Game Night: October 27, 2011

06 Nov

This whole evening we played Halloween themed games.

Marcus, Ted, Brian and I played Fearsome Floors.

Fearsome Floors / Finstere Flure (or ‘Sinister Corridors’) is a game from Friedemann Friese:

The storyline attempts to continue the FFF-saga with the players trying to escape from Fürst Fieso. Story aside, what we have is a wonderful race game in which the players must move through a dungeon as fast as possible – or at least within 14 turns – before it crumbles over their heads.

This could be done in 7 turns if everything was peaceful and quiet, but unfortunately the dungeon is also the home of a very hungry monster!

Players must maneuver their disks through the dungeon trying to manipulate the movement of a monster who is always after fresh prey. Players can try to lead the monster to opponents’ pieces, but may find themselves eaten instead! Pieces might slide along blood slicks or be crushed between a boulder and a wall. You can even try to get the monster to teleport to another part of the board, where it will fall upon its next victim!

I won this game. However I think we were missing something it just did not seem to click with any of us.

The next game we played was Betrayal at the House on the Hill.

Betrayal at House on the Hill quickly builds suspense and excitement as players explore a haunted mansion of their own design, encountering spirits and frightening omens that foretell their fate. With an estimated one hour playing time, Betrayal at House on the Hill is ideal for parties, family gatherings or casual fun with friends.

Betrayal at House on the Hill is a tile game that allows players to build their own haunted house room by room, tile by tile, creating a new thrilling game board every time. The game is designed for three to six people, each of whom plays one of six possible characters.

Secretly, one of the characters betrays the rest of the party, and the innocent members of the party must defeat the traitor in their midst before it’s too late! Betrayal at House on the Hill will appeal to any game player who enjoys a fun, suspenseful, and strategic game.

Betrayal at House on the Hill includes detailed game pieces, including character cards, pre-painted plastic figures, and special tokens, all of which help create a spooky atmosphere and streamline game play.

I was the traitor and won the game beating everyone else.

It was a fairly large group that evening so there was another game being played while we played our two.

Anna, Dannis, Heidi, Allison and Eric played Fury of Dracula.

In this game of Gothic adventure, one player takes the role of Dracula while up to four others attempt to stop him by controlling Vampire hunters from the famous Bram Stoker novel.

Dracula has returned, and is determined to control all of Europe by creating an undead empire of Vampires. Dracula uses a deck of location cards to secretly travel through Europe, leaving a trail of encounters and events for the hunters that chase him.

Meanwhile, the hunters attempt to track and destroy Dracula using the limited information available to them – a task easier said than done when their prey has the power to change forms into a wolf or bat, and can even melt away into the mist when confronted.

To save Europe and rid the world of Dracula’s foul plague, the hunters must destroy Dracula before he earns enough victory points to win the game… will they have enough wit and bravery to defeat the dark count?

Anna played Dracula and lost the game, and the others were the winners.
