An intersectional feminist dungeon crawler set in a library
Library Labyrinth is a co-operative board game set in a library. Something very strange is going on, and dark and mysterious things are hiding among the shelves. The only way out is to ask the characters in the books for help….
Players call on historical and fictional women for help. Each character has a set of special skills which help defeat the terrible things lurking in the library. The players need to work together to build the right team to find the way through the maze of bookshelves and escape the library.
About the team
We’re a group of women with a mixture of backgrounds and experiences. At the moment there are five of us, although the team may grow… Find out more about who we are here.
