Escape the Dark Castle £29.99     

Escape the Dark Castle is a simple, fantasy adventure game for 1-4 players, with a focus on storytelling, atmosphere and player cooperation – perfect for newcomers to tabletop gaming. It takes 2 minutes to set up, lasts around 30 minutes, and no two games are ever the same.   

Players take the roles of prisoners and must work together using custom dice and item cards to overcome the castle's 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 storytelling experience, with the players making decisions about what to do each chapter as they embark on a desperate quest to escape. 

Contains: 

  • 45 chapter cards

  • 35 item cards

  • 6 character cards

  • 3 boss cards

  • 1 start card

  • 9 chapter dice

  • 6 character dice
