Evil Dead 2 The Board Game ... Back From The Dead!!!

Recommended Posts

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1821440755/evil-dead-2-the-board-game?ref=profile_created

It's back. From the project page:

 

" A few years ago, another company successfully launched an Evil Dead 2 board game campaign that was never fulfilled to its backers. This other company collected all of the money and delivered nothing to thousands of Evil Dead 2 fans that participated in their project. Because of this travesty, Jasco Games, in collaboration with Lynnvander Studios, the Evil Dead 2 licensing group, and our other partners have come together to bring Evil Dead 2 The Board Game back from the dead. We're calling this campaign a Heartthrob Campaign. What that means is if this campaign successfully funds, all of the backers of the previous campaign (that we had nothing to do with), will be getting a copy of Evil Dead 2 The Board Game for only the cost of shipping (that's right, free + shipping)."

I wanted to make a separate post for my thoughts, though this might get attached to the main project post anyway.

 

I was a backer of the original project, so I have a very selfish hope that this new project succeeds. Even if it does, I will have to pay (again) for shipping. I paid $95 the first time for a deluxe early bird and shipping. Shipping does seem to be EU, Canada, Aus and US friendly at least.

 

I do think it's a pretty interesting game, which is why I backed in the first place. It's a semi co-operative game where any player can become a deadite and turn on the others during a mission.

 

They have an optimistic goal, $195,000 with only one pledge level of $59. Of course they need to be able to fund a very large run (the original project had 6143 backers, plus there were retailer pledges and the FAQ section mentions some games sold elsewhere that will also be fulfilled if this funds, so I can understand the high amount needed. 

 

They have the complete game so fulfillment shouldn't take too long. They have April 2020 as a delivery date. No listed stretch goals, but there is a graphic novel add on available.

 

The minis look nice, though the details look a bit soft. The Detailed Model Turns (Good & Evil) section has some good looks. Decent looking board game figures, and they've already gone through licensor approval during the original ks.

I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole. 

Lynnvander have failed miserably to deliver on kickstarters that they've run in this past, they still owe me about 70 miniatures from 4 years ago. Endless broken promises

Lynnvander isn't the lead on this project, they're just a hired design team. The project creator, Jasco Games does have a track record of completing and shipping the KS rewards. But I can understand the feelings.

I see this the other way around.  I think Jasco is really laudable for attempting to clean up the mess the Space Goat left on the floor.

Jasco doesn't have to have anything to do with the failed Evil Dead project.  But they're trying to pick up the pieces for the backers and the brand.

Seriously, if this game funds, they're planning to deliver to all new backers as well as backers of the original project- and I think that's really awesome.  And Jasco have a strong track record and good reputation.

I didn't back the first Evil Dead 2 project, but I'm definitely in favor of this game funding and delivering to all of those previous backers.

I didn't follow the original, don't really see an interest in my gaming group for this, and the minis aren't multipurpose enough to use in my games, but I really respect their plan to provide for backers of the other company's failure. That's really awesome.

      Bill Webb's Decks of Dirty Tricks 
      Bill Webb's Deck of Dirty Tricks has been used and enjoyed for years in convention and home campaigns. It was made for use during game sessions to encourage unexpected events and player interactivity. It has proved to be one of Frog God Games' most popular products and now new decks are available!Each card has a flavor test of a pop culture reference, meme, pun, or worse. Such as… What is this? An invisibility cloak for ants? Followed by a mechanical thing to happen in game. Such as… Target gains invisibility for 3 rounds.
      Options are available for 1,2, or 3 decks (your choice).
      The available decks are-
      The Classic Deck of Dirty Tricks The dungeon-themed - “Bill Webb’s Deck of Dirty Tricks, Volume II” A more Wilderness themed" Bill Webb’s Deck of Dirty Tricks, Volume III" Plus…
      The full deal- Get all three decks and a SIGNED copy of Bill Webb’s Book of Dirty Tricks
      The Classic Deck of Dirty Tricks.
      Made for use during game sessions to encourage unexpected events and player interactivity. The cards are all printed with suggestions for changes in the narration and their potential mechanical implications. It is system neutral but works best with any one of the many variations of the world's most popular roleplaying game.
      The New Expansion Decks of Dirty Tricks
      We are bringing 2 new decks for this Indiegogo project. We are also reprinting the classic (and sold out classic Deck of Dirty tricks . The expansion decks are planned for 48 cards with, often requested blank cards for creating your very own "dirty tricks" for your home or convention game.

      The Tiny Print Run
      Why Indiegogo?
      Frog God Games is continuing the use of this IndieGoGo crowdfunding method for Deck of Dirty Tricks This method is almost the inverse of how we design our crowdfunding projects on Kickstarter. We call it the 'Tiny Print Run'.
      Thus, Indiegogo projects by Frog God Games will-
      ·         Be short in duration
      ·         Be limited to a single title
      ·         Have options priced between $5-$50
      ·         Have simple fulfillment process that does not use Backerkit
       
      Why the Tiny Print Run?
      Since 2012 our crowdfunding approach has been extravagant in every way. Ambitious with massive page counts, plus numerous add-on options and stretch goals. All supporting a primary title itself as many as 990 pages.
      This has resulted in Kickstarter's with memorable pledge rewards that include top-quality hardcover books with sometimes dozens of stretch goal bonuses and add-on extras. These are awesome AND they are expensive to buy for customers like you because they are very expensive to make for publishers like us.
      Why not use Kickstarter?
      We will still be using Kickstarter, frequently, for our large-scale projects. These smaller projects are happening in response to the feedback we have heard from both fans and 'almost' fans alike. We hear the request for less expensive options for our projects and products all the time. A second frequent desire expressed to us, whether at conventions, on social media or in email, is for a larger selection of smaller, faster-paced adventures that can be completed in 2-3 sessions and not necessitate a full two year campaign.
      Additionally, Frog God Games has grown in both sales and brand awareness.  This opportunity will give us the additional resources to invest in the very best books in all of our formats. 
      Project Reward 
      With the wishes of the fans in mind, this and future Indiegogo projects will fund standalone projects that are both affordable and fun. This project, as well future Tiny Print Run projects, is narrowly focused. 
      Project Delivery
      PDF Perks
      We will email the instructions to all eligible supporters with instructions on accessing PDF items. The PDF files are distributed using Constant Contact service and our web store. You will need to have a customer account on the Frog God Games website to get your PDF; it's how we keep track of everything and grants unlimited access by you to your reward.
      The Indiegogo perk PDF files are 'purchased' at zero cost by supporters (as they are paid for during the Indiegogo promotion) at the Frog God Games web store using a coupon code. That code we will be sent via Constant Contact to the address provided by Indiegogo. Please contact us with any questions/requests about this.
      Deck and Softcover Perks
      Deck and softcover perks will be mailed to the address provided by us via Indiegogo.

      I supported a previous kickstarter she did, and I love her pins. They're a good size to wear on a lot of things. I have my mimic-eating-dice on one of my hats, and the mushroom dude on another. If this is your sort of thing, she's reliable and communicates well. I highly support her work.
