Therion - To Release New Board Game


011, the new fantasy board game from Scribabs featuring members of Therion will be released later this year... Wait, what?




The game 011, dubbed "An adventure by Therion", is designed by Marco Valtriani and based on a novel by Paolo Vallerga. The back-story can be read here (scroll down for English).

Commented mainman Christofer Johnsson: "Paulo Vallerga from the famous game developer Scribabs approached the band at the show in Milano last year with this great idea of making a fantasy boardgame based upon the stage characters mixed with mythology. And we instantly thought it was the coolest thing we've heard in ages and loved the idea! The name of the game is 011 and you will find me and the rest of Therion appearing as even more fantastic characters than we are in reality!"

Board game geeks can find more info on boardgamegeek.com. A music video accompanying the game is said to be released in June. Stay tuned, I guess.

Even if it did, I doubt they seriously think this will make them truck loads of cash.

Not if Megan's Law warns their parents first!





I can't wait to collect the whole "In The Desert Of" set.

Fair said, man.

Therion have always been extremely weird. No wonder they/their management have come up with such an idea.

Except that it wasn't their idea at all. As the report clearly states, the game developers approached Therion first. All Therion did was give their approval. Just saying.

Okay, then, my bad. That statement of mine was just an assumption, though.

A board game probably has never been applied to a metal band before (I'm not saying that it certainly hasn't, however). That's a pretty original undertaking.
