River Horse does Highlander


 It seems that new the year is not over for some and certainly the work load as River Horse has announced plans (apart from rumours over an Arthurian game .Ed) to produce a new board game after obtaining the license for the movie Highlander.
The company has released few details about Highlander:  The Board Game, other than announcing that it is set in the same universe as the 1986 film staring Christopher Lambert, the new board game In Highlander, The Board Game, utilises an interesting concept of utilising the Immortals ability through certain circumstances like Connor is a strong choice for the early portions of the game. His high influence (owing to his charming personality) allows him to find the allies he needs to keep his unique ability in use. Connor is the immortal that most relies on his allies, his friends, and when he loses them he can harness his pain into a weapon that can be used against his enemies.

Excerpt from River Horse Facebook page
"The first character available for play in Highlander, The Board Game is Connor MacLeod, of the clan MacLeod. 
Born in 1518 in the village of Glenfinnan, on the shores of Loch Shiel, Connor MacLeod grew to manhood in the rolling highlands of Scotland. As a youngster, he was headstrong and impetuous, a known rascal and thiever of sheep. Kept from the worst of trouble by his kinsman, Dougal, Connor was a favourite of his uncle, the Clan Chief, Angus MacLeod. Here, he learned to wield a claymore and temper his rougher edges. A few skirmishes with cattle reivers and rival clans (especially the MacLeod’s longtime rivals, Clan Fraser) saw Connor acquit himself well enough to gain a reputation as a courageous warrior. A handsome man, he had no shortage of interested women, and he married his childhood sweetheart, Kate, at the village Wishing Stone."

River Horse Games has announced they plan both to produce the new licensed board game based upon the classic action movie Highlander through the crowd funding website 'Kickstarter' with a campaign to fund in January 2018.

Of cause River Horse is certainly no stranger to developing and creating board games and games based upon iconic films, with its successful Labyrinth:  The Board Game recently spawning a new expansion and the release The Dark Crystal a game based on Jim Hensons classic film and graphic novels of the same name. So exciting times ahead in 2018, as their can be only one.
