I haven't immersed myself in a horror board game in a while. I really enjoy the immersion of a horror game, collaborating in clue-hunting and survival in the dark. There's a title I have been keeping an eye on recently, which places players in a cooperative experience, journeying through pitch black by dim candlelight. Their biggest hope is to escape the monsters that dwell in the darkness when the flicker goes out.

The Night Cage is set to be released this month, as 1-5 players become confined in a fearsome labyrinth as lost souls in the hunt for their key to escape! As players lay tiles to guide themselves across the maze, they will be aided with a flickering candle for a slight bit of vision ahead. However, this candle has a limited life span meaning players could face the ferocious Wax Eaters ready to pounce as darkness strikes for advantage.

Fortunately for players, these monsters do not seem to like the light very much - as fragile as the candle may be! Players must find their keys and escape as a group to win or be lost to darkness, and the Wax Eaters!

The game takes 40-60 minutes to play through, depending on how many lost souls are committed to an eternity of darkness. You can pre-order The Night Cage at your FLGS or purchase online if you're here in the UK, or snag yourself a copy in the US now via the Smirk & Dagger website.
