Ghostbusters: The Board Game Gets a Sequel
Cyrptozoic Entertainment and Sony have announced that Ghostbusters: The Board Game will be getting a sequel appropriately titled, Ghostbusters: The Board Game II. This new game will launch via a Kickstarter campaign in April.
The second game in the series ups the ante with lots of new game elements, including Slime Blower Pack Ghostbusters, Ooze entities that can split apart and join back together, allies, new equipment like Ecto Goggles and Portal Destabilizers, and much more!
The game features an original story by Ghostbusters comics writer Erik Burnham that has the Ghostbusters investigating mood slime that has flooded the city, creating earthquakes and riots in another attempt to bring Vigo and his minions back. In line with the story, the map tiles in the game depict buildings destroyed by earthquakes and fires, as well as collapsed streets that expose sewers infested with slime, tunnels with derailed subway cars, and ghost trains. The impressive new figures are based on designs by Ghostbusters comic book artist Dan Schoening.
The first Ghostbusters: The Board Game Kickstarter launched February 2015 and went on to raise over $1.5 million from 8,396 backers.
