Beware the 29th of October, 2019! For on this night the air will be thick with screams of agony and maniacal laughter. Why, I hear you ask…for on this night, the eve of the eve of All Hallows Eve only the spookiest and most sinister of board games will make it to the table in the annual Wicklow Meeples:
Horrifying board games? Could it be so? Why yes it could. If you dare to venture to our eery evening you could end up becoming a ne’er do well innkeeper looking to make a morbid profit off their ill-fated guests, or a simple villager desperate to find out who amongst their trusted companions is indeed a werewolf…before the full moon rises once more!
Below you will find games of the like you have never witnessed before. Come along on the 29th and give them a whirl…if you dare!
The Bloody Inn
France 1831: In a remote corner of Ardèche, the little village of Peyrebeille sees numerous travelers pass through. A family of greedy rural farmers is determined to make its fortune and has devised a diabolical stratagem to achieve this goal: Invest in an inn so they can rob traveling guests, getting rich without arousing the suspicions of the police! Whether or not their plan will work out, one thing is certain: Not every guest will leave this inn alive.
It’s the 1920s, Mr. MacDowell, a gifted astrologer, detects a supernatural being upon entering his new house in Scotland and gathers a group of eminent mediums to attempt to make contact with the ghost. They have seven hours to make contact and unlock this old murder mystery.
In Mysterium all of the players take on the role of mediums, bar one. This last player is the ghost and their only means of communication with the mediums is through strange psychic dreams and by knocking on the table. All of the players (including the ghost) are working together to try and solve this age old murder and set the spirit to rest.
Run, fight or Die
It’s the zombie apocalypse you always knew would come and the undead horde is upon you. As you scavenge for loot and find fellow survivors only one thing is certain, you have three simple choices, run, fight or die!
Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space
You told Jones to keep his helmet on when he found the strange fungus on that abandoned mining craft you stumbled upon 16 days ago. Now, you are being hunted in the dark on your own ship, trying to make your way to an escape pod undetected. Those things that used to be your crew mates stalk you as you try not to make a sound. Will you escape from the aliens in outer space?
Fury of Dracula
Join the ranks of Van Helsing and Mina Harker as you band together to track down Count Dracula as he spreads his corruption across 19th Century Europe. Or take on the role of Dracula himself and try to remain unseen from this roving band of vampire hunters.
We don’t bite
The above games are just a sample of what we will have available to play on the night. Why not pop along and bring a friend with you. What’s the worst that could happen…
