Back to the Future Day Board Games
It’s “Back to the Future Day” today. That is the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown visit in “Back to the Future II”. For fans of the “Back to the Future” films today is a pretty big deal and the team at Gameapalooza love the “Back to the Future” franchise.
To celebrate we thought we’d take a quick look at a few “Back to the Future” tabletop games you can purchase right now, and a few things you can purchase via import or…. in the future!
Import if you can
First up comes the “Back to the Future: The Card Game” by Gameapalooza favorites “Looney Labs”. The annoying thing about this one is, you can’t import it from them, because due to licensing issues they can’t sell it in Australia (or at least when we bought it last year).
Of course we live in the future, so there’s ways around that should you desperately want it, just look elsewhere or do what we did and get a US mate to post it over to you.
If you like Monopoly…
Less difficult to get is the readily available “Back to the Future Monopoly”. So if you want to travel from back to 1985, to 1955, to 1885, in the comfort of your own home, “Back to the Future Monopoly” lets you time-hop through the world of the BTTF trilogy! That is assuming you actually like Monopoly, we think the coolest thing about this is the tokens, including the DeLorean, Einstein the dog, the cowboy hat, the futuristic sneaker, the hoverboard, and the famous Hill Valley clock! Still not enough for us to want it, but maybe you don’t mind.
Tempted to get this based on the Flux Capacitor Dice Shaker.
Yeah, you don’t even like “Yahtzee” and you’re eyeing this one aren’t you and you’re thinking yes “Back to the Future Yahtzee” looks damn amazing because Flux Capacitor Dice Shaker! You can get this on Amazon and we’ve even seen it on Aussie store shelves, so you shouldn’t have a problem if you want it.
IDW are prepping their upcoming game âBack to the Future: An Adventure Through Timeâ, but alas it wonât be releasing until May, 2016. If you want to learn more about that, you can check our earlier coverage here.

Lastly, unless this gets a proper release, it’s gonig to be eBay for this one, the Time Machine for “Colt Express” is basically the DeLorean. It was released as a promo at Essen this year. You can see our coverage here.
Happy Back to the Future Day gamers!
