Description Edit | History

In The Willow Game, you play one (or more) of the characters from the movie. Your characters are either Good or Evil. If you are Good, you must try to keep the baby, Elora Danan, out of the evil Bavmorda's clutches and take the child to safety. If you are Evil, you must try to find the baby, capture her, and take her to Nockmaar Castle. One of the Good characters starts with Elora Danan, but the Evil players do not know who. Thus the Evil players move around the board, searching for the Good characters and fighting them in an attempt to capture the baby.

The Good characters begin weak, but become more powerful as the game progresses. They move about the board, searching for Places of Power and gaining Treasures which make them more powerful or enable them to free people who will protect Elora Danan, which is one way for them to win the game. The other is to become powerful enough to defeat Bavmorda in combat.

More Information Edit | History

In the game, there are two places of power not mentioned in the movie. The first is Markath's Study. The second is the Standing Stones. According to the game's designer, Greg Costikyan, these locations were included for reasons of board symmetry, to have enough places to hold the treasure cards, and to make collecting all treasures a lengthy enough process to give the evil characters a greater chance of victory.
