Yes, but it's fiddly. It's also a free-form miniatures game. Move your figures X inches, shoot out to Y inches, roll a 20 sided dice for damage, repeat. If you don't enjoy miniatures games, this may not be fore you. It makes for some absolutely hilarious gameplay moments, though, especially when teams begin converging inside the house after the key is found.

Combat is brutal, you're just as likely to lose a guy every time they're attacked, as survive the attack. Since each team has 6 freaks, that actually works out well - streamlining the game where it otherwise might bog down with stat keeping (and there's plenty of stat-keeping as it is, with limited ammunition, the stun "party hats" and one-shot special actions that most characters have).
