Toy Fair 2017-Dark Souls The Board Game

I had no clue that this game was being made until i saw it at Toy Fair and i was blown away. The board game started life as a humble Kickstarter project. In time, however, it amassed an army of backers some 31,178-strong. These rabid “Souls” and board game fans then proceeded to raise more than $5.4 million in crowdfunding. Now that’s a Kickstarter success story!


The Company behind the game is Steamforged games and it is a 1-4 player exploration and combat game. It comes with many great looking minatures, dice, boards, cards and much more for you and up to 4 people to begin playing. 

I was able to play in a boss battle against Dancer of the Boreal Valley (from Dark Souls 3) and i used both a Knight and Warrior to go against him. The Dancer’s actions are controlled by AI cards and your objective is to defeat him so you can advance to the next board. To do so, you have to have the best equipment and experience points avaliable. Your hits, dodges and blocks are determined by the dice and you will lose when both your stamina and health reach together. I was told that there was only about 5 people that actually defeated the Dancer since they started demoing the game back in the summer but I came close but i lost. When one player dies in the game, everyone else is sent back to the bonfire (or in this case, back to start) so it is recommended that you and your players strategize your moves before you make them. 


The Game comes out in April and i cannot wait to try this in full.
