The Willow Game box

Box front of The Willow Game

The Willow Game was a boardgame designed by Greg Costikyan and manufactured by Tor Books.


In the game, the players divided into two groups: the Good characters, and the Evil ones. The Good players' aim was to keep the baby Elora Danan out of Bavmorda's clutches and take her to safety, while the Evil players tried to capture the baby, and take her to Nockmaar Castle.

The game came with one mounted gameboard, six character cards, twelve plastic pointers, six plastic stands, two plastic pawns, 144 playing cards, one twelve-page rules booklet, one cardstock display, two dice, a platform tray with storage wells, and the game box.
