Kingdom Death: Monster is a cooperative board game that takes place in a dark and terrifying world filled with monsters and other horrors. The game is designed for 1-4 players, each taking on the role of a survivor in a community trying to survive in this hostile environment. The game is divided into a series of lantern years, with each year consisting of a hunt phase where players track down and battle a monster, followed by a settlement phase where players must manage resources, craft equipment, and deal with the aftermath of the hunt.

The game is notoriously difficult and unforgiving, with death being a constant threat for the players. The mechanics are complex and require careful planning and strategic decision making. The miniatures are beautifully sculpted and add to the immersive experience of the game.

Kingdom Death: Monster offers both solo and cooperative play options, and each game is different due to the modular board and randomized events that occur during each hunt. The game is not for the faint of heart or those looking for a casual gaming experience. However, for those willing to put in the time and effort, Kingdom Death: Monster offers a deeply satisfying and rewarding gaming experience.
