It will be up to you to take control of a specialized squad of resistance heroes and take the fight to Skynet. For now, the year is 2018, and River Horse and Lynnvander Studios have teamed up to bring you Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance. Join the cause, and back us on Kickstarter today!

The Terminator

board game design

Team Lynnvander has been hired to design The Terminator™: The Official Board Game! Working with the creative heads over at Space Goat Productions, Lynnvander is responsible for the design and development of this spectacular board game.

Want to know more?


The Terminator™: The Official Board Game is an asymmetrical strategy game for 2-5 players played across two boards: one in 1984 and one in 2029. One player takes control of all of Skynet’s forces: Hunter Killer machines, Terminator cyborgs, and more. The rest of the players take the role of the human resistance, struggling against the impossible odds of the machine uprising. Each of the two game boards play differently: 2029 focuses on light troop and resource management in a lopsided battle for dominance. 1984 focuses on personal missions with high stakes and intense pacing. Missions arise through the course of gameplay, and have players make decisions in 1984 that will affect the future, erasing and adding components in real time.

Lynnvander Go-Ninja!

Lynnvander Studios is excited to announce that we are teaming up with Shinobi 7 to bring  you 2 new licensed anime games in late 2016/ early 2017. These will be our first games made in association with Shinobi 7, and we’re hyped to show off what we’re capable of with Strike Witches, and Spice and Wolf! Shinobi7-logo-headerTo us, making good licensed games is about capturing everything the fans love about the source material, and still creating games that can stand on their own merits as great board games that anyone can enjoy. Both games will feature easy to learn game-play, with real depth, and will reflect the feel and concepts that make their respective shows awesome! We’re super excited to work on these cool new titles, and to be working with Shinobi 7!
