Dark Tower first appeared some 38 years ago. Restoration Games wants to bring you that same sense of awe and wonder, pushing the boundaries of what a board game can actually do. After three years of painstaking work by a team of two dozen designers, engineers, and artists, they are thrilled to present to you a game with echoes of that long-gone wonder but ultimately unlike any game you’ve ever experienced.

Return to Dark Tower is a game for 1 to 4 heroes who undertake epic quests, fight fearsome foes, and test their mettle against the looming darkness of the titular tower. The game now features both cooperative and competitive play. Designed by Rob Daviau and Isaac Childres — designers of the two highest rated games of all time on Board Game Geek — along with Noah Cohen, Brian Neff, and Justin D. Jacobson, the streamlined rules offer players difficult choices about when to advance their objective, gather resources, deal with threats, or level up.

Each player controls a unique hero with their own starting inventory and special abilities. Along the way you gain helpful items, powerful virtues, and trusty companions to help you achieve your goal: Find a way into the Tower and defeat a powerful adversary.

Figuring out the best way to utilize all of these assets is the key to victory. The game actively works to stop you, responding to your decisions and taking advantage of your missteps. Foes, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, will stalk your hero and assault your buildings.
