Spookies – an exciting gamers’ game

The haunted house looks even scarier than usual in the light of the full moon. But the four brave friends and their dog dare to enter the haunted house. But who dares to climb up the highest? Caution: Dice maneuvers that are too risky may take you further away from victory. So determine your risk in your mission to collect Spookies while you still can!

1. How much risk do you want to take? Decide whether to use 2, 3 or 4 dice.


2. Did you roll a high enough score to allow your figure to move up one floor? Then you will receive Spookies as a reward! But if your gamble didn't pay off, your figure will flee towards the exit.

3. When all the Spookies have been distributed, the horror will be over! The player with the most Spookies wins the game!

The game includes 5 wooden figures which are printed on both sides, plus 4 wooden dice printed with sparkling film to match the game board. The game board and cover are designed by award-winning illustrator Michael Menzel. Spookies is gamer fun that's easy to learn!
