Comic book series Hellboy turns board game in latest Kickstarter project

A miniatures board game based on the popular comic book series, Hellboy has launched on Kickstarter, achieving six times its original funding target.

The project has secured £748,601 from 8,457 backers and counting, smashing its target of £100,000 with 28 days of campaigning still to go.

Inspired by the comic series from Mike Mignola, Hellboy: The Board Game is a co-operative game for one to four players as they ‘explore gothic locations, hunt down clues, discover artefacts, fight horrific creatures and face off against terrifying bosses.”

The game, created by Mantic Games secured its funding in less than 24 hours of the project going live on the Kickstarter platform.

It will ship with 108 plastic miniatures, including additional BPRD agents, an alternate version of Hellboy and additional enemies with their own unique scenarios.
