The original Menorah Game, self-published in 2005
Prior to the publication of Candle Quest in 2013 by Victory Point Games, designer Yehuda Berlinger developed The Menorah Game as a prototype in 2005. Jackson Pope of Reiver Games changed the theme to monster building and published the game as It’s Alive!, coming out with a limited edition in 2007, followed by a second edition in 2008, now out of print. An IOS version by Jeremiah Maher went on the market in 2011, and an Android version came out in 2013.
It's Alive! body parts
Candle Quest's gameplay is the same as that of It's Alive! with minor adjustments. The monster body parts have been changed to friendly candles, the angry villagers are now an unlit candle, and the wild card coffin is a dancing candle.
