Game Development Company Ltd. said...

The game is currently in production. We anticipate the game to be ready to ship to retailers by Feb/March of 2008. GDC will keep you posted through this blog.

who cares. please just put more time into good booking, pushing home grown talent and the x division. a board game isn't going to put TNA on the map or make it a serious contender with the WWE.

Game Development Company Ltd. said...

Part of building a presence with a brand is to develop an exciting licesing/merchandise program. By doing so, you help build brand exposure. So although you may not think (anonymous) that this is important, in the larger picture, it's a piece of the puzzle.

I think it should have some kind of fast pace action instead of having it all be trivia based.

Total Non-Stop Adrenaline or
TNA's Adrenaline Rush

Game Development Company Ltd. said...

The game is not a trivia game. There's a lot of interaction between players. You get to have matches against your opponents, etc

trunks926 said...

I think the dvd portion of the game should show a real match between the superstars picked. Have breaks within the match to allow the players to determine the way the match plays out by mini-games or even quick trivia questions. Maybe by winning a mini-game you can choose your superstars next move or reversal.

I don't think that trivia should be completly dropped from the game!
there needs to be a good balance!

UK TNA fan said...

trunks 926 had a good idea! the things that I look for in a good game is:
Originality
Fast Paced
Not too long
Interesting
Lots of content

UK TNA fan said...

A career side of the game would be good! to be able to choose a TNA star. and answer questions/win mini-games to develop skills and get to the main event/PPV e.c.t

uk tna fan said...

will the TNA board game be coming to the UK??????


please,please,please
(fingers crossed)

uk tna fan said...

I think add-ons could be a great way to keep this game fresh and updated. Have the board and the pieces and dice as a base product. then if a new star joins the roster or a new match is created. release extra merchandise to cater for it.
Even 2nd,3rd,4th edition DVD's with more content on them could be released.
There are so many choices with add-ons.
I'd definately buy them!!!

uk tna fan said...

It needs to be completely different to the other DVD board games on the market. Don't make it too long and drawn out keep it fresh and exciting.

uk tna fan said...

because TNA is the future of professional wrestling. I think it would be cool to step away slightly from traditional board game methods like dice/cards/money ect. innovative things for even doing the simple stuff like moving around the board.
why not have a digital number readout that when the button gets hit it shows a random number just like a dice. Only more stylish, futuristic and innovative

P.S when will the box cover artwork be available to vote on???

uk tna fan said...

I was thinking how the game could be won/lost and this also comes in to the "not to long and drawn out" concept.
What if the board game has a time limit say between 30-60mins. during that time you establish your career, fight in matches, earn money/experience then at the end of the time limit... you've made it to Main Event of Bound For Glory with you and the other players in it. all the things you have accumulated would give you an advantage/disadvantage in the final supershowdown!!!

uk tna fan said...

what if different wrestlers have different attributes for example: if you chose sonjay dutt you can move around the board twice as fast. or if your the monster abyss you have an added power advantage in matches!!!

also...
I think real Don West/Mike Tenay commentary on what your doing in the mini-games and DVD matches would be cool!!!

trunks926 said...

Just a thought, but maybe the board game could have some connection with the video game. Like a code or something to unlock features or other unlockables on the videogame.

Game Development Company Ltd. said...

We're already in discussions with the video game developer. Details be released once they are available.

trunks926 said...

Will there be a way to record or playback matches?

Game Development Company Ltd. said...

The game is very interactive between the players that are playing the game. Each player will have several wrestling matches throughout a game play session.

As you're having matches, you are keeping track of who is winning but there's no need to physically record the matches nor is there a need for the DVD to keep track of the matches.

sms said...

that is really cool i like the trivia part and there should be some interaction

ABYSS SLAY JUDIAS said...

Will Every single TNA wreslter be involved? coz I love TNA and hate WWE because that time when fanny mcmahon pretended to be dead I hope this Tna boardgame will be the best ever boardgame in da world P.S when does the video game come out in da UK?

Are the Knockouts going to be in the game and will it be a Create a superstar section?

Game Development Company Ltd. said...

Most of the TNA Stars and Knockouts will be featured in the game. As we're developing the game we are constantly updating the roster to make sure it represents the current TNA roster. Once we go into manufacturing, we will not be able to update the roster until we release the 2nd version of the game.

Presently there is a "create your own Star" aspect to the game play. We are currently testing this to make sure it fits within the overall game.

I can't wait, ihope you can have matches and have wrestling shows and PPV's! You could sell add-on modules for each PPV featuring different specialty matches etc.
