Developed by the team at River Horse, Jim Henson’s Labyrinth the board game is a simple, fun game that allows 1 to 5 players to join forces in an attempt to rescue Toby from the Goblin King.
“You have thirteen hours in which to solve the labyrinth, before your baby brother becomes one of us… forever.”
Players must navigate the maze to save Sarah’s baby brother. Each game is different with the blank card spaces being filled with the magical encounters and monsters that are depicted on the deck of cards that comes with the game, this ensures a great deal of replayability and unpredictability in the game, giving the Labyrinth its signature feel.
The game consists of two distinct stages, one where the group must adventure through the labyrinth trying to find the goblin city whilst keeping their willpower as high as possible (nobody wants to fall into the oubliette!), and a second action packed stage where the players must fight their way into Jareth’s castle where Sarah must say the magical words that will release her brother.
“You have no power over me.”
The playing pieces are beautifully detailed as seen below in the pre-production images. The game is scheduled for a summer release and you can find you more via River Horse’s website, Facebook Page and rapidly expanding Facebook Group.
