You might be in the majority of people who are thinking ‘there was a first Ghostbusters board game?’, but that shouldn’t make you any less excited for the second one. Launching today on Kickstarter, this second game very logically follows on the Ghostbusters II story line in which mood slime has invaded New York City and it’s up to the fab four of Stanz, Spengler, Zedmore and Venkman (everyone’s favorite, right?) to come in and save the day. Fans are obviously very excited as the team at Cryptozoic hit their $250,000 goal within two hours. Now, it’s on to the stretch goals!
This new campaign is crafted with fans in mind and includes the following contents in the base game:
- 54 Miniatures including 4 Courtroom Ghostbusters, 4 Slime Blower Ghostbusters, The Scoleri Brothers, and Vigo the Carpathian plus 12 double-sided map tiles, custom dice and tokens; some of which can be used for advanced gameplay variants.
- Two expansions starring Louis Tully and Slimer as playable characters are also available for backers starting today.
- Features an original story by IDW Comics’ Ghostbusters writer Erik Burnham in which Vigo and his minions return to the city, causing rioting and earthquakes to break out all over The Big Apple! Comic book artist Dan Schoening also returns with his signature Ghostbusters style.
- Ghostbusters: The Board Game II’s cooperative gameplay and modular design allow for highly customizable scenarios and nearly endless re-playability. This stand-alone expansion lets players hop in the Ecto-1a for a quick half hour session, or strap on their Proton Packs for a full-fledged ghostbusting campaign, making it the perfect game for board game veterans and beginners alike.
For more information be sure to hit up the game over on Kickstarter… and support it if you like what you see!
