-===About the Game<span id="ABOUT"/>===+[[Waddingtons]] produced this [[Dark World]] board game designed by Eamon Bloomfield. It was first published by ''Schmidt-Spiele'' in German as ''Das Schwarze Auge'' and then by ''Waddingtons'' in English in 1992. There were two follow-up expansions to the game: ''Village of Fear'' and ''Dragon's Gate''. The English-language version, strangely, makes no mention at all of ''The Dark Eye'' setting. The game sees up to 4 players explore a castle to find and defeat the 5th player who plays the evil Korak. The game was also ''re-skinned'' in 2009 as [[Underworld Battle]] and published in the USA by [[4Kids Entertainment]] with new figures but the same board and rules.
