I'm guessing I just have to say, "Up, Up..." and many of you finished out the rest of that without even realizing it. If you're like me, growing up with an original Nintendo system, chances are good you played Contra (or, more appropriately, "died a lot in Contra" if you were just like me). Well, soon, all the giant-guns, lotta bullets action will be coming to your tabletops. Blacklist Games has announced that they're taking pre-orders for Contra: The Board Game.
From the announcement:
The Red Falcon Army has reemerged, and now it’s time to return to the fray and bring them down all over again. You have been selected from among the most qualified Contra commandos, and now the fate of the world lies in your hands. Your mission? Infiltrate, eliminate, and survive.
Blacklist Games, in conjunction with Kess Co., is thrilled to announce Contra: The Board Game, a cooperative game of run-and-gun action for 1–4 players set in the world of Konami’s iconic Contra video game series. Designed by Adam and Brady Sadler (Street Masters, Heroes of Terrinoth), Contra: The Board Game casts players as elite Contra commandos tasked with thwarting the Red Falcon Army’s plans of world domination!
