Silly Kid Games LLC of Atlanata, Ga,. has announced the release of “The Warriors: Turf War”, a board game based on Paramount Pictures’ 1979 cult classic film The Warriors, which holds the number 16 spot on Entertainment Weekly magazine’s “Top 50 Cult Movies” list, is now live on Kickstarter: The Warriors: Turf War Kickstarter
In The Warriors: Turf War, players assume control of their chosen gangs and defend their home turf, battling for control of New York City as they try to avoid the police and enact other story-driven scenarios generated by the game. Each gang will have its own unique characteristics based on the characters from the movie.
“I’ve seen The Warriors countless times and am excited to collaborate with Paramount to create a game based on the movie,” said Silly Kid Games CCO Justin Powell. “If there’s any movie that lends itself to a tabletop game, it’s The Warriors!”
Considered an American cult classic, The Warriors is about a New York City gang framed for killing a rival gang leader. The shooting spurs a violent turf war, during which members of a Coney Island-based gang called The Warriors must fight their way back to their home territory.
“The Warriors provides a deep universe that lends itself well to tabletop games and I’m thrilled to explore elements and areas not depicted in the movie,” said Daniel Lees, lead game designer with Silly Kid Games. – PRNewswire
