Read the FAQ on the Smirk & Dagger website: being the last one 'standing'(or hopping...or dragging...or 'disembodied rolling head') does not automatically make you the winner - you still have to get past The Twins. It is possible for no one to win the game...which makes me like it even more.
I had a grand time with my kids (15 & 10) playing this one.
