It's a board game that you play in the dark. One player controls the lantern, the others control the 'Shadowlings.' Just like in flashlight tag, the lantern wants to 'freeze' the Shadowlings - freeze them all and the lantern wins. The Shadowlings win if they can all make it to the same tree.
I bought this for my 9 year old granddaughter. It takes a while to set up, and the directions could be better. It's a little confusing. She figured it out soon enough, and we played for a while, but she didn't seem to want to go back to it. The idea is clever (being a dark room), but kids need to pick up on it fast, I think, to make it fun. I think the die needs to be put under a light too often. You have to stop play to put it under a light so it will glow. The game isn't too bad, but I think it depends on how fast the kids understand the game or they will probably get restless.
One of our newest favorite games to play is Shadows in the Forest by Thinkfun. In this game you are either the shadow creatures or the lone person walking through the forest. It has such a fun story line and concept plus playing in the dark makes it so unique and different. It was tons of giggles as we tried to hide our little shadow people. It also comes with glow in the dark dice! We received this game for review but all opinions are our own.
I loved this game it has all kinds of twists and turns and i love the fact you can play this in the dark and you still can see. It makes it more mistrious which is always a good thing. My whole family loves playing board games we can spend hours playing. This is great as a Christmas Gift or Birthday gift. This is definitly recommeded by me and my family. Shadows in the forest is a game by think fun for children ages eight and up. This game you are in a deep dark engine forest with only a lantern take the white tile looming dark trees cast shadows all around you. I was saying you're hearing stuff all around you which scares you could the legends be true could there really be creatures hiding in the forest?
I love this game it is so much fun to play. My son loves the cute little figures and the lantern. I was sent this product free for review purposes and to share my honest option and I recommend this game to anyone who likes to play board games. I am so happy I was able to try this game its great for the whole family to play because my son is 5 years old and he was able to play this game with no problem.
