It’s probably the best time ever to be a fan of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead franchise. After years and years of clamoring for an Evil Dead 4 on the big screen, fans got something even better last year when the Ash Vs. The Evil Dead television series debuted. Why just get one movie when you can have potentially years worth of Bruce Campbell kicking ass and taking demonic names instead??
And now there’s potentially yet another groovy new addition to all that gory Deadite goodness, as Space Goat Productions, the company who has been producing the Evil Dead 2 comics, have announced their plans to create an Evil Dead 2 board game. This would be an officially licensed game, made with permission from rights holders Studio Canal. Although the game is already funded on Kickstarter, new backers can still get special cool new bonuses once the game is released.
The Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience that fans of the movie never knew they wanted–the game would feature at least 8 custom figures with art depicting Ash and the other memorable characters, demons and a certain cabin in the woods from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, all while trying to survive demon attacks and creepy lullabies, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.
Space Goat Productions have also revealed that there will not only be a standard edition of the game, but an even cooler deluxe edition that comes in a Ex-Mortis game box, as well as with an exclusive “Combat Ash” miniature and more. To learn all the details of the game, be sure to click on their Kickstarter page, and also be sure to watch the video below:
