Beowulf: The Movie Board Game
From the Publisher...
Night after night, the murderous troll-monster Grendel stalks the Kingdom of Heorot. Every morning when dawn breaks, the Scyldings gather to find out whom the terrible beast has borne away in the night. The call for a hero goes out…
…and the mighty Beowulf answers.

|This is a 100% Abstract Board Game!
Okay, if you're still reading: it's a good abstract board game. You do not need to enjoy the movie (or have even seen it) to get your full experience out of this game.
This is essentially a tile laying game where you are constantly trying to evaluate the value of tiles, your character pieces, and the vacant spots left on the board in order to maximize your points through each of the 3 stages/boards. This game is great with adults or kids, and is actually a great way to reinforce arithmetic skills with the younger players.
