The coolest game to ever hit the planet first appeared some 38 years ago, featuring an electronic tower that lit up, played music, and somehow ran an epic fantasy adventure game with its state-of-the-art technological wizardry. That game was Dark Tower. And now Restoration Games is bringing you that same sense of awe and wonder, pushing the boundaries of what a board game can actually do. After 3 years of painstaking work by a team of two dozen designers, engineers, and artists, they are thrilled to present to you a game with echoes of that long-gone wonder but ultimately unlike any game you’ve ever experienced.
The Return to Dark Tower campaign is new closed on Kickstarter but the details are still available for you to review. Note that that game is not expected to ship until early next year (estimate is February 2021, and for what it is worth, Restoration Games was spot-on with the timing of their Fireball Island Kickstarter). And I’m Board is offering our customers the chance to back the game through us, and get the “Coin of the Realm” add-on for FREE! Read on for all the details.
The Kickstarter features two pledge levels:
- The Charge the Tower pledge level includes one copy of the “Return to Dark Tower” base game with all included stretch goals and freebies. Once you add shipping costs, backing direct has an estimated total price of $143.00, plus any add-ons and their respective shipping charges, paid at the end of the campaign.
The Azkol’s Fortune pledge level includes the base game, the “Alliances” advanced game expansion, the “Dark Horde” miniatures pack, “The Coffers” token upgrade kits, plus all included stretch goals and freebies. Once you add shipping costs, backing direct via Kickstarter has an estimated total price of $247.00, plus any add-ons and their respective shipping charges, paid at the end of the campaign.

Simply call your local I’m Board location to add your name to the list. Scroll down to find our phone numbers. Because we do not need to get our final orders in until long after the Kickstarter ends, you have a bit of time to adjust your order.
