Ghostbusters: The Board Game II

$767,568

In GHOSTBUSTERS: THE BOARD GAME II, one to four players take on the roles of the Ghostbusters. You'll investigate the mood slime that has flooded the city, causing earthquakes and riots in an attempt to bring Vigo and his minions back. The three brand-new campaigns have you taking on spectral threats like the Scoleri brothers, riding the Statue of Liberty, and battling through Vigo’s ghost army. The game features figures based on original designs by Dan Schoening and an original story by Erik Burnham, both veterans of IDW’s Ghostbusters comic book series.

The world is in danger! Are you ready to answer the call again?

Mat Elfring - Comic Vine

  • "Ghostbusters II builds on the success of its predecessor by adding new elements that will challenge and please the more experienced gamer."
  • "The Ghostbusters sequel adds new gameplay mechanics that add more tension, obstacles, and strategy to each session, all while delivering familiar elements from the second feature film."
Jason Fitzsimmons - Ghostbusters News

GameSpot 

“The new additions to the game are more appealing to longtime board gamers, without alienating new players”

Nerdist 

"This ain’t no regular sequel."

Slashfilm 

“The character and ghost sculpts in the game in the game are gorgeous.”

Comic Vine 

"From what we got to see in Ghostbusters II, they've really raised the bar in way of gameplay mechanics and additions that make it a more complex game, while still keeping this accessible to newbies."

Crowd Fund Insider 

"The perfect game for board game veterans and beginners alike."

GeekScape 

"I can’t stress how awesome it was that licensed art was used for this game. It made the whole experience feel more authentic."

Our miniatures utilize a 95-degree PVC process, making them sturdy and detailed, yet not brittle. The size of our minis varies from humans to ghosts, but our average sizes are 30mm, 50mm, and 100mm. Corporeal characters come in grey, spectral entities are translucent purple, and Plazms are translucent pink. Miniatures come unpainted.

For instructions on how to include add-ons with your pledge, please refer to the FAQs below.

From Zachary Hany of Four Faced Buddha and based on art from Dan Schoening, we have a custom-made Ghostbusters Firehouse that uses the techniques of Collapsible Construction to turn a flat board into a sturdy, working Dice Tower without the need of glue, scissors, or a paranormal quantum degree. It's simply a pop and click from flat to constructed and you can collapse it at any time for ease of use, storage, and transportation.

By putting this project on Kickstarter, we get to collaborate with the most important people in the world to us: the fans! You get a chance to tell us what you want from the game and we’ll do whatever we can to make it happen. The more support we get from you, the more extras we can include with the Kickstarter versions of the game. We’re talking EXCLUSIVE stuff you can’t get anywhere else! 

Kickstarter also gives you the chance to get the version of the game you want: You get to choose from a menu of awesome add-ons and tiers!

Shipping information - Please take note  

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter campaign ends through our Pledge Manager. The amount charged will be based on the ACTUAL cost required to ship you your games, stretch goals, and add-ons. Depending on where you are on this big planet we call home, we’ll either ship from the EU, Asia, Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers), or here in the States (backers in the U.S.A. and the rest of the world).

To give you a general sense of shipping costs, it will likely cost around $10 to ship to the U.S., $15 to Australia, $15-$25 to the EU and Canada, and $50 to South America and certain parts of Asia. Please remember: these are rough ESTIMATES so the cost of shipping may be higher/lower depending on the stretch goals unlocked, the tiers you specify, the add-ons you select, and other choices you make (remember, kids: always make good choices in life!). 

They say there are no guarantees in life, but that just ain’t true: You have our guarantee that we will do everything to get you all your rewards as quickly as possible and before it hits retail. Through Kickstarter, you’re getting a special version of the game at a special price, with exclusive items you can’t get anywhere else! Thanks for your support and for being the best fans in the world (a little bit of flattery never hurts, right?).

This game is EU and AUS friendly. If for some reason your courier charges you VAT fees, we will reimburse you. However, we are not responsible for taxes incurred in other countries outside of the EU (including but not limited to Brazil, etc.)

Risks and challenges

The estimated delivery date for Ghostbusters: The Board Game II is the end of Q2 2017. However, please keep in mind that this is a projected date and things can get delayed for various reasons: manufacturing problems, haunted shipping freighters, rivers of slime flowing through the streets. As a company that has produced many board games, we at Cryptozoic know that delays can occur during the production and shipping of a game. We promise you that we will produce a high quality game and we will not short change our fans by taking ANY shortcuts to make a specific date. As always, our goal is to send you the most incredible board game you’ve ever played. Should there be any delays, we will notify all backers immediately.
