Bluebeard's Bride



A young bride is wed to an ugly, but powerful man with a blue beard. He invites her to explore the house...but one room is forbidden. Eventually, the young bride falls prey to her curiosity and opens it, discovering the gruesome display of former brides murdered...

Explore Bluebeard's mansion and create your own beautifully tragic version of the dark fairy tale with Bluebeard's Bride. Experience the nightmarish memories that haunt the rooms of this broken place and discover the truth of what happened here. But it is up to you and your friends to decide whether or not you are a faithful or disloyal bride.

In this book, you get:

  • Five playbooks, each representing a different aspect of the Brides personality
  • Detailed instructions for running the game and playing to find out what happens
  • Tools for creating your own custom servants, rooms, and horors for Bluebeard's Bride
  • Tips and tricks for managing horror at your table, including safety mechanisms

Bluebeard's Bride is an investigatory horror tabletop roleplaying game that makes use of the same rules-light engine as Apocalypse World, Monsterhearts, and Urban Shadows to create stories of feminine horror in the vein of Crimson PeakAmerican Horror Story, and The Company of Wolves.

3-5 players | One-Shot Play | 2-4 hour sessions | Rated Adults Only | Powered By the Apocalypse


Bluebeard's new Bride explores the locked rooms of his manor while he is away, each containing tantalizing and horrifying secrets.

All but one: the forbidden door. Will curiosity be the end of her?

Bluebeard's Bride is a phenomenal game: It is a work of terrible, dark beauty. It is a game of supernatural and psychological horror. Highly recommended!

But it should absolutely *NOT* be in the "Romance" category. This game is the antithesis of romance: It's about a man who systematically murders the women in his life.

This one's discounted from $49.99 to $13.99, will it retain the discount indefinitely or will it return to the original price later?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
