If you love movies and love board games then this is the one for you! Big Trouble in Little China: The Game is designed by Chris Batarlis and Boris Polonsky, and they created an awesome game for the John Carpenter movie classic. The game is still in development, but we have some information about the game, along with box art!
It’s a thematic, cooperative, strategy, miniatures, adventure game that allows 1-4 players to experience the events they remember from the film as well as create new adventures of their own. The game plays in two acts: Act One uses the front side of the game board: Chinatown, while Act Two takes place on the back: Lo Pan’s lair. Players will choose from six characters, each with unique abilities, and will use custom dice for actions, quest tasks and combat. They will also be able to use the communal fate dice, which come with a fun risk/reward mechanic. After completing quests and upgrading their characters, players will move to the back of the board for the big showdown with Lo Pan! Will the heroes stop Lo Pan’s evil scheme in time, or is everything gonna go to hell?
Big Trouble in Little China: The Game will be available for pre-order later this year. For more updates on the game sign-up here.
