Jim Henson's Labyrinth, the Board Game 

The year 1986 gave us what have become some of the best loved, most-often quoted movies. In no particular order, it was the year of Aliens, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Top Gun, Platoon, The Fly, Crocodile Dundee, Short Circuit, Sid and Nancy, Hoosiers and the groundbreaking Labyrinth. The fantasy film, directed by the late genius Jim Henson, is about a teenage girl (Jennifer Connelly) who must navigate a labyrinth—and a slew of Henson creations—to rescue her baby brother from his kidnapper, Jareth the Goblin King, played by another late genius, David Bowie.

Finding the right holiday gifts can seem like a high-stakes quest, but if you have someone on your list who loves that classic film, we found something that will make you feel like you completed the maze of shopping without having to face the Minotaur: Jim Henson's Labyrinth the Board Game (River Horse). It comes with collectible figurines, a "lavishly illustrated" game board, a goblin clock and myriad other items necessary to save Toby from being turned into a goblin babe in 13 hours. As the Goblin King says, "It's only forever, not long at all."
