Archon The Board Game #3DxGames #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Guest curator Zheng3 has this to say about Archon The Board Game:

And one decidedly retrolicious set, first among equals, deserves special mention:

The Commodore 64 version of Archon was responsible for helping me squander a significant fraction of my misspent youth, and now it’s been turned into a 3D printed boardgame with the express written permission of Free Fall games, the geniuses behind the original software. Squee!

If you’re not an Old Person and you’ve never heard of Archon, you can play the original in-browser, on your phone, or with whatever tech with which the kids be SnapChatting these days. Also, get off my lawn.

Archon: the Board Game by spelpappan:

This is the physical version of computer game cult classic Archon: the Light and the Dark to Atari 8-bit computers. The original game was made by Free Fall Games (former Free Fall Associates) in 1983 and they still own the IP.

These files have been published here with the explicit consent of Free Fall Games. The original game of Archon, its characters, and its graphics are copyright © Free Fall Games and may not be used publicly without their approval.

In fact, mr. Jon Freeman himself said “We think they are marvelous” 🙂

This set does not include a game board; an Archon game board is 9×9 squares (chess is 8×8) and if you would like to print one, I recommend wulfdesign’s module-based board set.

Rules for Archon: the Board Game are in the making. Feel free to play with your own set of rules, or wait until mine are tested and ready.
