Various monsters from the Godzilla franchise are ready to throw down in a new expandable card game from Bandai. Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Destoroyah, MechaGodzilla, Space Godzilla, Jet-Jaguar, and Burning Godzilla are featured in this video trailer. The game is designed by Ryan Miller, a co-designer of Epic PVP and Axis & Allies and Zombies. It is for two to four players and features the Chrono Clash system:

Instead of traditional turn-based play, in this system players share a power resource track, moving the token back and forth based on the power value of the cards they play.  The position of the token determines when play passes to the other player.

The Godzilla Card Game releases in September 2019, and subsequently, there will be store tournaments with prize support. The base game includes four pre-built decks of fifty cards and a communal sideboard of sixteen cards.

Although this will not be the first board/card game featuring Godzilla, many more would have to be released to catch up to the number of movies (35 as of 2019).

Avalon Hill has announced the launch of the newest board game in the Axis & Allies series – Axis & Allies & Zombies. Introducing zombies adds a fun, modern twist into the iconic World War II strategy game.

“It is 1941, and the world is at war. The Axis war machine is crushing everything in its path, while the Allies are rallying together to mount a heroic stand. And then zombies show up.”

Axis & Allies & Zombies includes an introductory scenario to provide new players with an easy-to-setup prelude, as well as quick-start rules for more experienced players to jump right in. The game also includes an expansion for the Axis & Allies 1942 board game.

Wizards of the Coast (under the Avalon Hill imprint) have made more details available regarding the upcoming Axis & Allies & Zombies board game.

“In this new take on the iconic World War II strategy board game, each player takes command of one of the major powers, joining either the Axis or the Allies. Players fight for victory against the opposing faction and a terrifying new foe—zombies. Will players survive the onslaught or succumb to the uprising?” [source]

The game will be set in 1941 with the world at war. The Axis war machine is crushing everything in it’s path while the Allies are gathering their forces to make a stand. Then the zombies show up. Players will take the role of a commander of one of the five major powers (Germany, the Empire of Japan, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, and the USA) while the zombies will be a non-player faction . Winning battles will help to defeat your human enemies but it will also feed the ever growing, flesh-eating horde with fresh corpses. Players will have to fight both their human enemies as well as the undead hordes.
