In this game you represent vampires that compete in a vampire fashion show.

You each start with five cards (which you can't see yourself!). You only see the backs of your cards and the cards of the other players. It's a tricktaking game, so you take turns playing a card, with one winner each trick, stars win from numbers win from garlic, but garlic beats stars! When you win you may advance your standee one space forward on the batwalk.

The first player that reaches 10 points wins the game, if this doesn't happen after three rounds you compare points, the one with the highest score wins the game.


The components of this game are phenomenal! The way the score is translated to the catwalk (I should say BATwalk) is really cool, I always really like it when you see your progression on such a track.

The fact you can't see your own cards is hilarious, you keep on checking the eyes of your opponents questioning yourself why is he staring at my cards so often? 

Being playable with 2-6 players it's the perfect game to put to the table after a nice dinner with friends or family! 


A copy of this game was provided to me by Jellyfish Game Studios for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
