Yes, I went there.



LET THE SPECULATION BEGIN!

I'm sure I heard GB2 was going to be another stand alone game or used in conjunction with GBTBG as an expansion.

Gibblets
03-20-2015, 11:20 AM
Yeah I hope it's not a full game but just an expansion, allowing us to use what with already got, I don't need another set of the 4 ghostbusters for example.

Lots of great things they can introduce from GB2 along with more bits and bobs from the cartoons and toy lines.
Id quite like to see a friendly slimer who may help or hinder your task as he did in the cartoons, and that bathtub slime looks like it could be like those toilet ghosts.

Werechicken
03-20-2015, 11:20 AM
Sure, I mean, let's speculate about the contents of the game.


Obviously GB2 stuff will be all over it:

Slime blower mechanics, Vigo, Scoleri Bros, Jogger Ghost, Jack Hardemayer

But what else?

I'd like Grundel, Extreme GBs, People Busters, Werechicken

I have NO IDEA what we are planning (see where it says marketing coordinator? Yeah...clueless)

BUT. I WILL SAY. We do have a knack for creating games that are expansions AND stand-alone's. DC DBG, Epic Spell Wars...

It's just an option no one has considered. Now I feel like I should go theory craft in front of Mataio and see if I am right!

Scott_Dufficy
03-20-2015, 03:29 PM
Sara is right I have all the DC DBG, they work great separate and together, so I think GB2 would work fanstastic as it's own game but also blend in nicely with the original. I wouldnt mind some new GB figures, especially if at least a couple of them had slime blower sculpts instead of proton packs. Louis will probably show up, he was really the favorite during the campaign but obviously they were probably saving him for this one if they already had GB2 on the horizon. Vigo and Yanosz are givens (Nanny sculpt?!?), and the Scoleri bros w/ courtroom tiles would be perfect. Possessed characters and objects would be a fun new mechanic (slime bathtub?? maybe to go with our ghost toilets, whole bathroom set).

Scott_Dufficy
03-20-2015, 03:30 PM
Maybe even add a negative slime element where slimed GB use actions against each other instead of just losing them.

Starheart
03-20-2015, 04:11 PM
I imagine when they say stand alone expansion it will work like the dc deckbuilding game they also released. I actually have only bought the heroes united version of that game cause it had my boy Shazam. I plan on going back and buying the core game and the rest expansions. However I digress, I can't wait for slime blowers and a Louis Tully with ear muff on and a Spangler jumpsuit. I also would like to see something with the statue of liberty as a mechanic. Maybe something where it starts on one side of the map and we escort it to the other side of the map. Ghost trying to use its slime to stop it and washing away our positively charged slime. Also mink coat ghost that scurrys around.

03-20-2015, 04:28 PM
Lots of possibilities with GB2!

Werechicken
03-20-2015, 07:41 PM
And remember, it opens up more RGB possibilities, We got Sandman, Boogieman and Sam Hain this time.


So you know....werechicken

I'm sure I heard GB2 was going to be another stand alone game or used in conjunction with GBTBG as an expansion.

From Update #35
"We have very high ambitions for the lifespan of Ghostbusters: The Board Game. So much so that we did not want to crowbar a spattering of Ghostbusters characters, equipment, and ghosts into the game just to have them be present.

As we examined how much great material there was to work with from the second film, it became clear to us that the best course of action was to do it justice in a full-blown, standalone (yet compatible!) gaming experience in the near future. New equipment from Ghostbusters 2 would open up new avenues of gameplay: Slime Blowers, the Ecto-1a, the Giga Meter... heck, maybe we’ll even figure out what the Latent Image Sensor does! There are so many awesome characters to draw from: the Titanic passengers, the Scoleri Brothers, Janosz, and, c'mon... Vigo the Carpathian. And, of course, there are tons of new locations in the second film as well. Making it even more exciting is that there is a lot more amazing content still available from The Real Ghostbusters and the incredible comic books! The sequel game will give us the ability to grow and evolve the gameplay being introduced now and allow us to make challenges worthy of players who will be—by then—seasoned Ghostbusting veterans.

It's very important to us that this isn't seen as a “one and done,” but the beginning.

That said, we're not done with revealing really cool stuff for Ghostbusters: The Board Game. Some of it may turn you white!

CZE​"

03-20-2015, 11:44 PM
Statue of Liberty playable character? A bit ridiculous but maybe they could implement her somehow.

BradBosshart
03-21-2015, 11:02 AM
we got a lot of stuff we wanted for this game, and I bet a lot of the runner ups like Subway Ghost will be add ons before the next KS.

