By ONENEO VINE VOICE on January 21, 2010
You would certainly be forgiven for not having realized that Fantasy Flight Games released two separate board games based on Robert Zemeckis' 2007 telling of the classic tale Beowulf. Further contributing to the confusion is similarly inspired cover art for the game boxes and the fact that both were written by master game designer Reiner Knizia. About the biggest clue as to which you're getting involved with lies directly beneath the unmistakable Beowulf movie logo in the form of the game's subtitle. One is known as The Legend while the other, which we're talking about here, goes by the aptly appropriate name: The Movie Board Game.

To summarize the plot differences between the two incarnations of the franchise, The Legend takes on a more action-oriented role with the game's winner proving his valor and strategy to be worthy of kingly succession after the mighty Beowulf. The Movie Board Game, it turns out, is actually a theme-tweaked variation of one of Knizia's earlier Fantasy Flight titles, Kingdoms. Of course a simple comparison of the games' boxes reveals that the Beowulf incarnation must contain more of something to justify its increase in girth and indeed Beowulf The Movie Board Game (BTMBG from now on) does include a game board that actually consists of three separate play areas (acts in this case) in addition to a nice assortment of colored plastic figures to accompany the tiles, saga points, and reference sheets. The mechanics and principles, however, are perfectly preserved from 2003's Kingdoms.

The approach to success in BTMBG is to take the classic tale's worth at face value, literally as each player strives to tell the most epic version of the Beowulf saga to win.

Worst game ever. Bought for high school kids to enjoy as studying Beowulf. Very confusing instructions - not fun. Ended up having the students make up their own game and I just used the pieces from the game for the one the students made up.
