Prospero Hall and Funko Games have successfully kickstarted “Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar” board game. This is the first major film licensed legacy game, and will be based in the Jurassic World universe.
In this cooperative game, 4 players try to build a safe and successful park on the island of Nublar. Literally starting with a blank island and building it up from there. Over the course of 12 modules known as adventures,’ players make decisions on what to do with their park. But they have to live with the consequences of those decisions. The first and final adventures are also re-playable. Prospero Hall even points out that players will not be able to unlock everything on their first play through. That coupled with the fact you’ll have 21 playable characters by game’s end, gives this seemingly endless replay value.
Not only are players looking to build a park but they are also tasked with creating the most exciting dinosaur. The catch is, the cooler the dinosaur, the more volatile it is. There are 12 dinosaurs in all including a T. Rex, Triceratops, Velociraptor, and Brachiosaurus. The rest are not disclosed at this time. Each dinosaur sculpture is based on an iconic scene from one of the movies. For example the T. Rex figure is breaking through the paddock.
Recreating these scenes also makes the dinosaur figures larger, and easier to paint for those that are so inclined. Every single figure and item is based off something in one of the films. Because while the game wants to remind you it is completely based on the Jurassic World framework, players are very much telling their own story.
As of the time of this writing, the “Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar” campaign have raised $256,769 of their $100,000 goal with 18 days left.
