hi all. im now to the site. i love board games. i used to have like 100 of them when i was a kid before my family fell apart when i was 14. anyway, i need help identifying a fantasy board game i had as a kid. I don't remember too much about it but the main feature of the game was a mechanical tower that "morphs" your character. the tower had a leaver or something on it and when you put your character in it and pulled the leaver it spun on the inside and when you opened the little door you your character had been swapped for a different one contained within the tower. it would have been released in the late 80's or early 90's. thats about all i have to go on. hope someone here can help

My first thoughts were Dark Tower, Talisman or Enchanted Palace, but none of those match your full description. Did MB's Hero Quest board game from the late 1980s have this mechanic, I can't recall?

Try Tower of the Wizard King.


Quote:
The Wizard King is old and frail. After eons on the throne, he has made a final journey to survey his realm. Now he returns for the last time to his Tower, wherin lies the magic that makes one Wizard supreme over all others. For captured within is the magical Power of Transformation that allows a creature to enter the Tower as one self-- and emerge as another! An Elf of the Forests may be transformed into an Ogre of the Mountains. A Warrior from the Plains may become a Skeleton of the Swamps. Each of these creatures has his own special powers, special strengths-- and special fears.

That's gotta be the one. Copies on eBay in pretty good condition can be had for $20-25.
