Based on Jim Zub (Rick and Morty VS. Dungeons & Dragons) and Steven Cummings’s (Legends of the Dark Knight, Forager, Wayward) comic book of the same name, IDW Games have announced a Wayward Board Game – Signature Editionboard game through a Kickstarter campaign that’s about to be launched.
At $70 Wayward will be a cooperative board game for 1-5 players where each player takes on the role of a teenager with newfound supernatural abilities.
The next generation of the supernatural has emerged in Tokyo, and these teens are fighting for their survival and to prevent the Weave – the hidden threads of power and destiny that guide our world – from unraveling. These “wayward children” threaten the old order and the creatures and spirits known as the Yokai are determined to eradicate them before they are usurped. Players choose one of five different scenarios to play, each with its own unique rules and challenges, to defeat the Yokai and destroy their places of power.
The game will come with exclusive upgraded packaging, miniatures sculpted by Ninja Division (Super Dungeon), and bonus character with scenario. I dare say we’ll let you know when the Kickstarter is up and running for pre-orders in February 2019. Keep ’em peeled if you’re interested.
