Industry buddy Dennis at Bellwether Games, who published my game Swamped, have a new game on Kickstarter right this very second. The Princess and the Goblin looks to be a fantastic family game for players aged 7+.

When the young Princess Irene noticed her special golden thread led straight into the goblin kingdom under the mountain, she did not hesitate, but followed it at once. There, in the dark, she discovered her friend, the miner boy Curdie, who had been trapped while searching for clues to the goblins’ evil plans.

Now, together they must make a daring escape. Can you retrace Irene’s steps through the dark maze of caverns, using only her special golden thread as your guide? Can you discover clues to save the kingdom? Or will the goblins catch you first?

In the game, you will explore the goblin’s vast underground cave network in search of clues to their evil plans. When you think you’ve discovered enough clues to save the kingdom, flip all of the pieces of your escape path in the correct order to find your way home. You will win if you can escape the mountain and find more clues than any of your opponents, but don’t get caught by the goblins!

The Princess and The Goblin is a tile-flipping game of memory and daring escape for 1-4 players ages 7+ that plays in about 10-20 minutes.

With under 5 days left, head over to Kickstarter now and get involved!


About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
