If you’re a fan of the famously brutal Dark Souls series, the board game version can bring a new level of pain.

The Dark Souls board game uses campaigns from the original Dark Souls (which has now been remastered for the Nintendo Switch, BTW) as well as Dark Souls III. And when you fall victim to the game’s traps, you’ll be returned to the bonfire – just like in the video games. The only difference between the original series and this board game is that you don’t have to go at the bosses alone. Just because you’re grinding alongside your friends doesn’t mean you’ll ever reach the final boss, though.

This challenging board game comes complete with over 250 cards and 27 miniatures, which means you can display them as well.

The board game was originally featured on Kickstarter, but now it’s available on Amazon for $189+. It offers a Dark Souls experience unlike any other. And since the series has officially ended (for now), you masochists may enjoy getting your ass kicked in a whole new format.
