About two weeks ago it was announced that a second Ghostbusters board game would be coming to Kickstarter. However, there weren’t many details about that. Now they have announced that it will be showing up on April 11, and given some information about the new gameplay.
Cryptozoic Entertainment (cryptozoic.com), leading creator of board games and collectible cards, and Sony Pictures Consumer Products are proud to announce the upcoming April 11 launch of the Kickstarter campaign forGhostbusters: The Board Game II.This new crowdfunding campaign follows the successful Ghostbusters: The Board Game 2015 Kickstarter campaign and retail release. The new board game is crafted with fans in mind, and allows players to:
- Switch between Proton and Slime Blower Packs with new custom figures and double-sided Character Cards.
- Battle challenging new Plazm enemies that combine into stronger versions to attack and split up in defense. Immune to Proton Streams, these phantoms can only be taken down by Ghostbusters wielding Slime Blower packs.
- Use new Ghosts to bring new Slime tokens that can inhibit the Ghostbusters’ sight, movement, maneuvers and combat rolls.
- Recover stolen experimental Ghostbusting equipment and level the playing field with new weapon, trap, utility and tome cards to survive challenging Event Cards and reap the rewards before things go from worse to apocalyptic.
The game’s tutorial scenario will be on display and open for play at WonderCon, March 25-27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Booth #1862.
If you are at WonderCon this weekend, you can get an early look. I can imagine that this campaign will be at least as popular as the last one.
