The Jim Henson Company and River Horse are going to do it.
Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: The Board Game cometh.
The game is designed for up to four players, focusing on simple gameplay with beautifully carved character tokens for Sarah, Jareth, Hoggle, Ludo, and Sir Didymus atop Ambrocious.
It includes a 2′ x 2′ game board, 32 Labyrinth cards, game tokens, dice, character sheets, and much more.
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.
The game is expected to be released in the summer, and interested parties can keep tabs on it via the River Horse Labyrinth Facebook page.
