The award winning game Orcs Must Die! has at last made its way to the table top! Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame dares you to preserve your stronghold sieged by orcs. You have traps & weapons galore, and can team up with your friends to obliterate the nasty orcs and their grotesque allies. Robot Entertainment has joined forces with award-winning designer Sandy Petersen to create Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame project. Our new game has been precisely adapted to the tabletop environment. It includes scores of great plastic figures of all your favorite heroes, plus hordes of orcs, crossbow orcs, kobolds, gnolls, trolls, ogres, and more. Build an exciting fortress using our tile-based system, then watch as swarms of baddies plunge through your defenses to wreck your Rift.It has plenty of miniatures to play with and to paint of course, heroic 28mm scale. You can either get the Order box, where you take side with the good guys, battling the orcs, kobolds, ogres, trolls etc. or the Unchained box, siding with the bad guys against the humans, elves and dwarves. You play heroes and by killing waves of invaders, you earn skulls, which you can spend on items and traps to upgrade your defenses.
Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame is designed and published by Petersen Games. Our friends at Robot Entertainment have licensed the use of their great Orcs Must Die! IP, including art and other digital assets. However, Petersen Games is solely responsible for creating and running this project. Find out more at Petersengames.com.
