Game Info

When Mother Moon created the sun, she also inadvertently created something twisted: the celestial snake Darkness.

Darkness knew only bitterness and jealousy, hating those things which it did not have. In its jealousy, it rose up and swallowed the sun, plunging the world into a perpetual twilight. It is now up to the heroes of the Tribes of Man to gather the lost spirit weapons and hunt down the great snake in order to save the sun and their world.

Darkness Comes Rattling is a cooperative board game for 2-6 players that follows the story of the Tribes of Man in their quest to save the world from corruption and Darkness.

Each player will guide a mighty warrior and traverse a world of shadows, spirits, and other dangers as they combat the coming night.

Will you make the ultimate sacrifice? Will you become a mighty warrior, able to fight off corruption? Do you have what it takes to face the Darkness?

Expansion: War of the Spirits

War of the Spirits is a digital-only expansion for Darkness Comes Rattling. It includes a quest system for the game that allow the players to take on Darkness in a new way, adding new difficulties to the game.

Players can now take on Darkness directly as a group, foregoing venturing inside the snake to free the Sun. To do this, they must gain the Winds' Blessings and keep the world pure. The better the players do, the weaker Darkness will be when it is forced to manifest on Tallil.
