October 31, 2016: Have An SJ Games Halloween Game Night!

Halloween Games

The zombies are stirring and vampires are sharpening their fangs . . . it's finally Halloween! We at Steve Jackson Games have a game for every spook, specter, and apparition in your family, so why not get a game in once the trick-or-treating is done?

If you lean toward the elder horrors, look no further than Munchkin Cthulhu Guest Artist Edition and its many expansions and add-ons. Katie Cook's new art gives your favorite horrors a makeover, and it's a unique take on these tiny terrors. You should also check out Cthulhu Dice for fast, elder dice-rolling action.

If you are looking for more cryptozoological horrors, then Chupacabra: Survive The Night is a great choice. It's a fast dice game with cool, glow-in-the-dark dice so you can play in the dark. You know, when Chupacabras hunt. (Don't worry, they aren't real. Probably.)

Maybe shambling hordes are more your speed? Then you should check out the brand new Munchkin Zombies Guest Artist Edition, with art by Greg Hyland. Of course, the existing expansions will work with this version as well, and there are a ton. But zombies aren't limited to Munchkin. For some quick, action-packed gaming, check out Zombie Dice. It plays fast and is easy to learn. Plus you can add Santa Claus or a School Bus. That's just cool.

Now, let's say you have a dozen friends sitting around ready to play something. Nobody wants to bob for apples, but everyone can play I Hate Zombies! If you know how to play Rock-Paper-Scissors, you can fight zombies. Or be a zombie. Because although you all hate zombies, half of the players will be fighting to turn the humans into zombies. But the humans all have special powers, so it won't be easy. This is a perfect Halloween party game for 12 people who have a disdain for the undead.

Hopefully this has given you some inspiration on how to turn your ghoulish gathering into a mad monster party, whether at home or at your friendly local game store. Have a happy Halloween, and play more games!
