Sleuth of a Seuthe: An Investigative Review on Games

As a long time avid game player, and lover, I come before you to tell you my complete honest and forward opinion on games. I will bring out the things I like in the game. Point out the things I dislike. And consider who this game would be best targeted at. All of this while also assigning a completely random biased number on a scale of 1-8. Why 8? Because I can!

When I first played Slasher: The Final Cut, I was very excited to jump into the dynamics.

The game works very simply. You have a rooms, players and a slasher. Your goal is to survive, or kill the Slasher. You have clues to defeating the slasher, or health. You play cards as if it was a scene. Cards allow you to move, make the slasher move, or force the slasher to attack other players.

The whole goal being total destruction of the competition, while trying to defeat the slasher.

On your turn, you play a scene card, and players can play plot twists to your scene. It's always best to describe your scene as it unfolds.

WHAT DID I LIKE ABOUT THE GAME:

I loved the theme of the game, every turn feels like a scene from the movie, it's designed that way. Think about Gloom, with the story design, but in a horror movie feel. That's the perfect way to play this game!

WHAT DID I DISLIKE ABOUT THE GAME:

To be honest, I only wish this game could be re-drafted today. It could stand a little polish, but it was a great game. The art of the time (pictures of their friends) was ridiculously campy. Which in some ways are good and bad, but it could be better.

Also, the rules need a lot of polish. There have been to many fights about to many wordings of the cards within this game.

WHO IS THIS GAME DESIGNED FOR?

People who love horror movies. It's hard to find, but if you can snag a copy, I highly suggest you pick it up!

RATING!
5.9 out of 8. The rules kills the rating. It would be so much higher, even with the art as it is, if the rules didn't defeat itself.
