Big Trouble In Little China: The Board Game

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019

With there being a District 9 board game currently up for funding on Kickstarter, I was a bit curious to know what other properties got the niche board game treatment. And in what is both surprising but at the same time totally expected, the John Carpenter cult classic film (and one of my absolute favorite films of all time) Big Trouble in Little China is one of those properties. Created by board game company Everything Epic, the game has up to 4 players take on the role of heroes like Egg Shen, Wang Chi, and Jack Burton (of course) as they try to stop Lo Pan’s resurrection. It’s not a new game, as it was released last year, but Everything Epic did announce an expansion this year, Legacy of Lo Pan, which increases the player count to 6, and comes with a free Six Demon Bag to store dice.

If you want to pick up the game for yourself, here’s a (non-affiliate) Amazon link: www.amazon.com/Big-Trouble-Little-China-Game/dp/B07F5LKJKP

District 9: The Boardgame – Now On Kickstarter

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

Crowdfunding has become commonplace enough that even established companies are using it to greenlight what might be considered niche products. Such is the case with WETA Workshop and Trishula Entertainment’s Kickstarter campaign for a District 9 boardgame. Designed for 2-4 players, District 9: The Boardgame takes place during the film’s 3-day period as players pick one of 4 factions to salvage Prawn technology and take control of the district.

Atomic Zeal

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

Atomic Zeal is a strategy board game set in the irradiated wastes of post nuclear war 80s United Kingdom. Play as one of four unique factions each with a different play style, units and abilities. Combined with an unpredictable event deck, nuclear warheads and a variety of additional tactical supplies no two games will be the same. Battle for dominance of the map, capturing sectors for resources or to maintain a tactical advantage over your rivals.

Sounds super interesting. There’s not too much information out as of yet, however expect a follow up on Atomic Zeal when the Kickstarter goes live later this year.
