Ok, I'm a red blooded kid of the 1980s and I liked the Rambo movies (and the more recent one also).

I just have some questions regarding the game's theme:

1) How gory will this game be ?
2) Will it play into Rambo's haunted past with flashbacks into his traumatic Vietnam War past ?
3) Will the game focus on Rambo in special forces training or will he be established as a vet. in this game ?
4) Will Rambo have a homemade bow and explosive tipped arrow ?
5) Will Colonel Trautman feature in this game ?
6) Will this game focus on young Rambo in the Vietnam War ?, middle aged Rambo (in the 1980s movie) or old Rambo (retired in Burma in the 2008 John Rambo movie) ?
7 Can John Rambo find peace in this game ?

Hey David,
I'll answer your questions the best I can below in red:

I just have some questions regarding the game's theme:

1) How gory will this game be ? TBD, the artwork is still in progress! However, I'm not expecting any major gore since the gore would happen during the action and the heroes and villains wouldn't start out gory.

2) Will it play into Rambo's haunted past with flashbacks into his traumatic Vietnam War past ?
At this time, we do not have those themes worked in.
We will be focusing on his missions and the teams he works with on missions and events. The major time this may come into mention is in the "First Blood" scenarios which will most likely be Solo and/or one VS All missions.



3) Will the game focus on Rambo in special forces training or will he be established as a vet. in this game ?

The game will take place in different time periods. Rambo will be an established vet no matter what! He starts as a Green Beret so he's fairly experienced like the rest of the Baker Team, no matter how old he is


4) Will Rambo have a homemade bow and explosive tipped arrow ?
But of course!


5) Will Colonel Trautman feature in this game ?

Absolutely!


6) Will this game focus on young Rambo in the Vietnam War ?, middle aged Rambo (in the 1980s movie) or old Rambo (retired in Burma in the 2008 John Rambo movie) ?

All of the above and far beyond! (except the story from the 2008 film, we do not have the license for that. But we do have First Blood, Rambo, First Blood Part II, and Rambo III and we will be making many of our own stories!

7 Can John Rambo find peace in this game ?

Perhaps after completing the entire game and all scenarios and expansions...but you'll have to play to find out

I can't wait. I have been waiting since the 90's for a good Rambo board game. Gosh, I remember playing the Rambo III Tiger hand held electronic games.

Yes!
I'm getting this game even if I have to sell both my kidneys to pay for it! Awesome!
Does anyone know how it will be released? Through "regular retail" or kickstarter, or... What?

And one more thing - I assume the characters will have knives as equipment. What can I hunt with a knife in the game?

If the game box doesn't include a red headband for players to put on when things are about to get nutty, it will be a missed opportunity.

hello there

yes!

definitely need a bandana stretch goal for the KS campaign.

if you can promote this enough, you should really have a winner on your hands

i think games without the usual fantasy/sci-fi/horror stuff are so refreshing

I backed a KS called Vengeance which attempts to replicate one man army urban vengeance movies like Old Boy, John Wick, Kill Bill etc as was something different

Rambo is also very exciting

good luck with everything!
