The Terminator will be back — as an official board game

Posted on

Over the past couple of months, we’ve brought you news about board games based on two of the greatest ever films to star Kurt Russell: The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China. What if you like ’80s movie-themed board games but don’t like Kurt Russell? Well, that’s just crazy talk! However, if you are looking for something with a more, say, Schwarzenegger-ian vibe then you might care to know that, as of Tuesday, you can pre-order The Terminator: The Official Board Game.

Published by Space Goat Productions and funded by a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, The Terminator: The Official Board Game is a strategy game played across two boards, one in 1984 and one in 2029. A single player takes control of all the forces of the Skynet machines: Hunter-killer flying machines, Terminator endoskeletons, and new robots. The rest of the players take the role of the human resistance, struggling against the impossible odds of the machine uprising.

You can pre-order the game at the BackerKit website and see images of it, below.
