The Dwarves: The Board Game: Own the award-winning fantasy board game – and help making it more awesome with the Saga Kickstarter!

The Dwarves: The Saga is an expansion for The Dwarves: The Board Game, a game by Pegasus Spiele that has taken its source material from a very popular German adventure series, The Dwarves by Markus Heitz.  This epic series tells the tale of the Dwarves Tungdil (the stories’ hero), and his friends Balyndis, Boëndal, Boïndil and Bavragor on their fight to save their homeland Girdlegard.

The Dwarves is a cooperative game in which players take on the role of one of the dwarf characters from Heitz’s stories.  Players work together to stop the evil forces comprised of Orcs, Trolls, and the Älfar from flooding Girdlegard.  The players’ goal is to complete a number of main quests in the form of Scenario cards before the forces of evil take over Girdlegard, and side quests are included to enrich gameplay.
