“Here’s Johnny!”

Stanley Kubricks’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining is 40 years old. To celebrate the film’s anniversary there is a new board game heading our way.

In The Shining: Escape from the Overlook Hotel, take on the roles of Wendy and Danny and work together to search for a way out! Use psychic abilities like “the shining” to solve challenging puzzles, but beware of Jack and the hotel itself, which are conspiring to keep the Torrance family captive. Can you get Wendy and Danny out of the Overlook Hotel while avoiding the axe-wielding Jack?

Driven by the Coded Chronicles mechanic, which requires you to unlock clues and solve puzzles for unique storytelling codes, the game allows you to use psychic abilities like “the shining” to get through more than two challenging hours of escaping the threat of homicidal Jack and the paranormal hotel itself! Since every Coded Chronicles game is enriched with thematic details and objectives, escaping captivity makes this edition’s difficulty level as hard as a dizzying hedge maze (minus the time limit)!

Designed by Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim (Mind MGMT, Belfort), players can anticipate being engaged with every unpredictable turn, thanks to Wendy and Danny’s heightened abilities, which allow their characters to investigate with double the intuition as characters from the previous Coded Chronicles edition. Use Wendy’s skill of looking and using surrounding objects to get a better hold of helpful items or tap Danny’s supernatural “Shining” to reveal hidden clues.

What’s Included:

  • 4 Journals
  • 4 Room Tiles
  • 44 Clue Cards
  • 11 Secret Envelopes
  • 1 Act 2 Envelope
  • 2 Character Standees
  • 1 Hotel Guest Guide

It costs £25 ($29.99) and is due out later this year. Check out the official site.
