Officially Licensed Ghostbusters™ Board Game available soon from Cryptozoic Entertainment and Sony Pictures Consumer Products
Lake Forest, CA – Oct. 29, 2015 – Cryptozoic Entertainment today announced Ghostbusters™: The Board Game will be available on retail shelves starting November 11, 2015. The cooperative tabletop game lets fans relive classic moments from the beloved film series, with up to four players teaming up bust ghosts and banish ghouls to the spirit world. The game was developed through a Kickstarter campaign and raised over $1.5M, making it the eighth most-funded board game of all time. Ghostbusters™: The Board Game will be available for a suggested retail price of $85 in stores and online.
Ghostbusters™: The Board Game is a game for 1-4 players, ages 15 and up. Players choose one of the four Ghostbusters character figures (Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz) and then select from one of the game’s pre-written scenarios, beginning a game session that lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the chosen scenario(s) and degree of difficulty. Each of the Ghostbusters has unique traits and talents that can assist the entire team, with highly cooperative gameplay. As players gain experience from banishing spirits, the Ghostbusters level up, gaining new abilities that help them take on greater challenges. The team can also hop in the Ecto-1, the Ghostbusters’ converted ambulance, to help them quickly move through the city.
Ghostbusters™: The Board Game includes the 48 custom mini figures, including the four Ghostbusters character figures (Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz), 10 double-sided map tiles, 6 dice, 43 tokens, 4 player cards, 6 ghost cards, 15 unique scenarios, and more!
