Autumn is one of our favorite times of year to schedule a themed game night at our local board game stores. With so many Halloween themes commonplace in board games, there are tons of great games to choose from. Below are some of our favorites. Be sure to check out our calendar of events for spooky game nights!

Betrayal at House on the Hill

Betrayal at House on the Hill quickly builds suspense and excitement as players explore a haunted mansion of their own design, encountering spirits and frightening omens that foretell their fate! Put on some spooky music and prepare for a haunting!

The Exorcism at the House of Monkton Falls

Take control of a paranormal investigator, gather tools to complete tasks, banish the gathering darkness from various rooms in the house, and escape the dreaded spirit before dawn!


In Werewords, players guess a word by asking “yes” or “no” questions. Figure out the magic word before time is up, and you win! However, one of the players is secretly a werewolf who is not only working against you, but also knows the magic word. If you don’t guess the word in time, you can still win by identifying the werewolf!
