Army of Darkness Tabletop Game Coming

For all you deadite geeks out there, an Army of Darkness tabletop game is being released by Dynamite Entertainment! The game will be miniature-based and have players take on the role of  the iconic S-Mart employee, Ashley Williams. The description for the game states that players will, “take on the role of unlikely hero Ash Williams, the chainsaw-wielding, time traveling S-Mart employee. In this multiplayer game, Ash and his allies will lead an army of medieval knights against a horde of unliving Deadite zombies.” The game is being released by Dynamite Entertainment and if that name sounds familiar, it’s because this is the same company that was behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game as well as the Re-Animator board game. Finally, a way for us deadites to mourn the loss of Ash vs. Evil Dead!
