The Evil Dead 2 The Board Game Has Kicked Off on Kickstarter and Benefits Original Burned Backers

Evil Dead 2 The Board Game

Jasco Games and Lynnvander Studios have launched The Evil Dead 2 the Board Game on Kickstarter. The “resurrection” brings back the game which had previously launched on Kickstarter under a different publisher but was never fulfilled to backers.

The “heartthrob” campaign means if it successfully funds, all previous backers from the first campaign will get a free copy of this Evil Dead 2 The Board Game.

Evil Dead 2 The Board Game is a wild romp through the cult classic film. Players will fend off Deadites, search the cabin for items and Necronomicon pages, and attempt to close the portal before evil is unleashed upon the world. But Beware! You can’t trust everyone, and at a moment’s notice, you might find that your allies are working for evil!

The campaign ends on September 13 with the only pledge featuring the game at $59 plus shipping and it will retail for $80 when it comes to stores.

Gen Con 2019: WizKids Partners with Sweet Games for Seeders from Series: Exodus

Seeders from Series: Exodus

WizKids is partnering with Sweet Games to publish their hit game Seeders from Sereis: Exodus in English for the first time. It will be released in spring 2020.

When an unknown force threatens to render their home uninhabitable, the Seeders must build arks—giant colony ships–to ensure their survival. Players work to create the most promising design to be chosen for production. Each turn players draft cards into their hands as cards are laid out on the board. Players strategically place negotiator chips between the cards they want, using their alignment and position to determine who has the most influence over a desired card. Once all negotiators and tokens are placed, influence is calculated and the winners of each card is determined.

Once obtained, cards can be played for points, adding value to your ark, or discarded for resources. Each card represents a different component of the ark – locations, items, personnel – and players will find unique synergies between cards as well as their player color’s unique power. Asymmetry and complex interactions add layers of strategy that lead to a unique experience each time you play.

Featuring immersive sci-fi art and high-quality production materials, Seeders from Sereis: Exodus tells a deep, engrossing story, while challenging players with difficult decisions and unique mechanics. This is the first game set in the visionary Seeders from Sereis universe, created by Serge Macasdar and Charbel Fourel. Through a series of games and other media, it will continue the story of the Seeders, as they escape their dying civilization, and search for a new destiny among the stars.

Visit Sweet Games at Gen Con at booth 2953 in Entrepreneur’s Avenue to check out Seeders from Sereis: Exodus for yourself!
