December 1, 2021 – A new Stan Lee universe building board game has been announced. Players must harness their creative energy to give birth to a unique universe. The board game title is “Stan Lee’s Genesis.” The game will hit shelves in 2022. The game will be available for pre-order on Kickstarter followed by global retail distribution.
The game is a tile building game in which players each create their own universe using a system of resources that consists of Spark, Energy, Motivation, Conflict, and Empathy. Players build their own terrain, beginning with a nexus tile. As the game progresses players may link their terrain to create a larger board through “crossover” events. Each player continues to build the universe through resources and card assets, creating various elements, including: Heroes, Villains, Teams, Terrain Features and Locations, Plots, and Events.
Every game is different as players both compete and collaborate as they construct a comic book universe full of heroes, villains, super teams, evil syndicates, galactic threats, and all-encompassing crossover events!
“We are honored to team up once again with Rocketship Entertainment to pay homage to Stan’s creativity and ingenuity with a game that challenges fans to follow in Stan’s footsteps in a fun and engaging way,” said POW! Entertainment President Gill Champion.
Due to its incredibly large scope, Stan Lee’s Genesis has been in development for a number of years. It will feature 200 original characters co-created by Rocketship Entertainment Publisher and longtime Stan Lee collaborator Tom Akel and Eisner-nominated artist Ryan Benjamin (Batman, Iron Man).
“Stan Lee’s Genesis puts the power of creation into the hands of the players and honors the legacy of Stan Lee’s brilliance as one of the preeminent creative forces of the 20th and 21st centuries,” said designer and Rocketship Entertainment CEO Tom Akel, whose previous work in the field includes games and apps for Marvel, South Park, The Daily Show, Teen Wolf, and the MTV Video Music Awards.
There have been many amazing superhero board games but the idea of this takes it to another level. There has never been a comic book board game about someone who is behind making comic books. If you are going to do it with anyone, it makes sense to do it based on Stan Lee, one of the most iconic and historic comic book business personalities.
