Library Labyrinth

Build a team of amazing fictional and historical women to put escaped literary horrors back in their books! Can the Lady of Shalott defeat Dracula? Or Heidi and Ada Lovelace overcome a Kraken? Can Nzinga and Mary Seacole deal with the Martian Robots from War of the Worlds? Sign up for our newsletters to hear more!

Library Labyrinth is a co-operative board game set in a library. It plays in about 45 minutes and is for 1 to 5 players.

It successfully funded on Kickstarter in March 2022, and is expected to be available in early 2023. If you have missed the Kickstarter but would like to pre-order, then sign up below and we will send you an email when pre-orders open. We are also running workshops in schools, libraries, and community centres! Click below to find out more.

Scroll down to find our newsletters, read more about the team, and see images of the game and how it’s developed.

See more images of the game here – from the very first idea to the game as it is now.
