‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Getting an Old-School Board Game for 30th Anniversary

Pretty cool news for fans of John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China. And, really, who isn’t a fan of the adventures of Jack Burton?

Big Trouble in Little China The Game is coming from Boom Studios. And no, kids, not a video game. This is an actual game you’ll play on your table top with people in your life. It will have miniature figures for six characters. Here’s Boom Studios report, via i09:

“[P]lay as Jack Burton or one of his brave friends on the mysterious quest to rescue the green-eyed beauty, defeat Lo Pan’s ancient magic, and save Chinatown from his evil minions. Players will venture through the iconic locations in Chinatown saving the helpless and thwarting evil plans, all the while discovering weapons and rare magics to use to their benefit.”

There aren’t any images yet, or a release date, but it should be out close to the 30th anniversary of John Carpenter’s cult classic.
