‘The Boys’ Get Board With New Game On Kickstarter

by James Ferguson

With a top notch comic and a hit TV show, what other mediums can The Boys tackle? 1First Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund The Boys: This is Going to Hurt, a tabletop game allowing you and your friends to save the world from The Homelander and each other.

The game allows players to take on the role of newly activated CIA agents, unfairly tasked with saving the planet from the greatest threat it has ever known: the most powerful and dangerous super hero on the planet, The Homelander. Players will try to stop him by building an army from almost every character found in the comics by buying, blackmailing, battling, powering up with Compound-V, and using an assortment of unique items from the comics.

“I’m delighted that so many of you have enjoyed The Boys comic series, and the new spinoff series, Dear Becky, that’s running right now.” says co-creator Garth Ennis. “Very keen on seeing The Boys board game, which seems to me the next big step for The Boys to take. Looking forward to it.”

The Boys: This is Going to Hurt is the fully-licensed debut game from 1First Games, the sister company to 1First Publishing.

Fans will get a chance to play the game online before the Kickstarter campaign ends through the 1First Games Facebook group. The campaign has a limited amount of early bird pledge tiers and a variety of exclusive collectibles available. It runs through December 24th, 2020. At the time of this writing, it is about 90% of the way to its funding goal.
