Product Description

Tis the dawn of the 19th century; an age of science, superstition, and witchcraft. Howling fills the night as a full moon rises over the small, secluded village of Shadowbrook. Gruesome murders have become a daily occurrence and terror haunts the streets at night. An evil creature has taken up residence here and the countryside is engulfed by a tide of darkness. But all is not lost...not yet. A small group of heroic individuals, with the courage and strength to fight, have arrived in town. Some just passing through while others have come with a purpose; but all will be put to the test as they race to save this cursed town from falling into darkness. It will take a cunning mind and strength of spirit to determine who is friend and who is foe... to solve the mysteries and hunt the beast to its lair. But the secrets of Shadowbrook run deep. Gossip and rumors run rampant and these few Heroes may soon discover that they are outsiders here and this town is already so rotten from within there is little left to save.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun for an hour and a half 22 Oct 2012

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game. It's a quickly learnt, hour and a half of fast fun, moving around the board, battling minions, collecting equipment while the villain grows in strength the longer that you play. When you're ready, you start a big-boss showdown and (hopefully) win the game.
Three things make this game special:
1)The luscious illustrations and flavour text. These give the cards more emotional punch and play to the gothic feel of the game. Stakes, holy water and unholy secrets are all there.
2) The replay value of the various combinations of villains and heroes. Even without the (4?) expansions there are plently of variations in each game with vampires, werewolves and headless horsemen just the beginning.
3) The two play styles, cooperative and competetive. In the former game the master villain is much stronger but all the players work together (great with kids). In the latter you can play your cards to save villains when another player is about to win. This results in a more devious play style that I love.

The best game in the Flying Frog stable IMHO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great board game 10 Jan 2013
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this for my boyfriend for Christmas so we could have a board game to play with just the two of us that was co-operative (we both love board games, but competitive ones can lead to arguments!). You can play this game competitively, but so far we've only worked together. We've both really enjoyed playing this, it does take a bit of figuring out the first time you play it, but once you've got the hang of what's going on and what you need to do, it's very enjoyable. It becomes a fine balancing act between making sure you are super prepared to face the big evil, and waiting too long and having the big bad become very difficult to beat! so far when we've played it it's had the right balance of challenging without it being frustratingly hard. I wouldn't really recommend it for young children as it is a challenge, but for 2-6 ish adults it's wonderful. Game take 2-3 hours in our experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! 13 May 2013

Simply Awesome!
The components, the theme, the gameplay.

I really love this game. It's mechanics is somehow related to that of Arkham Horror, but a little bit lighter. It's a very thematic game, easy to learn, easy to teach but with enough subtetlies to grasp a hard gamer into it.

The game has a lot of different cards and needs time to set up and play. We have only played the standard rules and they are quite complicated. Not a game for casual players more of a challenge. Takes at least a couple of hours with 4 players. Good game nice combination of random and strategy.
