Jasco Games Looks to Revive Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game
“Here’s Your New Home” – Ash Williams
Jasco Games LLC, a premier board game and card game publisher based in Las Vegas, Nevada, has created an initiative to help the gaming community at large. As most are aware, there was a board game campaign on Kickstarter.com posted by Space Goat Productions promising a thematic board game for Evil Dead 2 fans. The game was funded by 6,143 backers.
Over the last several months, Space Goat Productions has announced that they will not be capable of fulfilling this game to their customers and they have no concrete solution to the problem. After extensive discussion and planning, Jasco Games CEO and Founder, Jason Hawronsky, and Lynnvander Studios CEO, Thomas Gofton, (no affiliation to Space Goat Productions) have come up with a plan to “revive” the game.
“We will be bringing this game back to life, as fitting as that statement is to this property. Jasco’s plan is to raise funds for a new Evil Dead 2 game, and provide a copy of that game to existing backers of the previous campaign” said Jasco Games CEO and Founder, Jason Hawronsky.
Jasco Games has recently entered into an agreement with the owner of Evil Dead 2 to create the new game. While Jasco Games does not have access to the original game created by Space Goat Productions, they do have access to several of the components, which means a completely new game will be created using many of the original elements, all in keeping with Jasco’s high standard of quality and theme.
This will begin with a new Kickstarter campaign. For every game sold on the new Kickstarter campaign, an additional game will be donated to an existing backer of the previous campaign. Jasco Games has acquired the backer and pre-order list from the previous Space Goat Productions campaign to make this possible. Only if the new campaign is successfully funded will Jasco be able to provide games to new buyers and to previous backers.
All the partners involved will be working diligently over the next few quarters to make sure a top quality Evil Dead 2 game gets made and fulfilled to all the backers!
