There’s a lot of strange stuff going on in the world that people just barely have any clue about. Weird monsters, strange gods, nefarious plots and plans of all types. When regular humans aren’t quite enough to fight back against these menaces, it’s time to send in the BPRD, and its most famous employee: Hellboy.
That’s what you’ll be doing in Hellboy: The Board Game, a new cooperative miniatures board game coming from Mantic Games. It’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the Kickstarter:
Inspired by the legendary tales of horror, myth and folklore by Mike Mignola, Hellboy: The Board Game is a fully cooperative experience for 1 to 4 players. You become a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (BPRD), ready to investigate occult threats that threaten our very existence. You will explore gothic locations, hunt down clues, discover artefacts, fight horrific creatures and face off against terrifying bosses.
Designed by James M. Hewitt – the brains behind the likes of DreadBall, Blood Bowl 2016, Necromunda: Underhive, and Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower – Hellboy: The Board Game features incredibly detailed, pre-assembled PVC plastic miniatures that capture the unique look and feel of Mike Mignola’s visionary work.
The campaign’s doing well, being already around 5x funded with still 29 days left to go.
