Anyone see that Eric Lang revealed Bloodborne: The Board Game during the Dice Tower panel at GenCon2018? I need more information!

Tried to look this one up and came up with nothing. Can't wait to hear more details about it!

Gotta be better than the Dark Souls game, at the very least.

There is a short interview with Eric on CMoN's twitter about it. Sounds like a co-op dungeon crawler designed with Michael Shinall(!). I'm piqued!

From what I remember from Eric's announcement:

* A fully co-op title
* Structured in a campaign framework
* Players must play through 4 scenarios to complete the campaign
* Players must gain enough Insight to move forward in the campaign. Even if they complete the scenario and kill the boss, the game will still end if they haven't acquired enough Insight.
* Players choose Covenants to provide variable powers.
* As it's a CMON project, expect plenty of minis and stretch goal content
* Project will be up on Kickstarter around Q2-Q3 2019, and will be in retail sometime in 2020.

Oh. Dang.

I mean, I guess it would obviously be a CMON, but for some reason I didn't consider that.

Hrm. Same cover artwork as the card game? come on (cmon)...


That said, I'm a fool for bloodborne, and I do like the card game.
Hope to hear more about this soon...


edit: Yes, it has to be better than dark souls... Man I was burned by that one. I went all in and really didn't like the game. Some wonderful soul bought my pledge thankfully, so I didn't lose too much.

I'm skeptical with them 'bringing new content for fans of the game'. I like the video game as is, hope they don't take some artistic license and try to write their own stories here... Especially coming from the company who is responsible for Fist of Gratia as a ranged weapon in the card game. (I know, I'll never let that one go, I'm an obsessed fan, what can I say).

As for positivity, no body does loads of extra content quite like CMON, and while I tend to avoid that type of campaign, for Bloodborne, I can't wait to see what they come up with. I'm also always impressed with the quality of the components. Excited.. woohoo!

Aaaaaand I'm out. Shame. The card game is so great, if they managed to move this concept to a board game, it'd be an insta-buy for me.

My heart sunk when they revealed the campaign angle (with a focus on covenants) too, but I'm hopeful.

If you're looking for competitive elements, who knows, there might be an invader add-on expansion or something.

I have high hopes, but will remain somewhat skeptical until it's all laid out before us.

For some reason I thought this was kickstarting in January and I've been hoping to see news of the kickstarter pop up any day now.

Doh! My fragile heart..

I'm actually pretty excited about a coop campaign focus (although I've only played BB as an offline solo experience).

I've thought about that initial statement and I think it was in fear of the unknown. A prejudice against campaign games because they seemed to me to be one and done type of affairs. But I've not had much experience in campaign games anyway, so really I'm just worried because I have little experience in what the game is seemingly going to be... but now I've decided to be excited about that instead. If this is going to be my first real campaign game, may as well be based on my favorite video game.
