Cave TrollThis week, Fantasy Flight Games announced the upcoming launch of the third version of its adventure board game Cave Troll.Two to four players embark on a 20 to 60 minute action packed adventure in search of gold and treasure in an ancient dungeon. Gather your team and head for the hills.

You won’t be traveling alone. Each player controls a team of heroes and monsters. Place your adventuring team in strategic places throughout the dungeon to both find and defend your loot. Use heroes to track down treasure chests and monsters to keep opponents at bay.

The goal of the game is to collect as much gold as possible. Players take turns advancing inside the dungeon. On each turn, players have four actions. Draw a card, play a card to bring a monster or hero into the dungeon. Move a hero or monster to an adjacent room, or use one of your team’s special abilities.

When it comes time to grab the goods, don’t be too hasty. Your heroes have special abilities that will increase how much gold is scored from a treasure. For example, the Dwarf knows a lot about treasure and if he is in the room when the loot is discovered, his ability will make the booty more profitable.

Players are also in search of special artifacts that will help them win the game. Throughout the dungeon, hidden artifacts can be found, like the Chalice of Life, which restores one of your heroes back to life.

Cave Troll included the following components:

  • One game board
  • 104 player cards
  • Six artifact cards
  • 68 plastic figures
  • Four gold counters
  • Four reference sheets
  • One rulebook

The game is expected to be out in the third quarter of 2015 with a suggested retail price of $34.95.
