This is a perfect sequel to Horrified Universal Monsters. The board is a little more modern and pieces are great. Lots of fun with friends.

This game is awesome. We also like the original and this one is similar but with some new stuff. I like the art a lot and the new monsters. There are so many typos and errors in the text though!

Fun but the same

3 out of 5 stars

So I’ll start with the pros: This game is fun, just like Universal Horrified was. The artwork is amazing. The lore and creature objectives are great as well! The minis look super cool. Having to lure the monster to you is a nice change in gameplay from the first game. The new item bag is a great improvement. Basically, this game is a good game but it does have a predecessor to be compared to and it may not completely live up to that. The cons: 1) Typos in the directions. Police Station item chip with no Police Station. 2) The Overlays are much less cool. 3) The picture icons at the bottom of the Monster Cards are not as cool either. 4) The rules are a just a smidge more complicated than Universal Horrified and these changes feel like they break the flow of the game. I have to remember: where to go to beat the Jersey Devil, how many cursed hits to take, how many moves I have after calling in a Citizen, Bigfoot rolls first and remember to place the footprints. (Maybe it’s something I’ll get used.) 5) You need room for practically a whole other board game to play against the Jersey Devil. And the game feels 35% shorter with so many less Monster Cards to draw from. 6) Having to lure the Monsters to you is cool but it can make for boring end-game. Maybe a ‘taunt’ action could’ve been included to speed this up. 7) All the Monster Tokens for the game are so small. Universal Horrified had at least some medium to bigger pieces to play with. My eyes wind up not being able to focus when there are so many little things around the board to look at. 8) The Item Tokens’ colors are less bold on these tokens and the text on the Monster Mats and therefor require more strain to see. Overall, I highly recommend if you are a fan of the first board game or of the Monsters included in this set. I am both! Born and raised in New Jersey, I was hype to play against the Jersey Devil. However, he’s actually my least favorite. Go figure! It feels like they made changes to and for Horrified American Monsters but not enough. I would’ve maybe liked a new mechanic to the game that didn’t feel as jarring as the ones they did include or just keep it mostly the same. I’m glad it wasn’t just a copy paste of the last game though so maybe I shouldn’t complain. Hopefully, Horrified 80’s Slashers (please?) will feel a bit fresher.

really fun and challenging game. requires teamwork and strategy. grab this version before it's gone. Universal Monsters add to the fun factor. this has been slowly disappearing from shelves in favor of a new release without these classic monsters.

Terrifically Horrific

MrJack - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
A bit of a re-skin of the original Horrified game, this game is STILL fantastic. The theme, the rules, the gameplay, the CO-OP, and the monsters! It's scalable and that really helps with replay-ability. All just in time to enhance your holiday party with cryptids!

For fans of the original universal Monsters - Horrified, buy this!! You will love it. Monsters are a little tougher but there are fun twists with these monsters. The game is true to the original in ways you love but the monsters make it completely new and different.
