Horror Trivia is a twisted trivia game where you are answering questions against your opponent to win 3 cards of different weapon cards to arm yourself against your opponents and win the game. However, it isn't easy as just answering 1 question on the card; you have to answer both questions in order to win the card/weapon required to win the game.
Box and Components
The box is a simple cardboard box that is designed sort of like a playing card box but larger. Within the box, there is a clear plastic insert that holds the 150 cards and the instruction sheet. The instruction sheet is small, single sided, and to the point. The trivia cards are made of sturdy material with gloss to them. One side contains 2 questions with the picture of the weapon you are trying to win and on the back side is the answers to the questions from the previous side. The font on the cards is crisp and legiable to read.
Each card contains 1 weapon picture in the upper right hand corner of the card. There are 5 unique weapons: Machete, axe, chiansaw, crucifix (cross) and a crossbow. In order to win, the first player to collect 3 different weapons wins the game and survives until the sequel.
Set up is very straight forward. You will place the trivia question deck with the answers face down on the table within reach of all players. In the instructions, it states first player is "the player who is voted most likely to die first in a horror movie" gets to answer the first question then another player gets to read the question.
The reader of the question will draw the top card from the question deck and read the first question aloud. The answerer (may it be a single person or a team) will get 1 guess to answer the question. If correct, the second question will be asked. If the answerer answers incorrectly for either question, the card is discarded, and their turn is over and proceeds to the next player/team.
The game ends when 1 player or team has collected 3 unique weapon cards and has survived until the sequel. Everyone else has "suffered a horrific fate by the hands of evil."

For someone that loves Halloween and Horror, I thought "man, this game will be super easy." Boy, was I wrong. The questions range from all types of horror from movies, books, comics, and tv shows. It took awhile before I was able to answer 2 questions on a single card and collecting a single weapon. This is a great game to break out when you have a bunch of horror lovers around or when it is spooky season. The rules of the game are straight forward and easy to get a game started. Be sure to check this game out as well as the other games in the Endless Games catalog.
