Jim likes Monsterhearts 2 because all teen soap operas should have a ghoul in them.
Monsterhearts 2 lets you and your friends create stories about sexy monsters, teenage angst, personal horror, and secret love triangles. When you play, you explore the terror and confusion that comes both with growing up and feeling like a monster.
Based on the Apocalypse World engine, this is a game with emergent story, messy relationships, a structured MC role, and a focus on hard choices.
It draws inspiration from Twilight, True Blood, Buffy, Ginger Snaps, The Vampire Diaries, and The Craft. If you like supernatural romances, or stories of monstrosity and personal horror, or if you just like watching sexy people ruin their lives, then you’ll love this game.
This is the 2nd edition, released in 2017.
