On Tuesday, Cryptozoic Entertainment and Sony Pictures Consumer Products announced the upcoming April 11 launch of Ghostbusters: The Board Game II’s Kickstarter.
Following on the heels of last year’s successful Kickstarter campaign, which captured over $1.5 million and the retail release of Ghostbusters: The Board Game includes Slime Blower Pack Ghostbusters, Ooze entities that can split apart and join back together, allies, new equipment like Ecto Goggles and Portal Destabilizers.
The new board game 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 companies previously revealed that the new game also features an original story by Ghostbusters comics writer Erik Burnham that has the Ghostbusters investigating mood slime that has flooded the city, creating earthquakes and riots in another attempt to bring Vigo and his minions back. In line with the story, the map tiles in the game depict buildings destroyed by earthquakes and fires, as well as collapsed streets that expose sewers infested with slime, tunnels with derailed subway cars, and ghost trains. The impressive new figures are based on designs by Ghostbusters comic book artist Dan Schoening.
