Recruit your feature creatures at the Monster Inn

September 30, 2022 - 4:30pm

Fellow Dungeon Masters, don’t you just hate it when your finely-crafted dungeon is raided by pesky adventurers who steal all your treasure and kill all your hired help? What is an evil overlord to do? Why, hire newer, tougher monsters at the Monster Inn.

Pegasus Spiele's Monster Inn, designed by Roman Pelek with artwork by Dennis Lohausen, is a bidding game where you’re trying to collect the most powerful monsters while avoiding gathering the nasty wimpy human cards.

Each round, human cards and creature cards worth varying points are turned face up in the center of the table. Players bid on the cards using their treasure, consisting of gold coins and gems. Players will continue to bid until a player can’t or won’t offer a higher bid and then they will be forced to take a human card or one of the lower powered monsters. Only those who stay in the longest have a chance at getting the higher powered monster cards. The player with the most fame points at the end of the game is the winner.

Monster Inn plays 3-5 players, ages 8+, with an estimate playtime of 20-30 minutes. The game should be available for purchase during Essen Spiel in October 2022. 

Where to start? Where to start? Hmm... I like to play games? Yeah, that's brilliant. <delete><delete><delete> I'll try again later.
