Marvel Zombies board game raises over $9 million on Kickstarter
The upcoming Marvel Zombies Zombicide spinoff board game from CMON, Marvel, and Spin Master Games has raised over $9 million on Kickstarter.
the Marvel Zombies CMON’s board game managed to raise over $9 million on Kickstarter. CMON has released a number of popular IP-based board games in the past, including the Kickstarter-backed Masters of the Universe board game, tabletop games based on The last of us and transmitted by bloodand the God of the war card game, among others.
CMON first announced the Marvel Zombies board game in November last year, with the company teaming up with Marvel and Spin Master Games to develop and produce it. The new game is built for the long haul Zombicide series of table games. It features cooperative play for up to six players and miniatures based on the art of comic book legend Marco Checchetto. CMON has finally revealed what the game and its figurines will look like when the Kickstarter campaign for Marvel Zombies began on January 19, with pledge levels ranging from $130 for the base box only up to $615 for the full set. The campaign was remarkably able to reach its support goal of $500,000 in a single day.
As reported by war player, Marvel Zombies – A Zombicide Game was able to raise over $9 million in its 16-day funding period, with nearly 29,000 people backing the project. The massive success of the game now makes it one of the best-selling Kickstarter board games to date. According to his Starter page, lenders will be able to choose whether or not to obtain the principal Marvel Zombies base box when it retails around October 2022, then get the rest of the set in June 2023 or wait until this latest date to get the full set all at once. Like other tabletop games, like last year’s Rainbow Six Siege board game, the Marvel Zombies The board game set is more than its main base box. There’s also a secondary base box, six expansions, and four bonus hero miniature boxes. Notably, two of the game’s expansions, as well as the four miniature bonus boxes, are Kickstarter exclusives.
CMON has yet to announce when the Secondary Core Set containing the x-men and expansions that aren’t exclusive to Kickstarter will retail, if any, and how much each will cost. It’s possible they’ll be available in stores when they start shipping to Kickstarter backers in June 2023. But even then, the October 2022 and June 2023 dates are still estimates.
Raising the initial funding goal more than 18x is an incredible feat for any Kickstarter campaign, let alone a campaign featuring a board game. Although Kickstarter’s new business model may affect future tabletop campaigns, CMON has a track record of successful campaigns. This means donors should not have to worry about getting their Marvel Zombies together when they are finally published.
