Nyctophobia means fear of the dark. Welcome to the experiential table top game that is going to redefine what it means to play a game. Nyctophobiais a cooperative game of survival where up to four players must work together to escape a maniacal predator chasing them in a pitch-black forest. But there’s a wrinkle: would-be survivors play the game with blackout glasses. Players cannot see the board and have to rely on touch to navigate their way to safety. So, are you afraid of the dark?
Nyctophobia is a cooperative tactile maze game for 3 to 5 players. All but one of the players play the game blindfolded, completely unable to see the board. The blinded players make up the Hunted team. They are tasked with finding the car space on the board and surviving until the police arrive to rescue them. The sighted player is the Hunter, who is tasked with chasing down the Hunted and reducing one of the Hunted to zero health before the police arrive.
