“WHAT YOU THINK OF MY LABYRINTH?”

We can barely write this without wiping away a tear, even though we love making jokes about David Bowie, 1980’s hair, tight pants, and spinning crystal balls.

Ground Control to Major Tom: we’ll try to keep it together.

Now, board game fans can honor Bowie’s memory and their favorite 80’s fantasy puppet opera, with a cooperative board game by Alessio Cavatore. In Jim Henson’s Labyrinth Board Game, you can play as Sarah, Hoggle, Ludo, or Sir Didymus, and work together to rescue baby Toby from the Jareth, the Goblin king.

Cavatore designed the cooperative game for one-to-four players, but a fifth player can act as Jareth himself, and work against the others to keep the baby for himself.

The pieces are beautifully sculpted 3D models of the characters. Gameplay involves 13 turns – one for each hour that Sarah has to find her brother – and an assortment of magical adventures through the labyrinth and then through the castle itself. The Goblin Expansion adds some optional rules for more excitement!

Play time runs at roughly an hour. Dancing puppets not included.

Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game

Before Chell made her way through Aperture Science Laboratories in Portal and Portal 2, there were legions of Test Subjects who tried (and failed… a lot) to pass through those very same test chambers. Lured to their demise by the same thing that lures us most of the parties and company meetings we attend: the promise of delicious Cake!

Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal Board Game

Jim Henson absolutely knocked it out of the park with The Dark Crystal. He created a classic story while absolutely terrifying us as children with how some of these creatures look. If that doesn’t make you remember a movie, nothing will. Now you can relive those memories with the board game based off the movie. Just, hopefully, without the hiding behind the couch the first time you saw a skeksis.
