THE PRINCESS BRIDE ADVENTURE BOOK GAME OVERVIEW
Inconceivable! Climb the Cliffs of Insanity, brave the Fire Swamp, and help Buttercup, Westley, Fezzik, and Inigo Montoya survive the dastardly machinations of Prince Humperdinck, Count Rugen, and Vizzini. Follow the incredible story of The Princess Bride through six chapters and work together to keep the plot on course despite Shrieking Eels, kissing, and constant interruptions! Will the forces of evil — or true “wove” — prevail?
In The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game, players work together to advance the plot and tell all six chapters despite interruptions from a sick grandson. Each chapter is represented by a new board within a “book” of game boards. Instead of each player controlling a single character, players cooperate to complete challenges by moving characters and discarding story cards from their hand.
Each chapter has a series of challenges that require characters to be in specific locations and specific story cards to be discarded from a player’s hand. All challenges must be completed before players can advance to the next chapter. A chapter can be interrupted by different story-based conditions or by the grandson. Players have one more chance to complete the story after an interruption, or they lose the game. Special story cards earned as a reward for completing challenges as well as miracle tokens give players more options and help them along the way.
The Princess Bride Adventure Book Game includes paintable miniatures for Westley, Princess Buttercup, Prince Humperdinck, Count Rugen, Vizzini, Inigo Montoya, and Fezzik.
THE PRINCESS BRIDE ADVENTURE BOOK GAME REVIEW
7.6 out of 10
There are many board games in this cooperative race against the clock genre but with Princess Bride taking place over 6 chapters (or small mini games) with cards earned following you on your journey, this game offers something new and unique that takes it to another level. Any fan of the original 1987 film will be very pleased with how they are thrown into the different settings of the film and how they come to life. This game is great solo or with a group.
THE PRINCESS BRIDE ADVENTURE BOOK GAME HOW TO PLAY
Each of the six chapters has their own rules and characters that participate. You do not play any of the characters, rather everyone participating collectively guides who is involved. You need to complete all the tasks of a given chapter before the grandson Fred Savage gets annoyed the story isn’t very good and interrupts. The “plot” cards make obstacles come up. You need to move and complete actions to fix these problems, but if you can’t keep up, they get out of control and you lose. You need to make it through all six chapters without 2x total interruptions in order to win.
