Wow! This is another one I'm willing to buy (or to backer).
Launched by Criptozoid on Kickstarter Ghostbuster: the Board Game is the first official board game in almost 30 years. As you may guess this is another co-op game with us playing as one of the four Ghostbusters hunting for ghosts.
Lots of miniatures (the 4 ghostbusters, 3 bosses, ghouls and ghosts)
This is what we learn from the campaign infos:
Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre, or ghost? If the answer is "yes," then don't wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals .
Ghostbusters: The Board Game is an episodic adventure game for one to four players, who are charged with busting ghosts and sealing gates to the Spirit World. The game is customizable, cooperative, and highly re-playable. It features unique illustrations and figures based on original artwork and designs by Dan Schoening, the artist of IDW's Ghostbusters comic book series. Each Ghostbuster has a distinct role and unlocks unique abilities by gaining experience. The game offers modes for different levels of players, making it accessible to beginners and challenging to experts. Now is your chance to save the world!
The game features 3 campaigns, each with 4 unique scenarios. Each scenario takes approximately 30 intense minutes to play. Every campaign concludes with an epic battle against an iconic boss character.
The game uses dice to resolve a lot of the action, so it’s never the same game twice (but maybe it'll have some randomness) The three types of dice represent the proton packs and ghost traps, the unpredictable movements of the ghosts, and the chaotic activity of the gates. During each turn, players move, shoot proton streams, deposit trapped ghosts, use unique character abilities, and drive the Ecto-1 to complete objectives.
Each scenario’s map is constructed using double-sided tiles, featuring street and park imagery by the talented Robb Mommaerts.
