Steamforged Games Ltd. recently wrapped up a highly successful Kickstarter campaign to bring 'Dark Souls: The Board Game' to life. Designed to deliver the same immersive experience as the original 'Dark Souls' video game, the new tabletop game allows players to explore dangerous places filled with monsters, treasures and deadly battles.

Dark Souls: The Board Game "is a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game" designed for one to four players. The game is set in the same Dark Souls universe as the video game and uses intricate miniatures to bring the game's iconic characters to life. As players explore different locations, they will encounter everything from rare treasures to deadly boss fights.

While Dark Souls: The Board Game is not set to ship until the spring of 2017, the overwhelming response to the game's Kickstarter campaign indicates a strong demand for a tabletop version of the Dark Souls video game.
