Bill & Ted's Excellent Boardgame Coming Soon from Steve Jackson Games


Steve Jackson Games announced a new game on November 23rd - Bill & Ted's Excellent Boardgame! The game will include 60 cards, 36 tokens, one game board, and a rulesheet. It's priced at $19.95 SRP but there's no release date yet. Steve Jackson Games only lists it as In Production. There's not a lot of information on the game yet but the Press Release does give us an idea of the game play. It looks as if it will follow the movie closely with you having to pass an oral history exam and gathering persons of historical significance so you can create the most excellent future everyone is looking forward to. The official Press Release is listed after the break.

Strange things are afoot in Bill and Ted's Excellent Boardgame, from Steve Jackson Games
AUSTIN, Texas (November 23, 2015) – You are in danger of flunking most-heinously tomorrow!
Travel across the circuits of history with up to four players, collecting personages of historical significance in order to pass tomorrow's oral report. But beware! Every time you snatch someone, the phone booth breaks most non-triumphantly, and your adventure through time will take a most serious turn!
Be excellent to each other . . . and PARTY ON, DUDES!
Steve Jackson Games finds the whole thing bodacious. "Welcome to the future," says Rhea Friesen, the Marketing Director for Steve Jackson Games. Co-designer Randy Scheunemann, stated late Thursday, "No Way!" To which co-designer Samuel Mitschke responded, "Yes Way! It's Bill and Ted's Excellent Boardgame . . . SAN DIMAS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RULES!"

    1. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. This project is pretty tight right now but Len Peralta just posted on Facebook some art he is doing for the game. Len says the game will be released this summer but no specific date yet. It's still a go and we should have it in a few months!
