Space Goat Productions, Inc. has launched a Kickstarter for the officially license board game, The Terminator™. This is their second Kickstarter campaign, having successfully funded Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game in July of last year. The game has some great looking miniatures, cool “cyber dice”, and an interesting mechanic that involves playing on two boards at the same time. The game is designed by Taylor Smith, who also designed their Evil Dead 2 game. Let’s hope this game has us saying “I’ll be back” after each play!
“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.”
