Kickstarter campaign for new Evil Dead 2 board game is certified groovy

To finally correct a grave injustice in the world, the horrorphiles at Space Goat Productions are creating a survival horror board game based on Sam Raimi's cult classic Evil Dead 2.  Word leaked out last week of the gaming company trying to establish a crowdfunding effort to get it made, and now comes the official Kickstarter campaign video and synopsis.  With the original pledge goal of $70,000 already reached and backers pledging $108,000 as of today, it looks like we'll be visiting Henrietta in the fruit cellar before too long!

Here's the announcement from Space Goat:

Evil Dead 2: The Board Game is a tile and miniature based survival horror game for 2-6 Players based on the classic movie. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

The campaign offers a standard and deluxe edition for donors to select from. The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead. More figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, a well as retailer pledge levels. Six lucky fans will also get a chance to get their likeness drawn into either the game or a future Evil Dead 2 comic book.

Add your pennies at their campaign site HERE, then have a peek at their pitch video below and tell us if you're dying to play this game!
