Created for the Light & Dark GameJam, this horror game uses a modified version of the Gambit system to bring 2 Players together in a place of darkness. Light is the only thing that might keep them safe from the Shades that occupy the land of the old mansion and grounds. Sadly, light is the rarest thing they possess.

Can two strangers, stolen from their normal lives and placed in this house with none of their belongings, survive long enough to escape, or until dawn keeps the Shades at bay? Can they unravel any of the mystery behind what happened in this house? Can they do any of this as a team, or will one prove to be willing to betray the other for a better chance of survival?

Replayable, with multiple potential difficulties, Surprise! is part board-game, part TTRPG, all guaranteed to bring you back to the table for another challenge.

The Gambit: Surprise! rules are also available as a standalone purchase here.