Werechicken
03-23-2015, 04:54 AM
Exactly my point, Brad.

Werechicken.

VJAS-Editor
03-23-2015, 02:01 PM
As long as we get Vigo and Janosz we should be fine, but I would like to see the Statue get involved, secondary sculpts for slimepack GB's, GB Louis & boards for the courthouse, slime tunnels, and docks.

Beyond the movie, if we could get the girls from Ron's team (in jumpsuits, not the GhostSmasher uniforms) that would be cool.

Werechicken
03-24-2015, 07:49 AM
I mean, we got so much more than the original movie for this first game, so I really want to see who we can get for the second.

VJAS-Editor
03-24-2015, 08:37 AM
Honestly just from the Real Ghostbusters there is a ton that can be used for the GB2 Expansion/Release.
Pirate Ghosts
Gremlins
Banshee
Janine's Fairy Godmother
Japanese Kaiju ghosts

and that's just 5 possibilities.

Also, and I can't believe I missed this on my earlier post, CZE, please give us John Belushi, Joliet Jake, Ray's spiritual adviser, what ever you want to call him is fine. But that would make an excellent "Game modifier" figure like Peck.

Werechicken
03-24-2015, 09:11 AM
Agreed on everything.

how about the Ecto 2?

VJAS-Editor
03-24-2015, 10:58 AM
I figure the Ecto2 is a given, and if a token instead of a model, we'll have the same stretch goal as this time where one of the first will be replace the token with a model.

The other possibility that is on the table would be the two movies in development. With Feig's set to release Summer next year, it is not inconceivable seeing the GB2 game likely releasing late 2016/2017 that elements from that could already be on the table for inclusion (but it's also just as likely they would be looking at a core movie game expansion over the next few years). If IDW can get comics for the new movies so they can be adapted to the same styles as the current book/game we could have a huge game system in 5 years.
GB: TBG 2015
GB2: TBG (Expansion) 2016 (Focus on Janosz, Vigo & Slime)
GB Reboot: TBG 2017 (Tentative focus on team of Wiig, McCarthy, Jones & McKinnon, new baddies)
Ghost Corp: TBG 2018 (Tentative focus on team of Tatum, Pratt & ???, new baddies)

A lot of options are possible depending on how the forces in motion end up.

Werechicken
03-24-2015, 11:13 AM
If IDW and Crypto are smart, they won't touch the property till it gets closer to the release to judge how it is received. I would also like to remind everyone that contracts haven't been signed and scripts haven't even been finished. Its all speculation till they start shooting.

VJAS-Editor
03-24-2015, 12:36 PM
Very true, until we have scripts to film, film to distribute, butts in seats, and the actual box office to judge nothing is set. Should Feig's movie utterly fail (which I doubt it will) that could torpedo anything at the Ghost Corp offices.

That said we are at a time where the potential for new additions to the property are in the best spot since IDW took over the comics. while nothing is guaranteed at this point, and the game franchise has the ability to expand without new films, the IP is looking a lot better than it did even a year ago.

Werechicken
03-24-2015, 12:42 PM
We did get a new GB comic (mini) coming out, which is good. The TMNT/GB crossover sold VERY well.

VJAS-Editor
03-24-2015, 01:03 PM
Too bad opening up the crossovers for official is such a headache. I'm sure that with Turtle pieces already out there we'll see user crossover rules.

Heck just franchises with afterlife aspects could make for interesting custom games. If only Sony had made Beetlejuice, that could be epic. Too bad the movie didn't do well because Ghostbusters vs. R.I.P.D. could also make for an interesting game.

But I digress because this is derailing the purpose of this thread.

Werechicken
03-24-2015, 01:11 PM
Exactly! I thought a TMNT/GB crossover ONGOING comic would be great, you don't have to have them crossover all the time, just bounce back and forth telling the stories.

RIPD tried to rip a FEW things from GB, but I liked the idea. The comic book is MUCH better.

AND YES! Quit derailing the thread that I made and am ALSO derailing.

So, let's talk Extreme GBs. The Fandom is split here....

VJAS-Editor
03-24-2015, 02:17 PM
Honestly can't say, when Extreme was aired I really wasn't paying attention to North American animated shows so it passed by me without much notice. I knew of it, but wasn't looking for it.

From what I've seen, I have no issue with it and if the other Extreme members were stretch goal items on the next game, i wouldn't be opposed, but I wouldn't be excited either.

