what a pile of wank.
next wild statement for my judgement please.
but it was the new DVD version. It's not half as scary as the old one. The Gatekeeper doesn't even go "YOOOU! THE ELDEST ONE! WHAT'S YOUR NAME? ...THAT'S A STUPID NAME!"
that I got for my birthday from a relative.
I thought it would be awesome, and it was a huge let-down.
I never got to play the one with the Gatekeeper, everyone was always going on about him though.
it was great. you had to write down your biggest fears and the winner got to find out what everyone was scared of.
and it rules.
And completely random at times - I remember one Halloween playing it and the guy who was in last place with five minutes to go wound up winning. And then with a minute left everyone screamed out loud as they all managed to get a card telling them to do so. Which came as a bit of a surprise to all of us...
The Gatekeeper was great - "WHOSE TURN IS IT NEXT? ANSWER ME!"
believe me, its not as cool as it looks.
and totally hilarious to play as an adult.
Kufu the mummy version - Mummy's don't talk!
Having said that, it does look better than many other contemporary board games such as:
This (even though it contains the words 'ninja army'):
And, my personal favourite, this:
Norwich is such a shithole.
it were immense
with Darth Vader as the 'gatekeeper'
that I owned ALL of these.
the gatekeeper one.
i think there was a zombie one, and some kind of woman with a stupid french accent.
it was good fun. but we were usually bored by the end of the game. and had given up playing.
though I remember being terrified of the Baron Samedi trailer at the end of the video...
