Woe To the Living Card Game


Woe To the Living Card Game Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Woe to the Living YOU are the sinister spectral force striking terror into the hearts of those brave or foolish enough to stay in your sleepy seeming small-town in the heart of America. You lurk in the darkest places, making night-time strollers walk just a little faster and double-bolt their doors. You must carefully cultivate terror and watch those impacted; too much terror and they die of fright becoming useless to you. Too little terror and you starve as your prey's fear fuels rage and reckless strength, turning terror into desperate defiance!

Sweet delicious terror!

Carefully select your prey across four rounds of game-play. The goal is to have the second highest total terror at the end of the game. This is made more difficult by the other players, all vying for that coveted high, but not highest, terror total. Use a sneaky card swapping mechanic to exchange face down cards throughout each round. Correctly gauge your opponents' motives in order to feed them the cards they don't want, or take from them the cards you need.

Each game includes:

One deck of 52 pulp era playing cards — complete with 29 revitalized pulp era 'horror comic' style images, painstakingly re-mastered so that the images come right off the cards at you! These cards also have the traditional suits and ranks and can be used as a standard poker deck!

3-5 Players (Play with 6 or more by combining two decks)
Playtime: About 15 Minutes
Ages: 13+
