Rio Grande has announced that they are on track to release an English version of Finstere Flure (with a new name) this summer. They've also announced that they are going to be publishing Friedemann Friese's next game.

Many of Friese's games are finally getting released in English editions. It's a little unfortunate that they're destroying the "F" alliteration naming scheme, but I can understand why they would want to change the names so as to be easily pronouncable by English speakers.

I'll bet we can suggest some english transliterations that maintain the 'F'.

How about:
Frightening Freak
Fearsome Fantom
Frightful Fortress

With the addition of a Jamie Lee Curtis "I look like the Crypt Keeper!" charicature monster head, the english version of this game would be the perfect board-game-adaptation of the movie remake of Freaky Friday.

Or something..

In fitting with the storyline...

How about "Fortress Fieso" or some variation?

Fearsome Floors? That sound about as scary as cracked linoleum.

Re:English version coming from Rio Grande
I saw the English version in my local shop a couple days ago. I didn't know it had been done in English, so I took a look at the box to see if it was the same game. Nowhere on the box could I find the cool little carboard monster - it hasn't been removed in the English printing, has it?

I have the Rio Grande edition, and it does come with the cardboard monster, and some extra parts so you can mix 'n match.

Ah, good. I couldn't imagine that they'd leave it out...
