Top 3 Best Cheap Scary Board Games To Play Around Halloween
The witching hour is very nearly upon us, and the best Halloween board games are a great way to celebrate the spookiest of holidays. Fortunately for us, there are some price cuts on a collection of our creepy favorites to save you money along the way.
You can find these cheap bargains right here, and we'd argue that they're among the best board games for Halloween and beyond. Hold on to your loved ones, things are going to get scary.
1. Betrayal at House on the Hill
First up in our list of Halloween board games is Betrayal at House on the Hill. You’ll take control of 1 of 12 characters and enter the House on the Hill, a Vincent Price-inspired haunted mansion where all kinds of horrors await. The game starts out cooperatively where all the survivors explore rooms and pick up equipment before the “Haunt” is revealed. While exploring the house players are trying to build their stats and find items without getting cursed or injured before the “Haunt” begins and a traitor or monster tries to kill them all.
Our second choice would be the Gloom card game, a bleak but hilarious game for 2-4 people. This tasks you with making your family of Victorian oddballs so miserable they die. Perhaps Mister Giggles the clown was eaten by weasels. Meanwhile, your opponents will be trying to undo your good (bad?) work by cheering them up. It's bizarre and amusing fun that leads to some very memorable situations and weird journeys for your characters.
The Disney Villainous board game is another great option, particularly if you want something a little less creepy. Disney Villainous are pitted against each other in this family strategy game where Villainous plot, scheme and strive to bring the goodies - and their opponent villains - down. It's beautifully executed ('each character has a fold-out board with beautiful art, a quote from the film, a unique abstract player piece of their colour, and a luxurious deck of cards') and your gameplay abilities are determined by whichever character you happen to be, like Captain Hook or Maleficent.
