Take a look at the Board for Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: The Board Game

“You have thirteen hours in which to solve the labyrinth, before your baby brother becomes one of us… forever.”

MAY UPDATE: The Labyrinth is available for pre-order here until the 31st of May!

The most important piece of artwork in many games is the board. It is central to all players and is usually the largest physical part of a board game, and so with that in mind, we thought we would give you all a sneak peek at the board for our next game: Click on the keyhole to get a closer look!

As you can see, the board is very simplistic, beautifully illustrated and dominated by the titular Labyrinth. This is the maze that players must navigate every time they wish to save Sarah’s baby brother. Each game is different with the blank card spaces being filled with the magical encounters and monsters that are depicted on the deck of cards that comes with the game, this ensures a great deal of replayability and unpredictability in the game, giving the Labyrinth its signature feel.

The game consists of two distinct stages, one where the group must adventure through the labyrinth trying to find the goblin city whilst keeping their willpower as high as possible (nobody wants to fall into the oubliette!), and a second action pack
ed stage where the players must fight their way into Jareth’s castle where Sarah must say the magical words that will release her brother.

“Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen, for my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great.”
