OUR AWESOME GAMERS
Don’t take our word for it – here’s thoughts from some of our playtesters:
I was asked to help ensure that Shiver was as new player friendly as possible, without losing any depth or character.
I can safely say that SHIVER is my new obsession!
What the team have developed is an incredible set of mechanics that will weave horror stories fit for Alfred Hitchcock.
SHIVER builds the perfect crescendo of suspense and terror, concluding at the stroke of twelve on the Doom clock!
If you are looking for a way to feel like you are in your favourite schlocky horror B movie or properly spine tinglingly creepy book or film, this is the game!
It is super fun and easy to pick up. No stress filled moments trying to add multiple dice dots and modifiers at speed.
You get the joy of playing in whatever pop culture genre you fancy and using the archetypes available to either slot into a trope without too much thought or totally make it your own.
‘SHIVER is a fast paced, adaptable, enjoyable system. It’s become my go to for a quick one shot or long term campaign. I can’t recommend it enough!’
