FlatBoard web

Price: $250.00 CAD | Limited to 50 copies

Note this item is for pre-order – games will be shipping in September 2017.

Jessica Seamans, who did the cover art for our book LOST GIRLS: THE PHANTASMAGORICAL CINEMA OF JEAN ROLLIN has hand-illustrated a full-sized Jean Rollin-themed mystery boardgame – a ‘whodunit’ game given the Rollin treatment, complete with kooky cousins, sinister twins, crypts, coffins, candelabras, a secret passageway behind the grandfather clock and more! All lovingly rendered in Jessica’s inimitable illustrative style and professionally manufactured for long-term enjoyment – and available in a limited edition of only 50 copies.

PLUS! The individual weapons pieces for the game are sculpted by British FX artist Dan Martin, who does the effects for Ben Wheatley’s films, was the effects supervisor on Human Centipede 2, and created the custom cameras used to film Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers.
