Cryptozoic Entertainment, creators of board and collectible card games, is bringing the world’s most highly respected group of paranormal investigators/exterminators to the table top with Ghostbusters™: The Board Game. The <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cze/ghostbusters-the-board-game" class="postlink">Kickstarter</a> begins today and runs through March 11. The game will begin shipping to backers across North America, the UK and all EU member countries, Australia and New Zealand in October 2015. <br /><br />Ghostbusters™: The Board Game is a game for 1-4 players, ages 15 and up. Players choose one of the four Ghostbusters character figures (Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Ray Stantz) and then select from one of the game’s pre-written scenarios, beginning a game session that lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the chosen scenario(s) and degree of difficulty. Each of the Ghostbusters has unique traits and talents that can assist the entire team, with highly cooperative gameplay. As players gain experience from banishing spirits, the Ghostbusters level up, gaining new abilities that help them take on greater challenges. The team can also hop in the Ecto-1, the Ghostbusters’ converted ambulance, to help them quickly move through the city.<br /><br />Developed by a talented group of board game professionals with decades of combined experience, the team is led by Matt Hyra (Lead Game Design &amp; Acquisitions), Mataio Wilson (Associate Game Designer) and Adam Sblendorio (Creative Director) along with additional developers and support from skilled playtesters and the passionate family of Ghostbusters fans.<br /><br />Ghostbusters™: The Board Game comes with plastic figures of the four Ghostbusters as well as Slimer, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Indulnas and numerous Galloping Ghouls, Gruesome Twosomes and Boogaloo. All figurines are based on the artwork and designs of Dan Schoening, the artist of IDW’s Ghostbusters™ comic book. The game will come with over 40 figures, with the opportunity to purchase add-ons and exclusive figures. The board itself is made of double-sided modular pieces illustrated by Robb Mommaerts, increasing the replayability for scenarios and customization. <br /><br />Cryptozoic will be offering a few options for backers. The base version of Ghostbusters™: The Board Game is available for $80 and includes four Ghostbusters figures, 40 ghost figures, 10 double-sided game board map tiles, instructions and scenarios with art from Dan Schoening, various tokens, cards and dice. The exclusive $125 Deluxe Edition comes with everything from the base game, along with a limited edition foil-stamped box, a 12”x12” giclée print, glow-in-the-dark dice, four additional game board tiles, an exclusive boss ghost figure and an over-sized “Impossible Mode” Stay Puft Marshmallow Man figure. Additional pledge levels add exclusive ghosts, new figures and much more to expand the game further.<br /><br />The Ghostbusters™: The Board Game Kickstarter follows Cryptozoic’s first wildly successful crowdfunding campaign for HEX: Shards of Fate, the MMO Trading Card Game which raised over $2 million from backers eager to take part in the digital trading card / Massively Multiplayer Online game.

Entertainment Weekly also has an <a href="http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/10/08/paul-feig-ghostbusters-female/" class="postlink">interview with the would-be Director</a> where he discusses his vision for a new Ghostbusters movie including rebooting the whole franchise in a completely different universe with female actresses taking the lead. The news also includes the hiring of <span style="font-style: italic">The Heat's</span> writer <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katie_Dippold" class="postlink">Katie Dipplod</a> to work on the script.<br /><br />Fans have been raising their concerns on social media, such as the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/ghostbustersfans" class="postlink">Ghostbusters Fans Facebook page</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/gbfans" class="postlink">Twitter</a>. Before everyone gets up in arms about this movie, everyone needs to remember this important fact. We have been to this point in &quot;Ghostbusters 3&quot; development several times. It was only a few years ago now that Etan Cohen was hired as the writer with Ivan Reitman directing. A few years before that, it was Lee Eisenberg &amp; Gene Stupnitsky. And for a decade before that, Dan Aykroyd was certain he had the best script for a new Ghostbusters movie.<br /><br />Before jumping to rash decisions and making a bunch of ignorant comments, let's consider for a second that this doesn't actually put us any closer to a new Ghostbusters movie than we have been before. It might be fun to think about the idea, or dismiss it entirely, but whatever does come out of it will be a positive change for the Ghostbusters franchise.

The integration of Ghostbusters into The Quest for Stuff highlights Fox and TinyCo’s unique strategy of combining globally renowned franchises into Quahog’s mobile universe.<br /><br />As a part of a themed in-game event set to play out over the next several weeks, Peter accidentally opens a dark portal in the Quahog cemetery and unleashes all manner of ghosts and goblins on the city. With residents spooked and chaos looming, Quahog has no choice but to wonder, “who you gonna call?!” <br /><br />Players will answer the call, helping FAMILY GUY cast members create their own team of Ghostbusters to defeat the unwanted spirits and restore order.<br /><br />The event also introduces a new crafting interface to the game. Defeating ghoulish invaders will reward players with ‘soul points’ and crafting materials, which they can combine in a spooky crafting cauldron to create new characters, buildings and decorations. Through a ‘choose your own adventure’ style gameplay experience, players take divergent paths to reach the ultimate goal of saving Quahog from undead lurkers.&quot;</span><br /><br />Download from iTunes and Google Play: <br /><br /><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.tinyco.com/games/family-guy/">http://www.tinyco.com/games/family-guy/</a><!-- m --> Thu, 02 Oct 2014 19:04:07 +0000 We Love Fine's Womens Ghostbusters Rompers http://www.gbfans.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=38066 2014-09-25T21:35:45-04:00 AJ Quick <iframe width="400" height="255" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/EhrL_K6mq_k?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /><br />It is about time someone made a women's Ghostbusters outfit that doesn't involve booty shorts. <a href="http://www.welovefine.com/" class="postlink">We Love Fine</a> has taken up the task by creating this line of officially licensed Ghostbusters Rompers for women.<br /><br />Check out these and their other licensed products here:<br /><br /><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.welovefine.com/209-ghostbusters">http://www.welovefine.com/209-ghostbusters</a><!-- m --> Thu, 25 Sep 2014 21:35:45 +0000 Beyond the Marquee's Interview with Stephen Dane http://www.gbfans.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=37991 2014-09-18T19:17:28-04:00 AJ Quick <iframe width="400" height="255" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UY-SnTnxvPY?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /><br /><a href="http://beyondthemarquee.com/" class="postlink">Beyond the Marquee</a> is celebrating the release of Ghostbusters 1 &amp; 2 on Blu-ray by hosting a Ghostbusters week.
