Play mad scientists competing to be the first to create life through the power of alchemy. Each turn, you may buy the offered body part, sell it to an anatomist for a meagre profit, or auction it trying to get a better deal or rip off your opponents. You might be lucky and get a coffin with a weakling's cadaver in it; or your involvement in the macabre trade might invoke the villager's wrath.

This is basically Dr Frankenstein Bingo.
This is a fabulous little game, quick and easy to understand the game flies by with much mirth and enjoyment. Faced with a \\\'slab\\\' (bingo card) to collect ones body pieces before the others, or to assemble the most expensive body (whichever game you choose between basic and advanced), this quick flowing game gets the fingers twitching.
The central stack is turned over card by card (unless the player chooses to buy a discarded card) and each player chooses whether to buy, sell or auction the card in order to complete the monster.
Upon completion of the Monster body the winner is determined
A quick game (15-30mins) and fun rather than strategic. Great artwork all around although I feel the cards could have been made a little more resilient and the box may have been made to accommodate the variety of pieces in a more protective manner, having said that, I love it.

This is just a brilliant, quick little game.
The quality of the pieces is extremely good and the artwork is just brillant fitting the theme just right.
Originally only produced as a limited edition 300 run, now released on general sale I would get a copy of this game as it is always fun and quick to play making it a usefull addition to anyone's collection
Players bid for various body parts to fill their slab to build their monster, they can buy them outright, sell them to the bank for half their value or auction them for cash.
Their are coffin cards which can be used instead of any other body part and these are worth more points then the body parts so are worth trying to get.
The villagers occationally revolt and they have to be appeased with a body part of equal or higher value or bought off with money.
The game ends when someone shouts "It's Alive" in a suitable mad scientist way after they have completed their monsters body. They get a bonus 5 points, everyone then adds up the total value of their body parts and can add up to half this value with money they have left. The person with the most points wins.
These volume discounts are in addition to sale and special offer prices.
