Dwarf King's Hold: Dead Rising is a two-player game in which one player controls the devious necromancer Mortibris and his undead forces, and the other player controls the stalwart Dwarves who oppose him and seek to reclaim their ancestral home from the living dead. The game is set in the echoing tunnels of an ancient Dwarf Hold whose generations of ancestral tombs attract the Undead as much as they inspire the Dwarf defenders.
The game includes six scenarios, each of which uses the tiles provided with the game to create a different board. In each scenario you control a number of miniatures representing your warriors or minions, which you move across the board and use to fight your opponent's miniatures to achieve the scenario's objective. Each scenario builds on previous ones, culminating in a huge, desperate battle which will ultimately decide who controls the King's Hold
Dwarf King's Hold: Dead Rising includes 32 plastic figures: five Dwarf Ironclad Warriors, two Shieldbreakers, one Dwarf Mastiff, twelve Skeletons, ten Revenants and two Skeletal Hounds.
