Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game and its Boss Expansion come in slickly-produced boxes that are ready for store shelves. Meanwhile, the stretch goals box is…short on style points. Everything is packed in an otherwise non-descript cardboard box save for the black print on its face. Considering its steep $150 price point, I wish Jasco Games had a better way of presenting this content.
Where it lacks in presentation it makes up for with the plethora of goodies inside the box.
Here come new challengers!
Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game Boss Expansion introduces two of the franchise’s most fearsome foes: M. Bison and Akuma. While I can imagine most players of the base game would welcome the addition of new characters – especially these two – they’re sold as part of a larger bundle that may be prohibitively expensive.
Does this box have enough content to justify its premium price tag?
The word “miniatures” might appear in the name, but there’s nothing small about Street Fighter: The Miniatures Board Game. From its 3D terrain to its Amiibo-sized pre-painted figures, this game’s table presence is nothing short of formidable. But does this tabletop fighter have the gameplay to match its premium presentation?
I love Street Fighter! I love board games! Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game is my dream come true!
Designed by YouTuber Angry Joe and published by Jasco Games, it features gorgeous miniatures, multiple stages, and 40-card decks for each character. I want to believe that this is everything I’ve been dreaming of, but there is still much for me to consider. As it usually goes with Kickstarter board games, particularly ones that feature miniatures, the entry price is steep, scaling exponentially higher if you want stretch goals and the expansion characters. On top of that, I want to read the manual and watch the how-to-play videos to see if this could meet my particular expectations.
