Many thanks to Trilobyte themselves from alerting myself to this wonderful piece of news, especially since I’d only really been watching the progress of the 13th Doll! As the team have given their classic game the board game treatment.
In the world of The 7th Guest: The Board Game, you re-enter the mysterious and magical Stauf mansion, filled to the rafters with diabolical puzzles, trivia, riddles and other mind games to test your wits and knowledge against your friends and family. But as with all haunted houses, know that you enter at your own risk. The goal is to emerge with your sanity – and your soul – intact.
The board game remains true to the original award winning computer game, although now you play the role of one of the six guests in direct competition with the other guests. Starting from the Foyer, you are randomly assigned destination rooms to which you must go, by roll of the Magic Die, and there, solve the mysteries and challenges within. Be the first to finish your tour of the mansion, arrive at the final destination, the Little Room at the Top, solve the final puzzle there, and you best your fellow guests and achieve your heart’s most secret desire. Which, for one thing, is to best your fellow guests.
To learn a whole lot more, go to Trilobyte’s Kickstarter page. or if you need to refamiliarise yourself with the story, check out GoG and Steam for both the 7th Guest and 11th Hour games.. you’ll be glad you did!
