Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters! You know the iconic movie and song, now take your love of Ghostbusters to the next level with an all new tabletop game! Ghostbusters: The Board Game, from Cryptozoic Entertainment is bringing the world’s most highly respected group of paranormal investigators/exterminators to your home in a new way. The creative team working on the game will consist of Matt Hyra (Lead Game Design & Acquisitions), Mataio Wilson (Associate Game Designer) and Adam Sblendorio (Creative Director) along with additional developers and support from skilled play testers and the passionate family of Ghostbusters fans.
The game is for 1-4 players with a recommended age group of 15 and up. Players choose one of the four Ghostbusters character figures (Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz) and then select from one of the game’s pre-written scenarios, beginning a game session that lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on what scenarios you choose and the degree of difficulty. The game will come with plastic figures of the main characters as well as Slimer, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and more! The designs will be based off of IDW’s Ghostbusters comic book illustrated by Dan Schoening.
The Kickstarter has begun and met its goals already, so you should definitely check that out to see all of the cool exclusive stuff you can get from backing the game. One thing that caught my eye in particular were the glow in the dark dice as part of the “Mass Hysteria Pledge.” The game is set to ship to backers starting in October 2015. Here’s a photo of what’s to come with this awesome new game.
