Hellboy Board Game Smashes Crowdfunding Goal, Hits $1 Million in a Day

Hellboy Board Game Smashes Crowdfunding Goal, Hits $1 Million in a Day

As well as more comics and a rebooted movie series, Hellboy fans can now look forward to a board game based on Mike Mignola’s supernatural world.

Mignola himself in on board to bring a new era of Anung Un Rama to theaters with Lionsgate’s R-rated movie. However, a Kickstarter-funded board game based on the comic book source material could arrive at about the same time.

Hellboy: The Board Game rocketed past the nearly $140,000 funding goal set by Mantic Games and Dark Horse within the first 24 hours of the campaign. It’s received more than $1 million in pledges, with 28 days to go.

Hoping to capture the Gothic themes of Mignola’s popular comics, the game tasks players with becoming members of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. Whether playing as Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman or Johann Kraus, gamers are expected to “explore Gothic locations, hunt down clues, discover artifacts, fight horrific creatures and face off against terrifying bosses.”

Designed by James Hewitt, who’s responsible for DreadBall, Blood Bowl 2016, Necromunda: Underhive and Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower, everything from “The Rasputin Scenario” to the PVC plastic miniatures attempts to perfectly recreate the look and feel of Mignola’s work. Shipping with more than 108 of the miniatures, Hellboy: The Board Game comes with everyone from Nazi Troopers to Professor Trevor Bruttenholm.

Fans can expect to roll the dice for Hellboy: The Board Game in February 2019.
