Creepy & Creatively Spooky Board Games for Halloween


Discover the Hauntingly Fun World of Board Games this Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with some spooky board games? Board games provide a unique and interactive experience that can bring friends and family together for a night of fun and laughter. Whether you're hosting a Halloween party or just looking for a way to spend a cozy evening indoors, board games are the perfect choice. Let's dive into 5 chilling board games perfect for your Halloween gaming! 

1. BOOoop.

An adorably sneaky, surprisingly difficult & SPOOPY abstract strategy game for 2 players. 

Your goal in BOOoop is to arrange three feline friends in a purrfect line on the bed to claim victory. Begin by placing adorable kittens on the cozy bed.

Every time you place a kitten on the bed, it goes “boop.” Which is to say that it pushes every other kitten next to it one space away. You must say "boop" every time you boop some kittens. Line up 3 kittens in a row to graduate them into cats... and then, get 3 cats in a row to win.

But it's not a walk in the park with both you AND your opponent constantly “booping” kittens around. It’s like... herding cats!

BOOoop introduces a newer, boopier, and spoopier mechanic. 
NEW Ghost Cats float between the spaces, so scary, cats will leap right over each other to get away!

  • Approachable but challenging abstract game following the incredible success of the original "boop" as a limited seasonal game.
  • Features a new quilted, fabric board that lays over the back of the box, completing the minature bed playing surface. 34 adorable wood cat and kitten playing pieces!
  • NEW Ghost Cats can boop cats over other pieces as they move across the board between spaces.
