I primarily played the game on an app but it simply did not work for me. I don't demand tremendous theme from dice games but locking in symbols did not communicate... really anything about what I was doing.

Mild and crazy-easy—and not at all what I was expecting from a "horror co-op". After I reset my expectations to "lite larf" I found that the game is really all about the pulpy, three-fisted flavor and the delicious tension that comes from a 5-in-6 chance of *instant doom* as the lone bone rattles around in a sweaty fist and a depth of eyeballs stare...

...and for those rare moments of real catharsis when that 1-in-6 bit hits and the whole table erupts in exaltation.

Don't expect much and this will meet you halfway there.
