River Horse Announces Jim Henson’s Labyrinth The Card Game

"What's with that rubbish? It doesn't even start with "I wish!"

River Horse, who moves the stars for no one but has previously published Jim Henson’s Labyrinth The Board Game and Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal The Board Game, once again invite players to once again choose down with Jim Henson’s Labyrinth The Card Game, based on everyone’s favorite 80’s fantasy musical.

Labyrinth The Card Game is essentially a family-weight trick-taking game, based on medieval era card games (but of course, things aren’t always what they seem to be). Players must work with their partner to win hands and claim mastery over the Labyrinth (or at least find their way to the center). There are also more advanced rules that add elements such as having to follow suit (It’s not fair!). The game features 80 tarot-sized cards with original art by Ralph Horsley based on the original character designs of Jim Henson and Brian Froud. No clear indications as to player count, but should be at 4-players based on the game play description.

Jim Henson’s Labyrinth The Card Game is currently available for pre-order from River Horse and should arrive some time this year. More details can be found here. Dance magic, dance!
