The landscape was full of machines and scrap metal connected to the facility in one way or another. Always present on the horizon were the colossal cooling towers of the Bona Reactor, with their green obstruction lights. If you put your ear to the ground, you could hear the heartbeat of the Loop – the purring of the Gravitron, the central piece of engineering magic that was the focus of the Loop’s experiments. 


Step into the amazing world of the Loop. Tales From the Loop - The Board Game by Free League Publishing is set to launch on February 8. It will be available in the Free League webshop and in retail stores everywhere.

In the game, you and your friends play cooperatively to investigate the mysteries originating from the Loop, a huge underground science facility with strange effects on the suburban landscapes around it.

You take the roles of local kids that investigate whatever phenomena that threaten the islands (or perhaps just the local video store), and hopefully stop them. Each day starts at school, but as soon as the bell rings you can use whatever time you have before dinner and homework to go exploring!

Tales From the Loop The Board Game includes eight unique scenarios as well as six high-quality miniatures of Simon Stålenhag's robot designs.

Players: 1–5
Playtime: 1.5h–2h per scenario

Tales From the Loop The Board Game Trailer


Tales From the Loop The Board Game is based on the works by the internationally acclaimed visual storyteller Simon Stålenhag. The narrative art books Tales From the Loop and Things From the Flood, published by Free League, stunned the world with a vision of an alternate Scandinavia in the 1980s and ‘90s, where technology invaded tranquil landscapes to form an entirely new universe of the eerie and the nostalgic.

In 2017, Free League published the tabletop roleplaying game Tales From the Loop, which was a smash hit and went on to win five Gold ENnie Awards, including Best Game and Product of the Year. The tv series adaptation of Tales From the Loop has launched Amazon Prime Video. Now the time has come to return to The Loop.

Free League Publishing is a Swedish game creator and publisher dedicated to speculative fiction. We have published a wide range of award-winning tabletop roleplaying games and acclaimed art books set in strange and wondrous worlds.
