Based on the NY Times Bestselling Graphic Novel

As Allied forces fight the enemy on Europe's war-torn beaches, another battle begins in a child's bedroom in Brooklyn when the nightmarish Boogeyman snatches a boy and takes him to the realm of the Dark. 

In The Stuff of Legend, 3 to 6 players take on the role of one of the Boy's loyal toys, each with their own unique abilities. Players work cooperatively, scouring the Dark in search of the Boy before the Boogeyman can escape with him. Players beware, through the course of the game your allegiance may change, and at any point one of your fellow players could be secretly working against you for the wicked Boogeyman.
