'The Terminator' Board Game Is Coming
The Terminator is back—this time, in board game form. Space Goat Productions, a Washington-based comic book studio, has announced that it’s launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund an official game based on the classic 1984 movie. The campaign is slated to go live on February 15.
Space Ghost Productions has teamed up with Lynnvander Studios—the Canadian game design studio responsible for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: the Board Game and Galaxy Quest: the Board Game—to design The Terminator game. In a news release, it's described as “an asymmetrical strategy game played across two boards, one in 1984 and one in 2029.” One player controls the game’s Skynet machines (Hunter Killer flying machines, Terminator Endoskeletons, and a few new robots), and other players are members of the human resistance fighting against the machine uprising.
The Terminator Kickstarter isn’t live yet, but fans of the movie can sign up to receive email updates. Once it’s up and running, the campaign will provide backers with a discount on The Termination Box, a box of game accessories and miniatures. For more information, visit the game's website.
