Gave Horrified to my wife for her Birthday. 

The premise is that old Universal studios monsters are attacking a village.  The heroes need to get the villagers to safety and find a way to defeat each monster.  Monsters are invulnerable until the secret behind their destruction (say the Mummy, Dracula, Invisible Man) or their neutering (Wolfman, Frankenstein & Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon) are discovered.  Too many villagers die and the Monsters win.  Take too much time, and the Monsters win.

This is a mass-market game and thus relatively inexpensive.  Components are not as high quality as a game costing 2x to 3x as much - but the game has pretty easy rules, is fun, and is advertised for 10+ - which means a smart 2nd Grader could join in.  The game has a quick set-up and does not take forever to play.

As normal for my wife games, this is a cooperative game of the players versus the monsters.

I'll try to give a follow-up after we have completed several games.


Is that a board game or a tabletop roleplaying game?


I thought we were talking about the death metal/grindcore album by Repulsion.  :(

A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.
