Product Description

Based on the first novel of the Die Zwerge tetralogy [Eng. The Dwarves] by author Markus Heitz, the goal of the cooperative game Die Zwerge is to keep evil from flooding Girdlegard. During set-up, players choose one of the dwarves from the novel, each of which is equipped with a unique special ability and different stats for fighting, crafting, and movement.

Take the roles of the five dwarves Tungdil, Balyndis, Boëndal, Boïndil and Bavragor, well-known characters by millions of readers of the German beststeller novel series The Dwarves by Markus Heitz. Save Girdlegard together! Complete quests, fight the evil forces, and influence the Dwarf Council. But most of all: Forge Keenfire and complete the last great quest…

The world of The Dwarves will come to life on your gaming table in this cooperative game due to its atmospheric illustrations and detailed plastic dwarf figures. There are several difficulty levels to choose from, from easy to heroic. Help these little brawlers to survive against Orcs, Trolls and Älfar! You shouldn’t tempt dwarves for fun, but this game tempts you to have fun with them!

Before each player's turn, the forces of evil usually break through one of the four big gates – which are guarded by different dwarven tribes – and further the spread of the Perished Land. On his turn a player spends two action points to use two of five actions. He can:

Fight against the advancing enemies (orcs, trolls, and älfar [Ger. albae], i.e. dark elves). Travel to other locations. Lobby the dwarven council to give advantages to all players – and without the favor of the dwarven council, everyone suffers disadvantages. Solve a minor quest for rewards. Take on the current major quest, revealing the next major quest if successful. Completing these quests is the only way to win the game. For most of these actions, a player must succeed in a dice-driven challenge. If the players cannot control the flood of evil while simultaneously solving the major quests in time, they will lose.
