YouTube star Joey Graceffa has partnered with Studio 71 Games to expand the Escape the Night universe with an all-new board game.
Graceffa – who has over 12 million subscribers on his channel – is perhaps best known for his YouTube series Escape the Night. In its fourth season, the murder-mystery series won Best Unscripted Series at the 2019 Streamy Awards. It has been viewed over 185 million times.
Escape the Night: The Board Game is described as “a magically haunting adventure set within a 1920s estate where an Ancient Evil lines the halls.” The board game is currently raising funds through Kickstarter and has already surpassed its $30,000 goal. It is scheduled to ship in December.
“It has always been a dream of mine to bring the fantasy-horror world of Escape the Night into a new dimension where fans can experience, first-hand, solving diabolical clues, fighting mystifying monsters, and thwarting the mysterious man,” Graceffa says.
Here are some more details on the game from Studio 71 Games:
Assemble your friends and travel back in time to play a thrilling adventure that is set within an evil house, where you confront and battle the wicked that lies within. Players will explore the house, room by room, locating the Society Against Evil’s markers, fighting formidable monsters, and deciphering clues in order to collect precious relics. Once all markers are cleared, players may claim the artifact.
But watch out, as a mysterious man looms the halls trying to stop you from advancing. While sometimes working together, players will also vote at the end of each turn for two players to battle one another in a daunting death challenge.
In the final round, an hourglass will be set for the remaining players to take action as fast as they can in order to collect all the remaining artifacts. As time rushes through the hourglass, do you have what it takes to defeat the evil and Escape the Night?
