Escape from the Evil Garden, Gorey Board Game

Add to Cart








If you are a fan of artist and author Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) and his humorously unsettling drawings of vaguely Victorian innocents facing unfortunate ends, this board game is perfect for you!

Based on Gorey's classic book, The Evil Garden, this board game lets you join a party of unsuspecting gentlefolk fighting to survive an afternoon stroll in The Evil Garden. As you roll the die to make your way through the maze, you’ll encounter plants and animals that want to trap you, crush you, drown you, and carry you away. Search for the safest path, use your character’s traits to your advantage, and decide whether you’ll risk it all in order to sprint ahead. The first person to escape the garden wins!
