New Tomb Raider Legends: The Board Game Details Revealed
Last year prior to the release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Square Enix announced Tomb Raider Legends: The Board Game. Revealed via a series of clues and puzzles, the game was announced with a Q1 2019 release date, and will feature Lara Croft on yet another grand adventure. Now, Square Enix has revealed even more details for the upcoming board game, as well as a tighter release window.
Square Enix’s official website has been updated with a slew of new details for its upcoming board game. The game is designed for 3 to 4 players, each of whom will be representing a different version of Lara Croft. According to the publisher, the objective of the game is for players to get “to the goal and acquiring the Artifact, all while attempting to avoid the constant threat of wounds, delays, and misdirection caused by other players and creatures.
The game board itself is also quite interesting, as it is split up into many pieces, each of which represents a different Tomb Raider game. According to Square Enix, the point of the game is to prove who is the “true” Lara Croft “by exploring mysterious ruins, fending off threats, using your wits, your ever-growing arsenal, and skills to beat the competition!”
Here’s what’s included in a single copy of the board game:
“Key details include:
Number of players: 3-4
Playtime: 40 min.
For Ages: 13+
4 Lara Croft Miniatures
1 Main Board
4 Player Boards
28 Action Cards
41 Raid Cards
