PREPARE TO DIE

You probably saw this on Kickstarter. If you’re a Dark Souls fan, it would be hard not to have heard about it. But we don’t always have the money to plunk down on a hypothetical game, and we don’t always trust campaigns to come through with the goods on time. Steamforged, however, definitely delivered, and now that they’ve sent their backers copies of the game, it’s time for us to get in on it, too.

Meet Dark Souls, in board game form. It’s got that same exponential challenge rating as the video game, along with the mechanism that returns you to the stupid bonfire every time you die. Which you will. A lot. And you may grind and grind and never even get to the main boss. But when you finally defeat the boss, it’s so dang satisfying. And even if you never do, you’re going to get a box full of really spectacular PVC miniatures, so that’s some consolation, right?
