Do you dare venture into the Darkest Dungeon? Grab a sharp weapon, don your armor, and light a torch as you get ready to delve into battle in Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game. This cooperative board game, based on the popular indie video game, is the dungeon crawl of your dreams. Defeat nightmarish monsters and hunt for glittering treasure time and time again in this highly entertaining, atmospheric, and replayable tabletop experience.
Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game, exclusively on Kickstarter, is a cooperative game for 1-4 players ages 14 and up. Mythic Games has adapted the dark, desperate world of the indie video game in partnership with its creators at Red Hook Studio. In the immersive board game, a group of adventurers accepts a mission to cleanse a corrupted estate. However, the horrors they find on these cursed lands might just drive them mad. Can you survive long enough to complete your mission and escape in one piece?
Let Becca Scott give you the lay of the land–and the dungeon–in this episode of How to Play.
Eleven missions make up the dark heart of Darkest Dungeon. Choose your group of adventurers, each one rendered as a gorgeously detailed miniature, and plumb the depths of the dungeon to complete your quest. Work alongside your fellow players to forge your path. As you make your way through the campaign, you’ll have an opportunity to level up and buy gear before embarking on your next challenge.
In each campaign you’ll encounter a dungeon boss monster, chosen from a special deck, that will influence what you find within the catacombs and neighboring hamlets. Darkest Dungeon is incredibly replayable. Choosing different bosses, heroes, quests, items, and dungeon layouts make no two games of Darkest Dungeon the same.
Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game isn’t planned for a wide retail release. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the Kickstarter campaign! You have until November 6, 2020 to join the fray.
