Dark Souls

Price: ~$108 according to BoardGamePrices.

Prepare to die.

Welcome to Lordran.

The Dark Souls board game experience has been crafted as a series of combat encounters with iconic enemies from the video game, with tons of miniatures and content to devour (or be devoured by).

Players have to contend with minions, mini-bosses, and the giant bosses themselves, who each use unique AI decks to fight you with. Careful planning and foresight can help you evade their lethal attacks before moving in for the kill. Oh, and prepare to die. A lot.

Best. Title. Ever.

Trapped in the past by a broken time machine, players must work together to dodge dinosaurs, repair the machine, and escape their volcano-laden fate.

A pulpy science fiction adventure by legendary designer Kevin Wilson (Arkham Horror, Descent: Journeys in the Dark), Escape From 100 Million BC challenges its players to retrieve the time machine parts which have been strewn across the landscape while dealing with the various problems being trapped a hundred million years in the past will cause – including paradoxes that pull back historical figures into your timeline. Abe Lincoln anyone?
