Art of War Brings "Berserk" Brutality to Board Game

Art of War and Manindo team up for "Battle of Berserk: Board Game"

I've personally seen fist fights over games of Parcheesi, so I could only imagine the potential for violence involved with a game inspired by the brutal medieval horror/action Berserk. Art of War, known for their fabulously expensive statues, has gone for something a big more affordable this time with the release of a board game.

 

They've teamed up with Manindo, a Japan company which is professional in printing board games, to produce the product, coming this month for 4,000yen ($40).
