In this game, each player plays as a different character (with different special abilities) trying to help a village survive attacks from any number of several “classic” monsters while trying to complete certain tasks needed to defeat the monsters. As in all cooperative games, the players play together against the game itself. They can all win by meeting the winning conditions or lose in a number of different ways. The game is similar to another cooperative game called Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, which is excellent but which did not get a lot of attention when it came out. Reign of Cthulhu, however is a hard game and you are likely to lose more often than not. In Horrified, it is much easier to control the difficulty level and it is not difficult to win when played against certain combinations of two monsters. The game can be set to a higher difficulty level by adding monsters or by selecting the monsters that offer more of a challenge to defeat. Horrified also does a slightly better job than Reign of Cthulhu in driving the theme of the game across. There are a lot of thoughtful little details in Horrified that those of you who have watched the classic horror movies will recognize (from the names of the Villagers, to the items the players collect to defend against, and attack, the monsters, to illustrations in some of the cards, etc.) Also, not everyone is familiar with the Cthulhu stories, but everyone (even younger kids) is familiar with Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolfman, the Mummy, Dracula and the other monsters in this game. A game with four players should take about one and a half hours, which I think is perfect for a family game. All in all, I have enjoyed the game and look forward to playing it again with different combinations of monsters.
Unfortunately, the game is not perfect and the biggest negative for me is the low quality of the components. The cards are really flimsy. You will want to sleeve them if you are going to play the game a lot, which adds a cost to the cost of the game. But the most disappointing is the quality of the monsters’ mini figures. They are made of cheap molded plastic. When I opened my copy of the game, I noticed the mummy had been in the box pinned under the weight of other components and was bent over looking like it was falling over. Dracula is also bending forward a little bit (looking like he is hovering over someone with this cape). I contacted Ravensburger and they graciously agreed to send me a replacement. But because they sent it in an envelope, the poor mummy was again crushed along the way and the replacement was in even worse condition than the original (see the photo). It barely stands up. I am not going to return the game because of a crappy figure, but being a big player in the board game market, Ravensburger should know better. Lastly, with so many cardboard pieces and the fragile figures, the box really needs a good insert that would let you organize the components and keep the figures from getting crushed. I now spend a lot of attention at how I place the figures back in the box because I am afraid they will bend while the game is not in use. I own at least one other Ravensburger game, by the way, so I am not trying to pick at them. On the contrary, I am saying they are a good company (and their customer service is great) which is why I am surprised at the low quality of the components in this game which I think will be a very popular game.
I don't mind owning both Reign of Cthulhu and Horrified, but if you already own and love Cthulhu and play it often, this one might be redundant. But if you are looking for a more accessible theme, particularly for younger players, and particularly around Halloween, you want to consider Horrified.

– Just about the right length playing time
– High replayability value because you can create different combinations of monsters to play against

– Can be played solo
– Fragile monster figures
– No box insert
– Low quality paper cards
HOWEVER...if you are a super geek (like me) when it comes to these films you will LOVE THE HECK out of this game. There are so many nice little touches to evoke memories of the great catalog of Universal monster movies from the '30's, '40's and '50's it would be hard to point out the best. Hmmm...nope, I can point out the best; as soon as you open the box you're greeted with...nah, I can tell you, but I won't. I don't want to ruin the nice little surprise. You will smile.
This game was obviously a labor of love, and playing it is a total blast.
I don't get all that impressed with that many games, but this one quickly caught my fancy. It checked several boxes:
1. The game components are interesting, plus of acceptable quality. Some of them, like the plastic monsters, are very cool.
2. It has loads of atmosphere. The game board has a look and locations that will evoke the movie genre of its scope. The monsters all have different mechanics, both in how they interact, and how they may be defeated.
3. Even though there are a variety of things you may do in a turn, they all make sense and are quick to undertake. This makes the game fast moving.
4. The objectives and the game elements used to achieve them are straightforward enough that "analysis paralysis" isn't going to be an issue. You won't be waiting long between turns, and even occasionally have something you can do on another player's turn.
5. It's simple to learn, and even during my first trial play through to get familiar with the game before introducing it to friends, I didn't have any questions come up that I didn't find an answer for in the rules. VERY unusual. LOL
6. And since the game is simple to learn and play, our friends who are casual gamers will enjoy it. I don't have to wait for "hard core" gamer friends before getting it to the table.
I actually highly enjoyed even my first trial game to learn the rules and get the flow of the game action.
With Halloween coming up, this is a no-brainer for small groups or even to get out at parties. The game goes quickly enough that if you desire, you can probably get two, three, or even four plays in an evening.
Obviously -- recommended.
I liked it could be played with 2 player rules but can expand to 5 players. That way we can play as a couple or with our game night pals.
The best part of this turned based strategy game was that one player plays the dinosaurs, which really just want to eat the other characters.
The other player (or players) play familiar characters from the movie that all have specific skills (like distracting the dinos by screaming and sneaking way, or rescuing your friends, etc). There are two ways to win. The people win if they can get a couple of their group off the island via the helicopter pad (some sacrifices must be made for the better good) or the dinosaurs win by... you guessed it... eating delicious intruders.
The game board is random and the characters switch out, which meant that each play was unique so there is a high replay value.
We had a blast :)

En casa lo jugamos y nos divertimos desde que se sortean los personajes (obvio nadie quiere ser Nedri) pero al final cada rol tiene sus características. Otro aspecto interesante es que uno de los jugadores manipula a los dinosaurios y es un juego de todos contra el.
Lo compre en una oferta y no me arrepiento ni un momento, el envío fue cumplido y llegó bien.
Je n'ai joué que le requin mais les joueurs m'ont dit avoir eu beaucoup de plaisir, et les match sont toujours très serrés.
Jusqu'à present 4-1 pour Jaws avec différents groupes d'amis mais chaque victoire aurait tourné en défaite au tour suivant si Jaws avait manqué son coup pour fracasser le bateau.
El tema me gusta muchisimo, permite crear una atmósfera tensa pero al mismo tiempo familiar. Es un relacionable el huir o combatir a los monstruos ya conocidos por todos.
Sin duda un gran juego que saldrá repetidamente a la mesa.
Podrian poner una nota en caso de productos de uso.
