Subject: Possibly a Unique Halloween Gaming Request? rss

What I'm looking for are games that are decent and fun for 2 players, but with a physical "gimmick".

I recently discovered Shrieks & Creaks and I own Vampire Hunter. One's fun gimmick being the keys, tape & speaker...the other being played w/ the lights off and lighted tower.

These physical gimmicks, where the players have to do or activate something that, to me, give these simplistic "roll & move" games a fun, and unpredictable aspect where they could work for 2 players.

What I'm wondering is if there are anymore like this.

I do know about I Vant to Bit Your Finger, but just haven't be able to hunt down a complete one that wasn't super expensive. lol

I just figure it would make Halloween weekend, or any weekend really, that much more fun. Start with Zombie Dice, go into these, and then maybe end w/ Ghostbusters or Elder Signs. lol

There's a few that work for two players, but are best for more.

I'm very fond of Mord im Arosa where you drop cubes down the tower and then have to hear and guess where they land, it's however better for 4 or 5. It's about murders at a hotel so that might suit your theme.

The Perfumer you need to match smells to plants and colours, best with 3 or 4.

I can think of others it's just they are just awful or unplayable with 2. There are great ones based on deduction and hidden rolls where people have to leave the room, but for two players there's very few.

Shadows in the Forest, or any number of the Drei Magier Spiele games, like Nacht der Magier or Vampires of the Night.

I thought of a few others...

--Curse of the Idol

and of course...

--Dark Tower
--Fireball Island

Two games I'll never be able to justify buying. lol

Oh, one more that's in the same theme but definitely more kid oriented...

--Mouse Trap!
