Official Mega Man board game Kickstarter is Mega successful in its first 48-hours
Mega Man Board Game with Card Game elements? Go here to Kickstart!
Editor’s Note: It should be reported that due to Jasco's licensing agreement with Capcom, it can only deliver games to residents living in North America.
If you're curious about how the game plays, basically, it's a strategy game built for two-eight players. One player will be Mega Man, while the rest will play as the robot masters who he must defeat. Some cards will act as power-ups for both sides and others will act as traps and obstacles for The Blue Bomber to over come. Mega Man will also have some extra lives to keep things fair. From the sounds of it, it's pretty faithful to the spirit of the video games.
Jasco Games is working with Capcom to Kickstart an all new Mega Man BOARD GAME. That's right, a board game. But it's not JUST a board game, as it also has deck-building card game elements! AND IT'S ALL BASED ON THE FIRST MEGA MAN GAME! What more could you want?!
It seems incomplete now, but of the $70K they asked for, they've hit over $200K in just two days. If you're interested in backing the project, you'll have to keep in mind that you'll have to pledge at least $70 to get your own copy of the game. But if you have or are willing to spend $140, I suggest you donate enough for the DELUXE pack since you'd getting every single stretch goal (which is potentially several extra game pieces and card sets, which would normally cost an additional $5-$15 each).
I took a pretty good look at it from a meta-standpoint. I mean, you all know how much I love Pokemon. Well, that translates to board games and card games and I must say, it looks awesome. Here's what it's most likely going to look like, but check the link below for more info.
