underdog token mean that you're never more than a few well-chosen techniques away from the lead!
