In Headscratching Move, IDW Decides To Not Kickstart New Licensed Board Game

Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham Under Siege is the first in a line of tabletop games based on the cartoon.

If IDW is known for anything, it’s licensed comics and Kickstarting board games. That’s why the world was baffled with the company’s most recent announcement for Batman: The Animated Series - Gotham Under Siege. The board game will see a standard release as opposed to being put on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Maybe it just comes down to the fact that Batman is a safer bet than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The Outhouse reached out to the National Board Game Coalition Commission (NBGCC) President Thurston Thurstonson III for an EXXXCLUSIVE statment. "All of us at the NBGCC were flabbergasted when we heard this news. We're used to going to Kickstarter to support IDW's board games, but now we're going to have to go to our local game store to buy this game. I don't even know where that is."

Batman: The Animated Series - Gotham Under Siege sees 1-5 players take on the role of Batman and his Bat-family to take down the full range of Bat-villains. Designed by Richard Launius and Michael Guigliano, the game features all new artwork, character miniatures, 3D city buildings, and other board game elements, which is fitting as it's a board game.

Batman: The Animated Series - Gotham Under Siege is set to release August 2018.
