Mega Man: The Board Game!

Here's an instant success story! With 36 days to go, Jasco Games has collected over 181 thousand dollars for their licensed Kickstarter...which is a tiny bit more than the 70k they were shooting for!

Destined to grace tabletops everywhere, the board game takes the classic formula that made the original Blue Bomber so memorable and transfers it to a whole new arena.

Mega Man the Board Game is a 2-8 player “Side Scrolling” board game. Our team wanted to develop a game that has both the feeling of a single player Mega Man game and the excitement and interaction of a party game. After years of testing the game mechanics, we found a way to capture the experience of playing a Mega Man game while adding a new element unique to our board game: players will both control their character and, for the first time, control Dr. Wily’s forces as you impede the progress of other players.

Our belief is that all players should be having fun, even when it’s not their turn, which means no sitting around and waiting for other players to make a move. This methodology creates a more fun and strategic way to play Mega Man! Imagine yourselves not only focusing on blasting through the stage and getting the power ups, but also planning your next deal with an ally at the table to help bring down that pesky Mega Man player sitting to your left. You will learn that, while you are defeating Robot Masters, powering up and making your way to Dr. Wily’s Castle, you will have formed and broken many alliances, and may have even stopped your former ally from clearing the spikes along the way.

So can you handle this kind of betrayal, strategizing and cunning? If you’re up for the challenge, and ready to have some fun, then get ready to challenge your friends and experience a Mega Man adventure unlike any you’ve played before.

With their collected total at $182k and climbing, you might imagine some stretch goals have been unlocked.

...and if they hit 500k, all their pieces get colored!

Pledge levels are disappearing every second, so jump in there while you still can!
