For those who are familiar with this game, it is similar to the card game Mafia. Mafia is a card game where people try work together and try to solve who the murder is. In this game, the shining, it definitely resembles the same type of horror thriller where you and your friends are also on a survival mission, but instead of the goal being to try and find out who the murder is, although this is an option, you are trying to survive four to five days depending on difficulty level. This game if you have watched the movie follows the exact same story line and has some unique aspects that make the game that much cooler if you've watched the movie. I definitely think there is room for improvement when looking at the variations at difficulties and at times have felt that it was a little too easy for the group trying to survive the murder. Give this game a try, its definitely one that you won't regret.
