A few weeks ago, we posted that Space Goat Productions was creating a board game based on Sam Raimi’s 1987 horror comedy Evil Dead 2. Well, it just opened up for backing on Kickstarter, so get on in there if you want to secure your own copy!
Evil Dead 2: The Board Game works like this: “[The game] is a tile and miniature based survival horror game for 2-6 Players based on the classic movie. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.”
The first official press release offers this information:
The campaign offers a standard and deluxe edition for donors to select from. The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead. More figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, a well as retailer pledge levels. Six lucky fans will also get a chance to get their likeness drawn into either the game or a future Evil Dead 2 comic book.
As much as I love to play board games, I don’t get the opportunity all that often. That being said, this looks like it’ll be right up my alley! It’s clear that a lot of love and care went into creating this game, especially considering the Space Goat is the team behind the Evil Dead 2 comics from the past few years. The design is perfect because every playthrough will be a unique experience, which makes for tons of groovy times!
