Everything Epic is currently finalizing the game elements for the upcoming Big Trouble in Little China: The Game board game, with the expected release coming later this year.
Big Trouble in Little China: The Game a thematic, cooperative, strategy, miniatures, adventure game that allows 1-4 players to experience the events they remember from the film as well as create new adventures of their own. The game plays in two acts: Act One uses the front side of the game board: Chinatown, while Act Two takes place on the back: Lo Pan’s lair. Players will choose from six characters, each with unique abilities, and will use custom dice for actions, quest tasks and combat. They will also be able to use the communal fate dice, which come with a fun risk/reward mechanic. 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?
The game sounds interesting, especially with the double-sided board. The miniatures that have been shared online look highly detailed, and I hope the final product is as fun as it looks.
