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


Recommended Posts


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 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.

                 Eerie in the contrast of their lethal size and silent movement, ScorpionMechs are deployed on the orbital and planetside battlefield when no quarter is to be given to the enemy, and none expected.  
                  They're colony killers.  

                  You send them in when you want the enemy base and any feeble defenders protecting it razed to the ground.
                These scuttling terrors can chop enemy armors in half in close quarters or pound them to pieces from a distance.  Using a variety of modular payloads, the ScorpionMech can tailor its weapons suite to the mission, whether it be cold, quiet up-close killing, napalm and gatling cascades at ballistic distances, or missiles beyond the horizon.
      (Pre-production 28mm ScorpionMech sample shown with additional Viper Suit weaponry.  Waldo and PugBots shown for size ref)

               Though they usually make their way overland to the target, there are rumors of ScorpionMechs deploying from orbit with bolted-on belly packs containing fuel and maneuvering thrusters.  The thought of an orbital insertion of these lethal machines is terrifying, but not beyond reason.  There is even a confirmed case of a jetpack-equipped ScorpionMech being used to rip a pirate raider's ship to pieces during an attempted boarding action.  Needless to say, scratch one pirate ship.
                Viper suit pilots may try and put a brave face on it, but when faced with a ScorpionMech, they know that the best place to be is somewhere else.

      Midlam doesn't need an introduction, do they?   
      Their latest collection of cute and funny minis are ready to hurt your wallet:

      As usual, this is an 8day KS, so hurry up.

      Just launched a Kickstarter for a comprehensive line of 6mm Chinese Warring States miniatures.  There are 16 different packs to choose from, with all miniatures sculpted by Chris Smith of Wakes Emporium.  
      The sculptor also has a Patreon focused on small scale miniatures, and is definitely worth a look for any 3D printing hobbyists with an interest in the smaller scales:
      Due to my inability to collect VAT, the KS is closed to pledges in the UK, but all miniatures will be made available to UK customers after the campaign via my Etsy store which remits the VAT for me.
      Some shots of the packs on offer:
