Get Ready for the Spooky Season With NEW Haunted Mansion Board Game
by Melissa Roden · August 6, 2023
With two months still to go until Halloween, Disney’s Haunted Mansion is having its day in the sun due to the box office success of the latest Haunted Mansion film as well as the popularity of the beloved dark rides at Disney parks around the globe! Now, we’ve got another way that you can get in on the spooky fun, without heading to the movies or the theme parks! Check out the new Haunted Mansion game currently available on Amazon.
Though the game has previously been released in different incarnations (including one for Disneyland Resort) , this new edition celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World and has been revamped for the festivities.
This game is all treats and no tricks and is a collaboration between Disney and Funko! Let’s take a closer look!
The Haunted Mansion board game features an illustrated board detailing many of the quirky things you’ll find in the mansion. This includes some special edition Hitchhiking Ghost figures. It’s up to players to move around the mansion, down the corridors, through the seance room and avoid some not-so-happy haunts like Constance Hatchaway in the process!
As you wind your way through the haunted house, you’ll collect ghost cards. Each of the cards has different point values. At the end of your journey, the player with the most points wins!
Disney and Funko advise that the game is suitable for ages 8+ and can accommodate 2-6 players. According to a recent piece in Variety , it takes about half an hour to finish a full game.
Also, trust us when we say that the game is not as simple or as “straight” forward as it looks! The rotating hallway changes direction which alters the location of the players. This means the winner will remain a mystery until the last cards have been selected!
In celebration of Disney’s 50th Anniversary, the Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits board game features new artwork, glow-in-the-dark happy haunts, and comes complete with a 50th Anniversary seal making it an awesome collector’s item!
The Haunted Mansion Boardgame retails for $26.00 and is currently available on Amazon here.

How to Play Disney’s The Haunted Mansion Call of the Spirits Board Game
Before we get into how to play Disney’s The Haunted Mansion Call of the Spirits, here’s a little background info. This enchanted board game invites six players as guests into The Haunted Mansion, based on the Disneyland attraction of the same name. As they go through the many rooms and sections of the mansion, players attempt to befriend the ghostly inhabitants of the mansion. Players win by accruing the highest number of points, which are earned by collecting Ghost Cards. Read on to discover how to maneuver around the mansion and best other players.
Table of Contents
Object of The Haunted Mansion Call of the Spirits
The main objective of the game is to win by amassing the highest number of points. Players can do this by collecting as many Ghost Cards as they can. All Ghost Cards have a points value printed on their face. You can pick a Ghost Card by landing in the Endless Hallway space adjacent to the room during normal gameplay or by ‘stealing’ another player’s ghost cards.
What’s in the Box?
- One game board divided into eight areas
- One rotating Endless Hallway piece
- One first player marker
- Six player movers
- One Hitchhiking Ghost mover
- 120 Haunt Cards
- 99 Ghost Cards
- 14 event cards, including one Final Round card
- Two bidding dials
- Instructions manual
Setting up the Game
- Lay out the board representing the mansion and its different sections.
- Install the Endless Hallway piece in the middle of the board. It should be able to rotate if placed correctly. The six sections of the Endless Hallway should correspond to a section of the haunted mansion.
- Give each player a player mover along with its corresponding reference card. Place all player movers in the middle of the board in the séance room.
- Shuffle the ghost cards and place them on one side of the board facedown. Repeat the same for the haunt cards.
- Place the bidding dials on the other side of the board.
- Place the Hitchhiking Ghosts in the Crypt of the mansion.
- Lay down the Event cards near the edge of the board.
- Pull out the Final Round card from the Events deck and shuffle the remaining cards.
- Randomly take out a number of cards equal to the number of players plus three.
- Shuffle the remaining cards and pull out the three bottom cards from this deck. Put the Final Round among these cards and reshuffle them. Place these cards at the bottom of the Events deck.
How to Play The Haunted Mansion Call of the Spirits
After setup is complete, the player who last heard a ghost story is selected to take the first turn. Gameplay is divided into the Events phase and the Action phase.
1. Events Phase
In the Events phase, the player flips over the first card in the Events deck. Then move the Hitchhiking Ghosts the number of spaces indicated on the card.
The player in the Endless Hallway section that the ghost lands in must draw two Haunted Cards. If the ghost traveled through your section, then you can draw one haunted card.
Now put Ghost Cards in the rooms of the mansion. The number of cards used is equivalent to the number of players plus three. The first two of these will be placed in the same room as the Hitchhiking Ghosts and the rest of the cards are placed sequentially in the other rooms in a clockwise direction.
The rules of the event card are now read aloud to all players.
2. Action Phase
Here the player with the first player marker begins play with the others taking their turns sequentially in a clockwise direction. During their turn, a player can perform three actions in any order which they choose. Some actions, such as Move, Rotate and Collect, can be done any number of times during a turn. Others, such as Duel and Discard, can only be performed once per turn. Let’s look at these actions individually:
- Move: With this action you can move your player mover to the adjacent room.
- Rotate: This action allows the active player to move the Endless Hallway in one direction as many spaces as they want. You can use this action to move competing players into an empty room or one in which the Hitchhiking Ghosts occupy.
- Collect: Pick the Ghost Card in the room your player marker is adjacent to and add it to your personal collection. You will then receive the number of points on that card.
- Duel: You have to be in the same room as another player to be able to perform this action. Using the bidding dials, you and the competing player will secretly select numbers. If yours is higher, you get to steal their Ghost Card, and vice-versa. If you bid the same number, it will be a tie and everyone gets to keep their cards. Either way, both of you will have to draw the number of haunt cards equal to your bid number.
- Discard: This action can only be performed if your player mover is in the Séance Room. It allows you to remove one Haunt Card from your personal collection and return it to the bottom of the Haunt Card deck.
After each player has completed their actions, the first player marker is passed to the next player in a clockwise direction to begin another round. The game ends after the conclusion of the last Action Phase after the Final Round card has been drawn.
Scoring and Winning
At the end of the round, every player will tally their Haunt Points as indicated on the Haunt Cards they have collected in the course of the round. The player with the most Haunt Card points will remove all the Ghost Cards from their most populous ghost type. This will cost you points as each Ghost Card has a value based on the type of ghost. The winner will be the player with the most Ghost points.
Number of Players and Playtime
Disney’s The Haunted Mansion Call of the Spirits is playable with two to six players. The average playtime stipulated is around 30 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions

