Legendary: The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride is a rare and precious film, one that combines action, adventure, romance and humour into an epic tale of love lost, found, and fought for. A cult classic. (Buy the film it's awesome!)

The Legendary Encounters system is a fantastic set of board game mechanisms that allow the developers to produce thematic cards games that evince the feel of the stories they tell in a marvelous way. (Check out "Legendary Encounters: Alien" and "Legendary Encounters: Predator", they're as awesome as the films they're based on!)

So here I present a combination of these two fantastic flavours! The Princess Bride transformed into board game form!

Here are a few cards from the game to give you a feel for what the game looks like :)

This game is a fan-work given away for free to all who want it. It is designed for either 1 or 3 players, although you might try 2 but I make no promises about that. You can download the files and print them yourself or use some independent print service. The game consists of a 10 page rule book, a board, and 218 cards. You can print everything in black and white or full colour, as you wish.

Download and enjoy :)

Download the Print and Play package  (if the direct link doesn't work try this )

Update! Following demand, I have combined the cards images into PDFs to aid printing at home.

Download the card PDFs

New Update : This replaces the previous packages. It includes a small addition to the rules, and five cards have been updated and these changes are necessary fixes! The following cards have been updated. 001, 003, 041, 043, 090

Download v1.1 or if that doesn't work, you can visit the download page here.

Edit: I've uploaded the cards to a series of 4 decks that you can purchase via  ArtsCow.com , you'll need to order 1 copy of each of each. (I've carefully looked over these decks but I haven't ordered them myself to proof check them).
