There Will Be Games

Immerse yourself in the beloved story of dastardly plots and true "wove". 

Inconceivable! Climb the Cliffs of Insanity, brave the Fire Swamp, and help Buttercup, Westley, Fezzik, and Inigo Montoya survive the dastardly machinations of Prince Humperdinck, Count Rugen, and Vizzini. Follow the incredible story of The Princess Bride through six chapters and work together to keep the plot on course despite Shrieking Eels, kissing, and constant interruptions! Will the forces of evil or true “wove” prevail?

Includes seven paintable miniatures including Westley, Princess Buttercup, Prince Humperdinck, Count Rugen, Vizzini, Inigo Montoya, and Fezzik.

In The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game, players work together to advance the plot and tell all six chapters despite interruptions from a sick Grandson. Each chapter is represented by a new board within a "book" of game boards. Instead of each player controlling a single character, players cooperate to complete challenges by moving characters and discarding Story cards from their hand.

Princess Bride Board Game

Each chapter has a series of challenges, which require characters to be in specific locations as well as specific Story cards to be discarded from a player’s hand. All challenges must be completed before players can advance to the next chapter. A chapter can be interrupted by different story-based conditions or by the Grandson. Players have one more chance to complete the story after an interruption, or they lose the game. Special Story cards earned as a reward for completing challenges as well as Miracle tokens give players more options and help them along the way.

Will be avalible in Target in October. Wider avalibility TBA.

This is my wife’s favorite movie. If this is even halfway decent we’ll have to pick this up.

This sounds similar to Knizia’s “Lord of the Rings” board game. Some differences (you play all the characters rather than 1 particular hobbit), don’t know yet how the bad events will be handled.

But the “chapters” (different boards) rewards (Gandalf cards) brought that game to mind right away.

This could be a good thing because I still like LotR.

Good call.I didn't see that until you pointed it out. So maybe this isn't a kiddie game after all.
