About this project
The officially licensed Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience Evil Dead 2 fans have been dying for--featuring at least 8 custom figures with art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.
These dice will be constructed by Mike Pasquale of http://www.evildeadworkshed.com/. He recovered the wood from the original Evil Dead 2 set and will be signing the certificates of authenticity.
More Add-Ons will unlock as the campaign goes on! To buy these Add-Ons, simply increase your pledge amount by how much is listed. After the campaign ends you will then be able to select your options through your Backerkit survey.
You'll play as your favorite Evil Dead 2 characters (and Jake) as you explore the cabin for missing pages of the Ex-Mortis. If you find all of the pages, you can open a portal to banish the Kandarian Demons and win the game. But you will have to face Deadites, demons, Ash’s Freaking Hand!, that tree, and the deadite versions of your fellow players to do it!
For the last year, Space Goat has been publishing the critically-acclaimed Evil Dead 2 comic book that cater to hardcore Evil Dead fans. Now we’re doing the same with the official-licensed board game. Space Goat is also the comic book industry’s premier production studio. We’ve provided art and creative services for Marvel, DC, Nike, Microsoft, Universal Studios, Riot Games, and Blizzard Entertainment. You can be sure that this premium box of Deadite-slaying goodness is in good hands.
Kickstarter is a fantastic tool not just for funding great projects, but for helping fans become aware those projects exist while getting them involved with the creative process. That’s what we hope to do with our Kickstarter campaign. Plus with the help of Evil Dead fans and Kickstarter we can add more bad ass miniatures, game play expansions, and extra Evil Dead greatness that we would never be able to offer without their help.
Additionally, we want to reward hardcore Evil Dead fans by offering exclusives to Kickstarter backers, like a deluxe edition of the game with an Ex-Mortis box, which has miniatures of combat Ash and Deadite Henrietta. We want to make the best, most official Evil Dead 2 game possible, and we can only do that with your help.
Some of the top game and horror press outlets like Comic Book Resources, Deadites Online, HorrorFuel, iHorror, Bloody Disgusting, Popcorn Horror and MovieWeb have covered the game, and here's what other press has had to say about it:

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter ends based on actual shipping costs and is collected via Backerkit. This allows us to charge shipping fairly for all backers and avoid a 'one size fits all' mentality to shipping.
Below are shipping estimates for the core game (estimated to be around 3lbs). These are just estimates. Costs may rise due to weight increase as more items are unlocked via stretch goals and add-on purchases you choose. This will be calculated by Backerkit after backer surveys are turned in.

- EU (including UK) - $20.00
- Canada - $20
- AU - $35
- Mexico - $35
- Most other countries - $35
We proudly offer EU-Friendly shipping!
Risks and challenges
Evil Dead 2™: The Official Board Game has been developed by Space Goat Productions with full support and license from StudioCanal.
Products presented on this Kickstarter page and during the campaign may be subject to change in order to meet the expectations of the StudioCanal licensing agreement.
By pledging on this Kickstarter you acknowledge that the final look and contents of the pledges may change and differ from what is presented at the start of the campaign.
This is our first Kickstarter project. But as a production company with decades of experience, we are aware of potential delays including production, shipping, customs, creation of art assets, and licensing approval.
We have estimated the delivery for November 2016 but please understand this is only an estimate. Due to the global logistics involved in shipping, some regions may receive their pledges sooner than others. We will, however, ensure a global release of any Evil Dead 2: The official Board Game products for retailers.
We have prepared as much as possible with our production for a successful Kickstarter, however we will refund pledges if for some unforeseen reason the game cannot be delivered at all.
Refunds may be given within 60 days of the campaign ending including fees. After this time refunds may be given minus the Kickstarter and payment processing fees due to us not being able to claim them back after 60 days.
If we have begun the packaging and shipment stages of the project (around 6-8 weeks before the actual shipping date) we are unable to refund at this stage.
Refunds within 60 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit/debit card. Refunds after 60 days of the campaign ending are processed via PayPal only.
This is a USD Kickstarter and refunds will be processed in USD for the amount received, excluding any applicable fees dependent on the day at which the refund is processed as detailed above.
Terms and Conditions

You are responsible for import or other duties that may be payable to relevant tax authorities.
