Not a huge gamer myself, but I have admit these movie tie in ones look fun if nothing else. It’s amazing to see what Cryptozoic just did with the new “Ghostbusters” game via Kickstater. Raised over $1.5 million in just 30 days. The good folks at IDW played a part in that by leading out Dapper Dan and Erik Burnham to help craft the story, look, and feel of the game.
Godfather is one my favorite films, there is just so many characters and the space they inhabit is so fascinating. I felt EA’s console adaptions did the franchise justice…here’s hoping IDW will do the same deck and dice.
Official Press Release:
San Diego, CA (March 19, 2015) – Today, IDW announced it would release a line of The Godfather tabletop games ranging from quick-to-play card and dice games to big box strategic board games. Paramount Pictures’ The Godfather is widely recognized among the most revered films of all-time.
“The Godfather is more than a movie, it’s an icon,” says IDW’s Director of Business Development, Jerry Bennington. “We plan to give players as many options as possible when it comes to gaming in this rich environment. From quick dice fun to intense big box strategy this will be a line of games truly worthy of the name The Godfather.”
The Godfather game line will start with a card game due out this summer, and continue to branch out from there. The games will range in length and complexity, and take place in a variety of locations and timelines spanning the trilogy of films. Gamers can look forward to rising to power and doing everything they can to stay on top in a cutthroat world. These games will truly be an offer The Godfather fans can’t refuse.
The Godfather Card Game will hit stores August 2015.
