twilightboardgame.jpgI spent five minutes trying to figure out a witty way of saying that this idea makes me want to wretch. Ignoring my revulsion-induced stupor, its true – there is a new Twilight-themed board game releasing sometime soon. From the description:

A new board game based on the highly anticipated Twilight motion picture! Reenact the hunt for Bella through the woods of Olympic Peaks with your friends, with one team portraying Bella and Edward while the other representing the hunting nomads James and Victoria. Each team uses hidden movement system – who will survive to the morning?

To be honest, the rules remind me a bit of Fury of Dracula (which is an outstanding game if you can handle the rather lengthy play time), but this may be one of those rare cases where the theme of a game is a total turn off…

Update: There seems to be some question as to whether or not this title is coming out. However, IO9 recently got to take photos of the game, so it seems likely that its actually coming out (though it hasn’t appeared on the publisher’s site yet).
