Mythic Games is excited to announce that their newest project Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game is now live on Kickstarter. In this cooperative dungeon crawler for 1-4 players, individuals will accept missions, dispatch imminent threats and work to restore the Heir’s mansion to its former glory, all while staving off the evil. This game is based on the hit video game of the same name and fans of that will definitely want to check out what the campaign has to offer.
Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game is a fully cooperative dungeon crawler game in which players take on the role of adventurers. Although brave and determined, adventurers are only human! They are prone to the madness and pain the twisted dwellers of the dungeons will inflict upon them. Death can occur, but is not the worst fate: heroes can be driven mad and beyond help!
The game is played in campaigns of 11 missions. To reach the Darkest Dungeon itself, players will undertake 3 missions per threat level and vanquish the boss. Then, they will be strong enough to face the horrors of the Darkest Dungeon! They may emerge victorious… if they dispatch the source of evil that plagues the land.
For each hero, select 3 skills out of 7 before heading into your mission (and level the heroes up to gain access to more skills). In each room, pick the most suitable stance to best resolve the conflict! Then, on each turn, a player chooses two of the available actions of moving, interacting with the environment, changing their stance or using a skill (if eligible for their current stance). Triumph over encounters, resist rampant madness and emerge victorious before throwing yourself into another battle. Between missions, spend your time in the hamlet, visiting various buildings to find relief from the physical and mental trauma you’ve just endured. Restore the hamlet to its former glory and it will reward you and help you to fulfill the ultimate goal.
Backers will not only get to help make this game a success but will also get double stretch goals and an exclusive hero free when backing the core game. Stay tuned to Gaming Trend for all your tabletop news.
