Be the Best Lara Croft in Tomb Raider Legends: The Board Game

Posted by | News | No Comments

Square Enix has announced a cardboard version of their hit Tomb Raider franchise. It’s called Tomb Raider Legends: The Board Game, and it’s developed in partnership with Crystal Dynamics and Hobby Japan Co. It has a suggested retail price of $59.99, and should arrive February 2019.

The board game is designed for 3-4 players with a run time of about 40 minutes. It has a suggested age of 13+.

Judging by the artwork it looks to encompass the full arc of the series, rather than just the rebooted trilogy. Each player plays a different version of Lara Croft as they race around a modular board. Use skills, wits, and tools to explore ruins, fend off enemies, and search for hidden treasures. This biggest threat is Lara herself – the other players.
