Staff Pick (Tim): This theme took me back to my youth, when in my area we had a local television show called "Nightmare Theatre." They would play one of the old Universal Pictures classics and they were scary to a kid. Now they are actually pretty tame compared to modern day standards of violence and special effects. I really enjoyed how easy it was to get new players into the flow of the game and how you can control game difficulty by choosing your monsters carefully. Definitely a great introduction into cooperative games and a must for fans of the genre. You can also have fun painting the detailed monster figs that come with the game.
