The Legend of Zelda Board Game

Posted by TurtleGirl On August - 30 - 2011

We never knew that ‘The Legend of Zelda Board game‘ even existed, maybe we were too busy playing noisy Kerplunk to even notice at the time, I’m not sure, but apparently there was. This was recently spotted on lolwaitwat.tumblr.com

In the late 1980s games company MB often made licesned games based on popular cartoons. After the large success of the first two Zelda games they made a board game for 1-4 players based on the series. Set in Hyrule, the object of the game was to collect as many hearts as possible. Along the way you fought enemies (via special attack dice) losing or gaining hearts and uncovering treasure. Only a limited amount of the games were produced and a mint condition edition is apparently worth over $200 (£100).
 

There were playing tiles featuring objects and monsters, a board segmented into six sections (3 worlds and 3 dungeons), cardboard heart pieces, several dice and cardboard Link playing pieces. The box showed Link, Zelda and several monsters.
 

This seriously blows our minds that a game like this was even made at the time, but it must have been a big thing in the 80’s.
