Clean Up Sunnydale With This Buffy the Vampire Slayer Board Game
On March 10, Buffy the Vampire Slayer turns 20 years old. In celebration of the milestone, a whole slew of themed merch is being released—like this new board game, which lets you and your gang clean up all the baddies and vampires skulking around your cardboard town.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game is for one to six players, so you can gather with all your friends and maybe even your school librarian. The mission takes placed in Sunnydale, which is getting swarmed with vampires and demons. All the players must work together and use action cards to move around the board and defeat the monsters before the town gets overrun. There is also one Big Bad in each game, which the players get to pick at the beginning (you can choose to take down crowd favorites like Caleb, the First Evil, and Mayor Richard Wilkins). Each card comes with special abilities and rules that change the structure of the game in small ways and make the players feel like they're re-experiencing actual episodes of the beloved series.
There are 185 cards in all, including artifacts, evil characters, and event cards. There's also different weapons, garlic, and townie tokens.
To get into the vampire slaying business, pick up the board game for your next night in at ThinkGeek.
