Well, we’ve all be meaning to get around to watching Labyrinth to truly honor the passing of David Bowie, but now we have even more intensive to do so because a board game coming this summer!
The game will be released by River Horse and the breakdown is as follows:
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-packed stage where the players must fight their way into Jareth’s castle where Sarah must say the magical words that will release her brother.

I can’t wait to play this game and either:
A. Quit halfway in because the rules are too hard to follow.
B. Quit halfway in because I’m losing but I claim everyone else is cheating.
In both scenarios, I flip the game board to make sure I ruin it for everyone. It’s gonna be an awesome summer.
