A Princess Bride Adventure Book Game is coming October 2020. Publisher Ravensburger has announced a new family cooperative game (ages 10+ and up) inspired by the iconic fantasy film for 1 – 4 players. The announcement is below:
“In this chapter-based board game, players need to work together to keep the plot of the story on course and tell all six chapters despite constant interruptions from a sick Grandson and interference from Vizzini, Count Rugen and Prince Humperdink. Players cooperate to complete challenges by moving the seven paintable character miniatures and discarding Story cards from their hand. Once all chapters are completed, the players win the game and true ‘wuv’ prevails.”
Princess Bride is one of the most iconic films ever made. Even though it came out in 1987, the masterpiece still holds up today. While home sick in bed, a young boy’s grandfather reads him the story of a farmboy-turned-pirate who encounters numerous obstacles, enemies and allies in his quest to be reunited with his true love.
It is not just a fantastic story filled with romance and adventure, it is filled with a slew of all stars. The film was directed by Rob Reiner and stars Robin Wright and Cary Elwes in the lead roles with other major roles from Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant, Fred Savage, Peter Falk, Carol Kane, Billy Crystal and more.
Insert “INCONCEIVABLE” joke here. If you are not familiar with the film, check out the trailer below and then do yourself a favor and watch this classic.
