Miniatures of folk heroes and fearsome critters for the tabletop board game Fearsome Wilderness

Paul and his friends are dropped off at a beach on a pristine lake but the neighboring forest is not as they expected.

The trees, having a will of their own, seek to defy these heroes of folklore.

Some gnarled with large burls and knots, others iridescent and screaming, newly planted trees grow full size overnight but quickly begin to rot.

Each day brings winter closer and shelter more crucial. All this and who knows what fearsome critters may lurk in the night 

45-90 minutes per game session enthralling 1-4 players with action-packed campaigns lasting 12-24 sessions.

Countless hours of gaming and hobby enjoyment designed for miniature or rpg enthusiasts as a platform to apply their own creativity.

A community-focused approach with expertise embracing fan made content for over 15 years.

5 core miniatures and over 25 different 3D printable critters to indulge painters and captivate collectors

Lumberwoods.org says “Fearsome Wilderness succeeds where few others of its type have by having something truly original to offer. Its premise of establishing a homestead in the frontier wilderness, besieged by natural and unnatural hazards, is both unique and inspired. The incorporation of American folklore, under a tone of darkness, is perfectly balanced with its historicity and stays true to the original tall tales that inspired it. As well, its debut of North America’s “fearsome critters,” tall tale monsters, to the genre of board games is long overdue and a welcomed addition to fans of games and mythology alike.”


@fenpaints say “Can I recommend this game to you? Well if you enjoy a tense, thematic cooperative experience with some wonderful and unusual creatures, absolutely, yes!”
