Remember the old campaign? Space Goats Production, how they walked away with not only Evil Dead 2 campaign, but Terminator, Evil Dead 2 30th Anniversary Book and possibly more? Whelp, that went down the wrong rabbit hole with other companies tried to redeem what these pieces of shits did to us original backers. However, when the thought of Evil Dead 2 Board Game was dead. We were right, but wrong all together. Secretly Jasco Games was able to bring back the game, however there is quite a few changes to the campaign. But if you really think about this move, it’s genesis and really amazing that these people care enough to try and fix what Space Goats didn’t deliver.
So here’s the pros and cons of both campaigns, remember what you’re seeing was done to reduce cost and pay the necessary amount to make this game come to life.
- Original Campaign Had Other Rewards (Besides Base Game)
Jasco Games ONLY offers the game.
- OC Had Add-On’s
JG doesn’t offer the Add-On’s
- OC NEVER Delivered and took ALL of our money.
JG wants to send the new backer and a original backer 1 game for $60. Regular price would have been $80.
People got screwed from this campaign and now this new company is trying to bring it back, with this new campaign from Jasco Games and Team Lynnvander. They want to give new people a game and a game to one of the original backers. No add-ons, just the game itself. Also make sure you have your Backer ID from the this original dumpster fire.

About Jasco Games Reviving the Board Game.
Greetings and welcome to Evil Dead 2 The Board Game, brought to you by the publishers of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Board Game”, “Cowboy Bebop: Board Game Boogie”, “My Hero Academia The Collectible Card Game” and many many more.
Before we get into the nitty gritty of this officially licensed board game campaign, there’s something a little different about this one. A few years ago, another company successfully launched an Evil Dead 2 board game campaign that was never fulfilled to its backers. This other company collected all of the money and delivered nothing to thousands of Evil Dead 2fans that participated in their project. Because of this travesty, Jasco Games, in collaboration with Lynnvander Studios, the Evil Dead 2 licensing group, and our other partners have come together to bring Evil Dead 2 The Board Game back from the dead. We’re calling this campaign a Heartthrob Campaign. What that means is if this campaign successfully funds, all of the backers of the previous campaign (that we had nothing to do with), will be getting a copy of Evil Dead 2 The Board Game for only the cost of shipping (that’s right, free + shipping).
We cannot deliver exactly what previous backers pledged for, as that was not our project, however, we hope that you will all love this game and appreciate what we are trying to do for our beloved gaming community. Our Evil Dead 2 board game is an entirely NEW game designed by Lynnvander Studios and directed and tested heavily by Jasco Games and our play testers. If you were one of many backers of the previous campaign, refer to the section below called “Original Backers” to find answers to some commonly asked questions and to verify that you are on our backer list to receive your copy of Evil Dead 2 The Board Game.
If you are a new backer, we welcome you as well! You will not only be getting a fantastic board game for $59 (An $80 retail value game when it hits stores), that is completely designed, tested and ready to print upon funding of this campaign, you are also helping bring thousands of people a new copy of Evil Dead 2 The Board Game! They really got hurt by the other company and we, as a community, are very proud to have the opportunity to do right by those backers.
If you have already done the math on this, you will see that this Kickstarter campaign was designed to do a good thing. Profit is not the main purpose of the campaign, which is why we are selling the games as close to our production cost as possible while including the free game to original backers into that cost.
So, now that’s explained, let’s take a look at this beautiful board game, shall we?
1. Search For Items
2. Battle Deadites
3. Evil Can Get In You, And Turn You BAD!!!
4. Battle Your Former Friends
5. Seal The Portal (Or Open It)
6. Save The World
You know how it is. You get together with your friends and decide to have a nice weekend in the woods. Maybe head up to the cabin, go for a walk in the woods. No city, no distractions, just some time with your mates and your girl. Groovy!
And then some evil darkness decides to crash your party, possessing people. And before you know it, the dead start rising from the ground, looking for this magic book or perhaps just a tasty snack. The only hope to stop them is to find that book ourselves and seal the portal near the cabin. But be careful, ‘cause the evil can get in you and turn you bad. And evil has its own plan for the portal, wanting to open it up and release Deadites on the world.
It’s down to us to save the world.
