After coming off their huge successful Kickstarter with Conan, Monolith gets their biggest license property yet with Batman: The Board Game. The team behind the game was demoeing their newest project at Game Festival in Canne. Board Game Geek Snagged a picture on their twitter account of the demoed product.
Monolith also showed off their booth via their Facebook page. It shows off very stylized artwork and no shock that it says coming to Kickstarter. The people that back their games though better hope they have a more understanding for writing rulebooks. Conan was an amazing game and I would not be surprised if this funding goal goes past 4 million. Below are some pictures of the gorgeous miniatures as well.
