Haunted houses. Considering the time of year, they're just ramping up. Well, you don't have to wait so long on your tabletops if you'd like to have some spooky fun. WizKids has released Hako Onna (the board game, not the vengeful spirit). Can you get out of the house in time?
From the website:
WizKids is thrilled to announce that Hako Onna, the spooky Japanese game of horror hide-and-seek in English for the first time, is now available in North American Game Stores!
In this excitingly atmospheric asymmetrical game for 3-5 players, one player becomes the Hako Onna, or “Box Woman,” haunting the house where her spirit resides and eliminating all who encounter her. The rest of the players are Visitors, trapped in the house with this vengeful spirit, and must either escape or defeat the Hako Onna once and for all.
If the visitors successfully lay the Hako Onna to rest, or collect the keys and locate the secret exit, they safely escape and win the game! But if all players are killed before they can complete their objectives, they meet their doom at the hands of the Hako Onna and are cursed to remain in the house with her…forever. Face your fears and pick up Hako Onna at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!
