Lockwood's Asylum is a competitive survival horror deck-building game.
Unlike most deck-building games, Lockwood's Asylum allows players to build not only their own decks, but also the decks of their opponents. Each time a player purchases a Monster or Horror card, that card goes into the play area - or "Room" - of the player to their left.
Any Ally cards that a player purchases go into their own Room, where they help defend against the Monsters and Horrors that have been placed there by the others players.
At the end of the turn, the Allies, Monsters, and Horrors in the player's Room battle it out! If the Monsters are able to overwhelm the player's Allies, then any excess damage lowers the player's Health. When a player is reduced to 0 Health, they are eliminated from the game. The last player left standing survives the night and claims victory!
Madhouse is a survival horror roleplaying game set within the Lakeshore Asylum.
In this roleplaying game, the players take on the roles of patients who have been sent to the asylum to recover from their mental disorders, only to learn that survival might take precedence over recovery.
Madhouse uses a D10-based "roll and keep" system that provides tactical options while keeping gameplay quick and intuitive. The Insanity mechanic features a "press your luck" mechanic that allows players to "push" to gain bonuses to their dice rolls. Each Push also increases a player's Insanity, however, and if a player accumulates too much Insanity, they might find themselves acting irrationally in situations that call for cool heads and critical thinking.
