Bump In The Night
From the Publisher...
Happily lounging in their haunted house, the monsters wait for new victims to prey upon, waiting to feed on the psychic energies of fear. It is a rare treat when the foolish mortals enter your halls of doom, but luckily today is such a day! A large group of kids has decided to spend the night in your halls, daring each other to face the terrors until the break of dawn. Dawn will not come soon enough to save them, the only question that remains is which group of monsters will terrorize them the most!
In "Bump In The Night" 2 to 6 players each play a group of six monsters that they will use to terrorize people in the haunted house. If enough terror is generated in a person, or if a person is forced to flee the house, the player claims the person for a point. Points can also be gained through special bonus cards. The first player to have five or more points on their turn wins the game.

|I love games that let you take the role of the villain, and in Bump In The Night, you get to control a group of monsters. I think this game has one of the best themes I've ever seen, and it just makes you want to jump in and play immediately - which is of course also helped by the great miniatures. But it is not all appearance - Bump In The Night is actually a very clever game that plays a bit like an an abstract, but is actually dripping with theme. Perfect for a Halloween gaming event.
|It is difficult to describe Bump in the Night, since it plays very differently than any other game I have tried. At heart, it is a puzzle game, where you try to maximize the abilities of several monsters (your own and your opponents). This is a good brain burn that really requires you to think ahead and plan well. I'd recommend it to any puzzle game fan looking for something new to try - because it really feels innovative and fresh.
|It is difficult to describe Bump in the Night, since it plays very differently than any game I've tried. It is basically a puzzle game where you try to maximize the abilities of various monsters (using both your own and your opponents'). The great fun comes from finding that long chain of scares that maybe requires thinking 5 or 6 steps ahead - which is something I rarely see in other games. I'd highly recommend any fan of puzzle games to try this.
