DON'T GO IN THERE + CRYPT = 2 NEW GAMES for BGALLOWEEN!

Post by DrClick »

Two releases on Monday? That's spooky!

Will you try to escape a spooky house OR send your servants down to the crypt to procure the best treasures?


Don't go in there (But you can try, for sure!):

You play as meddling kid wandering too far into a creepy haunted house. You knew you should not touch anything, but like any protagonist in a horror story, your curiosity got the best of you and now you have accidentally awoken an evil presence in the house. You will have to undo the curse to escape with your sanity or forever be haunted!
It's a fast, easy-to-learn game that uses push your luck "set destruction." Decide how risky to play as you venture deep into the haunted house. Do you take first choice of the items and risk attracting haunts, or play it safe? Collect the right items and you can dispel some of your curses.

On your turn, choose a part of the haunted house to explore by placing a meeple in one of the 3 rooms. Each room has 5 placement spaces. The deeper you go into a room the more likely you are to get the cursed item you desire, but be careful! The further you go, the more ghosts will haunt you.

When 3 meeples have been placed into a room, the ghost dice are rolled. Depending on the result the placement of the meeples players will gain ghosts tokens. Next players will take cards from the room, depending on their meeple's position.

At the end of the game. The player with the most ghost tokens is haunted! They will gain curses equal to the number of ghosts they have collected. Players will then add up the curses from their ghosts and their item cards.

The player with the fewest curses wins!

CRYPT (If you're brave enough!):

Crypt is a small set collection game with a unique dice placement mechanic for 1 to 4 players.

Place your servant dice on treasure cards, choosing any value on each die. Choosing a higher value can ward off your opponents, but it also increases the odds that your servant will become exhausted. After everyone has placed their servant dice, everyone rolls. If you roll less than your chosen value, you lose the die.

Sets of treasure can be pawned off to collectors that offer bonus coins and special abilities. The player with the most valuable collection wins!

We need to thank Jeff Chin and Andrew Nerger, the game designers, and R2i Games publishing for their authorization to bring the games online, as well as the huge work done by jordijansen (Don't go in there) & JohnMothra (Crypt) for developing them.
Yes, that's a ONE company release again, called Road To Infamy, and you have two reasons there to try their games online!

And... that's it for today!
Keep your doors open until Wednesday. It won't get scary anymore. But until then...
Take care and... play fair. If you dare! ;)

Really like Don't Go in There :)
As a simple set collection game, it works well with the theme and it doesn't overstay its welcome.

Just to correct the news post. I'm the developer of Crypt. I finished Don't go in There (to get it Live) after the original developer abandoned the project.

Had a look and Crypt doesn't have a one player (solo) option.
