About Dread the Game
Dread is a game of horror and hope. Those who play will participate in a mutual telling of an original macabre tale. The goal of Dread is to sustain the delicate atmosphere that invokes the hand quivering emotion that lends its name to the game. The thrill of a Dread game lies within the tension between desire and loss. You will take on the role of someone trapped in a story that is only as compelling as it is hostile—someone who will find themselves making decisions we hope never to face in real life.
It is the horror roleplaying game that uses Jenga® instead of dice. Pull from the tower and you succeed. Refuse to pull and you fail. The choice is yours. But if the tower falls . . .
You can get:
- The 167-page softcover book of Dread for $24 plus shipping and handling.
- Or the Dread PDF which includes everything in the softcover for a mere $3.
- Or a short, 4-page reference pamphlet that contains all the rules for free.
- Or just learn more about the game here.
