I’ve heard a lot about this game before and when I noticed that Kurt Wiegel had reviewed it on his YouTube channel, I thought this might be an appropriate video for today’s video post. I am not sure if I would ever play or run a game of Dread. I don’t think the Jenga mechanic is anything else than frustrating for players and GMs, but your mileage may vary.
So, what do you think about Dread? Is this a game you might want to play? Or if you have played it, did you like it? Please share your experiences with us!
Stargazer, I have the game. I have NOT played it, but in my opinion the game has potential. I had heard about it and told my players about it. Their response was less than enthusiastic; they thought the game just sounded like a nuisance. When I got the book I loaned it out and now my players are intrigued. I am planning on running a game, if we manage to squeeze some extra game time during the winter break. I would love to try to run a multi session game, not a campaign itself. But I think I will simply try a one shot adventure. If I do I’ll come back and post my experience.
