Rising Star Games announced that the Kickstarter campaign for Deadly Premonition: The Board Game has reached its funding goal. What’s great was that it was only up for about eight hours before it surpassed $50,000 in potential funding!

Fans of the cult video game, Deadly Premonition, were all over the Kickstarter page on Tuesday morning. Who could blame them – board games are cool, especially the ones based on the creepy/campy events in DP. This particular board game sees players as detectives trying to figure out who the hidden killer is among them. At the same time, they have to protect the innocent citizens while weeding out the killer’s accomplice. There’s more to it than that of course…


The pledge is setting slightly above $83,000, meaning it has hit several of its stretch goals. This included bonus action cards, new weather conditions and unique artwork for paired cards. The weather bits are interesting given how bad things happen under certain circumstances; the killer will silence one of the suspects every time it rains. What great, murderous fun!
