Ghostbusters


Who you gonna call?
Well, I'm kinda hungry, so I was thinking about calling for a pizza. But if it's rivers of pink slime that causes people to go crazy, or paintings taking over people, you might just want to call the Ghostbusters. And you'll be able to soon, as Cryptozoic has announced that they are coming out with Ghostbusters: the Board Game II.
If you're about my age, a good deal of your knowledge of the Ghostbusters didn't necessarily come from the movies or comics. No, it came from the cartoon show. I know I watched the hell out of it. Well, now The Real Ghostbusters are making an appearance in the Ghostbusters board game from Cryptozoic as an add-on to their Kickstarter campaign.
Who you gonna call?
... The pizza guy. I'm hungry.
I know I've started pretty much every Ghostbusters news post with that line. And if that pizza guy would ever get here, I could stop making that joke. Anyway, Cryptozoic ain't afraid of no ghosts and has launched their Kickstarter Campaign for the Ghostbusters II board game.
Who you gonna call?
Someplace that delivers breakfast. It's early.
And it's not quite time to call the Ghostbusters yet. That'll have to wait until April 11th. That's when Cryptozoic will be launching their Kickstarter campaign for Ghostbusters II, the board game. They've also posted up a couple extra details and a few art pieces.
Who you gonna call?
Out for pizza. It's lunchtime here.
Oh, and also the Ghostbusters. We should probably call them, too, since Amanda's head is spinning around and the walls are oozing green goo.
While we wait for them to get here, we can talk about Cryptozoic's announcement about a second Ghostbusters board game they're going to be coming out with.
Hello there, Saturday! Nice to see you could stop by. Do come in, have a seat, and make yourself at home.

I hope your Saturday is going nicely. I've got baking to do. Cookies, brownies, and maybe some other stuff. We'll see.

But that's me. As for you, it's time to get you some review articles to chew on.

Who you gonna call?
Your LGS to make sure that they have your copy of the Ghostbusters board game that you quite possibly have on reserve with them. Today is the release day, after all, so you should stop by and pick it up. No LGS? Sad. But you can also pick up the game online. So while you may have to wait for shipping, you can still get your copy.
Well, ghosts and such seems like an incredibly appropriate topic for this time of year. Y'know, with the Halloween thing and all. In fact, now that I think about it, I might just watch Ghostbusters on Saturday (along with the Evil Dead movies, just because). And shortly thereafter, I'll be able to play Ghostbusters, as Cryptozoic has announced the release date for their Ghostbusters board game.
Cryptozoic has announced that they will be shipping their Ghostbusters board game to retailers in October. Seems a rather fitting month for a board game about ghosts to hit shelves, doesn't it? This cooperative board game has players taking on the roles of the Ghostbusters as they try and send ghosts into containment, all the while trying to keep from getting slimed. The retail price of the game will be $85. You can check out a list of the box contents below the cut.

From the announcement:
Cryptozoic are in their final hours over on Kickstarter for their Ghostbusters Kickstarter campaign. They've come quite a long way and are well over 5x funded (at the time of typing this. It could be a lot higher now, depending on when you see this). They've got a lot of Kickstarter exclusives and add-ons. In fact, they've created an Add-On pack that has all the add-ons on it, and it's priced at $25 less than if you got all the add-ons separately. That was nice of them.
Anyway, the end credits are about to roll, so if you want to go with them, you'd better get in on the action now.

From the campaign:
Cryptozoic has launched their Kickstarter campaign for their new Ghostbusters board game. This, officially licensed game, is the first Ghostbusters board game in almost 30 years (wow, am I that old?). The game is co-op, with players playing as one of the four titular Ghostbusters, as they look to hunt down and trap ghosts, leveling up their skills as they do so. The figures are designed by IDW's Dan Schoening (he's doing the comic book, too). The basic game comes with several scenarios, so there's several ways to play.

I'd say it really makes me want to watch the movie again, but I just did about a week ago. Aw, hell with it, I'll probably go watch it again.
This person is not one which has a fear associated with the apparitions of people that have passed on.
