In the game, you have 49 minutes to race around the board collecting each of six different colored keys. As you play, the Gatekeeper interrupts you and tries to prevent you from winning while verbally abusing the players. (It's done in a very campy style, all in fun.)
I found it difficult to keep track of what was going on in the game because of the frequent interruptions, although it was easier the second time around (which was at night because the boys declared the game not at all scary). Although the game's manufacturer claims that no game is ever the same, there is not enough variety in the Gatekeeper's actions to keep an adult interested past the third or fourth playing.
That being said, it would be a great game for a Halloween party. It's quite spooky. I'd like to try it on my son's friends after I set up the family room with black lights and spooky decorations. They'd definitely have a blast.
The game is much more fun if you end up racing the clock to beat the Gatekeeper. We were all on our feet during the last minute of play the second time through, cheering each other on and passing the dice as quickly as possible so one of us could beat the Gatekeeper. I was surprised at the teamwork evident at the end of the game. It was nice to see, after my son had tried everything to defeat me during the rest of the game.
I'd give this gane an age range of 9 to 14. Would I buy it again? Yes, but for a Halloween party or one of my son's Harry Potter birthday parties. Not for everyday use.
One reviewer seemed to think the game was boring. I'll guess, instead, that the people he parties with don't have the attention span for board games. Too bad for them. Atmosfear - The DVD Board Game get's a B+ from me.
If you've never played before you pretty much have a hexagon game board that is split into 6 areas of a different color. Each person picks a crazy Halloween type of character like a vampire, werewolf, poltergeist, etc. Each person writes a fear of theres on a piece of paper and places it into the jar that sits in the middle of the board. Each player takes turns rolling the dice and moving around the board collecting a colored key from each area. Once a player has 1 of each color key he/she must go to the middle jar and pick on out. If the fear belongs to the player then they win. If not they must return to their specific starting area that each character has and try to go to the middle again. You have 49 minutes to complete the game or else the Gatekeeper wins. The Gatekeeper is this creepy guy that shows up randomly on the TV screen and throws in twists to the game and makes some of the players do funny/ridiculous things at times.
Atmosfear is not a well known game so introducing it to your friends is fun. The game supports 6 players max which is good and can be a problem at the same time.Read more ›
This works perfectly. The menu asking who is playing so it customizes the responses? Perfect. Worth it. Thanks Pressman!

This game is simply a roll and move game, there is ZERO strategy and it is ALL luck. From the dice to the cards it is luck, and there is really no way to mitigate anything you do. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Robert
