Vamp on the Batwalk (Gifted!)
Duration: 20 minutes
Box Size: Medium
We would like to thank our friends at Jellyfish Game Studios for gifting us a copy of their game Vamp on the Batwalk.
We first saw this game at a Gaming Expo in Vancouver Canada. Every time we circled by their booth it was full of players eager to try it out!
It wasn't until the end of the expo where we had a chance to sit and chat with its creator and we just had to give it a try! 😃
Players take on the role of a vampire at a fashion show. Only problem is they do not know what they are wearing! (I mean, how could they?! 🧛♂️)
We found Vamp on the Batwalk really unique because while most games require you to look at a card's face, it's the exact opposite in this one!
After determining the first player (the most fashionable 🧛♀️), players take turns playing a card from their hand while only looking at its suit on the back. While they do not know what they are playing, they can see all the other player's cards.
Using the power of deduction, they must guess if the card they are about to play is of higher value. If they guess correctly they win the round and move their vampire token up one space on the "batwalk". (Such a fun name! 😋)
We really love the use of the game's box too! It transforms into the stage which is such a great way to save material and the artwork is pretty dang great too.
This is a perfect quick family-friendly game. It only took less than 10 minutes to set up, understand the rules and get through the first round.
