In recent years, a Swedish board game called 'Beast' by Studio Midhall from Malmö has gained global attention. The game is set in a mysterious world inspired by Nordic folktales, and it involves players strategically controlling a mysterious creature (Beast) or forming a team of hunters to track and defeat it. 

Designed by brothers Aron and Elon Midhall and their cousin Assar Pettersson, 'Beast' became a reality through a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2021, raising SEK 5.8 million (around EUR 515,000). The game is available in 13 languages and can be purchased worldwide.

Studio Midhall recently finished its second crowdfunding campaign and is now planning expansions and improvements to the original game. Among other things, Studio Midhall has a Spotify playlist featuring music that may enhance the gaming experience.

The game is set in a mysterious world inspired by Nordic folktales, and it involves players strategically controlling a mysterious creature (Beast) or forming a team of hunters to track and defeat it. <br><br>Designed by brothers Aron and Elon Midhall and their cousin Assar Pettersson, 'Beast' became a reality through a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2021, raising SEK 5.8 million (around EUR 515,000). The game is available in 13 languages and can be purchased worldwide.<br><br>Studio Midhall recently finished its second crowdfunding campaign and is now planning expansions and improvements to the original game. Among other things, Studio Midhall has a Spotify playlist featuring music that may enhance the gaming experience. <br><br>What's your favourite board game?"

The game is available in 13 languages and can be purchased worldwide.<br><br>Studio Midhall recently finished its second crowdfunding campaign and is now planning expansions and improvements to the original game. Among other things, Studio Midhall has a Spotify playlist featuring music that may enhance the gaming experience. <br><br>What's your favourite board game?"

The game is set in a mysterious world inspired by Nordic folktales, and it involves players strategically controlling a mysterious creature (Beast) or forming a team of hunters to track and defeat it. <br><br>Designed by brothers Aron and Elon Midhall and their cousin Assar Pettersson, 'Beast' became a reality through a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2021, raising SEK 5.8 million (around EUR 515,000). The game is available in 13 languages and can be purchased worldwide.<br><br>Studio Midhall recently finished its second crowdfunding campaign and is now planning expansions and improvements to the original game. Among other things, Studio Midhall has a Spotify playlist featuring music that may enhance the gaming experience. <br><br>What's your favourite board game?",
