‘Hellboy: The Board Game’ Destroys $1 Million in Kickstarter Funding

Hellboy: The Board Game (Dark Horse/Mantic Games)Mantic Games and Dark Horse Comics should be very pleased Hellboy: The Board Game has passed the $1 million mark in Kickstarter funding just a couple days into its run. I have to say the miniature sculpts look awesome as one to four players will take the role of members of the B.P.R.D. as they take on villains drawn from Hellboy’s legendary comic series. Hellboy: The Board Game is for ages 14+ and plays in about 60-90 minutes. You can secure the core game, an expansion, and other exclusive goodies at the $132.00 pledge level. The project runs through May 25th, with an expected delivery of February 2019.

From Mantic:

Designed by James M. Hewitt – the brains behind the likes of DreadBall, Blood Bowl 2016, Necromunda: Underhive, and Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower – Hellboy: The Board Gamefeatures incredibly detailed, pre-assembled PVC plastic miniatures that capture the unique look and feel of Mike Mignola’s visionary work.

Hellboy: The Board Game gives you the chance to take control of an iconic member of the BPRD. Choose from Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and Johann Kraus before equipping your agent with additional items that will help in the mission ahead. Each trinket, charm or weapon costs money though, so you’ll need to spend wisely.

Hellboy: The Board Game Minis (Dark Horse/Mantic Games)Each of the missions in the core game begins by reading a BPRD Case File. This will set the scene for the investigation ahead and give hints about what threats you may encounter. The contents of each Case File are top secret, so the first time you play you’ll have no idea what you’re about to face!

During play, agents must carefully balance the Information Gathered track against the ominous Impending Doom track. Information Gathered represents the clues you uncover about the monster you’re hunting, while the Impending Doom track marks how close humanity is to the brink of destruction.

Do you spend valuable time investigating the scene to find a vital piece of the puzzle that could expose a crucial weakness of your foe, but risk the Impending Doom track reaching its devastating finale? Or do you forget the clues and rush through to a final confrontation before the monster has gathered its strength? No one said being a BPRD Agent would be easy.
