Before the wildly entertaining television show The Boys arrived on Amazon Prime Video, it began as a comic book series created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.
Now, 1First Games — sister to 1First Publishing — is releasing their fully-licensed debut tabletop board game inspired by the comic series, The Boys: This is Going to Hurt. In the game, players will take on the role of newly activated CIA agents, unfairly tasked with saving the planet from the greatest threat it has ever known, the most powerful and dangerous superhero of all: The Homelander. In their quest to stop him, players will build an army from almost every character found in the books. Players will have to buy, blackmail, battle, power up with Compound-V, and resourcefully use an assortment of unique items from the comics.
Check out the trailer for the game below.
Fans that are interested in purchasing The Boys: This is Going to Hurt, which is for 2-5 players and recommended for ages 17+, can back the Kickstarter campaign now! Make sure to check out the various pledge options, as there are several deluxe ones currently available (in limited supply). The top pledge option includes a 1First Games variant cover trade paperback copy of The Boys: Dear Becky with a numbered tip-in page signed by both Ennis and Robertson.
The Kickstarter campaign will end on December 24.
