Tales From The Loop: The Board Game Launches February 8


After some delays, Free League is finally ready to launch Tales From The Loop: The Board Game. If you think you’ve seen this before, you haven’t….well, you have, just not in THIS form.

The Tales From The Loop board game is set in the same world as the roleplaying game, only with different rules and more physical props. It’s the same story: there’s a huge underground science facility called the Loop that’s doing off-the-book experiments and causing weird things to happen in the local community. You and your friends play the local kids curious about all of this. Lacking the adult sense to stay away, you run right into the danger area and start poking monsters with sticks.

The landscape was full of machines and scrap metal connected to the facility in one way or another. Always present on the horizon were the colossal cooling towers of the Bona Reactor, with their green obstruction lights. If you put your ear to the ground, you could hear the heartbeat of the Loop – the purring of the Gravitron, the central piece of engineering magic that was the focus of the Loop’s experiments. 

Born from a successful Kickstarter campaign, Tales From The Loop: The Board Game includes eight scenarios exclusive to the game, as well as six highly detailed miniatures based on Simon Stålenhag’s illustrations. The game will be available in Free League’s webstore starting February 8, but it will also get a retail release on the same day.
