We already talked about the Shinobi 7 created Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers board game that hit Kickstarter in February, but it seems that same game now has competition with IDW Games’ Sonic the Hedgehog: Crash Course featuring classic Sonic characters which is up for pre-order on Game Nerdz. The game is part of the ‘IDW’ brand, so it seems we might get a classic Sonic the Hedgehog comic to tie-in? At the very least, there should be issue #1 of IDW Sonic included according to retail listings on other sites. Also to note, this board game only costs $18.97 to pre-order and has a MSRP of $29.99!
