Prepare for two to be made one when you dive into the Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal Miniature Board Game from River Horse!

River Horse has been around since 2010 and has made such games as Terminator: Genisys and Jim Henson’s The Labyrinth. Their games are miniatures-based (well most are, save for their My Little Pony RPG…) and those miniatures come pre-painted or unpainted and cast in metal or resin. Now, they have announced the pre-order for Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal Board Game. The game is for two to four players and comes with 4 collectible figurines of Jen and Kira(with Fizzgig) and skekSil the Chamberlain and skekUng the Garthim Master. Also included are cards, tokens, rule book, 2’x2′ game board, dice, and more.
