IDW Games have announced that they are teaming up with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products to create a range of games bringing Planet Of The Apes to the tabletop, kicking off with a board game based on the original classic movie.

Planet of the Apes

The game has been designed by Richard Launias, the creator of Arkham Horror, and sees four players working together to survive in this game of deadly psychological horror. The twist; you are each a different aspect of Colonel George Taylor’s psyche.

The original Planet of the Apes is favourite Sci-Fi film for many people and it is good to see it getting some attention, alongside its modern franchise instalments. The game itself sounds intriguing and I really want to see how it works on the tabletop.

Will you go ape for this board game?
