This will be an Insta buy, but will try it out at the fantastic iello booth @ essen 17 :-)
status:

3-5p

Game group: core gaming group, family

Release: gencon/essen 2017

Extra info:
Novel based
Co-op
Horror-cthulu
Iello

This is a co-op game searching for items while you are climbing the mountain. Meanwhile some of your group can become insane (3lvls) and have to act for 30seconds while the group is discussing. The fun part lays here... If you play this with a group who like to 'act' a little bit, this is an amazing and hilarious game.