Disney’s Haunted Mansion board game is for ages 9 and up.
Are two players allowed to occupy the same room?

The Board Game Family
Disney: The Haunted Mansion – Call of the Spirits board game review
When was the last time your family spent some time in The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland or Disney World?
It’s a classic ride that Disney fans flock to the world over.
And now you can live it up on your own kitchen table!
Last year, while all the Disney parks were shut down, Funko Games published Disney: The Haunted Mansion – Call of the Spirits Game .
Players explore all the classic rooms of the ghost-infested manor, from the festivities-filled Ballroom to the Attic and out to the Graveyard and beyond in search of ghosts.
Are you ready for those grim grinning ghosts to socialize?
How to play Disney: The Haunted Mansion – Call of the Spirits Game
The main goal of The Haunted Mansion game is to score the most points by collecting sets of ghost cards from around the mansion. But they’ll also have to watch out for Haunt cards because the most haunted player will lose points.
The centerpiece of the game board is the Endless Hallway — which rotates in the center of the board. Each player places their mover in the Séance Room (very center) and the Hitchhiking Ghosts mover is placed in the Crypt to begin.
The Ghost cards, Haunt cards, and Event cards are also shuffled in their individual decks and placed face down.
The game is played over a series of rounds that consist of 2 phases: Event phase & Action phase.
At the start of each round, the top Event card is placed face up next to the deck. The Hitchhiking Ghosts are then moved the direction and number of rooms indicated on the card. Each player that is in a room the Hitchhiking Ghosts pass through draws 1 Haunt card. And each player that is in the room the Hitchhiking Ghosts end in draws 2 Haunt cards.
In addition, each Event card lists a condition that applies for the duration of that round.
Next, Ghost cards are drawn and placed face up in the various rooms. The number drawn is equal to the number of players plus 3. The first 2 cards are placed in the same room as the Hitchhiking Ghosts. Then, moving clockwise, one card is placed in each room until all have been placed.
Then it’s time for action!
Beginning with the First Player for the round, each player will take one turn and then the round ends. On their turn, a player may take 3 of the following actions in any order (and may take the same action multiple times).
The game board is divided into 6 different rooms. However, player’s movers remain on the center dial on the board — either in the very center Séance Room or on a Hallway space aligned with a specific room. For an action, a player may move their mover to an adjacent room (by placing it on the aligned section for that room) or between the Hallway and Séance Room.
Rotate the Endless Hallway
For one action, a player may rotate the Endless Hallway as far as they’d like.
Collect a Ghost Card
A player may take 1 Ghost card from the room they’re in. Player may take more than 1 Ghost card from a room, but each card taken requires 1 action. If the card has an Effect, the effect is performed immediately. The player places the collected card face up in front of them.
If a player collects a card from a room with the Hitchhiking Ghosts, they also must draw a Haunt card.
If a player is in the same room as another player, they may declare a Duel to attempt to steal one of their cards.
The player announces who they are dueling and which of their Ghost cards they are trying to steal. Then each dueling player takes one of the Duel Dials. They each secretly chose a number on the dial — 0, 1, 2, or 3. This represents how many Haunt cards they are willing to draw to get the Ghost card they’re dueling over.
When both are ready, they simultaneously reveal their bids. Whoever bid the higher number, gets the Ghost card. If there is a tie, the Ghost card remains with the defender.
Regardless of the outcome, both players draw the amount of Haunt cards they bid.
Players can only take the Duel action once on their turn.
Discard a Haunt Card
If a player is in the Séance Room, they may use an action to discard one of their Haunt cards to the bottom of the Haunt deck. Like a Duel, a player may only take this action once per turn.
After each player has taken a turn, the round ends. The First Player marker is passed to the left and a new round begins.
During the Event phase, if the Event card revealed is the “Final Round” card, this will be the final round of the game. In the final round, 3 additional Ghost cards are placed on the board.
Once the final round is over, players add up their points.
First, players add up the value of all their Haunt cards. The player with the highest value must discard all of their Ghost cards of the type that they have the most of.
Then players add up all the points from their Ghost cards and the player with the most points wins!
Scoring Ghost Cards
There are 8 different types of Ghost cards plus 5 Special Ghosts.
- Ballroom Ghosts each score 4 points (but players must draw a Haunt card each time they collect a Ballroom Ghost).
- Groom Ghosts are each worth 1 point. When collected, the player also collect the top card from the Ghost deck.
- Dancing Ghosts are individually worth 0 points. But a pair of dancing ghosts is worth 7 points.
- Tea Party Ghosts each score 2 points. When collected, the player must move the Hitchhiking Ghosts the number of rooms indicated (the player chooses the direction).
- Grim Grinning Ghosts each score 2 points. When collected, the player discards a Haunt card of their choice.
- Musician Ghosts are worth the squared value of the number of musician ghosts collected. For example, 3 musician ghosts grant 9 total points and 4 musician ghosts grant 16 total points.
- Painting and Artifacts grant points based on how many are collected. One scores 3 points. A pair scores 0 points. And a set of 3 scores 12 points. If a player has more than 3, extras are scored as a separate set.
- Stretching Portraits come in 4 different types (denoted by icons). A set of 3 identical stretching portraits score 15 points. A set of 4 unique stretching portraits score 18 points. Each stretching portrait may only be included in one set. And any that don’t fit in a set are worth 0 points.
- The 5 Special Ghosts score in unique ways as described on their cards.
Can the whole family enjoy The Haunted Mansion?
Disney: The Haunted Mansion – Call of the Spirits Game is a fun game most members of the family can enjoy playing together. I say “most” because understanding the different ways the types of ghosts score may be difficult for young kids. The recommended age for the game is 9+ and that feels pretty accurate to us.
As we like to see in board games focused on family play, The Haunted Mansion has a good mix of luck and strategy. Players are faced with choices that make a difference in the outcome, yet they’re also impacted by the luck of the card draws. And of course, all players are impacted by the choices others make.
And we find the level of player interaction in the game a perfect fit.
Since everyone’s collected ghost cards remain face up in front of them throughout the game, it’s easy to see how other players are trying to score points. And players can make choices based on trying to keep certain cards out of reach of their opponents (like by shifting the Endless Hallway to move them away from certain rooms).
The only cards players keep secret are their Haunt cards. They range in value from 1 to 3 and players want to steer clear of having the highest total value at the end of the game because they’ll have to give up their most-collected type of cards and not score them.
The most direct player interaction are the Duels — where players attempt to steal cards from each other. It’s a very interesting dynamic because ghost cards will have differing values based on what the players have collected so far. For example, one card may be simply okay for one player, but very valuable for another player because they could score a set.
But knowing that the player trying to steal may score big points if they get the card, the defender may choose to secretly bid high on the Duel Dial just to keep it from that player.
However, the draw back is that, regardless of the outcome, both players in a Duel have to draw the number of Haunt cards equal to their bid. So you may get the card you want, but it may bite you in the end if you get high value Haunts that make you lose those fought-over ghost cards in the end.
The secret bidding can be a very engaging part of the game. But we also know others that don’t care to Duel at all. The great news is that it’s up to you and your group dynamics on how it plays out.
We’ve also found that, because of the luck of the card draws, players aren’t able to plan too far ahead in the game. Every round the Hitchhiking Ghosts will move around, a new Event card may change a condition, and new Ghost cards will be randomly set out in the rooms. So you’ll have to adjust each round on what you’re going to do based on the options in the moment.
You can set your sights on collecting certain sets of cards, but should be prepared to be flexible and opportunistic as well.
Perhaps our favorite element of the game that also feels so thematic is the rotating Endless Hallway in the center of the game board. It’s a separate board piece that sits in the middle of the board so it can spin freely. And it totally captures the feel of the Disney ride.
Plus the artwork on the cards also match perfectly with the theme park ride.
How does The Haunted Mansion score on our “Let’s Play Again” game meter?
With so many ways to score points from the various cards, it’s fun to play again and try different strategies.
We’ve reviewed a number of Disney ride-themed games over the last few years and The Haunted Mansion has been our favorite among them.
We’d like to thank Funko Games for a review copy of Disney: The Haunted Mansion – Call of the Spirits Game .

Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits Welcomes Foolish Mortals to a Charming, Simple Game
Disney theme park rides continue to be a source of entertainment—even outside of the parks themselves. The Jungle Cruise movie is set to come out (at some point) and Disney recently announced Space Mountain and Haunted Mansion were getting films. But first, a new board game is inviting creepy ghosts to come out and socialize...in your own home.
Funko Games has helped create Disney’s The Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits , a board and card game where players win by socializing with as many of the mansion’s ghosts as possible. That activity takes the form of collecting Ghost Cards placed at various spots around the board and the person with the highest total wins. Players move around using an “endless hallway” to collect the cards and build sets while trying to avoid the Hitchhiking Ghosts— bumping into them will cause players to incur penalty points, called “haunts.” The person with the most haunts at the end may well end up losing the game, as they’re forced to get rid of their largest set of cards.
Right off the bat, Call of the Spirits gets props for the art and game design. It’s cute with just a touch of creepy and comes with a lot of nods for Disney Parks fans. For example, the game board that contains the mansion’s rooms gives off a Mysterium vibe (with the back of the board showing an exterior shot of the Haunted Mansion), and the cards portray a wide variety of the ghosts and portraits that fill its many halls. They’re a bit more modern and cartoonish than I would like, but that’s a personal preference and doesn’t speak to the overall quality of the artwork. Even the inside of the box lid gets to be part of the fun, as it contains an artistic rendering of the stretching elevator room.
The game might look daunting, given all the cards, but it’s pretty easy to learn—it takes about 10-15 minutes to get the rules down. It’s very similar to Sushi Go , albeit with the added difficulty of moving around a board to collect things. I’d say the hardest part is learning the card set configurations (of which there are several) and which ones will earn the biggest points. Let’s just say what I thought was a genius strategy didn’t work so well the first time around. Given how many board games love to pile on the rules and obstacles nowadays, it was refreshing to play something that was, well, simple. It’s recommended for ages eight and up and that seems totally fair, making it a good board game for family nights.
Unfortunately, it’s not super stellar for couples’ sessions. The game says it’s for two to six players, but it’s clearly geared forward four or more people. Players can only take three actions per turn—which take the form of moving around the board, rotating the endless hallway, taking ghost cards, or removing haunts. When you have a lot of players, that’s a lot of moves and the board stays relatively clear. But if you only have two players, it means your board ends up getting overwhelmed with ghost cards you simply don’t have time to collect. It didn’t break the game, and my husband and I still had fun playing it, but it did get a tad annoying by the end. If anything, I’d recommend a house rule of giving players an additional action if you’ve only got two to three players.
Call of the Spirits is a great board game for families, as well as folks looking to relive the glory days of getting to actually visit a Disney park . It’s an especially good choice for families looking for Halloween night options, as trick-or-treating may not be possible during “the times we’re living in.” It might be more for a night of casual gaming than an in-depth session, but sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered. Well, in this case, it might be a mortician. Hurry back, hurry baaaaaack.
The Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits costs $25 and is currently available at Funko’s website .

The Haunted Mansion board game features an illustrated playing surface inspired by the iconic Victorian mansion, along with glow-in-the-dark characters (a.k.a. the “hitchhiking ghosts”). Move around the mansion by rotating through the “Endless Hallway” around Madame Leota’s Séance Room, collecting “ghost cards” along the way. Each of the cards are worth different point values and the player with the most points wins. Just be sure to avoid those hitchhiking ghosts!
An official collaboration between Disney and Funko (makers of the popular Funko Pop characters ), the family-friendly game is suitable for ages 8+ and designed for 2-6 players. It takes about 30 minutes to finish a full game. Because the rotating hallway changes player positions throughout the game, the winner is often not decided until the very last cards are drawn.
The Haunted Mansion game is available in a regular edition (below), or the special Magic Kingdom Park edition. The latter features new artwork from Walt Disney World as well as the glow-in-the-dark Hitchhiking Ghosts and a commemorative 50th anniversary foil seal on the box.

The best horror board games to play this Halloween
Have you felt a chill in the air lately? Has the cold wind rattled your bones? Halloween is soon to be upon us – the hallowed eve when all things dark and spooky emerge from the woodwork. If you’re gearing up for a Halloween party, or just looking forward to a cobwebbed night in, board games are the perfect celebratory companion.
There are plenty of spooky board games out there – games that send you on terrifying quests through haunted mansions, or to dances with the dead. There are games that ramp up the horror of darkness – and others that open on derelict villages haunted by strange murders.
However you celebrate Halloween, there’s a board game adventure out there for you. Here are a few suggestions to get you started on your haunted tabletop journey as the cool wind kicks off, and the Trick or Treaters come out to play.
Our Top Picks for Spooky Horror Board Games
- Check out Mysterium on Amazon .
Mysterium is a gorgeously-illustrated board game that asks players to tap into their psychic potential to divine visions, and free the haunted soul of a ghost (played by a single player). The only way the ghost can communicate is through surreal imagery – pictured on art cards – and it’s up to each player in the game to work out the clues being presented, as the clock ticks down. Each ‘hour’, the ghost can provide more visions, helping to narrow down the circumstances of their death – but it’s largely up to the players to work together to solve the mystery.
As in Cluedo , players will need to solve a murder in multiple parts. They need the suspect, location, and weapon cards all laid out to end the game – or the soul will not be able to find rest. Should the mystery be solved, the ghost is free – and the players have won the game.
It’s not just the clever gameplay loop that will likely attract your party of players to Mysterium – it’s also the wonderful art, and the atmosphere created by the game board and pieces. It perfectly sets the tone for a spooky evening, and should keep players in a Halloween mood.
Scooby-Doo! Escape from The Haunted Mansion
- Check out Scooby-Doo! Escape From The Haunted Mansion on Amazon .
Scooby-Doo! Escape From The Haunted Mansion is a puzzle adventure game where players must embody each member of the iconic ‘Scooby Gang’ and use their unique skills to travel through and eventually escape a haunted mansion. Each map tile reveals a new set of puzzles, with each character unlocking new parts of riddles. Velma, for example, is good at examining things. Scooby can sniff things out. Shaggy can put things in his mouth. Each of these skills are extremely handy as you get further into your quest, and attempt to escape the mansion.
If you’re a fan of the Exit the Game or Adventure Games puzzles, the gameplay loop in this mystery plays out quite similarly. It’s all about looking deeper into riddles, trying out new solutions, and thinking deeply on your answers.
For the most part, this romp is fairly easy – making it great for younger kids or those less familiar with board games – but there’s also some real head-scratching moments that will certainly be a challenge. If you’re looking for a lighter Halloween romp that won’t scare you silly, Escape From The Haunted Mansion is a fantastic, casual adventure game.
Betrayal at House on the Hill
- Check out Betrayal at House on the Hill on Amazon .
Betrayal at House on the Hill is another adventure through a haunted mansion – although this one is filled with plenty of tricks. In the base version of Betrayal (there are also Scooby-Doo! and Dungeons & Dragon themed variants of this adventure), each player embodies a hero wandering through the endless corridors of a mansion. As you move, new tiles are placed – revealing the furthest reaches of this house, and new items or beasts with every turn.
Each room carries the risk of triggering an event known as ‘The Haunt’, where one or more players are driven mad and become pawns for the evil forces in the House on the Hill. From this point onwards, players are locked in a fighting battle against their friends, attempting to escape the house or complete a certain goal by defeating monsters and derailing the evil’s plans. While this game can devolve into chaos, it’s still an excellent and frightful romp, perfect for Halloween.
If you’re looking for a different kind of adventure set in a haunted mansion – one where you don’t have to fight with your friends – you can also play through Mansions of Madness for a similar experience with solo or co-op gameplay.
The Haunted Mansion – Call of the Spirits
- Check out The Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits on Amazon .
The Haunted Mansion: Call of the Spirits is one of many gorgeous Disney board games, brought to life with a colourful aesthetic, wonderfully cartoonish art, and a funky map that guides the action. In this haunting adventure, you’re tasked with wandering the titular Haunted Mansion, seeking out spirits and attempting to help them move on. Some spirits are friendly, and socialising with them will aid you on your quest. Others – the Hitchhiking Ghosts – will attempt to derail your plans and lose you points.
As you travel through the Mansion, the Endless Hallway rotates around you, letting you access new rooms and gather more points. At the end of gameplay, the player with the most points – the most haunted player – will win.
This is a game that’s great for everyone, of all ages. It’s easy to teach, features accessible gameplay, and keeps the action fresh with new events and ghost encounters littering your path and every playthrough. If you don’t win this spooky romp the first time, give it another spin – you’ll find new treasures in each round.
- Check out Disney Villainous , Marvel Villainous and Star Wars Villainous on Amazon.
Disney Villainous is a light-hearted horror romp that asks a simple question – what if the villains of Disney stories actually won ? This game, which uses its own unique engine and gameplay mechanics, is all about embodying one of six main villains in a quest to achieve total world domination. On your player board, you’ll find a number of locations to to conquer, each of which will bring you closer to your nefarious goals.
By playing select cards from a villain deck, you can claim new powers and locations, reducing the total power pool on the board. Other villains will vie for your crown, playing their own decks and attempting to exploit your weaknesses – but if you can prove you’re the most ‘evil’ of them all, you’ll wind up ruling the entire world.
While not strictly a horror game, the aesthetics and premise of Villainous make it a spooky and dastardly romp through the darker parts of Disney lore. If you’re keen for more, there’s also a Marvel variant of this game, a Star Wars variant, and plenty of additional Disney expansion packs which introduce new threats.
The Night Cage
- Check out The Night Cage on Amazon .
The Night Cage is a creepy horror adventure set in an ever-changing dungeon maze that is only lit up while you have a light source with you. In your quest to escape this dungeon, illustrated on a map board with interchangeable tiles, you only have dim candles as your companions. These light up short paths ahead of you, but don’t extend to the entire dungeon – or the horrors that await you in the shadows.
In your path through the darkness, you may come across helpful items – like keys – but you can also run into the terrifying ‘Wax Eaters’ which occupy the dark alongside you. Trust us, you don’t want to run into the Wax Eaters.
If you’re looking for more genuinely horrific board games this Halloween season, The Night Cage is certainly a game to consider. With its claustrophobic atmosphere and skin-crawling themes, it’s perfect for a spooky night in.
Horrified & Horrified: American Monsters
- Check out Horrified and Horrified: American Monsters on Amazon.
Horrified and Horrified: American Monsters are the perfect set of Halloween board games. Your goal, in both these games, is to hunt down and destroy a variety of monsters, each with their own unique skills and gameplay mechanics. In Horrified , you’re facing off against the classic ‘Universal’ monsters – Frankenstein’s Monster and his Bride, Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, and more. In American Monsters , you’re facing off with modern cryptids including Mothman, The Jersey Devil, and the Chupacabra.
Each time you let a villager fall into a monster’s hands, the ‘Terror’ level of your town goes up. If every investigator dies along the way, you fail in your quest. These stakes create a real sense of tension in Horrified as you make moves across a beautiful game board, and hold your breath for dice rolls and monster attacks.
The best thing about the Horrified series is that it can be played solo, if you choose. This mode takes nothing away from the game, and lets everyone enjoy the madness.
Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train
- Check out Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train on Amazon .
Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train is a spooky adaptation of Ticket to Ride that features Halloween-themed locales like ‘Circus Dread’ and the ‘Pumpkin Patch’. While the mechanics remain the same from the base game – you’re still trying to claim the most train routes on the map – they’re all given a spooky twist with new playing pieces and special Parade Floats to claim.
The artwork and theming of this standalone game is delightful, and should attract keen new players – even if the original Ticket to Ride is a bit dry for them. There’s just something so fun about the game’s haunted carriages and trick-or-treat gameplay loop. Like the original game, this one is also very easy to teach, and operates well as an early introduction to the world of board games.
This Halloween, go for a spooky ride. Whether you land on the Gingerbread House or the Deserted School, you’ll have a blast claiming each and every track.
One Night Ultimate Werewolf
- Check out One Night Ultimate Werewolf on Amazon
One Night Ultimate Werewolf is fantastic if you’ve got a full party of players. It’s quick to set-up, easy to learn, and it integrates with an app that provides spooky music and narration. If you’re looking for the perfect Halloween atmosphere, this game is guaranteed to give you the shivers.
In One Night Ultimate Werewolf , you are the resident of a sleepy village. You may be an innocent, you may have a special power, or you may be a werewolf in disguise (determined by random handout). If you are a villager, it’s your job to ‘interrogate’ suspects in a game of social deduction and work out who’s doing evil deeds. As a werewolf, you need to avoid suspicion and kill as many villagers as possible before being discovered. Surviving the night requires a lot of luck and observing your party companions closely – leading to a final showdown where the suspects are accused.
While not strictly designed as a ‘board game’, One Night Ultimate Werewolf functions quite like one. And if you love the gameplay, but want something with more complex mechanics, it’s also been adapted into a tabletop-friendly ‘ One Week ‘ variant.

