With the Gears of War franchise being one of the top selling games today, they have handled the series in a couple of other areas. They have had a series of books, a graphic novel, and even attempted a film. However, the idea of a film adaption is not working out as some have hoped. So how about we throw a board game in the mix.
Fantasy Flight Games, who has produced board games based on popular franchise games, such as Lord of the Rings, Twilight, and A Game of Thrones, has added Gears of War: The Board Game, to the list. Although a release date has not been set, Many fans of the franchise are waiting impatiently for the release.
The concept of the game is the same as the video game, destroy the Locust horde. The object of the game is to work together with your teamates and get through different missions to defeat the Locusts and win the game. The maps are set up based on a mission, which also means the maps are setup randomly; it’s not the same game every time.
Hopefully the boom-stick card will be as powerful on paper, as it is on your TV screen.
