Aussies Are Making An Official Terminator 2 Board Game

Designed and created by the same team behind the Hand of Fate board game and Burger Up, Aussie board gamers Rule & Make have gotten their hands on something pretty sweet: the rights to produce an official Terminator 2 board game.

A co-operative game for 1-4 players, T2029 tasks players with keeping John Connor alive until he can access Skynet central command. From there, the players have to reprogram the T800 and send it back in time to protect Puberty John Connor before the T1000 infiltrates.

The game uses a fair lot of dice, although gameplay isn’t actually reliant on die rolls. “Dice allow you to give orders to troops, but they are only rolled to refresh the dice pool that you draft from,” the campaign page says.

Players will also manage an army as they fight off Skynet’s armies, which involves a whole other set of orders, card draws, and strategy.

Games take around 90 minutes to complete, which sounds pretty good given all the moving parts, command cards, combat rules and encounters players would have to manage. Board to Death previewed the game at GenCon this year, which you can check out below.

It’ll cost you $87 to pledge for a copy of the game, with shipping totalling an extra $15. T2029 is scheduled to ship from May next year, and while it hasn’t hit its funding goal yet, it’s over halfway there with 29 days remaining. (Also, the Aussies behind Rule & Make have nailed every campaign they’ve created, so there’s that.)
