– Play as Jack Burton or one of his brave friends on the mysterious quest to rescue the green-eyed beauty, defeat Lo Pan’s ancient magic, and save Chinatown from his evil minions.
– Up to six players will venture through the iconic locations in Chinatown saving the helpless and thwarting evil plans, all the while discovering weapons and rare magics to use to their benefit.
Speaking about the announcement, Everything Epic games publishing company President and Lead Game Designer Chris Batarlis said “Teaming up with an outstanding studio like BOOM! helps us bring enthusiastic lifelong fans of Big Trouble in Little China the gaming experience they’ve been waiting for. Bringing to life a nostalgic and beloved motion picture in a robust tabletop game experience is a dream come true for us and we’re ecstatic to be able to deliver it to gamers, comic book fans, as well as lovers of the film in 2017!”
Flipside Design Studio President and Creative Director Boris Polonsky added “It’s been a passion project that we’ve been dreaming about for some time. We wanted to make sure to do it right and bring an experience that we think the fans deserve. And that’s why we are so excited to partner with BOOM! Studios, because we believe incorporating their great work in keeping the BTiLC brand going is exactly what we needed to make this game right. We share a love for this franchise and look forward to putting out a truly special game that old and new fans will embrace.”
And finally, BOOM!

This year, just in time for the 30th Anniversary, we added The Official Making of Big Trouble in Little China, The Official Art of Big Trouble in Little China, a crossover with Escape from New York, and an illustrated novel—Big Trouble in Mother Russia—to the mix. The opportunity to continue expand the world of Big Trouble in Little China and dive into the exciting world of board games with superb partners like Everything Epic and Flipside is pure icing on the cake!”
