Samurai Jack is headed back to the past in a new board game.
USAopoly, Adult Swim, and Project Raygun are teaming up for Samurai Jack: Back to the Past, a board game that sets players on the same hero’s journey as the titular hero from the hit, award-winning animated series. Samurai Jack: Back to the Past will be the only hobby game based on the Samurai Jack license.
The game is based on the fifth and final season of Samurai Jack, as the hero continues his quest to return to a time before the evil demon Aku’s reign. Jack is joined by some of his friends and allies as he visits several locations from the series as they battle villains and try to complete the game with the most Honor. Winning requires the use of Allies, Traits, and Weapons while maintaining Jack’s Sanity.
Samurai Jack: Back to the Past includes custom sculpted pieces for Jack, Aku, Ashi, and more characters. The game will retail for $34.95, is playable by 2-5 players, suited for ages 13 and up, and releases this summer.
