He’s back! Just like he said he would be. That’s right…The Terminator: The Official Board Game is now live on Kickstarter, and it’s killing it. After only two days, it’s earned $137,214 against a goal of $120,000, and Dread Central got a mention on the Kickstarter page.
It comes from the fine folks over at Space Goat Productions, and will will feature two scenarios, one of which is set in 1984 and the other in 2029. You’ll be able to play as either the forces of Skynet or the human resistance.
The series may have waned in recent years (and lord knows what direction future films will take), but it looks like the franchise has still got it. I mean my God, look at those damn miniatures! I want!
The Terminator™: The Official Board Game
An asymmetrical strategy game played across two boards based off of the iconic 1984 James Cameron film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The Terminator™: The Official Board Game is an asymmetrical strategy game for 2-5 players played across two boards: one in 1984 and one in 2029. One player takes control of all of Skynet’s forces: Hunter Killer machines, Terminator cyborgs, and more. The rest of the players take the role of the human resistance, struggling against the impossible odds of the machine uprising. Each of the two game boards play differently: 2029 focuses on light troop and resource management in a lopsided battle for dominance. 1984 focuses on personal missions with high stakes and intense pacing. Missions arise through the course of gameplay, and have players make decisions in 1984 that will affect the future, erasing and adding components in real time.
