River Horse Games, those chaps responsible for the Labyrinth board game, are turning their eye to another world… another time…

Yes, they’re developing a game based on The Dark Crystal!  The game is already available for pre-order on the Australian retailer Popcultcha.com, along with the box art and the details below:

Will Jen and Kira manage to find the Shard and heal the Dark Crystal? Only you can decide their fate with this amazing Dark Crystal Board Game based on the classic 1982 film by Jim Henson!

You’ll be lost in the magic of the game, which can be played by up to 3 people on a 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.

With The Dark Crystal getting its own prequel series on Netflix soon, what better way to celebrate than with the official Dark Crystal Board Game?!


4 x Highly collectable player tokens featuring figurine renditions of the main characters:
2 x Gelflings – Jen and Kira (with Fizzgig!).
2 x Skeksis – skekSil the Chamberlain and skekUng the Garthim-Master
25 x World cards
9 x Mystic cards
7 x Skeksis cards
15 x Minion cards.

6 x Polyhedral dice (D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20).
4 x Character sheets and 4 Special Ability cards.
8 x Cardboard stand-ups and bases: 4 Garthim, 1 Slave Podlings, 1 Gourmand Skeksis and 1 Slave-Master Skeksis
1 x Orrery turn track (top and bottom, with plastic connector)
Over 20 game tokens.

An absolute must for any Dark Crystal fan!

We are expecting the game to be available in January, 2018, though nothing has yet been confirmed by River Horse or The Jim Henson Company.

Click here to remember that the loser of the game gets banished from the citadel on the ToughPigs forum!
