Polter-Heist: Quests

Polter-Heist: Quests
Development Period: September 2014 - Ongoing
Status: Playtesting

Polter-Heist: Quests adds a level of complexity to the original Polter-Heist, bringing more competition, more strategy, and more cooperation to the game.  In Quests each player will have specific goals in their exploration of the haunted house.  New Item Decks for each floor of the house include different treasures, artifacts, and items to collect.  Your character may be required to work with the other characters to complete tasks and find items, or maybe you have an evil heart and will complete your goals at the peril of your fellow players.
Getting chased down by a mob of zombies!
What's New
This expansion adds a number of additional cards and components. Actions instead of roll-and-move mechanics will ensure that players have more control of their exploration of the house.  There are new discoveries for each of the floors, character cards, secret agendas, tokens and pieces to represent demons, zombies, fire, locked doors, body parts, and more!  Plus a Scenario Guide with 19 different scenarios (and counting)! Each game will be wildly different with Polter-Heist: Quests!

A strange fungus is growing in the basement.  The fungus spreads every turn and will soon start to creep onto the first floor and block the door.  Before the players can escape thy must hack their way through a wall of slime, but they must do it quickly before the slime engulfs them!

Scenario 17: The Sneak
Players search each floor and find the Treasure almost immediately, however no one trusts anyone else, so they do not reveal that they have the Treasure.  Instead they try to sneak out of the house while the other players try to figure out who has the Treasure and stop him.  A game of deduction, reasoning, and bluffing.

Scenario 18: Werewolf
Explorers enter the house together, intent on finding the Treasure.  But at the stroke of midnight they are in for a surprise.  One or more of the Explorers is a Werewolf and it is their night to transform!  Now the Explorers must continue searching for the Treasure while fending off Werewolf attacks.

Scenario 19: Shifting Corridors
As players explore the house nothing remains the same for long.  Shifting and changing rooms create an ever fluctuating house and each room comes complete with its own set of dangers!  Beware!
