My wife and I have a monthly at-home date night. This helps us stay connected to each other while disconnecting from the world. While some at-home date nights get interrupted by the kids (grrrrrr…), this one went off without a hitch!
Let me set the scene for you: all blinds and curtains closed; all lights off; couch scooted up close to the tv; long HDMI cable connecting our PC to the tv; and a tv tray set up in front of the couch with a wireless mouse and mousepad.

I knew I’d love this game the moment I saw the name with the cover art. And it’s true. We played our first game with our young boy who was hilarious to watch play. He’d cover his face with his hands, peeking through his fingers when we’d roll to defeat a ghost or Haunting. He’d cheer when the last player escaped the haunted house.
