Goblins Expansion for Laybrinth previewed


December 28th, 2016

Coming next year, you’ll be able to add more goblins to your games of the Labyrinth board game from River Horse with their Goblins expansion.

When you open the box you will find five beautifully sculpted miniatures (pictured above, supplied models will be unpainted) and 5 cards that can be added into the deck to change the Labyrinth game. From here on in you will have two choices, either you can forge on as before using the new models to replace the standees that come with the Labyrinth game, making your Labyrinth experience more immersive but not changing any rules. Your second option is to replace some cards of the Labyrinth deck with Goblin cards giving you a chance to encounter the mischievous blighters throughout the game. A goblin on the game board cannot be traveled past unless they are defeated adding a new set of choices whenever you decide which way to go, don’t let yourself be hemmed in!

Expect to see the Goblins expansion on store shelves early next year (probably February).
