Grab a slice of your favorite pizza and get ready for some mutant fun! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(TMNT): Shadows of the Past Board Game is kicking butt on Kickstarter right now. It will get you right in the nostalgic feels when you play as the turtle brothers; battling foot clan and thwarting Shredder’s evil plans.
Kevin Wilson, designer of Descent and Arkham Horror (both awesome games), has teamed up with the creative team for IDW to keep this exciting adventure game true to its roots. Each of the turtles have their own unique stats, special moves, and custom dice to help them face-off against the villain’s custom deck of action cards.
Jess: While the game looks pretty cool, the TMNT: Shadows of the Past is going to run you for more than the price of a few throwing stars. For $90 + shipping you’ll get the Kickstarter Exclusive Box, the April Hero Pack, and the stretch goals Stretch Goals. If you want the special edition Exclusive Works Pizza Box version you are going to have to fork over $150. The Works includes the normal minis plus a variant set of the game pieces based off the art of Kevin Eastman.
I am a big fan Kevin Wilson’s games so I anticipate this game being a winner (though I do wish the Kickstarter had more in the way of actual gameplay information…that always makes us a little nervous).
Head on over to the IDW Games Kickstarter for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past Board Game and pledge now (if your wallet can handle it).
