The Next CMON Board Game Kickstarter is A Kid-Friendly Animation Collection


CMON is back with its next big board game Kickstarter campaign. This go-around, the company is adapting some fan-favorite cartoons into family games.

Board game mega-publisher CMON doesn’t really make flops. Sure, some of its productions aren’t as successful as others; however, its Kickstarter campaigns almost always make tons of money. So anytime it announces a new campaign, people in the hobby should probably pay attention. Today, the company announced it will be bringing a new collection of games based on popular animated properties to the table soon. Backers will get board games based on Scooby-Doo, Teen Titans, and the Looney Tunes. Basically, if you’re looking for some high-quality family games, this is something worth keeping an eye on.

Personally, this isn’t the most exciting project CMON has ever put together. That said, I was pretty cool on Marvel United and that game nearly cleared $3 million on Kickstarter. I don’t foresee this new Animation Collection hitting those numbers, but I have no doubt it’ll be successful.

The Scooby-Doo game was previously announced earlier this year by CMON. In it, you and up to four friends will work together to catch monsters. Think of it a bit like a more kid-friendly version of Horrified.

On the other side of things, both of the other games use CMON’s new Mayhem system to turn things competitive. Again, I wouldn’t expect super deep and intricate gameplay; however, I think you can expect some good family fun in the vein of something like Munchkin or King of Tokyo.

We don’t have a launch date for the CMON Presents: The Animation Collection Kickstarter launch. That said, I don’t think you’ll have to wait much longer for it to kick off.
