"Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city. The further down the construction site the tile is, the more stone you'll need to pay to take it. Immediately add the tile to your city, either expanding outward or stacking higher. Once all tiles hav

Season 2 Features

Into the Void

It’s kill or be killed in when you're being hunted in space! The Necromorph features a "hiding" mechanic where it will disappear into the ventilation shafts only to return when you least expect it… or perhaps if you plan right, into a well-laid ambush! - Alien

The USCSS PATNA spaceship introduces 'keycards' that can be used to access different parts of the ship. Will you kill your foe the old fashioned way? Self-destruct the ship and escape? Or perhaps you’ll try to airlock the killer into the void! - Supernova

Terror at Station 2891

You won’t know who you can trust when playing against The Organism. How can you fight what you can’t see? You’ll have to test the victims in the lab or with test kits you find to determine if they’ve been assimilated. Of course, your real job is to kill them to stop the spread once identified! Featuring three different types of organisms, you’ll never know what you are going to face. - The Thing

The arctic Station 2891 features new unique challenges. Anyone who stays outside too long risks succumbing to frostbite, but the only escape is via the helicopter traveling to and from the station from the Arctic airport. Will you try to save your comrades against all odds, or look out for numero uno and use them to buy yourself time? - ?

A Knock at the Door

What horror game would be complete without a home invasion? The Intruders are here. Face not one, not two, but THREE killers. You thought one was hard, but you’re really going to have to stay on your toes against these murderous menaces. - Home Invasion or The Strangers

Wingarde Cottage offers a new challenge with unique events and a new crafting mechanism that let's you take ordinary items and turn them into epic weapons. Stick with that knife or scrounge up some wood and nails to craft The Obliterator? It will be up to you, just make the call before it is too late! - Cabin in the Woods or You're Next

Once Upon a Full Moon

Not every story ends happily ever after. This isn’t the Big, Bad, Wolf you imagined as a child. It’s bigger and badder than you could imagine. Can you slow the wolf down before it becomes fast enough to move anywhere on the board in a single turn? Featuring 'hunt' and 'slay' modes, the killer will take different actions depending on what mode it is in, making for yet another unique challenge for you to tackle! - Red Riding Hood

Storybook Woods features a unique layout with a river running through the land. You'll have to cross rickety bridges only you and one victim can safely traverse. Fairy tale events and items may be a magical miracle or a crippling curse. Will you get lost, or make it out of the woods alive? - Hansel & Gretel

Madness in the Dark

The Ratchet Lady is in a mood. She's performing her own brand of therapy on the victims, turning them into bloodthirsty maniacs. You'll have to decide if you want to try to calm them down, or kill them before they can kill you. But the only way to really stop them will be to put down the Ratchet Lady herself. - Silent Hill or One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Wolfe Asylum seems harmless and like a typical mental institution to outsiders. Inside lies something very different. There's medicine and other drugs inside that can, shall we say, amplify your abilities. But at what cost? When the choice is death or a potential side effect, it really isn’t a choice at all. Down the hatch! - Asylum

About

Playing on a famous horror movie trope, Final Girl is a solitaire-only game that puts the player in the shoes of a female protagonist who must kill the slasher if she wants to survive.

The Core Box, when combined with one of our Feature Film Boxes, has everything you need to play the game. Each Feature Film Box features a unique Killer and and iconic Location, and the more Feature Films you have, the more killer/location combinations you can experience!

In game terms, Final Girl shares similarities with Hostage Negotiator, but with some key differences that change it up, including a game board to track locations and character movement. You can choose from multiple characters when picking someone to play and multiple killers when picking someone to play against. Killers and locations each have their own specific terror cards that will be shuffled together to create a unique experience with various combinations of scenarios for you to play!
