Frankenstein's Children is a horror-themed, tabletop game of tactical combat. At the end of the 1800s, the heirs of Dr. Victor Frankenstein descend on his ancestral home to plumb the secrets of the animation of dead flesh. They succeed all too well, and a war erupts for total control over Castle Frankenstein. Each player fields a team of mad scientists and monsters who struggle across a set of board tiles that represent the warzone that the castle has become.

Frankenstein's Children is the second in the Gothica series of games, following hot on the heels of Dracula's Revenge. Each standalone entry in the series shares the same basic rules system, which allows you to plug the components from the games together to play whole new battles that are larger and stranger than the originals.

The game comes with character and action cards, 9 dice, 20 board tiles, 12 doors, 2 reference cards, 2 dice screens, and a complete rulebook. Most games take from 1 to 2 hours or less.