The Best Halloween Board Games In 2023
Get your fright on with the best board games to play this Halloween.
It's almost time for Halloween! A night of thrills and chills, full of ghosts and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night. Or, if you're not into that, it could be a cosy time to enjoy Autumn at its best.
RELATED: Best Halloween Party Games In 2023
No matter what vibe you want this Halloween, there's a board game for you. Whether you're curling up with Shadows In The Forest, or betraying your friends in Betrayal At House On The Hill, here are the best board games to play this Halloween.
Horrified: Greek Monsters
Assume the roles of Greek gods in Horrified: Greek Monsters as you travel through iconic locations from Greek mythology to recapture legendary beasts. The likes of Cerberus and Medusa await up to five players with as many as six monsters in play. The more monsters you throw into the mix, the harder your quest becomes.
- Gorgeous board and game pieces.
- Can be played solo or with friends.
- Lairs add more random chance to Horrified.
- There are more Halloween-y editions of Horrified available.
Work with your friends to explore Ancient Greece and track down some of the most dangerous mtyhological beasts and villains of the time.
From the Gorgon to the Chimera, this edition of Horrified also introduces new Lairs to the formula. You'll never know which monster you're facing until you find and uncover their lair, adding a random element to the game. It can be played in groups, or, if you're having a quiet night in for Halloween, also completely solo!
Betrayal At House On The Hill: 3rd Edition
The classic social seduction game Betrayal at House on the Hill received a refreshed, updated version last year. Step into the haunted house and explore its secrets, but be careful, as one player is a traitor getting ready to work against you. Spooky and atmospheric, it's sure to have you pointing fingers at all your friends.
- Far better construction quality.
- Gripping gameplay.
- Better, more accessible rules.
- Some controversial changes from second edition.
- Tiles and items can feel repetitive.
Betrayal At House On The Hill is a classic of tabletop gaming, and, thanks to its spooky house, plenty of ghosts, and an untrustworthy friend you'll need to suss out, it's a perfect addition to your Halloween night.
If you like hidden-role games and a bit of social deduction, slathered with creepy aesthetics and plenty of suspense, getting your friends together and then selling them out to a horde of ghosts is a great way to pass the time.
Hocus Pocus: The Game
Based on the 1993 movie, band together to take on the Sanderson Sisters in by asking questions about the cards other players have in their hands, and brewing the best potion possible.
- Fantastic construction quality.
- Based on a popular, classic Disney movie.
- Quick games.
- Deceptively complex rules.
Hocus Pocus is an absolute Halloween staple. The 1993 Disney classic followed the three Sanderson Witches, and in the board game, you can take them on in a card-drafting, pattern-matching, potion-brewing cooperative romp.
Mixing together Hocus Pocus' campness and whimsy, with a deceptively strategic and challenging game, everyone from casual Disney likers to diehard tabletop aficionados will enjoy what Ravensburger has brewed up here.
Arkham Horror Third Edition
A Lovecraftian jaunt across the world, Arkham Horror is an atmospheric game set in the 1920s that has you investigating the Ancient Ones. Fight cults, escape from impossible monsters, and fend off insanity in this single-player or cooperative megahit.
- The best version of a classic.
- An immersive 1920s theme and gripping story.
- Can be played solo or cooperatively.
- Games can drag on.
Nobody does horror like HP Lovecraft, and Arkham Horror takes you straight into the world of Cthulhu and the Ancient Ones in a globetrotting mystery.
Work together or on your own to manage your sanity, hunt for clues, and fend off shadowy cults, all in a luxuriously realised 1920s world. Games of Arkahm Horror can last up to three hours, though, so make sure your group is in it for the long haul before pulling out this tabletop masterpiece.
Shadows In The Forest
Shadows In The Forest is a really interesting game that plunges you into a deep, dark forest. Turn out all the lights, and one player moves a small LED light (or candle, in older versions) to try and illuminate the other players' gnomes as they dart through the shadows and hide in the trees. There aren't any monsters or ghouls here, just the dark and a whole lot of gnomes, which could make it a perfect, chiller game to play with younger kids at the end of Halloween night.
- Immersive playing in the dark.
- Not too scary for younger players.
- Using light as a mechanic is very creative.
- Needs near-total darkness to play.
- Younger players might be scared of the dark more than the game.
- Older versions of the game that used real candles can be a fire hazard.
Shadows In The Forest is perhaps one of the most immersive tabletop games you can play, simply because of its unique gimmick: you need to turn out all the lights.
By playing in the complete dark, one player must move their light source around to illuminate the trees and hopefully find the other plays' gnome-like-Shadowlings hidden behind them. By carefully moving and working together, the Shadowlings need to avoid the light, less they be caught and taken out of the game.
It's not a particularly spooky game. The Shadowlings are adorable, and it all has a comfy, twee atmosphere to it. If you want something less frightning to close out Halloween with, Shadows In The Forest could be the ideal game to take a look at.
Find yourself in the heart of the Salem Witch Trials in this hidden-role card game. Accuse your friends, betray your allies, and avoid the ducking chair as you try and root out who among you is a regular townsperson, and who might be a witch.
- A mature and intellectual game.
- Gorgeous packaging and card art.
- A sneaky, stabby secret-role game.
- The subject matter might not be in good taste for some players.
Halloween is colourful, camp, and very, very spooky, but if you want something a bit more bloodcurdlingly mature, why not explore the 1692 Salem Witch Trials?
In Salem 1692, you play as the townspeople, hoping to uncover the witches among you.
Use your Tryal cards to try and sniff out the true witches among you, and hope the fingers don't point at you in a tense game of accusations. Some players may not find the subject matter particularly palatable, considering the focus on historical accuracy to the actual Witch Trials that saw women murdered. But if you can stomach that, this is a different flavour of horror that could make your Halloween one to remember.
When Is Halloween?
Fortunately, Halloween isn't one of those holidays that moves around like Easter. It happens the same day every year, on October 31.
This year, that means Halloween falls on a Tuesday, so you may be looking at planning your Halloween celebrations for the weekend before, on October 28 and 29.
Am I Too Old For Halloween?
While there are certain aspects of Halloween that are for kids, like Trick-or-Treating, there is no reason to completely ditch the holiday when you're older!
No matter how old you are, you can always a scary movie or putting up some decorations . You could even help make the night special for the kids in your area by setting up a truly spooky Trick-or-Treating experience for them.

