Note: Psycho Raiders is the first game featured in the "Halloween Nightmares Horrorgame Magazine", a game magazine dedicated to Halloween and the Horrorgame genre. Players will need to xerox elements and provide two D6 and pencils to play this game
In 1978 four friends experience a nightmarish ordeal. Steve, Randy, Ginger, and Dawn innocently set out to camp and enjoy the countryside near a small town on Halloween. Unfortunately their car breaks down and they meet with pure darkness, the Psycho Raiders, once they are on your trail, they hunt to the death...
This horrifying halloween night may not be survived. The true story of what happened on this fateful evening comes alive in the pages and gameplay of Halloween Nightmares.
Psycho Raiders is a horror simulation experience. Unlike games that tend to aim for perfect balance, Psycho Raiders' main focus is delivering the terrifying experience that occurred on this Halloween night. Characters and situations are not balanced to equal one another but created to simulate the actual experience. The game begins very slanted to the raiders, they will assuredly destroy if fighting just ill prepared campers. Through the use of finding weapons or alerting the nearby town folk of Crucible, the campers can possibly turn the tables on the raiders. But there may also be a horrid realization that certain town folk are raiders themselves. The campers may not be able to trust anyone! It might be best to run! RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!
Psycho Raiders is a tactical hex and counter game with each token representing an individual character. Characters have sheets with some individual stats related to speed, strength and will to live. In the short game, the campers can win if any of them escape the north end of the map while hidden.
Psycho Raiders is a very visceral experience and we have rated it X. Anyone one under the age of 18 is NOT permitted to play. Pregnant or players with a fragile or nervous disposition are strongly encouraged NOT TO PLAY THIS GAME!
