January 31, 2018 - 6:15am
Rambo is the quintessential action movie, and no one can mistake who it is when you see the big muscles, black hair, and iconic red bandanna.  So turning it into a board game was going to happen at some point, and Everything Epic is taking their shot with Rambo the Board Game on Kickstarter.  This is a full y cooperative game where you will take on the guise of Rambo and his special forces friends as they go on missions to raid enemy encampments, recuse POWs, defend a secret base, and more.  Each mission has it's own box of cards, thematically shaped like a machine gun magazine, that contain tactic cards, equipment cards, as well as the objectives and threats associated with that mission.  From there it's up to you to figure out how you want to complete the mission.  You can use stealth to try and get in and get out without being noticed, you can lay traps and draw the enemy in to take them out, or you can get go in guns blazing and sort things out later.  Any way you choose, card play will be key to success as battle is determined by dice rolling. The base box comes with everything you need in order to play out the events in First Blood Part II and will run you a pledge of $60.  You can add another $40 to get an expansion to play out the original Rambo Movie, First blood, as well as get minis for all the enemies to replace the standees in the base game.  And finally, you can back at the all encompassing level of $150 to get another expansion added on to play out the missions in Rambo III.  Needless to say, if you ever wanted to live out the dream and be John Rambo (at least in cardboard form), check out the Kickstarter today.
