“Halls of Horror Board Game takes an Escape Room in a NEW outlook!” Ever thought of playing a survival horror game using a board game instead of a video game? Well, that’s now possible with ‘Halls of Horror’ an innovative Survival horror turn-based board game! The board game is now on the crowd funding platform, Kickstarter.com and requires funding to successfully get launched and distributed as a mainstream board game across the world. You will get many rewards for being a backer of the board game on Kickstarter. Your goal is to find the Exit, hidden among the various rooms in the labyrinthine mansion while evading a deadly killer and under the watchful eye of mad master of the ceremony. To get out you need to find the keys that are hidden in the rooms… and stitched inside of other players. Only one player can escape.
Here’s the video trailer about the board game’s Kickstarter:-
The company which is creating this game has been founded in 2009, since then the team has grown in numbers and experience working on multiple games and platforms. On April 9, 2019, they announced launching a new brand – Draw Distance, which in time will become the new name of the company. Draw Distance symbolizes a new philosophy behind the company’s activities and aspirations – they aim to become a renowned developer of true indie gems, visually breathtaking multiplatform titles with rich story and engaging gameplay.

Description of the game from the publisher:-
Trapped inside a house built by the insane Master of the Ceremony, you are challenged to a deadly game in which the prize is your survival. Your goal is to find the Exit, hidden among the various rooms of this labyrinth, and the two Keys you need to open it. Keys can be found by exploring the Halls, but if all else fails, there’s always the option to take one out of… other participants! Each of you has a Key sewn into your body while you were sleeping, the macabre detail courtesy of the Master of the Ceremony, who watches your struggles using his cameras, and mixes up the playing field from afar… Only one of you can escape, the others will stay in the Halls – forever!
All Players declare their actions for the turn in secret, and then reveal them simultaneously. Players explore, search rooms to find weapons and other items that will increase their chances of survival, and fight one another for the ultimate prize – their life! Other participants are not their only concern, however, as the host of this bloody spectacle also directs a twisted Killer, more monster than man, who moves around the board in search of victims. At the end of each turn, the First Player momentarily takes on the role of the Master of the Ceremony, and, in addition to executing other effects that influence the game’s board, needs to direct the Killer. Will you avoid him, or try to face him for the chance to grasp one of the Keys you need from his cold, dead hands? Just be warned, as the Killer might still take revenge from beyond the grave!
And if you perish? Well, you won’t get to escape, but you can still play AS the Master of the Ceremony and make sure nobody else escapes, either. Choose cards from a wider selection and customize your approach. Will you close off rooms to make the board more cramped, forcing players to fight, or will you incentivize players with strategically placed Gifts? Who will the Killer target now that you have sole control of him? The weakest or the strongest participants?
Explore, search, fight or flee, find the Exit, gain the Keys and escape… or remain in the Halls of Horror forever! 2-4 players can go head-to-head in their bid for survival, and you can also face the challenge alone in the game’s solo mode!
