The A-Team: B.A. Lends a Hand in the Race for the Formula

board game

Containing a rich history dating back to ancient times, board games delight children and adults alike with their playful nature. Though these games come in a wide variety of topics and themes, many games connect with the culture of their times. Wealth accumulation games reflect the growth of a consumer society, war games re-create familiar battles, and educational games prepare children for school and work. Popular television shows, films, books and other entertainment media also find their way into board games, allowing players to actively participate in their favorite fictional worlds. This board game is based on the American action-adventure television series "The A-Team," which aired on NBC from 1983 to 1986. The series focused on a group of four former US Army Special Forces soldiers, who were wrongly accused of being war criminals during Vietnam. Now soldiers of fortune, they attempt to help those around them and bring villains to justice. The show is also known for increasing the fame of Mr. T, who played B.A. Barcus, one of the main characters. This board game simulates the TV series by allowing players to become members of The A-Team and join in the search for a secret formula hidden in a well-defended fortress.
