Escape the Dark Castle is a casual, cooperative adventure game with a focus on atmosphere, player cooperation, and fun. Designed with newcomers to tabletop gaming in mind, it takes 2 minutes to set up, lasts around 30 minutes, and no two games are ever the same.
1-4 players take the roles of prisoners on a quest to Escape the Dark Castle, and must work together to overcome its many horrors, traps, and challenges – each of which is represented by a large, beautifully illustrated chapter card. As these immersive chapter cards are revealed one by one, the game takes on the form of a shared storybook experience, with the players making decisions about what to do each chapter before using a combination of dice and item cards to complete challenges.
The goal of the game is for the group to complete every chapter in the 15-card castle deck, and then defeat the final boss. To win, they must keep every member of the team alive – if any player is killed the game ends immediately and all players lose.
Escape the Dark Castle is largely inspired by 80s fantasy classics like the TV programme Knightmare, the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series, Dungeons & Dragons, and Heroquest.
Come aboard and sail to Pirate's Cove...the legendary hideaway of thieving pirates and cutthroat buccaneers. The tales of those legendary pirates of old who've fought and survived these mysterious waters still haunt all those who yearn for a life at sea. Armed with a secret map and starting with a modestly outfitted sloop salvaged from last winter's storm, you set sail to Pirate's Cove - your eyes filled with visions of treasure and fame, your lungs filled with the salty air of the High Seas.
Your objective: to battle for the rights to plunder and become the most famed and feared Pirate the world has ever seen. To do so, you will need to navigate shrewdly, fight recklessly and pillage mercilessly. You will gain fame by winning battles; burying gold and treasure; and bragging about your exploits at the Tavern. At the end of twelve months, the pirate with the most fame will be declared the most fearsome Pirate of the High Seas!
After many years of living in peace, the heroes of Andor receive a new cry for help — this time from the distant land of Hadria. You immediately step aboard an old sailing vessel to embark on a perilous journey to the north. After you have properly equipped your ship, you discover strange islands and must work together to protect their coasts from terrible sea monsters. Soon thereafter you find yourselves in the midst of thunderous storms.
You must persevere against the unbridled forces of the sea. And a great secret will be uncovered during your journey.
This expansion for the highly awarded and beautifully illustrated Legends of Andor offers four legends with new challenges, new heroes, and new creatures. Along with the base game, this is a cooperative role-playing adventure game for two to four players.
Who will rule the South Seas?
