Sanctum board game

Sanctum, once a great city, is now shrouded in darkness. The lands surrounding the city are home to the demon horde lead by the Lord of Demons. It’s up to a handful of heroes to rise up, battle through the horde, banish the evil that plagues the world, and restore the realm to its former glory.

Sanctum is an epic adventure competitive game for 2-4 players that's inspired by the hack & slash genre and converted into a modern board game. As one of the heroes, you embark upon a quest to rid the land of a demonic invasion, fighting your way through countless enemies and gearing up to face the Lord of Demons himself. In the process of venturing deeper into the land, ever so much closer to the Demon Lord, the heroes have to improve their equipment and adapt their combat tactics to face the increasing difficulty of combat.

The seemingly simple dice-throwing mechanism turns out to be a tactical delicacy once you realize that equipping the correct gear is a crucial part of surviving in these hostile lands...

  • Ehh I find the game lukewarm after much excitement of a Diablo-esque game. Too many "ok" things going on but not a lot of great things either. This game feels like a solid first draft that needs another few rewrites for it to shine. Ultimately, the idea to create a super Diablo lite board game requires too much sacrifices.
  • Played at Pax East as a demo. Really liked equipping my character with weapons and gear and I thought the dice placement was a fun endgame against the bad guy. I don't like the theme at all though. No real interest in playing in that world again.
  • I bought this for my sons birthday and it was awesome. He is 8 but has been playing games since he was 3 and regularly plays root with me but he needed little to no assistance in manipulating the dice and optimizing his gear. We got crushed on our first encounter with the demon lord but he had a blast playing I recommend this game for experienced players getting their video game friends to the table or parents who play lots of games with their children but want a balance between kid friendly and to heavy. I love it and can see myself getting this one to the table alot.
