Summary
As nobles at a magnificent masquerade, you and your friends all vie to improve your social standing. Gossip flies, rumours swirl, and with each chime of the ebony clock, hearts fill with dread and despair. As midnight approaches, you begin to realize that something is amiss. Based on Edgar Allan Poe's sinister story, Masque of the Red Death pits you and up to six of your friends against each other as you hobnob with the Prince. But disaster strikes at midnight. You must balance your actions carefully between currying the Prince's favor and discovering which rooms the Red Death will visit. After all, having the highest social standing only matters if you survive... With stunning art by Gris Grimly, Masque of the Red Death is sure to delight and disturb you! First board game based on Poe's classic sinister tale
