Tabletop gaming continues to explode with every IP getting a shot at the board game treatment. Dynamite Entertainment has announced it is developing a miniature-based tabletop game based on the Army of Darkness property.

Army of Darkness Boardgame

Designed by Lynnvander Studios (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game, and Dynamite’s Re-Animator), Army of Darkness: The Board Game will see players take on the role of unlikely hero Ash Williams, the chainsaw-wielding, time-traveling S-Mart employee. In this multiplayer game, Ash and his allies will lead an army of medieval knights against a horde of unliving Deadite zombies.

“Army of Darkness was the first license we signed at Dynamite and it still holds a very special place in our heart,” said CEO Nick Barrucci, “so we couldn’t think of a better, more exciting brand to use for our first miniatures game. We can’t wait to show tabletop gamers and horror fans what we have planned!”

At this time, Dynamite Entertainment has not announced a release date, price, or much else beyond the development stage. It will be interesting to see if Dynamite moves this to Kickstarter for final funding.
