Samurai Jack: Back to the Past Tabletop Experience Available Now

In one of the coolest moments in animation this past year was the surprise comeback of Samurai Jack. Long-time fans were absolutely stoked to see the hilarious cartoon once more and see familiar faces one last time. For those that love the series and want to take their fandom pride even further, this tabletop game is the one for you.

Samurai Jack: Back to the Past is a co-op experience for up to 5 players and begins shortly after the beginning of season 5. According to our friends over at ThinkGeek, “Help Samurai Jack get back… back to the past in this board game for up to five players. The story picks up at the start of the fifth season (the 2017 [adult swim] one). You assume the guise of one of Jack’s friends, Ahi, The Scotsman, Monkey Man, Sir Rothchild, or Max, to help Jack stay sane AND get back to the past to ensure Aku never exists. The play lasts three rounds, and the player with the most honor wins.”