Werechicken
03-25-2015, 06:31 AM
Agreed, Kyle was probably the one I wanted the most, as Dan and Chris brought her into the comic very well. The wheelchair guy....it just felt SO forced

ThomasDN
03-25-2015, 09:30 AM
After having read the IDW ongoing series I at least now understand where all those playable characters come from. However, I still feel that there are plenty already, to say the least. I could go along as far as Louis and Dana, but that's it. Any and all further addons, expansions etc. should in my opinion be things you can do with the characters. Scenarios, campaigns, ghosts etc. Just my 25c.

Werechicken
03-25-2015, 09:49 AM
Thomas, that's a valid point. (Also congrats on reading the comics, I love them)

One of the things I mean for GB2 expansion would be Ghosts as well.

Specifically, People Bustersssssssssss

So new scenarios, campaigns, ghosts, and hey, if you want to play as the evil ghost versions of the boys? Sure.

VJAS-Editor
03-25-2015, 10:03 AM
Hey Thomas,

Agree about needing more for the characters to interact with, but I think we will find as games progress that people will ultimately like having different characters if only to add replay ability to games.

Also while the KS backers may be starting with 9 characters to choose from, Retail buyers, by on large, will only have the core 4. For them, they may need future character options.

abrooks
03-25-2015, 01:01 PM
I think a cool idea would be creating Real Ghostbusters sculpts with a similar XP system (ie, Peter always gets slimed).

Gibblets
03-25-2015, 01:17 PM
Louis has to be a new playable Ghostbuster, that's a giving isn't it?
And I wouldn't mind if they finished adding the Busters from Extreme or the comics.. maybe as well complete the set. But I agree there are a LOT or characters which is great for big games than can take them all, or lots of variation for the 4 player version. And as it was pointed the retail version wont have the kickstarter extras. (unless they're sold separately eventually)

I haven't read any of the comics, I've never been much of a comic book fan, despite enjoying comic book movies lol

VJAS-Editor
03-25-2015, 01:26 PM
Seeing Louis suited up in GB2 (even if it wasn't his suit) yes Louis should be a given. Likely as an early level stretch goal.

Werechicken
03-25-2015, 01:50 PM
Abrooks, that's a really good idea, especially with the new Ghostbusters comic crossover with the RGB! (AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER)

ThomasDN

I honestly wouldn't be upset if they sold the other characters on the market, at least for playable characters.

ThomasDN
03-26-2015, 01:05 PM
Oh on the market they can sell whatever individual characters they want. It is only when these made-up fantasy things are made a part of my Ghostbusters game that I oppose. ;)

03-27-2015, 10:07 AM
What I'm really excited about in the current GB game is that it used Movie 1 for it's theme with it's choice of locations, baddies, desgin but it isn't a game of Movie 1.

What I mean is the game doesn't start with you getting kicked out of university and to play the game you have to follow the same narrative as the movie. It also has characters from the VG, comics, cartoons and it's story (Even though it follows the comics.) is open for you to play. CZE have provided the settings and characters to re-enact those movie moments if you wish but it's not limited to them.

I'm hoping for the GB2 expansion will have the exact same approach and have GB2 as its theme. Just as I hope some day we'll get a GB VG theme expansion, Cartoons Theme expansion, Comics Theme expansion; all drawing on locations, scenarios and characters from inside and outside those sources.

Guys what about an expansion with stuff from "Displaced Aggression." Like a big map where the four corners represent the different times and the middle is present day. All the guys could have their custom packs like the steam pack or the proton sword. It could be epic.

Scott_Dufficy
03-27-2015, 04:01 PM
I'd be happy if the GB2 Kickstarter campaigh brought us Tiamat and the terror birds, leading to a scenario where the GB are caught between a sibling rivalry of biblical proportions betweem them and Gozer/Dogs, kind of like the Miser Brothers in Year Without A Santa Claus...well not exactly like that...but you get the idea.

BradBosshart
03-28-2015, 11:06 AM
There is plenty of room to expand, an there will be stuff fro the movies. Remember, if a movie/tv show/cartoon tanks, the characters can still be interesting to play, or add on a play piece like a Super Slammer or something.

Werechicken
03-30-2015, 05:06 PM
Yeah, I mean, obviously, we'll get the GB2 stuff. Personally, I'm hoping for more RGB stuff. And comic book too, of course.

(PRE-ORDER PEOPLE)

Gibblets
04-02-2015, 03:33 PM
Not too fussed with the comic books personally, more interested in the films and cartoon. :P

Werechicken
04-03-2015, 07:58 AM
Well, I think they're really good, Gib, but everyone has different tastes. What are you looking forward to them adding from the films and cartoon?

