Ndemic Creations, the creators of the hit iOS, Android and Windows Phone strategy video game, Plague Inc., launched a Kickstarter this week to raise $35,000 for the board game version. Within a few days, the project has surpassed its initial goal and currently nearly $100,000 thanks to 1,700 backers.
Plague Inc.: The Board Game is a strategic game of infection, evolution and extinction for 2-5 players lasting 60-90 minutes. Players are deadly disease that compete against each other in a battle to be first to infect and wipe out the planet. The tabletop version is very similar to the video game.
