If you can recite Sarah’s impassioned lines from the end of Labyrinth by heart, have we got the role-playing game for you! River Horse Games recently announced Labyrinth – The Adventure Game, an RPG with flexible rules for all levels of players.
We don’t know much about the officially licensed game beyond the initial announcement on the company’s Instagram, but we’d wager players will be fighting through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered.

Announcing Jim Henson’s Labyrinth – The Adventure Game⠀ ⠀ Jim Henson’s Labyrinth – The Adventure Game contains everything you need to enter the magical world of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. This beautiful collectors item contains a full epic adventure which can be played both by expert roleplayers using their favourite RPG rules system, and by fans of the Labyrinth who are not roleplayers, using the streamlined rules system included in the book!⠀ ⠀ Jim Henson’s Labyrinth – The Adventure Game will be released in 2019.⠀ ⠀ #RiverHorse #JimHenson #Labyrinth #Henson #Roleplaying #RPG #RoleplayingGame #Storytelling
Labyrinth – The Adventure Game can use homebrewed game rules from your favorite systems, says the announcement, or comes with its own set of rules. The game book is gorgeously bound and brimming with adventure, and we have a feeling it will be filled with beautiful artwork as well—longtime collaborator with Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and incredibly talented artist Brian Froud is listed as one of the game’s artists in the announcements.
The Henson classic seems to be in good hands with European tabletop game company, which has previously released Labyrinth the Board Game and its expansion, so they obviously know their way around Goblin City and Jareth’s Castle. River Horse Games has also crafted other licensed games based on The Dark Crystal, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay and Highlander: The Board Game. (We’re going to assume there can be only one winner in that one.)
Jim Henson’s whimsical world created for Labyrinth is delightfully bizarre and couldn’t be better suited to role-playing adventures. It almost defies description, so good luck out there, Game Masters.
