What has a thousand fins, a million teeth, and comes in a cardboard box?

 

The answer: The SharknadoTM tabletop game… coming to a table near you from yours truly, Devious Devices, I’m not kidding. This is not a joke. This is coming folks!

In Sharknado™: The Board Game!, players work together against the game’s AI mechanic to win a chosen scenario, which can range from killing a certain number of sharks to destroying a Sharknado to simply staying alive as long as you can. The designers’ goal with the scenariobased approach is maximum replayability, and an underlying storytelling element in which players create their own Sharknado experience with each new game.

Game designers Eric Cesare and Anthony Rando acquired the exclusive licensing rights to create a Sharknado-themed tabletop game in late 2015, and since then have been hard at work capturing the spirit of the films—including lots of chainsaws and sharks—in a meaningful yet original way.

“We want this game to feel like the players are in their own Sharknado adventure—separate from the films, but still involving all the things that people have come to love about them,”

The Kickstarter campaign for Sharknado™: The Board Game! will begin on Saturday, August 13 and run for thirty days. The funding goal and pledge levels will be announced on the day of the campaign launch. A retail release for Sharknado™: The Board Game! is tentatively scheduled for late 2016 to early 2017.
