I’d never come across this until the XLBS about kickstarters piqued my interest in what’s available right now on kickstarter, and I saw the expansion Kickstarter for Escape the dark castle.

That lead me to the let’s play (embedded within the kickstart page itself) and I have to say it looks great fun. Particularly for playing with family or non gamer friends who dont want to learn complex rules. And the most of all it seems to have a whole lot of replay value.

Yes, I saw the play through, and have wanted a copy of this game since it launched. It’s definitely on “the List”, and ranked quite highly.
The art is so perfectly old school, and the “ad” they made… the best!

This looks like a fun game. Maybe a good travel game as well.

I have this and the expansion set. It’s a lot of fun for a group to play that don’t feel like setting up a bigger game and just want to get to it. All the flavor of doungening without the extra work of dragging out lots of books and other stuff.

I really like this game. The old school feel to this game really kind of brings back memories.

This sounds interesting. I like the retro art style, reminds me of Cave Evil, which is a good thing.

I first played this at the expo in 2017, my mate had to buy it, and we sat in the bar and attracted lots of random interest and people joining in the games. it’s a great mix of rpg and atmosphere with the interesting dice mechanic to keep it a bit random, but always having to think which of the bad choices is the best.
really good, and a great game to play through a few times whilst not needing to really invest time, good for casual and experienced gamers.

The way Warren talks about it makes it that much more interesting. I’ll have to check it out.

Warren’s excitement about this game on the last weekender brought me here and I’m glad it did. This looks really cool!
