It's been twenty years since Victor Frankenstein died on a ship in the arctic, but his vengeful creature lives on, as does Robert Walton, the sea captain who vowed to kill the fiend before mercy stayed his hand. It's now 1819, and a sinister darkness descends upon the city of Paris. A mysterious benefactor of gigantic stature has emerged in the scientific community, never showing his face, claiming to possess the late Frankenstein's research. He sponsors a grand competition, offering an even grander prize: unlocking the mystery of mortality!

Renowned scientists from around the world come to take part: some drawn to solve this eternal riddle, others coerced against their will. But a certain captain comes as well, one deeply suspicious of the secretive patron, hoping to finally fulfill his vow.

Abomination: The Heir of Frankenstein is a competitive game of strategic monster building for 2-4 players, inspired by Mary Shelley's classic novel of gothic horror. In the game, the creature demands your help to accomplish what his own creator would not: to bring to life an abomination like itself, a companion to end its miserable solitude. Through worker placement and careful management of decomposing resources, you'll gather materials from the cemeteries and morgues around the city, conduct valuable research at the Academy of Science, hire less-than-reputable associates, and toil away in your lab — all in an effort to assemble a new form of life and infuse it with a "spark of being". Do well, and the creature may reward you during one of its surprise visits; do poorly, and you may come to regret not putting forth more effort. Narrative elements come into play throughout the game, guided by your decisions, leading to potentially unsavory outcomes.

The game ends when you succeed in bringing your creation to life or when the Captain kills the creature, whichever happens first. Then the player with the most points fulfills Frankenstein's dark legacy, becoming his heir, for good or ill...

Bring Life Into Your Game

I've read and heard a lot of negative reviews about this game but I love horror themes, gothic settings, and worker placement games. My only problem with this game is that I am dice averse. There are several things to contemplate in this game: financing, set collection, worker acquisition and development, and item collection and development. You also have to consider personal development as well because your character does not only have its own power, it also develops as a result of your decisions. Players interact with each other mainly via competition over worker spaces. Event cards provide a narrative that adds atmosphere, story, and either penalties or bonuses to gameplay. Not all event cards will be used and the turn they are drawn affect which side will be read. Not all event cards and player personalities can be used in one game so this, with the chance arrangements of each deck of cards at each locale and the dice rolls for animation of your creature sums up to a high degree of replayability. The rules are simple enough with very few complications. I purchased a copy of this game because of its unique theme. Granted, the combination of game mechanics are familiar, but the gestalt is a beautiful beast. The main gripe I get from video and written reviews is the material used for the player board. To give you an idea, it is the same kind of material used in players boards of Argent: The Consortium, Arkham Horror (Revised Ed.), Chaos in the Old World, Descent (Second Ed.), Terraforming Mars, and so on. Most games of Fantasy Flight. Most games available on retail. In short, I'm not disappointed because this is not a deluxe copy nor was it ever on Kickstarter so I don't expect it to have quality greater than retail. I find the artwork to be gruesome - it's a horror game after all - but it justifies the 13+ age requirement. By that age, a child would have been exposed to the decapitations of Yu Yu Hakusho and the zombies of Train to Busan or Zombieland. I even know some parents who allowed their children to watch The Walking Dead.
