Big Trouble in Little China board game on the way

I love board games and tabletop games. Especially weird licensed ones. For instance, I just played a DARK SOULS and BLOODBORNE game recently, and both were pretty fun (the DARK SOULS one was a bit complicated). Anyway, this brings us up to the Kickstarter-funded BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA board game. Which doesn't seem that strange, honestly. Jack Burton and friends' journey was like a dungeon crawl in HERO'S QUEST or something in the film already, so I can definitely see it being simlar like that for sure.

Anyway here's a trailer, so let's check it out shall we:

And here's how you play the game, via the official website:

In Big Trouble in Little China the Game you'll embark on a wild adventure to experience the exotic and mystical underworld of Chinatown. You and up to 3 other players (1-6 in Deluxe) take on the roles of their favorite iconic heroes from the film like Jack, Gracie, Egg, and the rest of the gang.

Each character uses their unique talents and abilities to take on various missions throughout Little China. You'll work together gaining chi and audacity to level up in preparation for the Final Showdown to take down Lo Pan, the Three Storms, and a slew of other powerful henchmen, in this cooperative, replayable, cinematic experience.

On the front side of the board, you'll use player actions powered by the thematic dice rolled each round representing your hero's mind, body and spirit devoted to the task at hand. Using these action dice, you will move around the board venturing through the iconic locations in Chinatown, you'll complete task actions saving the helpless and thwarting evil plans, all the while discovering weapons and rare magics to use to your benefit. When you complete quests you'll gain chi and audacity helping the heroes level up, powering them up for the big final fight with Lo Pan. 

You've got to hurry because the clock’s ticking as Lo Pan inches closer to breaking the curse and regaining his mortal form. When all of the quests are complete, or the Big Trouble Track fills up, the heroes are immediately thrown into a Final Showdown with Lo Pan and his most elite bodyguards.

Honestly this all sounds pretty fun (if a bit complicated). I'd definitely give it a shot for sure. But what about you Schmoes? Any other fans of board games? And if so, how do you feel about this one? Either way, sound off below!

Meanwhile, you can pre-order the game right now!

Extra Tidbit: My favorite board game right now is probably Settlers of Catan at the moment.
