Catacombs pits one player, who controls the Overseer and directs the monsters of the catacomb against all other player(s) working cooperatively as the hero(es) who attempt to defeat the Overseer. A fun, turn-based game of dexterity with each hero having a special ability. All players flick wooden discs representing monsters, heroes, missiles and fireballs to defeat opponents. Contact made with an opposing piece inflicts damage or another effect. Once a board has been defeated by the heroes they progress to the next board, this continues until the Catacomb Lord has been defeated at which point the heroes are victorious and win the game.

This popular, fantasy board game has won awards from BGG and Dice Tower for innovation and was recognised as Wired's and GeekDad's Board Game of the Year for 2011. We had great fun playing this game because you are trying to judge the weight, angle and strength of your flick; It is so easy to mess up a seemingly simple flick. Columns are placed strategically on the board which impede your attack so good attack coordination, utilisation of special abilities and clever ricocheting are imperative. This game looks attractive and feels rewarding to play, so if you have catacombs displayed it will gain attention from both families and adult groups alike.
