Rambo the board Game

Rambo: The Board Game is a thematic, cooperative, tactical, miniatures, scenario-based campaign game that allows 1-4 players to experience the events they remember from the film as well as embark on new, never-before-seen missions based on the events from the films Rambo: First Blood Part 2 and Rambo 3.

The game provides a spiral-bound mission scenario book. Each mission tells a story and takes the players on a unique adventure to various locations to save POWs, raid jungle encampments, survive a treacherous jungle, battle on boats, and more! Missions unlock new gear and tactics cards to help players customize their experience and allow for high replayability and great tactical strategy. Taking actions and engaging in combat is done without random dice, but with a card-based tactical system in which the player is in control and where every choice can be life or death!

Players choose from iconic characters each with highly detailed miniatures such as John Rambo, Col. Trautman, Co Bao, and all new characters created for the game! Each hero has unique abilities and customization options as well! You control how to approach the mission: Do you go in guns blazing? Or do you take a more stealthy approach? Perhaps you set a trap for the enemy? It’s up to you to decide and lead Rambo and his team to victory in Rambo: The Board Game!

The year is 1981, and you’re John Rambo, just returned home from Vietnam to a country you don’t recognize. You have no friends and no place to live. You wander into the wrong town just looking for something to eat… and now you’re fighting for your life!

On your turn you’ll choose a stance from your character sheet which gives you your actions, movement, and any other special abilities. You’ll also be able to use unique gear and tactics cards to help you on your journey. This game is fully dice-less, so it’s all about the narrative story and your tactical choices in this “Choose your own adventure-like game”

A highly thematic, story-filled, tactical game where the fate of Rambo lies in your hands. Remember, one thing if you play this game… a good supply of body bags!
Nothing is over! Nothing!

(1) An unforeseen delay

You are smugglers in the Outer Rim, facing danger and the unexpected every day. Today, while transporting expensive cargo belonging to Jabba the Hutt, you are intercepted by an Imperial Star Destroyer!

Imperial operatives impound your ship and confiscate everything in your cargo bay. You know it is only a matter of time before they take a close look and discover Jabba‘s hidden illegal goods. There‘s no time to waste. You need to break out of your cell, rescue your astromech and get hold off the cargo. Then all you need to do is recover your ship and escape!

Your objective: Escape with your astromech (co- pilot droid) and the cargo.

(2) Escape from Hoth

Echo Base, an important Rebel stronghold, has managed to remain hidden on the ice planet Hoth for some time. The hostile climate provides excellent cover and protection from the Empire- but you must always remain vigilant!

You head out on a routine patrol with your trusty tauntaun mount, a hearty creature native to Hoth. After an uneventful morning, you take a brief break to rest your tauntaun while you contact Echo Base with an update. However, due to heavy atmospheric disturbance, you can‘t reach them.

Your mission: Continue your patrol, explore the ice planet, and contact Echo Base!

(3) Secret mission on Jedha

You are an Imperial spy sent to infiltrate the Holy City of Jedha. An Imperial pilot transporting a crate of priceless kyber crystals crashed their Zeta- class cargo shuttle on the surface. You must retrieve the crate without alerting the Rebel scum Saw Gerrera or any of his lawless mercenaries on Jedha. There is an Imperial informant waiting for you on the surface with more details. Meanwhile, Imperial Command orbits Jedha in a Star Destroyer. They are within communications range and expect regular updates.

Your mission: Gather intel, maintain your cover story, and recover the kyber crystals!

Players roll dice and work together to save the multiverse, starting with one of four starting heroes — Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, or Batman — and recruiting allies such as Harley Quinn, The Flash, and Cyborg, whose skills can complete objectives or help recover what is lost to darkness. Take out villainous versions of Batman such as The Merciless, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, and more before facing off with the psychotic Joker-ized antagonist himself, who’s represented by a custom-sculpted, full-color figure who commands a fistful of chained Evil Robins!
