I have no idea why an idea this perfect would ever need to be Kickstarted, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited about this super cool looking Ghostbusters board game. Particularly since Ghostbusters is in the public discussion in the wake of remake news.
But this Ghostbusters board game is purely based on the original cast, and the original vision of Ghostbusters. It's clearly influenced by the old comic book to the extent that the artist who worked on the comic, Dan Schoening, is actually producing the art for the board game.
In just a handful of days, the Ghostbusters board game has massively exceeded its original Kickstarter goal of $250,000. It's currently sitting at $410,000 and I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up topping $1 million at this rate. Really, by investing in this Kickstarter you're essentially pre-ordering an early version of the board game. Which is cool in my book.
