It's time to check in.
Dead & Breakfast, as the name punnily suggests, is about building a hotel. You want five stars - five stars, that is, in a database that allocates stars to the worst hotels, or the most haunted, or simply ones that you should avoid staying at.
By incorporating ghosts, zombies, creepy dolls, spiders and bats - as well as an eerie display of colourful poison ivy - you will create a hotel that has your guests not just nail-biting, but full on finger-chewing.
BUILD FIRST, SCORE LATER
Building your hotel in Dead & Breakfast happens around a haunted carousel of tiles - three of which, due to inconvenient ghostly activities, will be inaccessible on your turn. Once you choose a tile, the ghost will move there, allowing you to influence what tiles others can choose from on their turn.
But Dead & Breakfast, like all good horror stories, has a twist - until you've completed a row of your hotel, and have space to invite a guest to stay, you don't know which guest you'll have, and what ghouls you'll score for at the end of the game...
SIMPLE, ENGAGING, REPLAYABLE
Dead & Breakfast takes a matter of minutes to learn, but is infamously hard to master - there is little luck involved, and players will reap the benefit of thinking ahead a few turns to try and create a solid plan. With the addition of unique scoring tiles for advanced games, there's no reason to not keep playing Dead & Breakfast!
