Hellboy


There's a lot of weird stuff out there. Strange, occult magic; evil, forgotten gods; hulking monsters. Best to have someone keep us safe. That's where the B.P.R.D. comes in. If you're looking to keep humanity safe, you'll want to check out The Wild Hunt, a new expansion for the Hellboy board game from Mantic that gives you three new case files to go on, as well as a new version of the big red guy himself to play as.

"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.

There's a new Hellboy movie in theaters. And there can soon be a new Hellboy board game on your tabletops. Mantic is taking pre-orders for their Hellboy board game. And it's not just the retail version. They've got a few, limited edition versions with some of the Kickstarter goodies in there as well that you can get. So, even if you missed out back then, there's a last chance to get in on it now.

I don't know if I'd say that Hellboy was "a right jolly old elf," but I also wouldn't go up to his face and tell him that. If he wants to play Santa, he can play Santa. And you can do, if you order the limited edition Holiday Hellboy miniature for the Hellboy game from Mantic. You can get your name put down on the "Nice" list now.

Mantic is working on bringing Hellboy and all his BPRD friends to your tabletop. But games don't just spring up out of nowhere. There's a lot of work that goes into their design and development. Mantic is working on pulling back the curtain on this process, by talking with James M. Hewitt, and gets into how the game changed once his skilled hands got to it.
The BPRD, along with their most iconic asset, Hellboy, will be making their way to your tabletop later this year. Mantic has announced that they've entered into a partnership agreement with Dark Horse Comics. As such, the big red guy, Abe Sapien, and more will soon be under your control. The Hellboy board game will be a cooperative affair as you and fellow paranormal defenders face off against some of the most iconic villains from the series. You can expect the game to be on Kickstarter this April.
