So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢

Return to Dark Tower – the “Charge The Tower” Pledge (aka base game with stretch goals)!!! Amazing game play and even more amazing TOWER! 🏯🎉❤️

“First-nighters, packed earmuff-to-earmuff, jostled in wonderment before a golden, tinkling display of mechanized, electronic joy!”

Sure, that’s a quote from the classic holiday movie, “A Christmas Story,” but it could just as easily be a description of a group of gamers playing Return to Dark Tower outside during winter in New York! 😉 And, totally random aside… my family and I have been watching “A Christmas Story” as a yearly tradition for as long as I can remember… my Dad was a HUGE Jean Shephard fan… and the sentiment sort of spread to the whole family 😁❤️

Ralphie aside… this game would be almost as good as receiving a Red Rider B.B. gun under the tree!!

I mean, as a die-hard Boardgamer I should say “even better than,” but it’s a BB gun.  I mean.. I’m just trying to be honest 😬

Fine… don’t talk to me… I’m thinking. 😉😂

Restoration Games is simply incredilble…

And their production of Return to Dark Tower fits right into their portfolio of wonders brought back from a by-gone era… I LOVE what they do!

Now, with that out of the way..

You missed the Kickstarter or simply didn’t realize how amazing it was going to be… <sigh>

You told yourself it would be fine. You’d already backed so many other games… and a person has to have limits.

Yeah.  It happens.

But now that you’ve had time to reflect on this self-imposed limit setting… and you figure… maybe it’s time to just put that silliness aside and enjoy Return to Dark Tower.

Mr. Candy Bar doesn’t judge you (or me… hehe)…

You will not regret having this on the shelf to pull down at holiday gatherings… everyone will love it! No requirement to be a hard-core Euro gamer like most of us are… It’s a wonderful game that the whole family can get in on! 🤓❤️

Lame excuses for virtually non-existent write-up 😬

I feel fairly confident that most everyone knows about this game… and given the number of new games I need to get onto the site and my limited time in NY due to that gig in The Bahamas… well… I am afraid I don’t have enough time to properly wax poetic about this fantastic addition to the Restoration Games line up!! So sorry about that, everyone. 😬

I will at least provide links to the original Kickstarter so you can triple-verify the contents of this pledge level. 😅

The link is HERE. A link to the BGG page for is below in the grid per standard protocol… I haven’t gotten THAT lazy 😉

I promise to try and do better in the future… just juggling a lot right now. 🙏

Argh! 🏴‍☠️🌴🍹🏯❤️

Return to Dark Tower… like ALL Restoration Games productions… this one is sooo sweet! 🍯

For an age, the tower lay in ruins. Unbeknownst to the people of the realm, a great evil stirred in its bowels. It started with strange sightings: a flock of crows flying in circles until they dropped from the sky, the lake frozen solid in the height of summer. In time, they could not deny that which they most feared.

The evil had not been vanquished. The darkness would soon fall again. The tower will rise.

A “sequel” to the 1981 grail game, Return to Dark Tower is a game for 1-4 players who take the role of heroes. Together, they gather resources, cleanse buildings, defeat monsters, and undertake quests to build up their strength and discern what foe ultimately awaits them. When the heroes face the tower, the game shifts into its dramatic second act, where the players have one chance to defeat the enemy once and for all.

The game features cooperative and competitive play.

The game features traditional game mechanisms, such as engine building and resource management, paired with a technological interface unlike any seen before in games, including the titular tower, which holds more than a few secrets.