Creep, sneak, and dash your way through hordes of ghouls and eerie ectoplasms in this roguelite reimagining of the classic Atari adventure!
Chills and stealthy thrills abound In Haunted House, a reimagining of the classic Atari adventure! Players take control of Lyn Graves, the precocious niece of legendary treasure hunter Zachary Graves. Lyn visits her uncle’s mansion with her closest compatriots, only to find the house overrun with ghouls and monsters who quickly grab and spirit away her friends. In order to free her uncle and her friends, and capture all the supernatural foes, Lyn must find the shattered pieces of a magical urn and put them back together. Through procedurally generated room layouts, shifting walls, unpredictable enemy placements, and unique ghostly encounters, Lyn must creep, sneak, and dash her way through hordes of ghouls and eerie ectoplasms in order to locate her friends and uncle. Each urn shard is fiercely guarded by a bone-chilling boss — with 3D isometric stealth gameplay, Lyn must think on her feet to conquer each challenge. When she gets knocked out by a shadowy specter, she winds up back at the Haunted House’s entrance and must face an entirely new floor layout and enemy placement, ensuring each run is unique. Features Resurrected Roguelite: Haunted House doubles down on stealth and mystifying challenges while adding roguelite elements, ensuring no two runs are the same. All-Ages Thrill Ride: The whimsical, cartoonish art style only thinly veils the chills and thrills in Haunted House! Expertly riding the line between goofy and spooky, Haunted House features primarily stealth-based gameplay and light combat sequences. Unlockable Characters: As Lyn explores the Haunted House, she’ll free her trapped friends, who become playable characters you can use to dive deeper into the mansion. Each friend possesses different stats, so depending on who you explore the mansion with, it’ll be a new experience! Atari Easter Eggs: The game is full of collectibles and lore based on the original Haunted House and other classic favorites from Atari’s golden age. Sneaky Shivers: With combat de-emphasized, players must focus on stealth movement and solving challenges unseen in the shadows, along with utilizing the arsenal of traps and items at their disposal to distract the ghoulies hunting Lyn. Lyn must collect gems to power up the skills and perks that make her that much stronger during the next trip through the mansion’s labyrinth.

Top 13 places in Russia where you may face a ghost
1. Kusovnikov House in Moscow
In the 19 th century house № 17 on Myasnitskaya street in central Moscow was inhabited by a rich, but very greedy couple – Pyotr and Sofya Kusovnikov, who scrimped on almost everything. Extremely suspicious, they used to hide money from their servants in different places. Once they hid some in the fireplace, but the janitor accidentally burned it when lighting the fire. When she found out, Sofya died instantly of a broken heart, her husband passed away a little later. Since then, the ghost of a hunched old man in a coat has routinely appeared on the street near the house – this is Pyotr Kusovnikov mourning his lost money.
2. Sokol metro station
During WWI, not far from the modern Sokol station of the Moscow metro, a cemetery for fallen soldiers was located. In 1918, mass executions of White officers and priests by the Reds were held there. All this led to the appearance of ghosts in the dark tunnels of the station. Early in the morning diaphanous figures with festering wounds can be seen there.
3. St. Michael’s Castle in St. Petersburg
This castle was a royal residence built by order of Tsar Paul I. On March 21, 1801, he was killed there by a group of conspirators. It is considered that the restless spirit of the tsar was unable to leave the castle. It appears there in the corridors with a burning candle in its hand.
4. Znamenskaya Tower in Yaroslavl
During the Civil War in Russia (1917-1922), a group of White troops held positions in the Volkovsky theater in Yaroslavl. The Red commissar in command of the siege promised to spare their lives. However, he lied and all the Whites were executed at the Znamenskaya Tower. Since then, the ghost of the commissar who didn’t keep his promise has been seen at the place of his crime.
5. Igumnov House in Moscow
The house at 43 Bolshaya Yakimanka Street in Moscow, also known as “Igumnov House,” serves today as the residence of the French ambassador. It was built at the request of the industrialist Nikolay Igumnov in the late 19 th century. He settled his young mistress here, but one day caught her with a lover. The lover was kicked out, but the girl was never seen again. It is believed that the outraged Igumnov bricked her up in a wall. During Soviet times, people often saw the ghost of a young girl walking through the walls with deep, plaintive sighs.
6. House of Rasputin in St. Petersburg
The flat on the second floor at 64 Gorokhovaya street in St. Petersburg is today a usual residential apartment. However, in the early 20th century it was home to one of the most mystical figures in Russian history – Grigory Rasputin. His ghost sometimes appears here, scaring inhabitants with its clunking steps and grunting in dark corners.
7. House on the Embankment
This house at 2 Serafimovicha Street, simply known as “House on Embankment,” is among the most famous in the Russian capital, known as the place of residence for the Soviet crème de la crème : writers, artists, actors, generals, athletes. However, it also has a dark history. During the Great Purge, a campaign of political repressions in the USSR, dozens of the house’s inhabitants were arrested and executed. Today, the house is full of the ghosts of those victims, who sometimes appear in their old dwelling place.
8. Tower of the old hospital in Ryazan
Among the high-rise modern buildings at 15 Gorky Street in Ryazan is an old tower – all that remains of the old hospital. At night, a lonely dark figure can be seen walking in this tower. This is the ghost of Alexander Smitten, who administered the hospital more than a century ago.
9. Griboyedov Canal in St. Petersburg
During a misty night in March, one can see the ghost of a young girl near the Griboyedov Canal in St. Petersburg. Her face is blue because of asphyxiation, and there is a big red mark on her neck caused by a rope. This is famous revolutionary Sophia Perovskaya, who assassinated Tsar Alexander II and was hanged for her deed. To meet this ghost is a bad omen, and can cost nocturnal pedestrians their lives.
10. Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin
There is a legend that when the Kremlin in Nizhny Novgorod was being built, the constructors were unable to finish one of the towers. It kept falling down. In the end, they decided to make a sacrifice and to build the tower on the blood of the first person who passed by. It happened to be a pregnant woman hurrying to the river for water. She was seized and bricked up in the tower alive. The ghost of a pale woman holding a baby has appeared near this place ever since.
11. Oldenburg Palace near Voronezh
Built in the late 19th century, the palace belonged to Princess Eugenia of Leuchtenberg. Today her ghost rises from the deep casemates of the palace to wander through its rooms and corridors. There is also another ghost there, much older — the ghost of a young peasant girl. It is even said that Princess Eugenia saw it when she was alive.
12. Stalin’s country house near Sochi
Stalin’s ghost can be seen at his country house, located today within the Green Groove hotel near Sochi. The “father of the nations” walks in his white jacket, smoking his trademark pipe.
13. Psychiatric hospital near Nizhny Novgorod
Near the modern psychiatric hospital in the village of Lyakhovo near Nizhny Novgorod, one can see an abandoned old building. Several dozen years ago a young girl hanged herself there because of unrequited love. At night it is possible to see a white silhouette and hear the moaning and cries of the “love-stricken schoolgirl” as the locals call her.

