The board game features 1 to 4 Hunters who must explore Yharnam and fight their way through beasts, monsters, and crazy townsfolk to find out why the world’s gone mad. There are 28 Monsters figures that feature some of the game’s favourite bad guys and bosses. The Bloodborne board game will also feature Chalice Dungeons which provide random mini-challenges, with more details to be revealed as the Kickstarted campaign progresses.
As we progress through the campaign, we will delve deep into the Chalice Dungeons: a new way to play. Moving from the campaign focus of the core box to single-session plays focusing on slaying enemies, upgrading your hunter, and slaying unique bosses.
The figures are really cool, with some of the classic characters and bosses awesomely scaled down into beautifully crafted board game pieces that fans of the franchise will freak out about.
There are 20 tiles, 1 mainboard, 4 Hunter dashboards, more than 60 upgrade cards, 30 consumable item cards, more than 100 chapter cards, enemy cards, 4 counter bases, and more than 40 tokens.
There are still 18 days left on the Kickstarter campaign, with pledging starting at $100. Currently, the campaign has close to 19 000 backers
