Let’s Talk Board Games!

4th Jul 2023

Dan Mapleston

Hey everyone, Dan here.

Yes, you know us for our range of fantastic, cinematic, streamlined and exciting miniature wargames – but there’s another side to Mantic….we love a great board game.

Let’s talk about a couple of them here, and then we have some extremely cool special offers to share with you…

Hellboy: The Board Game

This game is an absolute beast of a dungeon crawler. Sign up as a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (BPRD) and investigate occult threats, explore gothic locations, hunt down clues, discover artefacts, and fight terrifying creatures and bosses. Sounds like a good time to us!

You can find a video with the design team below:

Every mission in the core game starts by reading a BPRD case file to really set the scene, give you hints about what you may encounter, and immerse you in the story. The Deck of Doom is then on hand to stop things becoming predictable, mess with your best-laid plans, and throw you curve-balls. Encounter Cards generate the contents of each room, and Equipment Cards can be found during each mission.

Like the sound of that? Well, you could get the core game here.

But… you don’t want to do that. Huh – why not?

Because we currently have an even better deal available: get the Core Game and the Box of Doom containing four (yes FOUR) expansions for an extra-special bundle price – now we’re talking!

Find it HERE.


OverDrive is the neon-drenched arena combat game with player drafting, a tug-of-war scoring system, and special moves to unleash. Knowing when to unleash powerful OverDrive abilities will be key to coming out on top. Whatever you do, don’t go down without a fight…

Do you have fond memories of videogames with lots of fun game modes to enjoy with your mates? Well, that’s what OverDrive feels like, and is all about. Gather round the game table and play King of the Hill, Pass the Bomb, Capture the Flag, Killing Streak, Invade and DodgeBrawl…

Here’s a full How To Play video below, and free rules are available HERE.

Sounds like fun! So where can you get it?

Well, you could get the base game right here

But…(here we go again)…if you think this all sounds like awesomely good fun there’s an extra-special bundle this week for OverDrive – coming with extra cards/abilities and three expansions. Nice!

Stock of these bundles is strictly limited, so be quick – you can find it HERE.

And what if you have a 3D printer? Fancy some special exclusive content for OverDrive? A brand new player has just been released as part of our July STL pack: the Mecha-Kaiju. This guy looks like a right monster…and his player card is included in the download files.
