Green Hell: The Board Game – Kickstarter launch trailer


Green Hell: The Board Game is a cooperative survival game. Jake, known to all fans of the video version, is stranded in the Amazon forest searching for his lost wife, trying to survive in this harsh, and unwelcoming environment. The players are all members of a Search & Rescue team sent with the sole task of locating and retrieving him. Each member has a particular set of skills that will prove necessary to the whole party’s fate. Survival Expert, Medic, Guide, and the Scientist – only well-coordinated cooperation will allow them to complete the mission successfully.


Green Hell: The Board Game, created by Galaktus Games, offers players a high level of gameplay unpredictability thanks to its innovative system of ever-expanding jungle creation based on a modular, semi-random map setup. The jungle and its challenges awaiting the Rescue Party will randomly change every time you play the game with your friends, making each playthrough a unique experience. The team behind the project has put their best efforts to translate the core mechanics from the Green Hell video game, such as backpack management, crafting, and building, to the board game format. This helps achieve a similar, complex survival experience that is instantly recognizable to all the fans of the original title.


The game consists of 4 player cards and boards, over 100 cards that are elements of the map, 154 polyomino tiles needed to craft necessary items, over 230 other cards and tokens, as well as 14 dice and dice roller. The Core Pledge is priced at 99€, but it can be expanded with add-ons such as a unique creepy tree dice roller or inserts to organize game elements.


Are you not familiar with the Green Hell video game? Created by Creepy Jar, the team of industry veterans, Green Hell is an ultra-realistic survival simulation game set in the Amazonian forest. You take on the role of Jake, who is stranded in the wilderness, and searching for his lost wife. The game was greatly praised for its relentless difficulty, real-life accuracy, and complex system of intricate gameplay mechanics.
