Mondo Games Announce New Board Game ‘Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene’!

With the massive influx of games available for iPhones and Androids that have flooded the market in the past few years, new board games seem to be coming few and far between. But, Jurassic fans are in luck: as reported by Cinapse on Twitter, Mondo Games has just announced the upcoming release of a new Jurassic Park board game!

The game was announced at MondoCon 2017 in Austin, Texas, on November 4th. Titled Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene, it looks to be an officially licensed Jurassic Park product, joining the ranks of Mondo’s previous Jurassic Park releases.

Mondo is known for its screen-printed posters and artwork of cult classic and contemporary films and TV shows, as well as its toys and vinyl film soundtracks. They also run popular film blog Birth.Movies.Death. in conjunction with Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas.

From the photos released by Cinapse, we can tell that the game is going to be a four-player, asymmetrical board game – meaning simply that different players in the game will have significantly different capabilities, resulting in a unique gameplay experience. (For example, in the card game Raptor, one player is a mother raptor trying to protect her young, while the other is a scientist trying to capture the babies.)

In addition, we know that Mondo Games’s Luke Byers is the head of design for the game, along with Joe van Wetering, Joe Wiesch, Jay Shaw, and Matthew Woodson, with Woodson functioning as the game’s illustrator.

According to Eric Vespe, the playable characters are include InGen, Park Guests, and a pack of three Velociraptors. At the moment, no design or plot-related information about the game has been released outside the MondoCon panel, but we will be sure to update as it is released.

Finally, while not related to the upcoming board game, Mondo has announced a few other future Jurassic Park items. These range from a Tyrannosaurus and hatching baby raptor tiki mug set, or the upcoming T.rex and Velociraptor ‘Mondoids’. To learn more about these, be sure to hit up Cinapse who covered the panel where they were announced.

Currently, the studio also produces officially licensed collectibles for DC Comics, Star Wars, and Marvel Comics, geared towards “fans passionate about their favorite pop culture characters and the hobby of collecting”.

The studio is working closely with Universal Pictures to create a exciting presentation that will do justice to the legacy of the franchise.

While the first items to be released will be from the original film, the studio is open to producing collectibles from other Jurassic Park films – including Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom – in the future. No word yet on what characters will be featured in this first release, but since Iron Studios primarily produces human figures, perhaps fans can expect to see something of the original trio from the first film.

Iron Studios wants you to know they are huge fans of the Jurassic Park franchise, and are investing a lot of time and effort in the project to make the best products possible for fans. More information on the collection will be released on the studio’s Facebook page in the coming weeks as CCXP rolls around.
