Who you gonna call? The folks over at Cryptozoic, of course.
Following their hugely successful crowdfunding campaign for HEX: Shards of Fate which raised over $2 million, Cryptozoic launched a Kickstarter on February 10th in support of their latest endeavor: Ghostbusters™: The Board Game.
“Ghostbusters™: The Board Game is a game for 1-4 players, ages 15 and up. Players choose one of the four Ghostbusters character figures (Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz) and then select from one of the game’s pre-written scenarios, beginning a game session that lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the chosen scenario(s) and degree of difficulty. Each of the Ghostbusters has unique traits and talents that can assist the entire team, with highly cooperative gameplay. As players gain experience from banishing spirits, the Ghostbusters level up, gaining new abilities that help them take on greater challenges. The team can also hop in the Ecto-1, the Ghostbusters’ converted ambulance, to help them quickly move through the city.”
There are two versions available of the game. The base version includes the following:
• 47 Custom 32-50mm Plastic Mini Figures
• 10 Double-Sided 5.5″ x 5.5″ Game Board Tiles
• 6 Dice (5 D6 & 1 D8)
• 43 Tokens (Streams, Slimes, Gates, XP Trackers)
• 1 PKE Meter
• 4 Player Cards
• 6 Ghost Cards
• 1 Ghostbusters Operations & Field Manual
This will run you about $80 on their Kickstarter. There’s also a deluxe version available that comes in a super ultra awesome black box and comes with a glow in the dark Stay Puft Marshmallow Man for $125.
You have until March 11th to help Cryptozoic reach their $250,000 goal. We’re ready to strap on our proton packs and throw all our money at this Kickstarter!
