IT: Monopoly & IT: Clue coming this year

It was just earlier today that we passed along the badass news that IT: CHAPTER TWO star Jessica Chastain says that the new movie will feature more blood than any other horror movie ever in a single scene. And if that wasn't cool enough, now we have word that the original film will be getting two board game adaptations later this year. The first will be an IT-inspired version of Monopoly, and the other - and far more must-own - version will be a take on the classic murder-mystery game CLUE. This is not a joke. You can see pics of the two versions above and below. 

Here's the official rundown:

IT Takes Many Forms. Attempt to Contain the Evil with Forthcoming IT Games from The OP
An ancient evil lurking under the town of Derry, Maine rises from its slumber every 27 years to terrorize the town’s children, and Pennywise has yet again to emerge… this time, in eerily familiar forms that will take over your future game nights. 

Surfacing soon to instill fear into your contented dice-rolling, location scouting rounds are thrilling titles that will guarantee “you’ll float too.” The OP is excited to announce our scariest games yet, created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and centered around none other than the child-devouring clown figure himself. Join The Loser’s Club on their latest missions to fight back against Pennywise in CLUE, MONOPOLY, and the first-ever signature game based on the horror franchise, IT: Evil Below.

Based on the hit 2017 Warner Bros. Pictures’ film, CLUE takes the classic mystery game even further into shrouded chaos as Bill Denbrough and his friends attempt to determine Pennywise’s Plan. Travel between The House on Neibolt Street, the Synagogue, Derry Public Library, and more to identify various items used to lure the town’s youth, while avoiding Red Balloons that will end the operation before the menacing killer’s Plan can be uncovered. CLUE: IT will be available this March.

Also inspired by the highly-acclaimed film, MONOPOLY: IT makes buying, selling, and trading places in and around Derry, Maine the key to winning this uncanny twist of “the Landlord’s Game.” Using tokens of iconic items such as an Inhaler, Paper Boat, and Bicycle, players can draw Encounters and Phenomena cards as they build Suburban Houses and Apartment Buildings on locations like Pennywise’s Cistern and the Derry Sewers. MONOPOLY: IT will be available later this year.

Keep your eyes peeled for danger around every corner as these and other collectibles become available through 2020, along with the theatrical release of It: Chapter Two, coming this September! 

On top of CLUE: IT and MONOPOLY: IT, there is also a new game called IT: EVIL BELOW in the works. This game will be a cooperative dice and card game that "challenges all members of The Loser’s Club to work together to drive Pennywise back into hibernation." More information about IT: Evil Below will be announced later this year. Will you be snagging a copy of one or both or all three of these killer new games? Let us know below!

Until then, here's the official IT: CHAPTER TWO synopsis via Warner Bros. and New Line:
