Everything Epic and Flipside have announced that they are now accepting pre-orders for the upcoming board game Big Trouble in Little China: The Game, which is based upon John Carpenter’s cult classic movie starring Kurt Russell, and is priced at $99.95.
The game allows 1-4 players to work together and experience the events that they remember from the film as well as create new adventures of their own, with dozens of film inspired story quests and 40 highly detailed miniatures to fire up the imagination.
The game plays in two acts: Act One, “The Quest for Little China,” uses the front side of the game board– Chinatown–while Act Two, “The Final Showdown,” takes place on the reverse side in Lo Pan’s Lair. Players can choose from six iconic hero characters, each with individual abilities, and use custom dice for actions, quest tasks, skill checks and combat. They will also be able to use the communal Fate Dice, which include a unique risk/reward mechanic that gives additional actions or successes for checks when needed, but it can come with a price. 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?
By preordering the game now, fans will receive a deluxe, limited edition version which includes the core game as well as several extra components to accommodate up to two additional players bringing the total to six. It also features an exclusive variant box and a Legacy of Lo Pan campaign-style quest line which adds new epic hero abilities as well as a unique Showdown for the second act of the game. The retail edition of the game will be available online and in stores later this year though it will not include these special edition features, so be sure to save this “green-eyed girl” before it’s too late!
