Thanks to E.W. we learned that USAopoly has partnered with Cartoon Network/Adult Swim on a new Samurai Jack board game. The game is titled Samurai Jack: Back to the Past uses time travel to send Jack and his friends back before the Aku had taken control as you try and fight your way back to your time.
Samurai Jack: Back to the Past follows the time travel premise of the show. Just as Jack tries to find a way back to his own time from the dystopian cyberpunk nightmare future he was sent to by his enemy Aku, players will move along the board and strive to defeat various villains while finishing with the most Honor. There are Allies, Traits, and Weapons to use, but Jack’s Sanity must also be guarded during his adventure. Different game pieces are modeled after Jack, Aku, and other characters like Ashi, the Scotsman, Monkey Man, Sir Rothchild, and Max.
