Greyjoy is coming! That's pretty tempting, but as much as I love ASoIaF, I hate CMoN even more.

After dealing with them when I played Dark Age, where they were not only grossly incompetent in distribution (which seems to be the case with this as well), but had hands down worst customer service I have ever received from a hobby company, I'm pretty hesitant to pick this game up. Which is a shame, because it looks like a ton of fun, and the models are great.

Greyjoy’s would probably be where I bought in to ASOIAF, if I could get hold of anything here in the UK.

The local games shop here in Poole (Dorset) a;ways has a large selection of ASOIAF on the shelves.

If they add $55 worth of game content I might go in for the 2 Zc comics - no interest in the comics themselves. It looks like each comic comes with 8 minis and 2 card sets so $3.43 each for 16 minis

EDIT: $33 - $50 to ship 1 comic and it's stretch goals - I'm out

I've been wanting to find out if they're done by American artists or French teams.

It would be an instant purchase if they got Guiton to actually draw one.

Guess I gotta wait til Kickstarter cooperates...

It’s back again sort of

No Guiton or any of the Guillotine Games crew that I recognise. Seems to be a mix of comic book artists and CMONs own team.

It's working fine now...

So, these are 128+ page 'Hardcover Graphic Novels'.

I suppose that helps justify the cost a little bit...

Artists are listed - no "Guiton" shown, but it does appear to be a European affair.

It's a little different depending on the title from the looks of things.

Zombicide - 8 miniatures and 2 card packs
Zombicide Invader - 7 miniatures and 3 card packs
Death may Die - 6 miniatures and 4 card packs

I am hoping that some of the miniatures are enemies rather than just characters which would explain why Death may die has more card packs (for a new episode).

The books are drawn by established Italian artists, so that's a good sign that it won't be a poorly drawn affair at least.

The Invader book is by the artist of Dragonero which was a pretty enjoyable fantasy comic. Death May Die is by the artist of one of the expanded Sanctum series.
Both of which are available in English if you're curious.

I'm not usually a fan of licensed comics but if they end up with some monsters thrown in there rather than only heroes they may get me to back.

I still would've liked to have see Eduoard Guiton draw one- that's the guy that did all the original Zombicide and Massive Darkness art, Confrontation, AT- 43, Wrath of Kings, Krosmaster, as well as all sorts of other design works.
He did draw actual comics once upon a time.

I would’ve liked that too - his artwork is amazing and would’ve made for a fantastic graphic novel.

They are not using Guiton and it was always the most interesting part of ZC the sci fi versions were really impacted by his absence.

Michael Shinall, CMON's Design and Development Manager, and Developer Leo Almeida, veteran game-makers who have had a hand in designing and developing hit games like Bloodborne: The Board Game, and A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game are taking the designing reigns on Masters of the Universe: The Board Game. They are developing a new game system that will take advantage of the iconic setting and universe as well as bring in many of the setting’s most beloved characters. The game will feature highly-detailed miniature figures of these characters, giving both gamers and collectors a thrill.

When asked about creating a game based on the groundbreaking toy line, Michael Shinall said, “Masters was a part of most of our childhoods. People of a certain age know all about it. Simply saying, ‘I have the Power’ is automatically said in one’s mind a certain way because of it. Now, this game will bring an entirely new generation to Eternia and its many characters. Parents will be able to pass down their love for He-Man to their children, and that’s amazing.”

Since its inception in 1982, Masters of the Universe has been a cultural phenomenon transcending generations and igniting “the power” amongst fans around the world. Now, after more than 30 years, Mattel is bringing Masters of the Universe back and is setting out to create a global evergreen franchise with multiple content access points expanding the story and characters within the vast universe.

“As Mattel looks to unlock the power of its IP, partnering with CMON is the latest step to bring back one of the company’s most famous contributions to pop-culture -- He-Man, Skeletor, and the Power of Grayskull from Masters of the Universe,” said Janet Hsu, Chief Franchise Officer, Mattel. “This new game system will be sure to introduce fans to the most iconic characters through a fresh interpretation of Eternia as it has never been seen before.”

Masters of the Universe: The Board Game will launch on Kickstarter in 2021.

Stay tuned for more exciting information as we approach the launch of the campaign.

Wonder what kind of game it will be? My immediate guess what s some sort of battle game. I’m hoping for more than that though, perhaps something along the lines of a dungeon crawler?
My speculation meter is off the charts.

Pity their license for the board game doesn't extend to Europe though :(

If hasbro ever allows CMON to do a GIJoe game scaled to Zombicide I’m screwed.

Hmmm...MotU could be a good property...would definitely want Skeletor.... But. GIJoe game? Yeah, that would break me.

Ah man, a GI Joe game! That would be awesome. I never really could get into Motu, the aesthetics just aren't for me, but Shinall is the designer of one of the best Wargames I've ever played (Song of Ice and Fire) so it has that going for it.

In for a dollar!

Hope CMON's audit situation is settled by then, as well as fewer outstanding KS.

As a UK type, I'm more attracted to a wishlist Action Force version. That started with a UK toyline from Palitoy and evolved into using repainted versions of the GI Joe toys.

Mass battles of Z Force vs Red Shadows would float my boat for some retro inspired wargaming.

SAS Force could work in a Kill Team type version.

My bad, I suppose - I was going with the same era GI JOE as would be what was shown of The Masters of the Universe in the CMON teaser.

I mean, have you read the latest comics with He-Man in them?!?

They're quite different now too...

The original comics that came with the He-Man toys were actually pretty good. I guess I should check out the new comics then.
