The Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game KS campaign has been incredible. It became the most successful Mythic Games campaign, reaching over $5 million and 30,000 backers, and it is also the 7th most funded tabletop game on KS, not to mention the most successful video game to tabletop adaptation. And, it’s because of all the backers, every step of the way. You. Thanks to your support, we are able to make this darkest dream come true – a beautiful and grim board game into which you can immerse yourself.
Darkest Dungeon: The Board Game is an adaptation of the acclaimed Darkest Dungeon video game developed by Red Hook Studios and released in January 2016. Darkest Dungeon is now moving from the screens to your table. After an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, the game is now available for late pledgers too.
In this cooperative 1-4 player rogue-like dungeon crawler, you play as heroes recruited for a campaign consisting of a series of quests in increasingly dangerous dungeons, until you enter the Darkest Dungeon and face the ultimate boss. Although brave and determined, adventurers are only human! They are prone to the madness and pain the twisted dwellers of the dungeons will inflict upon them. Death can occur, but is not the worst fate: heroes can be driven mad and beyond help!
The game is played in campaigns of 11 missions. To reach the Darkest Dungeon itself, players will undertake 3 missions per threat level and vanquish the boss. Then, they will be strong enough to face the horrors of the Darkest Dungeon! They may emerge victorious... if they dispatch the source of evil that plagues the land.

Please note that the information which was displayed during the KS campaign were shipping estimates, as the pricing was not finalised with our hubs. Shipping was NOT charged during the KS campaign, this is why when you checked out, it appeared as 0. You will have to pay for the shipping charges here, based on your delivery address. We have tried our best to provide the best possible quotes and we are utilising multiple hubs for fulfilment.
Shipping in the EU, UK, USA, Canada and Australia is friendly, meaning you will not have to pay for customs when you receive the game. For the rest of the countries, you could be asked to pay for customs fees, depending on your country's policy.
The estimated shipping date for the game is November 2021. However, there are factors that we do not have any control over, such as the Covid-19 pandemic we encountered, that we cannot predict and could affect the delivery date. For any information with regards to shipping, as well as overall news on the work that is being done on the game, we are giving updates every other Wednesday on our Kickstarter, as well as our Newscast on YouTube. Make sure to check either of those, as you will not receive an email if you are a Late Pledger.
