Adventure Pack 2: Scourge of the Undead Queen

Adventure Pack 2: Scourge of the Undead Queen


Gorging on the castle’s unending supply of tortured souls, the Undead Queen calls to her service the corpses, skeletons, and spirits of the depths. If a prisoner should fall at the hands of her inexhaustible armies, all that awaits is an eternity of agonising undeath…

This expansion for Escape the Dark Castle includes:

  • 1 New Boss: The Undead Queen, a foul necromancer bent on enslaving your soul

  • 15 New Chapters: The Undead Queen’s terrifying forces, and new castle locations 

  • 3 Companion Characters: Vital allies to accompany you and aid in your escape 

  • 3 Companion Trigger Cards: Event cards which signify the arrival of a Companion

  • 3 Companion Dice: Used to carry out Companion actions and special abilities

  • 2 New Items: Each a powerful relic for the prisoners to discover 

  • 1 New Item Dice: Used to apply the powers of a relic

New Mechanic
This Adventure Pack introduces a new mechanic to the system - Companions. These characters can appear during a quest and join-up with the prisoners to assist in their escape. Fans of roleplaying games will know them by the term NPCs (non-player characters). Players will now encounter event cards in the item deck which trigger the arrival of one of the Companions. Each Companion has a unique mixture of traits and a special ability. They are powerful allies but their presence may be fleeting, so prisoners must choose carefully how and when to call on them. 

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.
