The Boys: This ist going to hurt läuft bis zum 25. Dezember als Crowdfunding via Kickstarter. Das Brettspiel basiert dabei auf der gleichnamigen Erfolgsserie von Dynamite Entertainment. Zwar ist der auch als Miniaturen-Spiel laufende Titel bereits finanziert, entpuppt sich jedoch nicht als der Magnet, den man angesichts der Vorlage vielleicht hätte erwarten können.
41.000Frist Games wanted to collect at least 1 euros with the crowdfunding campaign for the board game The Boys. The makers did that a long time ago. Nevertheless, one would have expected the fans of the original series or other interested parties to be more involved in the "swarm financing" of this licensed title.
The Boys board game is competitive title
The Boys: This is going to hurt is a competitive board game for two to five players who take on the roles of CIA agents. Your task: destroy Homelander, whoever manages it first wins.
The board game is based on the successful series The Boys by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, in which Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd, Lord of the Rings) plays one of the leading roles. With the Kickstarter campaign, publisher 1Frist Games celebrates its debut, which emerged as a subsidiary of the comic publisher Frist Comics. The The Boys board game can be supported as part of the campaign either as a title with standees or miniatures, of course with a price surcharge, which in this case is around 33 euros. If the standard pledge is the equivalent of 50 euros, players have to invest 83 euros for the deluxe version including miniatures, the discounted early bird version is already sold out.
Players have to recruit an army, a variety of different characters and items are available, based on the black humor style of the series template.
Overall, it is difficult to deal with the stretch goals: Two additional character cards have been activated so far, the next stretch goal is 75.000 US dollars. Overall, 1Frist Games has set bonus content up to a funding amount of 150.000 US dollars, but with the option to add further content, should the last stretch goal be cracked. It doesn't look like it at the moment.
The The Boys: This is going to hurt campaign started on November 24th and was successfully funded on November 27th. At this point in time, the necessary 41.248 euros had been reached. In the following week, the project was only able to generate around 15.000 euros. The project achieved its first stretch goal on December 51.550nd, which cost the equivalent of 2 euros.

Side note: 1Frist Games did not use video marketing via a YouTuber in the campaign and instead made two of its own videos as part of the campaign Kickstarterproject published. This may have an impact on the course of the campaign and could illustrate how much potential backers can be influenced by targeted advertising measures.
