Big Trouble in Little China: The Game now available to pre-order

Everything Epic and Flipside have announced that they are now accepting pre-orders for the upcoming board game Big Trouble in Little China: The Game, which is based upon John Carpenter’s cult classic movie starring Kurt Russell, and is priced at $99.95.

The game allows 1-4 players to work together and experience the events that they remember from the film as well as create new adventures of their own, with dozens of film inspired story quests and 40 highly detailed miniatures to fire up the imagination.

Jack Palance kisses mice. Teri Hatcher plays drums. Just two of the many remarkable things we've discovered in Tango & Cash...

In this occasional series of 'remarkable things' articles, we've mostly focused exclusively on movies that were critical or financial flops. Previous entries have included Jaws: The Revenge, Battlefield Earth and RoboCop 3, which all suffered in both critics' reviews and at the box office.

At this stage in Sylvester Stallone's career, which featured the critical and financial nightmares Rocky V, Oscar and Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, Tango & Cash was a comparative blockbuster.

In terms of critical reception, though, Tango & Cash fared less well. It was nominated for three Razzies (though won precisely none) and reviews
