Barbarian Prince Board Game

Dwarfstar’s classic Barbarian Prince board game is now available for a free download.

From the original cover:

BARBARIAN PRINCE is a solitaire game of heroic adventure in a forgotten age of barbarism and sorcery. No opponent is necessary as the Event Booklet takes you through a pre-programmed sequence of encounters which is different each time you play the game. For each event, you, as the Barbarian Prince Cal Arath, must make the decisions which will make your quest successful — or may cost you your life.

BARBARIAN PRINCE is a new concept in Adventure Gaming. No rules reading is required; the programmed event sequence lets you begin play as soon as you open the box.

BARBARIAN PRINCE contains — A full-color 12″x 14″ mapboard, a die, rules folder, Event Booklet, and summary sheet

Goblin – A Dwarf Star Board Game

Are you old enough to remember the DwarfStar board games? If so, then you probably have the same fond memories as I do. One of my favorites was Goblin. In it, players take turns pillaging and plundering a hapless valley.

You can download a copy of the game here.

Agincourt Board Game

GMT Games offers a free download of a Battle of Agincourt game. If you’re familiar with their commercial board war games, you’ll know that they have wonderful graphics and gameplay, both of which are on display here.

Midnight Banshee’s Downloadable Boardgame

Ok. So its not really miniatures related, but it’s still really neat. Ravensblight has a downloadable game called Midnight’s Banshee which is a cross between a board game and a foldable paper model. The goal of the game is to collect five skulls from the tombs in the graveyard. But be careful, for you never know which one contains a vampire. There’s a clever spinner under the game board which randomizes the locations of the vampires.

Methuselah Vampire Hunting Game

Warpspawn games has a vampire hunting game called Methuselah designed to be played on a chessboard with a custom set of cards. One side plays Dracula and his minions, the other the vampire hunter and his assistants.

I think that some of the ideas could easily be lifted for use in more traditional miniatures games.
