Based on the novel series written by Markus Heitz, The Dwarves is a scenario-driven, cooperative, dice-based fantasy adventure game. Launched in German in 2012, the game was featured as part of Kickstarter’s expansion into Germany in 2015 when the company sought to raise funding for an English language version and The Saga Expansion (see “Board Game Highlighted in German Kickstarter Launch”).
Since it’s release, the game has spawned four expansions: The Saga Expansion, the New Heroes Expansion, the Combined Might story expansion, The Triumph of the Dwarves story expansion, and the Alfar Expansion. The Dwarves: Big Box will include the complete base game and all four expansions packaged in a single box.
Pegasus is also giving the “big box” treatment to Hansa Teutonica later this year (see “Pegasus Spiele Will Release ‘Hansa Teutonica: Big Box’ to U.S. Retail”).
