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.
Tomb Raider Legends is designed by the makers of the Final Fantasy Trading Card Game. While actual gameplay has only been teased, the full component list has been released as follows.
