About the game:
The Box of Delights – The Roleplaying Game is an adaptation of John Masefield’s Christmas children’s classic, written by Jonathan Green and illustrated by Tony Hough – the creators of ‘TWAS – The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas – and licensed through The Society of Authors, the Literary Representative of the Estate of John Masefield.
The Box of Delights – The Roleplaying Game is a rules-lite RPG, designed to be picked up and played with minimal preparation. Players take on the roles of Kay Harker and the Jones children as they experience the events of the book first-hand, encountering the mysterious Punch-and-Judy Man and becoming embroiled in the sinister plot being perpetrated by the wizard Abner Brown and his coven of wolf-worshipping witches around the Winter Solstice in the run up to Christmas.
The Box of Delights – The Roleplaying Game is ideal for a festive gaming session with an established group, or even as an alternative to the games usually played on Christmas Day.
