Are you ready for a walk in the woods? 

Don't Walk in Winter Wood is a storytelling game of folkloric fear. Players take on the roles of hapless villagers who must enter a legend-haunted forest and uncover its sinister secrets. The game uses simple rules and a unique narrative style to help you create spooky stories with your friends. It includes:

  • Game Rules: Easy-to-learn rules designed to be playable around a campfire. Recommended for 2-6 players in search of the willies. Playing time averages about 2 hours.  
  • Advice: Tips on running games of folkloric horror, building your own scenarios, and creating a memorable, spooky atmosphere.
  • Scenarios: Three ready-to-run scenarios set in Winter Wood. Desperate villagers strive to save a girl hexed by a long-dead witch in The Curse. A mischievous children's dare leads to an encounter with The Strangers. Rumors of a skinchanging beast haunt the village in The Witchery Way.

This is the revised and expanded second edition of the game featuring all new layout and artwork by George Cotronis, new legends, new rules clarifications, and new adventures. It is the definitive edition to add to your game library.

Don't Walk in Winter Wood is written and designed by Clint Krause. Clint has been a small press game designer/publisher since 2004. His previous writing and game design credits include: Roanoke, Twilight Memoirs, Urchin, The Bizenghast Adventure Game, Empire of Dust, and others.
