Description Edit | History

NIGHTMARE The Video Board Game!

Nightmare is a board game controlled by a video tape. It is a race against time and the game's host, The Gatekeeper. The aim of the game is to collect 6 of your character's keys and then race to the center of the board; The Nightmare Square. If the tape reaches 60 minutes The Gatekeeper Wins!

More Information Edit | History

In 1991, this game was released through the company A Couple 'A Cowboys. It was a Halloween release, and "a new dimension to entertainment: INTERACTIVE entertainment!" The game featured a VHS video which controlled the game. The game began promptly following the VHS tape insertion. The Gatekeeper is your on-screen host, and you were required to listen to and obey whast he says. If one didn't obey, he would punish them.
Later on, creator Phillip Tanner created other games: Nightmare 2: Baron Samedi: Zombie, Nightmare 3: Anne De Chantraine: Witch, Nightmare 4: Elizabeth Bathory: Vampire, Nightmare 5: Khufu: Mummy (rumored, and advertised at the end of Nightmare 4, but never happened). There were expansions as well: The Harbringers, Booster Tapes, The Soul Rangers, and card and computer games as well. There was a later DVD remake of the series, which to date consisted of two games: Atmosfear: The Gatekeeper, and Atmosfear: Khufu The Mummy.
Most Nightmare fans are constantly looking for a DVD release, but according to an interview with Phillip on Well of Fears, it will never happen. So, fans will be forever stuck with the VHS tape they have now, and, when they break, there won't be a replacement tape for you unless you want to pay a price on eBay or Amazon.

0 Nightmare Cards
Included here is EVERYTHING you need to play the Nightmare Video Board Game (without the board, of course, and the VHS video.) It contains a picture of the box, and the TIME, FATE and CHANCE cards from the game, as well as the rules sheet, and the keys and coin! I am not, by any means, a professional scanner, but these are good for printing and cutting out to aid you in missing cards or backup decks! If you download, you are trusted to do the right thing! The files were downloaded by yourself... keep them to yourself! Any issues, let me know! A little conversation goes a long way!

1 Nightmare/Atmosfear 1 Transcript
I have searched the entire internet for a transcript for this game. I haven't found it anywhere. So, I used the YouTube video version of the game to copy every word I can. If you find an error in either grammar or my error in hearing, remember it's a FREE file before you freak out about it not being 'good' enough. Comment about how awesome it is for me as well!

0 Nightmare/Atmosfear Chance Card List
A listing of all the Chance cards from Nightmare/Atmosfear to aid in identifying missing cards from incomplete copies. I have made an effort to transcribe the cards verbatim, but typos or other errors may be present. Even so, this listing should make it much easier to determine which cards need to be replaced in order to have a complete set.
