Despite the fact that it has only just launched on Kickstarter, the Evil Dead 2 board game is kicking ass and taking names, and looks set to become the next big thing in tabletop gaming.
With 30 days still to go on it, their target of $70,000 has already been smashed as it currently sits at just over $201,000. That’s a little bit mad when you think about it.
But the backing guarantees that we will be seeing it soon, so here’s a little of what to expect from it:
Synopsis: The officially licensed Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience Evil Dead 2 fans have been dying for–featuring at least 8 custom figures with art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.
Gameplay: You’ll play as your favorite Evil Dead 2 characters (and Jake) as you explore the cabin for missing pages of the Ex-Mortis. If you find all of the pages, you can open a portal to banish the Kandarian Demons and win the game. But you will have to face Deadites, demons, Ash’s Freaking Hand!, that tree, and the deadite versions of your fellow players to do it!
