Jim Henson’s fantasy movie The Dark Crystal was an interesting movie in its day. The use of puppets in the movie was much more realistic than the Muppets were ( I can’t believe I just made that comparison).
If you remember that move and are a fan of it and missed out on the pre-orders, well now is your time to get yourself a copy. It is available for order from the River Horse. This game has you adventuring as Jen and Kira to find the lost shard to fix the Dark Crystal.
This looks to be a game that the whole family can play. Included in the game box is the following…
- 4 highly collectable figurine renditions of the main characters:
- 2 Gelflings – Jen and Kira (with Fizzgig!).
- 2 Skeksis – skekSil the Chamberlain and skekUng the Garthim-Master
- Rules booklet – 24 pages.
- 2′ × 2′ game board – lavishly illustrated with inspiring new artwork featuring all the legendary places from the movie, including Aughra’s Observatory, the Valley of the Stones and the Crystal Castle.
- 25 World cards, 9 Mystic cards, 7 Skeksis cards and 15 Minion cards.
- Over 20 game tokens.
- 6 polyhedral dice (D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20).
- 4 character sheets and 4 Special Ability cards.
- Cardboard stand-ups and bases: 4 Garthim, 1 Slave Podlings, 1 Gourmand Skeksis and 1 Slave-Master Skeksis
- 1 Orrery turn track (top and bottom, with plastic connector).
So, if you are looking for a fun evening with the family playing a board game based on a movie from your childhood then The Dark Crystal may just be for you.
Do you remember the movie?