Skyknight
04-04-2015, 11:47 AM
I never read any of the comic books, because they are not easy to get in Germany. I don't import comics and after seeing the style of the art they used in those I can say I'm not really a fan of that. I wish they'd gone for movie or cartoon likeness with the game.

Werechicken
04-06-2015, 09:00 AM
The comic is a cross between both likenesses.

Skyknight
04-07-2015, 03:46 AM
The comic is a cross between both likenesses.
And that's why they don't look close to either of them. Sure the characters are still recognizable, but it just doesn't look right in my eyes. I don't like this style for the same reasons I prefer older cartoons over more recent ones, I think it looks ugly and oversimplified!
I'd take cartoon Ghostbusters over new comicbook Ghostbusters anyday. I think those looked better and had a lot more details, despite the fact that they're over 25 years old! But that's just my opinion.

The reason I still want to get this game is the gameplay looks fun and there are countless options for add-ons and custom scenarios. And the ghosts from the cartoons are my personal highlight. I really hope they do more of those and don't make them all exclusives, but regular expansions so even ppl without cc can get them without paying overprice on auctions.

sara.miguel
04-07-2015, 10:02 AM
I will say that in regards to movie character likeness, there are likeness rights that actors are granted. This is why we went with the comic book series. Plus, Dan and Erik are great to work with in getting us what we need asap!

I know not everyone will always be happy with the choices we make, but we had to go with what would make the most sense for us. We hope you understand.

Gibblets
04-07-2015, 12:06 PM
So does this Idulnas boss ghost come from the comics?
I dunno anything about this guy, he looks like a meanie.

Skyknight
04-09-2015, 01:41 AM
I just said, I don't really like the comic book style. I would have been a lot happier if you had gone for the old RGB cartoon style in the case that the actors do not want you to use their likeness! Especially since you have a lot cartoon style looking ghosts in it and that would've made for a more unified overall picture, if that makes any sense to you.

I don't know Dan and Erik but I believe they're good guys, because everyone I ever met that had something to do with Ghostbusters was! I'm just not a fan of their art! Different people, different tastes, right?

But I still do think it's a great game and I can get past the visual outlook for the fun gameplay I've seen in the testplay videos.

To each their own. They will probably put the RGB in the next one or an update. They are doing a limited run in the comics with the RGB.

Anyone have those Haunted Humans? they were a bit silly, wonder if they would make a nice addition to the game.. perhaps becoming Haunted when possessed by a ghost?

Werechicken

07-18-2015, 09:55 PM

Starheart
07-19-2015, 09:31 AM
Also to point out something else about the TMNT/Ghostbuster crossover event. This means that in cannon they exist together. In the upcoming months, TMNT will also crossover with Batman due to inter dimensional travel. So in theory Batman could visit the Turtles and visit the Ghostbusters. Bat-traps, Bat-Meter and Bat-pack could one day exist!

So, you just want different photos?

I feel like if you're gonna change the photos, change the card stats.

babel2uk
11-09-2015, 03:30 AM
I'd quite like to see some "Experimental Equipment" upgrade cards. That'd be a way of bringing in slime blowers, slime tethers, and some of the other cool stuff without having to include it in a new edition of the rulebook, and if all the applicable rules were on the card it would make it a lot more expandable. Maybe allow 1 upgrade per character on levels 2, 4 and 5, with the Rookie from the Kickstarter being allowed them at 1, 2 and 3 to represent him being the guinea pig. Obviously there would have to be a fair amount of testing around game balance.

Something I quite liked from Flying Frog's Invasion from Outer Space game (apart from the unicycling bear in a tutu - seriously who doesn't love the image of an angry bear unicycling its way into a pack of aliens, tutu flapping in the breeze?) was some of the environmental stuff, like fire, which spread (or not) semi-randomly in certain circumstances, and crowds, which had to be protected from the bad guys, and which also moved semi-randomly. It might be cool to have some things like that in an expansion.

Werechicken

Well, as long as they don't give us Vigo and Scoleri Brothers but make the museum/courtroom floortiles KS exclusives like they did with the Shandor Building and Hotel...

Werechicken
11-30-2015, 07:47 AM
Whats wrong with exclusives?

Skyknight
12-01-2015, 05:17 AM
Nothing, per se! I just feel that exclusives should not be things that affect gameplay. Like new player characters, new bossmonsters, new floortiles, standard ghostpacks and new ghost types. Those things have to come as expansions.
Exclusives should only be things that players don't need to enjoy the full expierience, like color variant bosses(Glow in the Dark Slimer, impossible mode bosses, maybe even IM of the new bosses) or ghosts, characters and bosses with a different sculpt(IM StayPuft, hero characters in different poses, etc)!

