  4. The Thing Outpost 31


    Exciting news came about today!

    Movie merchandise company Mondo has announced today that it is creating a board game based on John Carpenter’s classic 1982 horror film The Thing called Infection at Outpost 31. In the game, players will race to discover who among them has been infected by the movie’s famously monstrous creature.

    Infection at Outpost 31 is the first fruit of a partnership between Mondo and Project Raygun, a new initiative from board game company USAopoly to combine iconic properties with what is being described as “visionary art and design.” Art duties on the game are being handled by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative.

    This was posted today on their website regards the news...

    We're thrilled to announce a new partnership with Project Raygun, USAopoly's brand new initiative focused on combining iconic properties with visionary art and design.

    “The synergy between Mondo and Project Raygun was immediate, both driven by zeal and a deep-rooted appreciation of timeless and relevant pop culture,” explains VP of Project Raygun, Mike Gonzales.

    “When Project Raygun started talking about tapping into fan’s passion and nostalgia for iconic properties and bringing them to life, it was clear that Mondo was the perfect fit to help us deliver the ultimate experience to the gaming and collector community,” continued John Davis, USAopoly and Project Raygun’s President and CEO.

    Our first collaboration will center around John Carpenter’s 1982 sci-fi horror thriller, The Thing. In the new signature board game, titled INFECTION AT OUTPOST 31, the tension and mystery of The Thing is recreated as players race to discover who among them are infected in the hidden identity game play engine. We recruited one of our favorite artists and package designers, Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, to handle art duties.

    “When we set out to create the first licensed Mondo board game the biggest question was; what film property would we go after? So many of the films we celebrate at Mondo would be an absolute blast in game form,” explained Jay Shaw, Mondo Brand Director. “As soon as John Carpenter’s suspense masterpiece, The Thing was mentioned it very quickly became our top choice,” Shaw noted.

    “The next step was to figure out how to actually make a game. We all love playing them, but none of us had designed one before. Game mechanics are an incredibly complicated art form and we didn’t want to enter this space unless we were going to get it right. Luckily our dear friends at Project Raygun were completely up to the challenge. They’ve built an incredibly challenging fast paced game of paranoia that transports players directly into the film,” Shaw continued.

    USAopoly, Inc. and Project Raygun will be at Toy Fair in New York City, February 18-21. The division’s inaugural product line is scheduled for release starting Fall 2017.

    This is definetely one game that Bored? Game! will be keeping tabs on throughout the year, we will keep you posted on anymore developments.
