Did you miss out on last year’s wildly successful
Kickstarter for the board game adaptation of Deadly Premonition? Now’s your second chance.
Rising Star Games tabletop adaptation of the cult-classic
video game reached its funding goal in just
eight hours last year, and shipped out to backers last month. However, a limited
retail release was also planned, and you can pre-order
a copy on Amazon right now. This deluxe edition of the game will set you
back $60, and comes with a few bonuses including a cloth mat, custom dice, and the
original soundtrack of the video game to play during tabletop sessions. You’ll
also get a code for Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut on PC.
The Deadly Premonition board game has been generally
well-received, and can be played in 30-45 minutes by 2-4 players. Amazon will
start shipping copies on January 31, so you won’t have to wait. You can find
out more about how the game plays by checking
out the official website.
Investing in any Kickstarter project
is always risky, so it’s nice to see a guaranteed retail option after the
campaign has ended. The $60 price tag puts it on par with the Special Edition
version that was available during the Kickstarter, give or take some of the
bonuses, so if you’re kicking yourself for not investing earlier, it sounds
like a good deal.
