I was pretty lucky with the board game, I got it in a sale in a local RPG shop for £1 because they were moving to a new location and selling off the second hand boardgames. And it was totally complete, without so much as a Helm Token missing.

Got a complete Heroquest from the same place as well, but it cost £20. Still, nice to see somewhere that checks the boardgames before selling them.

Yep, I've got one, fully intact. I also invented a new set of rules for it with Modeski.

Yup, me too! In excellent condition. I still remember when it was delivered from Broadsword - in a huge jiffy bag!

Got it for christmas '94, fantastic game that made up for those years without knightmare.
Never used to get any riddles right unfortunately, or at least I would be asked the easiest ones for fairness (I was only 10!)
Haven't played it for a while actually, largely due to the fact quite a few things are missing, including the riddle book which I haven't found since we moved.
I used to get annoyed with being thrown into the prison chamber with those rats (either because I lost a battle or picked up an unlucky card)

When I was ten I tried to make a Knightmare board-game, a three tier one (one for each level). I used the middle of a kitchen roll to make a well from level 1 - 2. Obviously it didn't work, but still, the idea was there!
I like my telly scary, and very dungeonish.

Boardgame

Post by Atmosfear »

I managed to get hold of the Knightmare boardgame off ebay the other day - and was just wondering if anyone else has this and what their opinions are!

I've read the review on the site - but it'd be cool to know a little about the game mechanics! Does it pull off a mini-knightmare, or is it a random game with the knightmare logo stuck on the front?

Also, slightly off topic has anyone tried to devise a pen and paper based d20 Knightmare RPG? I'm on the brink of starting work on one, but was just wondering if the community has beat me to it?

The boardgame is great fun- it typically features level's 1 to 3 with obviously three being the hardest. If memory serves me right I think level 3 consists of Merlin's chamber and having to answer many difficult riddles in order to obtain your quest object. Level's one and two feature series 1-3 chambers, with enemies you might have to deal with.

I haven't played on it for a while (for about five years as no one else likes it much :().

The rules are on the underside of the box cover- but I can't remember them off the top of my head. It is a good game but you might be saying oooh nasty more often than you expect.............
