The Dark Souls board game comes to Kickstarter

In the time it took for this Dark Souls board game to get crowdfunded, you probably died seven times.

A board game based on the immensely popular (and punishingly difficult) Dark Souls video game series hit Kickstarter on Wednesday. The officially licensed tabletop game reached its £50,000 funding goal in three minutes. I did say it was popular.

Designed by Steamforged Games, the board game adapts the strategic dungeon crawling and the fast, deadly combat of Namco Bandai's video games. And if you're a self-confessed board game nerd (guilty), the stunning miniatures alone are worth the price of admission.

While the cheaper early bird tier is gone, hack-and-slashers can still pledge £80 (around $115 or AU$150, plus shipping) for a copy of the game and included stretch goal rewards. Given that it's at the time of writing received over £300,000 in pledges, expect stretch goals aplenty.

You can take some time out from hurling vile obscenities at the screen while playing Dark Souls 3 and check out a gameplay video on the game's Kickstarter page.
