Nightmare Forest: Dead Run is a card and dice take on side-scroller games like Rygar, Mario or Pitfall. You and your friends are out enjoying an evening in the woods around the campfire when you notice a gentle breeze stirring the dead leaves that have fallen from the trees. With a building sense of dread, you have the unsettling feeling that those leaves aren’t the only dead things stirring in this forest. It’s a long way to the road and the safety of The City; your only chance at survival is to leave the camp… at a DEAD RUN!
Blinded and frantic, you blaze your own trail. Will you be the lone survivor to get back to the car and make it out alive?
As the monsters grow ever-tougher, your decisions on when to push forward, when to utilize the little gear you can get your hands on, and when to use others as critter-bait will be the difference between success or being devoured in the Nightmare Forest.
Nightmare Forest: Dead Run is a light-hearted and unique take on the zombie genre but don’t mistake that light heartedness for being easy on you. Careless risks will punish you but risks must be taken in order to be first out of the woods and win the game.
After more than 300 different people have played Nightmare Forest, everyone from heavy gamers to casual or even non-gamers has enjoyed this quick wind-up/wind-down game that still has some serious bite. The premise is delivered in a safe and campy (pun intended) way, making it perfect to play with kids, providing some thrills while also teaching them lite decision making skills and the risks necessary in order to succeed.
Nightmare Forest provides an entertaining and very thematic experience with some dice chucking and push your luck challenges that should produce some laugh out loud moments around the table.
