Each player takes on the role of a scientist racing to construct a viable living being to satisfy the mad obsession of their mysterious benefactor. Strategic placement of assistants across the city of Paris allows you to research scientific findings, charge your Leyden jars and scavenge the local cemeteries and morgues for materials needed to perfect your craft.

  • This game was played and recommanded by Gus & Co, here its opinion:


    Un gros jeu de placement d'ouvriers dans le Paris du XIXe siècle à la recherche de... bouts de cadavres, pour assembler une créature. La suite imaginaire du roman de Mary Shelley. 

    Un très bon jeu qui tente de se vouloir autant narratif que mécanique. 

    Avec beaucoup d'éléments à gérer, à maîtriser, à manipuler à surveiller au fil de la partie. Un jeu plutôt chargé avec quelques incursions du hasard (lancer de dé, événements, pioche de personnages) qui viennent certes épicer le jeu mais qui finissent par diluer sa stratégie.
