We’ve only gone and found the greatest ever Goonies-related Christmas gift

This has given us pangs of nostalgia.

Do you know what? You’re welcome.

OK, we know that The Goonies is not a Christmas film, but it may as well be known as ‘the greatest, non-Christmas, Christmas film of all time’ along with Willy Wonka and The (original) Karate Kid.

It’s a classic.

With that in mind, we’ve just come across this majestic game that is now available to buy online.

You could never be bored on Christmas Day with this.

The Goonies adventure card game was crowdfunded after a Kickstarter page was established earlier this year.

Film fans and card game enthusiasts helped raise more than $58,000 (£45,000) to create a game with objectives described as follows by its creators:

‘In THE GOONIES: Adventure Card Game, you play as a ragtag group of kids from the Goon Docks neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon.

‘You must join together on a quest to find the treasure of legendary pirate One-Eyed Willy so that you can save your homes from demolition! 

‘You will need to keep your wits about you and use your unique skills to avoid One-Eyed Willy’s booby traps and also stay one step ahead of the Fratellis, a family of criminals intent on claiming the treasure for themselves.’

Needless to say, the great Sean Astin – who played Mikey in the ’80s classic – was impressed.
