Last night I was at the Hud's and we got bored and played a bunch of crappy games that were laying around in his house.  There was some unruly matches of Guess Who? and Mastermind, plus a new game to me called 30 Second Mysteries, which was crappy and easy.  But to top off all the games was the intense boardgame 13 Dead End Drive.  I would say this game is too much for the lazy.  It takes a while to set up and you need a lot of players to play.  So from what I gathered from the worst instructions ever was that you had to escape out of the mansion without being killed off by super cool traps that were reminiscent of Mouse Trap.  Only Tate and I played so it wasn't very tricky because we knew who's guys were who's.  We quit the game before anyone had won, but I think Tate won because she killed off more dudes then I did.  Overall this game would be cool if the rules were more clarified and if there are alot of people playing.
