Your daughter is walking home from school. All of a sudden, a van stops next to her and takes her in. The demands are given and you are to meet at a mansion with a lot of money. But it’s not just about the money, as you’ll soon find out.

This is a “Choose your own adventure” from Blue Orange, but instead of a book, it’s a comic.

Oooh, I loved Mansions of Madness from Fantasy Flight Games. It had one major problem though: 30 minutes setup time and long playtime. One of those has been fixed, and the other is really not a problem once you’re ready for it.

By yourself you’d be dead within a day or two. Luckily, there is another person there to help you, and his name is Friday.
