Resident Evil 2 will be adapted to board games

I'm already seeing monster prices for the pack ... You can leave your opinion of the topic, if you are happy to finally have a board game. Or this is another Cash Grab from capcom.

This doesn't look like it'll be any good in my opinion, I'm not a big fan of board games. Halo has done a lot of board games already, each adding on new story content, some is VERY important information to understanding the canon. Can I expect this from capcom? No. Honestly don't expect anything story related to be in it. But I'll still look out for some in the odd chance there's any to be found.

Depending on what will be in it, it could be something for collectors to get, much like the card games that are RE based. I have all of the decks but one. Hopefully this board game will be worth while.

I can definitely see it as a collector's item. The setup of the game looks like a lot of work if its anything like the Mouse Trap game I had as a kid. Hopefully its not one of those deals once you set up all the pieces, you're tired and over wanting to play it by then!:D 
Now if they ever do a Monopoly RE Edition, I would have to get that.

This will not be a collector's item, it's a kickstarter project. The creator of this game also had the kickstarter project of  the dark souls board game and they had like 30k backers, this is RE which is way more popular. Capcom is just giving the name to that company which makes the game and everything, they are not spending a $ here. 


 Well the dark souls 3 board is LOADED with goodies, mostly due to strech goals, and it sure looksimpressive, here's an unboxing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEhwxRRueWs


The catch is that it cost 120$ and it's honestly a bad board game, but they had some nice ideas in there, so maybe this one will be great

If the price is right sure, be nice to own. I don't want to pay more than £50 for it considering I would probably never open it. So guess I will wait and see.

Kickstarter, whatever, I know some RE fans that will buy RE merch regardless. If people end up liking it, good for them. I'll stick with the games,action figures,and books for the timebeing. Like BSAArklay said, we will wait and see how all this turns out.

A board game sounds cool...I played some zombie board games and are quite fun (Zombie! Zombiecide...).

A zombie board game with RE2 scenarios, weapons, characters and creatures is something I'd really want to play.

A hands on playthrough of the board game by Raf Cordero for geeksandsundry.com. Raf state's he has not played any Resident Evil games other than the original. He states that the game has a great amount of tension and plays different to other similar board game types. The game is mostly about the player working solo whereas other board games may have you working as a unit.The rules sound like an average dungeons sort of board game (I think). Rolling the dice to advance and evade whilst collecting inventory and progressing through the board. Sounds like a fun game to play with friends of the series especially with some alcohol. I maintain that I would purchase at the right price.

A little harsh as we've had nothing confirmed as definative and this is at a KickStarter stage. I for one have optamism that if the same production levels that I've seen with the GamesWorkshop board games based on Warhammer & Warhammer 40K, and there's been nothing that I have seen to suggest otherwise, then this will be a great collection peice and game to play.
