EVIL DEAD 2 BOARD GAME COMING SOON
Get out your boomsticks as game night is about to get a whole lot groovier as Space Goat Play (a division of Space Goat Productions) has announced The Official Evil Dead 2 Board Game. The tile and miniature-based survival-horror game will be produced in conjunction with Studiocanal and is launching on Kickstarter on July 7th.
“Kickstarter is a fantastic tool not just to fund cool projects but to make fans aware that those projects exist so they can participate in the creation process,” Space Goat President Shon Bury said. “We’ve built a reputation with the Evil Dead books of really being able to please core Evil Dead fans. We’re going to do the same thing with the official board game.”

Kickstarter rewards will include the standard and deluxe editions of the game. It will feature at least 8 custom figures and art showcasing the iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the film. The game is meant for 2-6 players who 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.
“Evil Dead is such a great world to work in. Making a brutal survival horror game filled with jokes and exciting gameplay just came naturally,” Evil Dead 2 Board Game Designer Taylor Smith said. “It’s a cooperative game with a twist: Players can turn evil and go after their former allies, who then have to decide to save their Deadite friends or put them down for good and carry on with the mission.”

The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead. More figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, a well as retailer pledge levels. Six lucky fans will also get a chance to get their likeness drawn into either the game or a future Evil Dead 2 comic book. The Kickstarter campaign will run 30 days.
