Description:

DOOM: The Board Game is strategy board game of tactical combat for 2-5 players based on Bethesda and id Software's video game of the same name. Featuring two distinct player roles, the game brings the epic battle between elite marines and Hell's most threatening monsters to the tabletop.

DOOM immerses players in a fierce battle between legions of demons - which are controlled by one invader player - and a cooperative team of up to four marines.

The game guides players through two cohesive operations, during which the marines strive to achieve objectives like restoring power to the United Aerospace Corporation's facilities or manning expeditions right down into the pits of Hell.

Meanwhile, the invader commands their demons to slaughter the soldiers time and time again in an attempt to protect their fiery domain and destroy all of humanity.

The game features custom dice, double-sided map tiles, and thirty-seven detailed plastic miniatures representing four marines and thirty-three demons. It includes two operations, Black Bishop and Exodus, consisting of six missions each.

In Doom: The Board Game, demonic invaders have broken through from another dimension into the Union Aerospace Corporation's Mars base. Marines have been deployed to the base to protect UAC personnel and destroy the invaders.

Up to three players will take the roles of heavily armed and highly trained marines, while one player will control the legion of demonic invaders.

In the game, the marine players explore the claustrophobic rooms and corridors of the Mars base, attacking monsters, picking up new weapons and equipment, and working together to complete specific mission objectives. …



Here are some other rules that you will use during a typical game.

Ammo (Marines Only)

In order to attack with any given weapon, a marine player must have at least one ammo token of the corresponding type on his ammo bin. Invaders can ignore the ammo rules entirely, as their attacks are different in nature.

The ammo required by a particular weapon is illustrated on the reference sheets. Weapons that show an infinity symbol (oo) do not require, nor expend, ammo. …



Attention! Red Alert!

Attention all Marines! Attention all Marines! Report immediately to the central command. If you are isolated from the main facility, seek out other marines, form squads, and engage the invaders with whatever means possible.

The weapons at the Mars base are limited, but should be sufficient for neutralizing the invaders. Although you will have trained on most of them, please read this downloadable weapons summary.

Weapon Designations

  • Fist

    The invaders are physically powerful. It is recommended that you only attempt unarmed combat with them if you have no other choice. …



Alert! Alert! Alert!

All UAC personnel be advised. There has been a code red security breach in the dimensional gateway research facility here at the Union Aerospace Corporation's Mars base. We are under invasion. I repeat, we are under invasion.

Our cameras have picked up a number of unusual entities roam- ing the corridors and rooms of the base. We have compiled the following information about the various types of invaders that we have observed so far.

Species Designations

  • Zombie

    These invaders appear to be UAC personnel who have somehow been possessed. They are slow, extremely numerous, and seem to have gained an uncanny strength. …
