So I love escape rooms. I love puzzles. And I love horror stories. So when you offer me something that claims to be a monthly set of puzzles and clues to a longer horror narrative story, you should have me right where you want me.
Episode One: At the same time that I received the first two episodes of Empty Faces, I was also graced with the first two episodes of the Hunt a Killer series “Initiation”, the 3rd season of this box subscription service. Having gone through those other Episodes with my escape room squad, I determined that I would attack these boxes by myself to see whether it would make a difference in my enjoyment or emotional attachment to the storyline. Only time (and two episodes) would tell.
Welcome witches and warlocks,
I recently had a chance to play Mondo’s board game The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 and figured I would offer up my thoughts for fellow horror gaming enthusiasts. As a bit of background, I absolutely love board games from the popular ones like Clue, to the easy to teach ones like Ticket to Ride, to the more complex variations like Catan. I am also a massive fan of John Carpenter’s The Thing so this was right up my alley from the get go. All that being said; how was the actual game?
Though the Halloween season has come to an end, those of us who have a love for the macabre are still going on strong. As the holidays steadily approach, you may be asking yourself, what can I get my loved one who has an affinity for the darker, more fantastical, things in life. Well, do I have the perfect gift for you! Mythos Candles, a subsidiary of Steamwolf Symphony, has created one-of-a-kind candles based off of some of the most beloved mythological creatures. Each candle has a strong, mesmerizing scent and is hand-poured in house with eco-friendly soy wax, quality phthalate-free, natural & synthetic fragrance oils and lead-free cotton wicks. Since I’m a huge fan of all things horror, I had the chance to test out Mythos Candles newest designs, Strigoi and Lycanthrope, and I was beyond impressed with the rich smell and craftsmanship that went into these candles.
