Princes of the Universe! Highlander the Board Game out now! (Riverhorse)

“Nuns! No sense of humor!”

The Kurgan

1986 was a fantastic year for movies, with some amazing movies making their big screen debuts for the first time.  We had James Camerons Aliens, the sequel to Ridley Scotts amazing thriller, John Hughes made us laugh with Ferris Buellers Day Off, and we where chilled by Oliver Stones Platoon that showed us the horrors of war. A sleeper movie that was an instant hit, was Russel Mulchay’s Highlander, a movie that pitted immortal warriors against each other as they fought for The Prize!  

The movie became a cult classic and made a star out of relative new comer Christoper Lambert, and with Sean Connery playing well himself really and one of the best movie soundtracks ever recorded by the legendary Queen, Highlander had everything to make it a great movie!

The movie spawned five sequels, two live action television series and three animated shows, and is currently about to be rebooted for next generation of movie goers!

Highlander is a perfect candidate for a game and although there was a very short lived card game based on the hit franchise, little else seemed to come along. Until now!

Earlier this year Riverhorse ran a very successful kickstarter campaign to bring the worlds of the Highland franchise to life, in the form of Highlander: The Board Game!  The campaign did great and Riverhorse have just announced that the game is finally about to be released

Fight for victory in a battle between Immortals, and be the last one standing to claim the ultimate prize! Highlander: The Board Game is now available in your local game stores and on our webstore. Get a closer look, and find out more on our website.
