It’s Kickstart Monday time! This week we dive into paranormal investigations, espionage, and most importantly two great crowdfunding projects.
Hellboy: The Board Game from Mantic Games features the titular character and his associates leading paranormal investigations into the big, bad, and weird. The original game featured the players taking on the role of one of the investigators and going through a narrative that would reveal itself on a mission. As they would progress further there would be villains to be over come, new clues and advancements in the story, and ultimately a big boss fight at the end.
While there are plenty of missions in the box and a number of expansions to take your games further available this project introduces new content, miniatures, cards and stories you can play. It also introduces a whole new dice game that you can play as a quick filler between your games of Hellboy. If you are a fan of the comics or movies, like bashing your way through rooms of creepy baddies, or just need another cooperative game in your collection then you should check out this project.
Agents of SMERSH: Epic Edition from Everything Epic is a game about creating an epic spy thriller in a board game. Playing with 1-4 players, each player takes on the role of a secret agent and must locate Dr. Lobo before it’s too late. Acquire spy gear, skills, gadgets, and allies to help you along the way. If you can make it to the end, then you are sure to face the doctor in what should feel like the final scene in any spy thriller you have seen.
This game has been out for a long time, but this will be a new version with updated artwork and graphic design, updated gameplay, and greater emphasis on the story of the game. If you like big action spy movies with a dastardly villain than this game might be right for you.
