Here are three important lessons that you should follow in your lifetime: Don’t forget to look to both sides when crossing the street. Don’t drink and drive. And no matter what, and that is the most important one – don’t kill a witch that was protecting your village from dark forces, because that won’t end great.

It seems that the people of a certain village ignored the last lesson, so we were sent to the village to complete the witch’s (god rest her soul) ritual.

It’s hard to write about the game without spoiling it, but it is extremely fun. It was our 5th game that day, at 23:00, but it somehow kept us awake and laughing all along it.

The game does have a creepy undertone, and some mini horror aspects, but I would really not consider it a horror game. They also combine the dark theme with horror very well, by introducing one of my personal favorite game master characters, that manages to make the game an absolute joy with every sentence. I’d like to write so many things about him, but basically – you should just go and meet him yourself, it’ll be worth it.
