Mantic Games Teases Umbrella Academy: The Board Game
To kick off the year, Mantic Games has teased some of what we can expect in 2022 and that includes a game based on the comic series The Umbrella Academy! The Umbrella Academy: The Board Game was teased in 2019 but it looks like we’re finally going to get it.
Alessio Cavatore and River Horse Games are working with Mantic to design the game. Cavatore designed the rules for Mantic’s Kings of War.
Umbrella Academy: The Board Game is based on the comic series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá and published by Dark Horse Comics which has been adapted into a television series for Netflix.
In the game, you’re tasked with stopping the apocalypse. You’ll need to work together to defeat hazards that threaten to destroy locations across the city. If too many are, it’s game over.
The co-operative game is for 1-5 players and combines cards and miniatures. The game will include detailed plastic minis of iconic characters like Space Boy, Kraken, Rumor, Séance, and Number Five.
Check out Space Boy and Number Five below!
The game will be crowdfunded in early 2022.