Idaho murders: Former first floor tenant of Moscow home says he couldn't hear activity from other floors
Four students were killed on the second and third floors of the house in november, while two others on the first floor survived.
Ted Williams on Idaho murder investigation: 'Nothing can be ruled out at this stage'
Fox News contributor Ted Williams explains how the Idaho murder investigation may be impacted by new photos that show the inside of the home where four students were killed.
FIRST ON FOX: MOSCOW, Idaho — A former tenant of the Moscow, Idaho, home where four University of Idaho students were murdered on Nov. 13 says it was difficult to hear activity on the second and third floors of the home from the first, where he lived.
Ryan Augusta — a healthcare worker and local business owner who now lives in Genesee, Idaho — told Fox News Digital in an interview that when he lived on the first floor of the home on King Road in 2019, unless his roommate was playing the television loudly on the second floor, he typically "heard nothing" from the second and third floors.
"I wouldn't have heard it from downstairs," Augusta, 43, said when asked whether he could hear activity coming from the second and third floors of the house when he lived on the first floor.

At the time of the November quadruple homicide, there were six tenants listed on the lease for the home located near the university's campus, next door to Greek Row, where the student fraternity and sorority houses are located.
The house has three floors, and each floor has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The first floor has a door accessible from the driveway, and the second floor has a sliding door accessible from the ground and back patio area because the house was built on a slope in the backyard.
Augusta, a U.S. Army veteran, said he did not know of any crime in the area while he lived there.
Moscow police have said that two of the victims' roommates — who lived on the first floor — survived the attack that left Ethan Chapin, 20; Xana Kernodle, 20; Kaylee Goncalves, 21; and Madison Mogen, 21, dead in the early morning hours of Nov. 13.

The two roommates on the first floor arrived home at 1 a.m.; Kernodle and Chapin returned home around 1:45 a.m.; and Goncalves and Mogen got back just before 2 a.m. Authorities believe the four were stabbed to death between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., likely while asleep.

Police responded to a 911 call reporting an unconscious person from one of the two surviving roommates' phones at 11:58 a.m. on Nov. 13 and located the four deceased students upon arrival shortly thereafter. All victims had multiple stab wounds and "some" had defensive wounds. An unknown number of friends were at the scene when a 911 call was made from one of the victims' roommates' phones to report un unconscious person that morning.

IDAHO POLICE SAY SIXTH PERSON ON LEASE AT HOUSE WHERE FOUR COLLEGE STUDENTS WERE MURDERED
In 2019, when Augusta lived at the house, the residence had code locks on each bedroom door because each bedroom was rented individually, he said.

It was unclear if that was still the case when the victims began their lease on June 5. Some other victims' social media posts showed images of the home that reflected that the locks had since been changed. Team Idaho & Team Washington Property Management, which oversees the property, had no comment on Friday.

Augusta lived there with a handful of other people, all men at the time, who were a mix of students or employees at the University of Idaho or Washington State University, or workers at nearby businesses. Augusta lived there for six months and moved out in December 2019.
He called the residence at the time a "community house."

"You never locked the [side] screen door. Why would you lock the screen door? I mean, you've got locks on all the rooms, so we never locked the screen door," Augusta said.

He said people would frequently use a "walk path" that led directly from the area of the King Road home to the nearby fraternities.

"People would continue to walk up that path to that parking lot back there because they probably parked back there, and they lived in the [next-door] brown complex or something," Augusta explained. "So, yeah, people walk through that all the time. You would always hear people out front. Always trash on the ground, broken bottles — it was pretty nasty."

The former tenant said he did not have many concerns about his own safety in the neighborhood, but added, "I was concerned for everyone else's safety at 1122, but that's because there were so many outrageous parties."
"I was more worried about drunken hooligans just causing a ruckus," he said.

Augusta said he has since submitted two tips to police, and is considering a third based on his experience around Moscow and living at the home.
Moscow police have continued to describe the brutal murders as "an isolated, targeted attack." University of Idaho students who left campus for Thanksgiving break were given the option to stay home and learn remotely instead of returning to campus with a suspect still on the run.
