Little modern RPG for 3 to 5 players and 1 GM about escaping a house. Rules are two pages, in the tri-fold leaflet style. Things that I liked; 1).The countdown, the players can see how many rooms left till they escape, which I would expect add to the tension, like the fact the number of rooms varies linked to the numbers of players controlling the difficulty level of the game. 2). The brief room descriptions, these are evocative despite their brevity. 3). Random item list, this being here amazes me how much they packed into such a small space – some of this list is a little vague, giving the GM some wiggle room with his imagination. 4). The six variations of the main ‘Terrible Thing’ enemy, (along with the shuffling of rooms) gives this a lot of replay value. Love to get this to the table at some point (five out of five stars from me).
