This is more of a kids style game, a lot of memory involved. The game, board and bits are really high quality, all very nicely done. Game flows well and we all laugh and make vampire comments. A 4 year old can play it easily. We don't use the rat tokens at all though and the game doesn't seem to suffer at all.***A year later, the kids still bring this one out to play and it has held up well and is still enjoyed.

Holy crap! This game is hard! For a kids memory-style game, this one can't be beat. Excellent, excellent quality, cute graphics (I like the toilet paper roll in one of the crypts, btw). Towards the end, turning over lids was intense - lots of anxiety on my part, I just wanted to bonk my head against the table. Even my husband said that as far as memory games go, this is the best one he's ever played.

{1 play • 4 players} We had a blast with this one. I'd heard it was all memory, and in theory, if you can play that way then, yeah, you'll probably win in a cake walk. But in practice, we were all just trying to remember a few specific spots... and dang if we just kept messing up, causing much laughter all around. I know part of my enjoyment of this one was us being in the right mood, and also the gorgeously produced board and bits, so I suspect my rating will drop with subsequent plays... but maybe not that far. There is one problem, though: it seems like you're more likely to win by giving away your final vampire on someone else's bad move rather than winning the game on your turn by making a good move. That not only feels wrong, but it encourages the far-too-serious player to vamp (pun intended) when down to his last vampire - just keeping picking the safe-but-wrong casket and wait for someone to hand you the win. Of course, maybe there's a game end rule we got wrong, but you could just as easily prohibit players from giving away their last vampire, forcing them to win on their turn only.

Please note that this rating is based on the fact of what the game is trying to be. It is a kids game, and one with a memory aspect. It is, without a doubt, the most strategic and choice-filled game of that type I have ever played. The theme is rich and enjoyable, and the components top-notch. As a kids memory game, it is almost perfect, and certainly worthy of the title "excellent".

Fun memory game. Not at it's best with two players, however, but works great with four, five or six. I don't use the rats anymore - I don't think they add anything to the game except unnecessary complexity.

Suggest.

[Children's Game] A memory game with a unique twist. Fun to play with children. The age recommendation on the box is "six and up", which is very suitable, since the game is a little long for a 6-year-old, and the rules and strategies are also a bit demanding.

My tester (age 6) was very successful at opening empty graves, but she did not manage to take her strategy to the next level. That is, trying to open graves that match the vampire colors she already has available. For her younger sister (age 5) the game was way too complex and therefore uninteresting.

Very good component quality, both in terms of graphics and durability.

I have some problems to rate this game. It is a childrens game and as I never play with children I can't rate it fairly for what it is. So perhaps I shouldn't rate it at all. But we played it with a bunch of adults and really had fun with it. It is a nice memory game with a fair amount of schadenfreude (ist this an english word?). So I will rate it as an short adult fun game and hope it is fair to the game
Perhaps it is even better as a childrens game!

Rated from a child's point of view. The theme may be a bit too much for the young ones. I suggest just not talking about the theme then and just focus on the game-elements. Make the graves their beds or something like that! Children love this game. It's colourful and is basically just memory (with a little twist to teach them some more gaming aspects to move on after this). This means they are good at it and have a good chance of winning from me.

I like memory games and this one is my favourite. It has a pretty board, an unusual theme that works, and is just too tricky for the memory proficient to have too much of an advantage. A quality boardgame.

A children's game that's great for adults. A memo game, but you're trying to match the underside of gravestones to your vampires, so as to laid them to rest. It becomes surprisingly hard surprisingly quickly. Quite the challenge and enormous fun.

Excellent memory game. While this moniker usually consigns people's expectations to the "been there, done that" bin, this game has more going for it. Sixty covered coffins adorn the board non-symmetrically. Players find homes for their vampires (game comes with 10 of each in six colors total) in empty graves on the board covered by coffin lids. In order to get rid of a vampire, the vampire's color must match the coffin's lid color and the grave must be empty. Revealing an occupied coffin = gain a wooden stake = three stakes and you're given more vampires by the other players to get rid of. Garlic cloves may also be placed (three each player), which prevents vampire placement (and also allows the player who placed said garlic to give away one of their vampires). Quick, easy, fast, and fun. Scales beautifully for adults as well as children, and also plays fine for 2 (playing with four colors instead of the full six). The theme might not be suitable for some children (vampires, graves, coffins, a cemetary), but the graphics and design is playful enough that it's equivalent to a Halloween old-fashioned ghost story - the vampires are cartoonish and non-threatening but "friendly". The bits and gameboard are beautifully designed (no wood like most Zoch games, but still first rate). If you aren't into horror-themed games or memory games, I'd still give this a "7." And even if you aren't into said games, this one would still hook you. Good party game, especially at Halloween.
