Fans of Themeborne are likely familiar with the company’s Escape The Dark series, which has also produced Escape The Dark Castle and Escape The Dark Sector in the past.

The actual mechanics of how The Last of Us tabletop game will operate are now unknown. Still, Naughty Dog has promised that further information will be available on November 8, one week from today.

The likely reason for the board’s intricacy is that designers wanted to guarantee that no two games could ever be played in exactly the same way.

is currently no information regarding the specific aspects of the video games that will be adapted for the film. Still, the first image reveals that players will have some control over what happens to Joel and Ellie.
