Let me start by saying I don't own the license. I made this game just for fun after I was inspired by Season 1 of the show.

This is a 1 vs many for 2-4 players and takes about 60 minutes to play.

1 player plays as the Demogorgon and also controls the Department of Energy whose actions are dictated by the game mechanics.

The other player/s play as the good guys in group of Joyce and Jim, Nancy and Jonathan, or the kids.

Each role has it's own unique abilities. For instance, Nancy has Steve who can soak some damage.

Setup: A map of Hawkins is loaded with search tokens and Department of Energy agents. The non-Demogorgon players choose their locations on the map. The Demogorgon has a smaller map of Hawkins behind a DM screen which represents the upside down. They hide Will with 10 life, Barb with 5 life and 3 Department of Energy Agents with 3 life each on their board.

Gameplay: The good guys move around the city of Hawkins. Department of Energy Agents hamper movement and actions. As they move into each location, if a body is hidden in the same location in the upside down, the Demogorgon player will put a flickering light token on the location. The good guys are also picking up search tokens. Some are actual clues and some are not. Every time a search token is picked up, a card is drawn. Most cards are good for the Demogorgon, allowing them to move Department of Energy Agents, add more agents, etc... Once the good guys have enough actual clues, they can enter the Upside Down and search for Will and Barb based on the lights they found earlier.

After the good guys have taken their turn, the Demogorgon goes and can do things like attack players or take agents into the upside down. These add to the possible bodies the good guys can find in the upside down but take away from the hampering effect of the agent in the real world. Every time the Demogorgon goes into the real world, they open a protal into the Upside Down, these portals all the good guys to enter the Updside Down in those locations.

After the Demogorgon's turn, that player will remove one life counter from every body in the upside down. Once a body reaches 0 life counters they are dead. Will's 10 life points act as the round counter.

Winning: The good guys win if they can find Will and get him out of the Upside Down before he hits 0 life counters. The Demogorgon wins if he can stop the players from getting Will in time.

A few more details in there but the mechanics aren't too hard and the game is mid weight at most. Let me know what you think.
