Adventure Pack 1: Cult of the Death Knight

Adventure Pack 1: Cult of the Death Knight


Welcome prisoner, to a new era of The Dark Castle. The Death Knight himself, legendary swordsman and the one they call ‘Lord of Decay’, has risen to prominence. The weak and the mindless flock to his banner, twisted by his dark influence into powerful, feral fanatics. They say he sends curses to crawl into the souls of the weary. Beware the curses, prisoner. Beware the Death Knight…

This expansion for Escape the Dark Castle includes:

  • 3 new characters & their custom dice - each a powerful specialist

  • 15 new chapter cards – taking you to new areas of The Dark Castle

  • 1 new boss card – the Death Knight himself, Lord of Decay

  • 5 new item cards – introducing Curses, terrible afflictions to thwart your progress

A copy of Escape the Dark Castle is required to use this expansion.


Adventure packs are designed to expand and deepen your adventures.You must have a copy of Escape the Dark Castle to use one.

In terms of content, each Adventure Pack follows a similar format - adding new chapters, characters and items to the game. Each pack also introduces a new mechanic which brings a little more complexity - but these new elements are always optional.

You can play the chapter cards from an Adventure Pack in order (as in, not shuffled) as a standalone themed quest of it's own.

Alternatively, you can mix the new chapter cards into the contents of the main game for even greater variety.

If you change your mind later, you can easily separate the cards by set, using the unique codes subtlety printed onto each card.

The idea is that you can pick and choose before each game from among all the cards in your collection, which cards and rules you'd like to play with this time. So, you can tailor the game to your taste and level each time you play.

For example, maybe you want to play the chapter cards from the base set, but with the Curses mechanic from Adventure Pack 1, and also the Companions from Scourge of the Undead Queen. No problem!

Think of the Escape the Dark Castle range as something of a toolkit.

With the wealth of components at your disposal you can craft endless combinations of exciting adventures, and the organiser inside the new Collector's Box makes this easier than ever before.

The choice is yours!
