Hellboy Heads to Mexico in the Hellboy: The Board Game Expansion

Hellboy in Mexico

Mantic Games has announced a new limited-edition expansion for Hellboy: The Board Game is in stores now. Working with visionary creator Mike Mignola and Dark Horse Comics, Mantic has created Hellboy in Mexico featuring new heroes, new missions and new terrifying villains.

Previously only available as an optional extra in the Kickstarter campaign, this limited-edition expansion tells the story of Hellboy’s lost period in Mexico, when he became a Mexican wrestler, fought vampires alongside three luchador brothers and faced off against the horrifying Camazotz – a giant wrestling vampire bat!

Available direct from Mantic Games or from gaming stores around the world, Hellboy in Mexico is a limited-edition, one-print expansion that will not be available again once it has sold out.

Hellboy: The Board Game is a cooperative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic B.R.P.D. members – Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and Johann Kraus – before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artifacts and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin! After launching in April 2019, the game is now available in multiple languages (French, Italian, Brazilian and Russian) and is on its third reprint after selling out worldwide.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Mantic Games Delivers a Holiday Hellboy

Mantic Games has announced a special, limited edition miniature to accompany its upcoming Hellboy: The Board Game. Working once again with Dark Horse Comics and creator Mike Mignola, Holiday Hellboy is a handmade, high quality resin gaming piece based around an iconic piece of festive artwork drawn by Mike Mignola.

This amazing celebratory piece will only be available to order now until the end of December from participating Mantic stockists and direct from Mantic Games. After being designed by a digital sculptor, each Holiday Hellboy will be painstakingly handcrafted by the resin team at Mantic HQ in Nottingham, UK.

Measuring approximately 7cm tall, Holiday Hellboy comes unpainted and requires assembly, but will most definitely make a fantastic festive-themed gift for any Hellboy fan. The set also comes with an exclusive B.P.R.D. Agent card for use in Hellboy: The Board Game.

Due for release in 2019, Hellboy: The Board Game is a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic B.R.P.D. members – Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and Johann Kraus – before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artifacts and battling one of Hellboy’s most notorious foes, Rasputin!

Maple Games Announces a Licensed Board Game Based on Mind MGMT

Maple Games has announced that they are making a game based on the comic series MIND MGMT created by Matt Kindt and published by Dark Horse. The game will be designed by Sen-Foong Lim and Jay Cormier.

The game has been in the designing phase for some time and while details are limited, this is one that’s really intriguing due to the source material.

MIND MGMT began being published in 2012 and is about a true crime writer named Meru who begins a search about a mysterious flight and discovers a secret government agency of spies, espionage, and psychic abilities. The comic was also optioned as a movie by 20th Century Fox in December of 2012 with Ridley Scott and David J. Kelly beginning pre-production in January 2013 and a television adaptation was announced in 2017.

We now have a look at the first figure, the big man himself, HELLBOY!

The Goon and Fear Agent Come to RPGs

Pinnacle Entertainment Group has launched two Kickstarters running simultaneously for the pulp scifi setting Fear Agent and “zombie Noir” The Goon comics. Both were funded in less than 90 minutes and have already passed numerous stretch goals!

The Goon RPG for Savage Worlds

Multiple Eisner-award winning comic The Goon pulls no punches when Goon starts swingin’—usually at the chug-heads, changelings, and snake-riddled rival gangs what get in his way. Now your strangers, weirdos, and ne’er do wells can join his crew, make Lonely Street a bit less zombified, and even save the Town in the dramatic Plot Point Campaign “From Hell’s Heart We Bite at Thee!”

The Goon was created by Eric Powell and published by Dark Horse Comics.

Fear Agent RPG for Savage Worlds

The Earth is decimated in an alien invasion—then the “backwards” survivors are invited to join the United Systems as a sort of half-hearted apology. Just like the star of the comics, the “Last Fear Agent” Heath Huston, your heroes are stuck cleaning up the mess in a planet-hopping, time-traveling, conundrum-unravelling journey against the strangest and weirdest aliens the Deep has to offer. And all with a few twists worthy of this phenomenal series!

Fear Agent was created by Rick Remender, Tony Moore, and Jerome Opeña, and published by Dark Horse Comics.

The Goon RPG and the Fear Agent RPG for Savage Worlds Kickstarters each offer a core book, GM Screen with adventure, Bennies, dice, and amazing miniatures sculpted by Bronze Age Miniatures. A copy of the Savage Worlds core rules is required to play ($10 at www.peginc.com).

If you are new to Savage Worlds, Pinnacle announced an Un-Stretch Goal: PDFs for Deadlands, Rippers Resurrected, The Last Parsec, and East Texas University. Digital or higher level backers on either Goon RPG or Fear Agent RPG Kickstarter get these PDFs for FREE after the Kickstarter. That’s a terrific way to get a feel for the variety of genres Savage Worlds can handle.
