Well, Cryptozoic Entertainment might be a good place to start, as the team has just launched a new Ghostbusters board game on the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter.

Inspired by the films, cartoon, comic books and toylines, Ghostbusters: The Board Game has already secured over $365,000 in funding, thanks to the efforts of 2,485 backers.

An episodic adventure game for one to four players, Ghostbusters: The Board game challenges players to battles ghouls and seal the gates to the spirit world.

It also features unique illustrations and figures based on original artwork by Dan Schoening – the artist behind IDW’s Ghostbusters comic book series.

In its current form, the game arrives with the four heroes: Venkman, Spengler, Stantz and Zeddemore, and three iconic ghouls, Slimer, Idulnas and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

The project – that surpassed its goal of $250,000 in funding in just a matter of days – will be funded on Thursday, March 12th this year.
