Speaking as someone who spent the mid-'90s pushing plastic figures across wartorn tabletops, I was surprised to discover that Chainsaw Warrior is based on a Games Workshop boardgame.
Even though I'd served as a Warhammer general, a Blood Bowl coach, and even a Gorkamorka boss, I'd never so much as heard of Chainsaw Warrior.
As it turns out, Chainsaw Warrior was a single-player boardgame released by Games Workshop in the late-'80s. Casting you as a man with a power tool, this devilishly difficult adventure tasked you with saving New York City from destruction at the hands of a malevolent entity known only as The Darkness.
Chainsaw Warrior boasts character and replayability in spades, but its lengthy, rock-hard play sessions aren't the best fit for portable play
