Plaid Hat Games has just announced a new gothic horror strategy board game, Abomination: The Heir of Frankenstein by designer Dan Blanchett. In Abomination, 2-4 players take on the role of scientists in 1800s Paris competing to complete the work of the infamous Dr. Victor Frankenstein. Scientists need to deploy assistants to raise money, charge Leyden Jars, research new scientific findings, and most importantly collect raw materials.

Body parts need to be harvested, exhumed or bought, then used to build bodies before they go bad. Players only have 12 rounds to try to create a viable creature for their mysterious benefactor. For more information and game rules, check out the Plaid Hat web page here.
