Evil Dead 2… The Board Game

PromoShotI'm not much of a board game player. I think I own one, a Marvel Universe version of Risk I got as a gift. But, that might change. Space Goat is putting together an official Evil Dead 2 Board Game in conjunction with Studiocanal. It's planned as a tile and miniature survival / horror game. I'm not even sure what all of that means, but I'm willing to give it a shot to play Ash Williams.

Now, like a lot of things, this is going to go through a Kickstarter which is launching soon. There are two version, a standard and a deluxe, to choose from. But come on, you have to go deluxe right?


Featuring at least 8 custom figures and art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the film, the official Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience for Evil Dead 2 fans. 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 deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead.

They say that more figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, a well as retailer pledge levels. plus six fans will also get a chance to get their likeness drawn into either the game or a future Evil Dead 2 comic book.
