Dread is a game that tells many stories. A group of friends go camping. It’s Halloween and you decide to throw a party. You’re on a road trip with family. You go for a walk in the park.

No matter how simple, how mundane the premise, something always goes wrong. And suddenly, like a flash of lightening, your easy vacation or night of relaxation is gripped with the icy claws of dread. You’ll be fighting for life or death against inexplainable forces, and as the night grows longer the stakes only grow higher….

In Dread, every time you take a difficult action, you’ll pull a black from a tower of blocks set up before the game begins. If you successfully pull out a block and the tower remains standing – great! Your character succeeds. But everything has a cost. If, for whatever reason, the tower falls on your turn while pulling a block, then it’s the end of the road for your little friend. Do you take the difficult actions to stay alive? Do you have a choice? Come find out when we play Dread, the classic horror RPG.
