Cheapass Games to release Doctor Lucky’s Mansion that is Haunted
Cheapass Games is releasing another product in their beloved Kill Doctor Lucky line. Doctor Lucky’s Mansion that is Haunted is an alternate board with supplemental rules, beautifully illustrated by Cheyenne Wright.
In the original Kill Doctor Lucky, players are would-be murderers, all of whom have reasons to hate and kill Doctor Lucky. On this alternate board, Doctor J. Robert Lucky wishes to sell his haunted house to a pair of unsuspecting newlyweds from across town… but the ghosts of Lucky Mansion have a different plan. They love Doctor Lucky so much, they want him to stay with them forever; unfortunately for the doctor, that means everyone is still trying to kill him!
In Doctor Lucky’s Mansion that is Haunted, players are ghosts, so they can move through ceilings, walls, and floors. Any two rooms are connected if they share an edge. Players can “see” from their current room into all the connected rooms, but no farther.
The board also contains three secret portals that connect two rooms, represented by duplicate objects (the raven, globe, and portrait). Players may move move through these portals, but cannot see through them. For added flavor, Cheapass Games recommends adding the word “ghostly” to the text of every card.
Doctor Lucky’s Mansion that is Haunted is compatible with the 19.5th Anniversary Edition of Kill Doctor Lucky. It will retail for $16 and will be available this September.
