Monolith Board Games Launches Batman: Gotham City Chronicles

Monolith has launched their much anticipated Batman: Gotham City Chronicles board game on Kickstarter. The game for 2 to 4 players is exclusive to the crowdfunding site and has blown past the initial goal of $500,000.

$140 is the “Base Game Pledge” which nets you the “Heroes Box,” “Villains Box,” and rulebook. Miniatures included are 7 heroes, 20 allies, 8 civilians, 9 villains, 32 goons, and everything you need to play like tiles, boards, dice, tokesn, scenarios, and more. You also get stretch goals.

For $320 you get the “Base Game Pledge” plus a copy of the “Wayne Manor Expansion,” “Arkham Asylum Expansion,” “Batmobile add-on,” a copy of “Versus,” and one dice pack. All of those items can be purchased on their own.

The “Wayne Manor Expansion” includes 7 heroes, 3 allies, boards, tiles, tokens, and cards.

“Arkham Asylum” features 6 villains, 14 goons, tiles, boards, and more.

The “Versus Mode” features 12 allies, command board, tiles, disks, scenarios and rules.

The “Batmobile add-on” features the Batmobile miniature, tile, tokens, scenarios, and rules.

The game is an improved ruleset of Monolith’s Conan Board Game. A scenario-based miniature board game where 2-4 players control the Dark Knight and his allies in their battle against crime in an asymmetrical and open game system. One player takes on the heroes and the other takes on the villains which helps ease the setup of the game. Each side takes turns, pitting their strategies against each other.

You’re able to play as Batman, Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, Catwoman, and more. They’ll go up against classic characters like the Joker, Riddler, Clayface, Bane, Scarecrow, and more. All of them rendered as miniatures set on textured bases.

All of the content offered on the campaign is exclusive to Kickstarter and will not be available at retail. The campaign ends March 31.

Monolith has uploaded a new banner image on their social networks giving the date of when Batman: Gotham City Chronicles goes live on Kickstarter. The board game will be available February 27 at 3pm EST/9pm GMT and is an exclusive through the crowdfunding site.

The game’s rules will be available in English and French but each time the game receives 2,000 or more pledges from a country or group that speak another language, the game will be translated. For instance in 1,000 people are from Spain and 1,000 are from Mexico, a Spanish translation will be available on the website.
