I picked up a copy from Skymall for under $20, and I've seen several online retailers that were asking between $15-25 for it. Don't get screwed by crazy high prices and shop around before you buy it.
I HIGHLY recommend this game!
The components were fairly colorful and well-themed. I’m not all that big on Lovecraftian lore, but the cards certainly had a monstrous appeal about them. The rules were easy to understand and we were well on our way within five minutes of opening the box. With that being said, we discovered that the game could be modified in a few ways to add some spice to the original rule set. For example, sanity checks could be compared with the cards left in a player’s hand after forming a word and not the word itself. If you eliminate the point threshold (one hundred points), you can simply play to see who will survive the longest. Feel free to make your own house rules! For those of you who are curious, the manual does list four other variants to try out so that players can mix things up.
While the game relies a bit on the dice to determine the results of a sanity check, it actually serves to give players some strategic choices. Players have the option of playing it safe with smaller words with less angles to increase their chances of passing the sanity check, though there are no guarantees. It’s very possible to lose a sanity check on a word score of three if the die hates you that day. By that same token, you can play larger words with a lot of angles in the hopes of inflating your score quickly, though you run the risk of being eliminated early on since sanity checks are harder to pass this way.
I’ll opt to keep this review short and sweet, mainly due to the ease of which this game plays. There aren’t any special gimmicks or rules…just you, the words you form, and sanity checks. It’s a simple concept that will attract players of all ages.Read more ›
