Find items, complete challenges, hone your psychic skills, and unravel the mystery of the House of Danger! Which adventure will you discover?
This game is do much fun. I really don't want to finish it, I want to play tge chapters over and over so that I know all the secrets and can solve every mystery of the house. I grew up with the books and really hope they will make more of these!! I'm 28, mom of three. can't wait till my kids can play too.
The instructions in the game claim that there should be a "bag" included to hold the cards, but the description here does not mention the bag. We found that weird. The writing is great though, and it's not always two choices, sometimes there's action moves before you choose the path you want to take. Unfortunately, the replaying will get boring since you know what's going to happen if you've already played, like the other review mentions. We like the books better but this is still a good game.
This is such a fun game! I played it with a group of friends that gets together every month to play board games, and we had a blast with this (even though our expectations weren’t all that high going in). The story is funny/campy and we didn’t want to stop. It’s basically cooperative storytelling and decision-making, with only a couple of rules, so it’s easy for anyone to pick up and play. Replayability isn’t super high, but it’s pretty cheap. I think I’ll get at least a few play-throughs of it (planning to play with coworkers next), then I’ll probably pass it along so someone else can enjoy it. I really hope they make more of these... I’d pick up the next one in a heartbeat.
This game is so fun! Started with Chapter 1, and then like a good Netflix show, couldn't stop ourselves from binging to the end. Definitely gonna play again and see what other crazy stuff happens if we choose differently.
If you love the Choose Your Own Adventure Books, you'll love this Game! It's a cooperative game, meaning you aren't playing against each other but with each other against the game. My 8 year old is an avid reader and he loved this game! The game is broken into 5 chapters and you don't need to play all the chapters at once if you don't want to. You are given a goal to achieve in each chapter, then given choices to make and risk/reward options to help you in your task. Each Chapter takes 30-45 mins to complete. Very enjoyable game. We took it on a road trip and actually played in the car-- The writing is very clever! My 8 year old played it a second time solo and he had a totally different outcome/experience. I hope Target sells more of these as there are so many books in the series! Loved IT!
