Four Against Darkness is a solo dungeon crawling pencil & paper game written by Andrea Sfiligoi and published by Ganesha Games. It’s available in PDF format from Wargames Vault (which is where I got my copy) and also in printed or PDF format directly from Ganesha Games and from Amazon.
I picked this up when it first came out but hadn’t found the opportunity to play it. A quiet Sunday afternoon with wild winds outside finally provided an ideal time to read through the rules and give them a go.
The digital download includes a 90-page black & white game booklet with a colour cover. Some of the most frequently used play aids are also reproduced in a mini booklet format with eight pages on a single A4 sheet. I printed the full booklet (except the cover) on 4 pages per sheet of A4 and it came out perfectly readable. While it’s certainly possible to play just using the PDF, I think that given the need to flick back and forth around the text, that wouldn’t be ideal. As well as the rules, you need something to write with, some grid paper and two ordinary six-sided dice to play.
