Scream of Joy: Plants vs Zombies Boardgame

It's my birthday in two weeks. This should be out for that otherwise IT'S NOT FAIR

I’m very, very disappointed in all of you. This news broke yesterday and NOBODY TOLD ME.

Spotted at Toyfair by Kotaku was… was… I can barely say it. It’s just too beautiful to be true. Was…

Was a Plants vs Zombies boardgame. At last, the divided PC/boardgames mind of RPS is united.

It’s only at prototype stage for now, which means we have to wait until whatever on Earth a ‘Fall’ is this year. I’m going to predict we’ll see it in Autumn.

Two-to-four players, with multiple boards, dozens of cards and a general ongoing tussle between the titular chlorophyll- and rot-based factions. I.e. it’s making the game truly competitive, and hopefully co-operate too.

It’s from a firm called Screenlife, and there isn’t too much info available as yet. You can at least find a little more detail, including the rough structure of how it plays, here. Mashable, meanwhile, reckons it’ll be $20.

Disappointingly, it won’t come with any miniatures. Oh well. I remain 100% grateful.

Perhaps this a herald of more videogame-based boardgames. This is, of course, your opportunity to present your pitches below.
