Us dice-throwing, card-turning, wargaming nerds have been represented! And it was in the latest Disney Pixar Movie, Onward. Where fantasy creatures lived in harmony and have time to play Dungeons & Dragons amongst their magic-free life. And what a surprise due to Chris Pratt's character - Barley's nerdy knowledge of the craft - they would ultimately save the day.

Well, as much as I enjoyed the film, USAopoly has now confirmed that Onward would be getting an RPG of its own under the name of Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition.

Inspired by the events of the film, Onward, this role-playing adventure for ages 8+ will allow 2-5 players to embark on a new and fully immersive quest. This will not be an adventure that is based completely on the movie, however, you will recognise lots of characters that you met in the film. Such as goblins, elves, cyclops and of course the famous Manticore. And you will meet some new friends (and foes) along the way!

Included in the box you will be set up and ready to start the adventure with your family. With dice, map tiles, a rule book, cards, character sheets and even some incredible miniatures in the box too. A perfect time to start the kids off miniatures painting!

It is honestly quite refreshing to see an RPG come from a movie that was based around fantasy questing! Usually, when a film comes out, it comes with a board game churned out with the release, and sometimes a video game that is usually targeted at kids. But this is due to hit retail May 12th 2021, there was plenty of time in between the film and the release of this role-playing game to know that it was not just created to earn as much money for the movie on release!

It's fabulous seeing more and more games for the tabletop reaching a younger audience, and growing to allow a whole family to enjoy together.

Are there any other family movies you would like to see as an RPG?
