About the event
Spooky Workshop Wednesday is our event where we teach you a few games from our collection.
In celebration of the Spooktober Event, we are teaching and playing Night Cage, The Hunger & Mystery Express.
Night Cage: 7.2
You awaken in the dark, your skin cold, your mind blank. You have nothing but your fear, a flickering candle, and a question: How long will your light last?
Trapped and crawling your way through a pitch-black labyrinth, equipped with nothing but dim candles, you must work together to explore the maze and escape. Unfortunately, your weak candlelight illuminates only your immediate surroundings. Worse still, horrifying Wax Eaters — monsters who despise the light — lurk in the suffocating darkness for their opportunity to strike.
The Night Cage is a fully cooperative, horror-themed tile-placement game that traps 1-5 lost souls within an unnatural labyrinth of eternal darkness. To win, players must each collect a key, find a gate, and escape as a group.
Escape won't be easy as each player's visibility is limited by the weak light of their candle. They illuminate only tiles directly connected to their own, and when players move, tiles that fall into darkness are removed from the game. Doubling back the way you came only opens new paths, the old ones being lost forever with critical keys and gates vanishing if your light moves away from them...
The Hunger: 7.2
The Hunger is a race in which each vampiric player must optimize their card deck, hunt humans to gain victory points, fulfill secret missions, and eventually acquire a rose and return to the castle before sunrise. The more you hunt, the slower both you and your deck become, which will make it harder and harder to get back before daybreak. Can you become the most notorious vampire without burning to ashes at sunrise?
During the game, players spend "speed" to move their vampires around the map, hunt humans worth victory points, and add new cards to their deck.
The game ends at dawn, after which the surviving player with the most victory points on their cards wins!
Mystery Express: 6.6
In Mystery Express, players board the famous Orient Express in Paris just as a murder occurs. The rest of the trip - through Strasbourg, Munich, Vienna, Budapest, and Istanbul - is consumed with determining the who, what, when, where, and why of the crime. This game explores the more analytical side of the "whodunit" genre, rewarding a logical and more precise approach to solving the crime.
Players use their special powers of deduction, information gleaned from other passengers (and the conductor) in the train cars, and investigative actions to determine the exact circumstances of the murder. The player who correctly identifies the most elements of the crime by the time the train reaches Istanbul wins the game.
