ThinkFun Shadows in the Forest Game

July 22, 2018



(ThinkFun $24.99)


We don’t get many games designed to be played in the dark like this one. It’s a little like Hide and Seek with little “Shadowling” figures that hide in a forest of trees. The “Seeker” is “It” and tracks down the Shadowlings that “freeze” when caught in the light of its lantern. Players work together to move the Shadowlings to stay out of the light. The glow in the dark dice tell the Seeker how many moves it can make. This is something of a cooperative game in which the players work together to get into one tree shadow before they are frozen by the Seeker. This would make a good game for Halloween party time and kids 8 and up.
