Invaders in Dark Souls The Board Game are covered on this page. These are the game's representation of the invaders you come up against in the video game. Throughout the video game your character has a chance to be invaded by npc (non-player characters) phantoms, they react much like a player would; blocking, rolling to dodge, healing and of course attacking with vicious flurries of attacks. In the board game invaders are treated fundamentally similar to the mini-bosses, but as to when they turn up is very much an uncertainty. much like the mini-bosses, these battles can take place on the standard tiles that come in the core set.