Like when they gave us Slimer in the base game but made the hotel floortiles exclusives. WTF? Those have to go together, no matter what!
If they pull the same thing with Vigo and the museum tiles or the Scoleris and courtroom tiles, I'm gonna be truely disappointed!

Werechicken
12-01-2015, 10:24 AM
In my experience, a lot of exclusives affect gameplay.

I understand your concern, I just think a part of the kickstarter's success was the chance for exclusives. I doubt it will be the end of them.

Skyknight
12-02-2015, 04:32 AM
They do, but they should not. All things that do should be made available for everyone.
I also think there were too many exclusives on this one, like more exclusives than actual content.
And that'll break the games neck in retail, sitting on the shelfes and gathering dust.

Hell, even the additional packs of the standard ghosts are exclusive, so they can't bring them into retail stores, and this is where I think they made a big mistake. It simply doesn't make any sense! If we can't even buy those at the local gaming store if we need more of them or replacements then what do they expect us to do? Buy more base games? I love CZE for bringing us this cool game, but that decision makes it hard not to think they failed business school!

Well, I hope they really learned from this experience and don't repeat the same mistakes on a possible GB2 expansion!

Oh, I see your point. It affects the retail purchase. That's a fair point.

Perhaps they have even more expansion packs to release in store? (I doubt it)

I got the basic kickstarter version of the game with bonus characters and ghosts, but I gotta say I'm bummed that I don't actually have any scenarios to make use of the new ghosts. The new characters seem great and really expand the game in, I think, a pretty great way. Seems like such a bummer if kickstarter is the only way to get them.

Would love to see scenario cards come out even by themselves. I think they need to look at haw Flashpoint rolled out that was a big expansion driven game would love to see gb2 and even ghee or 2016 get bout out to use like that.

Museum tiles, exteriors surrounded by a giant jello mold! Also, would be great to get a 100mm Libby that you can enter and move like the Ecto. Could use her to battle the big ghosties.

And though it's obscure, outside of the canon, and most likely outside of the IP agreements, I would get a kick out of seeing the filmation Ghostbusters characters. I loved their cameo as alternate-dimension GBs in the comics.

It's no longer speculation!

It's happening!


Sony and Cryptozoic Team up for Second Ghostbusters Board Game
Sony and Cryptozoic Announce Upcoming Kickstarter Campaign for Ghostbusters II: The Board Game

Lake Forest, CA – March 11, 2016 – Guess who’s coming to save the world again? Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games and collectible cards, and Sony Pictures Consumer Products are proud to announce the upcoming April launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Ghostbusters: The Board Game II!

Following on the heels of last year’s successful Kickstarter campaign and retail release of Ghostbusters: The Board Game, the second game in the series ups the ante with lots of new game elements, including Slime Blower Pack Ghostbusters, Ooze entities that can split apart and join back together, allies, new equipment like Ecto Goggles and Portal Destabilizers, and much more!

The game features an original story by Ghostbusters comics writer Erik Burnham that has the Ghostbusters investigating mood slime that has flooded the city, creating earthquakes and riots in another attempt to bring Vigo and his minions back. In line with the story, the map tiles in the game depict buildings destroyed by earthquakes and fires, as well as collapsed streets that expose sewers infested with slime, tunnels with derailed subway cars, and ghost trains. The impressive new figures are based on designs by Ghostbusters comic book artist Dan Schoening.

The Ghostbusters are back for more! Keep an eye out for the April launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Ghostbusters: The Board Game II!

New equipment!

New allies!

Ghost Trains!

I'll go first.

This isn't even GB2 related....but.

The Mrs. Roger's House.

What if the whole board was something you had to bust? The tiles themselves? Things you'd have to maneuver, etc.

Also opens the door for more possibilities from the comics. Tiamat was the big bad that ended the previous ongoing series (Before International started); she seems Gameworthy to me. I'd also love to see the Happy Horror Days related spirits as an add-on or a stretch goal.

Seriously, though.

We know some of the basics we're getting, right? Everybody knows we'll get Vigo.

Will they waste 4 sculpts on the original 4 GBs, but with Slime blowers? It'd be easier to just give them the "equipment", which seems to be what they're going to do with the Ecto Goggles.

Do we really need ANOTHER slimer?

Who from the cartoon do we still need?

Besides the obvious (Werechicken)
-we all know I'm bias here

Peoplebusters (man, why did they never make action figures?)
-this could work with the slime mechanic, they can capture us!

Any other action figures?
