Workhouse Games Launches The Awful Orphanage Kickstarter

The life of an orphan is already pretty rough. But to get put away at Ms. Pendergast’s orphanage is just that much worse. But enough is enough. It’s time to bust out of this gruesome place. The orphans have decided to make a break for it, and get some revenge along the way. That’s what you’ll be up to in The Awful Orphanage, a new board game from Workhouse Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

The Awful Orphanage is a mildly evil tabletop game for 2 to 6 players that sees you and your friends navigating winding corridors and rooms, search for items, dodging orderlies and running from the nefarious Gaunt & Sinister Man all whilst searching for one of the hidden Magical Talismans to free yourself from this macabre prison!

Will you work together and give everyone a chance to escape? Or are you just playing along until you can be sure of your victory, and leave your friends behind …

The campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 29 days.
