As Prospero Hall prepares to launch its first-ever Kickstarter campaign, the design studio of Funko Games is offering fans a look at what’s inside every seven-pound box of Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar.
The game, which launches on March 22, 2022, will mark Prospero Hall’s introduction to tabletop’s growing Legacy game genre. In their latest behind-the-scenes video, the game’s design team “lifts the lid” to reveal what players can expect to see as they take on new and familiar characters in the epic story of the Jurassic World franchise.
Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar tells the franchise’s story in twelve adventures, each of which have their own components and game guide. As the video reveals, players open the box to find only a handful of the game’s pieces unlocked, including four unboxed dinosaur minis, a beautiful amber D20, six combat dice, a Raptor Claw scratcher, and an oversized 20”x30” game board of Isla Nublar. The rest of the game’s pieces are locked in boxes and adventure module envelopes that get opened during gameplay. As Editorial Manager Ruby Wishnietsky explains, “There is A LOT in the box, it’s heavy.”
Throughout the 12 adventures, players have the chance to unlock up to eight more dinosaurs, and more than 20 characters with unique abilities, knowledge and powers as the campaign advances. Other components include tokens, stickers, item cards and “mini game” boards, plus a sealed “Research Folio.”
Lead Game Designer Dexter Stevens describes the Research Folio as ” like a giant lottery ticket covered with scratch-off stuff that tracks your whole campaign, but also unlocks little treats and surprises.” Players will reach for the Raptor Claw to unveil what’s hiding behind the scratch-offs – another game element that is thematically on point and wildly fun.
Additional details of what comes in the box of Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar can be seen in the video linked above.
