Components of Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal Board Game by River Horse

“The Dark Crystal is a nostalgic, team-based, race against time, dice rolling romp based upon the classic movie by Jim Henson. The heroic Gelflings search the world for the shard that will heal the Dark Crystal, while the evil Skeksis attempt to thwart their search, whilst fighting amongst themselves for the position of Emperor.

The game is light on the complexity, and perfectly mirrors events of the movie, culminating in an epic showdown within the Crystal Chamber. The presentation throughout is second to none. You can tell that the publisher has treated the source material with reverence, and presented it in a fashion that fans will wholly enjoy. The miniatures are wonderfully sculpted and reproduced, effectively capturing the expressions of the characters. For miniature painters, they offer a unique project and will be a joy to paint.

For followers of The Dark Crystal, this is a must-have addition to your collection.”
