Darkest Dungeon Boardgame Kickstarter Already Funded

By Ramon Hara


The board game adaptation of Darkest Dungeon is one step closer to reality, now that the Kickstarter campaign is already funded in less than an hour.

Darkest Dungeon is an RPG game released by Red Hook Studios back in 2016. Those who have played the game know that Darkest Dungeon is famous for its difficult gameplay and touch choices, making it a game that some feel will also strive in tabletop form. Thankfully Red Hook Studios and Mythic Games announced that Darkest Dungeon is getting a board game adaptation, and it has just been revealed that the project has already reached its Kickstarter goal.

It is worth remembering that, while the board game adaptation's official announcement was made a couple of months ago, the Kickstarter campaign was only launched yesterday. However, it only took less than an hour for the project to meet its funding goal of $300,000. At the time of writing, the Darkest Dungeonboard game campaign on Kickstarter is now at $900,000 with 7,600 backers.

The Kickstarter campaign also emphasized that the board game will remain faithful to Red Hook's popular dungeon-crawling RPG featuring a co-operative tabletop experience for up to 4 players. Moreover, similar to the original game, the board game adaptation will present players with several challenges as they traverse the dungeons playing as various characters and classes.

Also, interested players should know that Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game is a Kickstarter exclusive and won't release to retail stores. The Kickstarter campaign details what players can expect in the upcoming tabletop game, such as its mechanics, stretch goals, and other freebies and rewards that pledgers will get for their contribution.

Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game is currently in development.

As the launch of the Kickstarter draws ever nearer, we’ve decided to give you a small series of articles to introduce you to the much-anticipated Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game, our new cooperative miniatures board game directly adapted from the acclaimed video game.

Why Darkest Dungeon

Every new Mythic Games project has to be special, something that has taken months or even years of work and thought. And we are particularly excited and proud to present this one! We have a lot of video game fans on our team. Fans who like big licenses and the classics, of course, but who also enjoy the more independent projects.

And among the latter, Darkest Dungeon has always been one of our favorites, if not “THE” favorite. It plunges you into a dark universe, heroic and desperate, where acts of bravery often come with madness, fear and death. It is a game that deals with the human psyche and resonates within each and every one of us. The video game is particularly addictive, due to its universe but also because of its exceptional gameplay.

From the beginning of this project, we worked hand in hand with the creators, Red Hook studio, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with artists as passionate about their product as we are of ours.

With each new project, we try to innovate, with the proposition of something really new, and we believe we have once again reached a new milestone with this adaptation. The theme, a rogue-like dungeon crawl RPG, is unusual for us and has never before been offered in our range. It brings real innovations, such as the dungeon generation mechanism and its single tile on which you play at any time.

Moreover, the miniatures, which fully respect the artistic direction of the brilliant Chris Bourassa from Red Hook, are unlike any others on the market: their style and proportions are completely unique.

A challenging project

As with every new project, we want to offer you the highest possible quality, not only in the material but also in the art, sculpts and gameplay. Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game has a special place in our hearts because it is the adaptation of a license that we consider as having a “cult” following.

The challenge is to bring you back to the same sensations you had with the video game, without simply mimicking them. We have thus sought to complete the experience with a new way of interacting with your environment and your enemies: moving miniatures on a board, making tactical decisions not only in relation to your stance and available skills as in the video game, but also in relation to your position and movements on the tabletop.

Overall, adding the third dimension and miniatures allows you to experience Darkest Dungeon in a completely new way. Expect a cooperative and challenging dungeon crawl experience, with epic moments and enormous replay-ability, made possible by the game’s multiple variables (Curios, Quirks, Afflictions, Diseases, trinkets, buffs, debuffs, skills, bosses, monsters, levels, etc.). And all this while staying true to the dystopian framework of the game and its thrilling quotes, as if they were stated by Wayne June himself!

Will you answer the letter?

With this promise, we invite you, fans, game enthusiasts, and cult video game lovers, to join us on a new exciting journey through the secret corridors of the Darkest Dungeon, through a series of articles that will gradually reveal to you the different aspects of the board game. We’ll talk about Heroes, Combat, Exploration and our beloved Hamlet, highlighting every aspect of the board game, all before our torch stops burning. Darkness closes in, haunting the hearts of men.

So, what are you waiting for? Continue the reading! Read. Them. All!

Darkest Dungeon board game Kickstarter blows past $1 million in one day

Yesterday, October 20, a Kickstarter campaign for Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game went live with a hefty goal of $300,000. Also yesterday, that goal was reached and easily surpassed. As of today, October 21, it has raised more than $1.2 million—and still has 15 days to go.

Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game sounds a lot like Darkest Dungeon the videogame: 1-4 players assemble a team of ragged heroes at the Hamlet, and then embark on quests to explore dungeons, battle monsters, and help restore the Heir's mansion to its proper glory. But it's not just physical harm that threatens them—the "Stressful Affliction System" means each member of the party will have to grapple with potentially debilitating paranoia, abusiveness, fear, irrationality, and "a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks."

Campaigns in the board game will unfold over 11 missions, three per threat level, culminating in a faceoff in the depths of the Darkest Dungeon itself. Each hero will select three of seven available skills at the start of each mission (or more, once they're leveled up), and on each turn will choose from two available actions, including movement, interaction, changing stance, or using a skill. Between missions, you'll head back to the hamlet, where you'll try to recover from the horrors you've encountered.

There are only two tiers of rewards available, and as a big board game with a lot of parts, the pledges are fairly high. The "Corebox," which initially included a rulebox, eight hero and 64 monster miniatures, 32 dice, 12 double-sided room tiles, 16 hero boards, four skill boards, one Hamlet board, three main dashboards, 10+ Dungeon cards, 400+ Tarot, Poker, and Mini Euro cards, and 200+ tokens of various sorts, is $100, while $150 gets you that plus the Crimson Court add-on, with more monsters, tiles, and cards. 

Not cheap, no, but other hand, just look at it.

The runaway success of the campaign has already unlocked several stretch goals, though, meaning that both the core set and the Crimson Court will have more heroes, monsters, and rooms than originally planned.

Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game isn't expected to start shipping until November 2021, to ensure that the makers have plenty of time to deal with any unforeseen complications. The Kickstarter campaign will run until November 6. Oh, and in case you hadn't heard, Darkest Dungeon 2 is on the way, too—Red Hook Studios announced today that it will launch in Early Access on the Epic Games Store sometime in 2021.
