Begin a big fan of table top games and running a group of Ghostbusters out of Long Island I was really excited to sit down with Mataio Wilson from Cryptozoic and get an up close look at Ghostbusters: The Board Game.
Firstly I have to say the design was really well thought out. Having different scenarios to start with and a tile board the can be rearranged based on the scenario you are playing lends the game to lots of replay ability especially with any expansions that may come up. The use of ghosts and the fact the they were able to use anything from Ghostbusters, they took a little from each franchise and gave it a home in the game. So fans of Ghostbusters should really enjoy the fan service that is in this game.
The manual dialogue was written by Erik Burnham and art from fan favorite artist Dan Schoening. The pieces are really well designed and when they made staypuft he is a solid piece so that it has weight to it. With the cards being well written and described as well as the scenario makes the game very accessable and easy to play even if you aren't a hardcore table top gamer.
Ghostbusters: The Board Game is looking to have a November release so check out Cryptozoic.com for more information and when the full release date will be.
