"Fight fire with fire." That's sort of the unofficial tagline of the BPRD. If there's weird, metaphysical and supernatural stuff going down, why not have weird, metaphysical and supernatural stuff fight it? That's what you'll be doing in Hellboy: the Board Game. It's available now from Mantic.
From the announcement:
Mantic Games, in partnership with Dark Horse Comics, is pleased to announce that Hellboy: The Board Game is available now in stores worldwide. After a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, that raised more than $2 million, the retail edition gives a whole new audience the opportunity to recreate the action-packed adventures of Hellboy.
Inspired by Mike Mignola’s visionary Hellboy universe, the game is a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of Hellboy’s most notorious foes. Up to four people take control of iconic B.P.R.D. members – Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and Johann Kraus - before exploring gothic locations, uncovering ancient artifacts and battling against the minions of chaos.
Featuring stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures, Mantic Games has worked closely with Mike Mignola to ensure the gaming pieces accurately capture the look and feel of the source material. What’s more, games designers James M. Hewitt and Sophie Williams from Needy Cat Games have created a tabletop experience that blends tense exploration with spectacular combat.
“Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”
