Spooky Board Games from Asmodee + a Giveaway

Spooky board games

With Halloween creeping up very quickly I can’t be the only parent on the fence about whether trick or treating is going to happen. If by any chance we end up spending the evening at home instead of visiting the neighbour’s houses hoping for full sized chocolate bars, we have lots of games from our friends at Asmodee for an epic family game night. Plus, the games totally fit the spooky theme of the evening.

Horror Month Games from Asmodee

Asmodee has long been one of our faves when it comes to games because they go above and beyond for plots and themes. You’re sure to find a game or two that will tick all the boxes for your family. You can find them at Walmart, Amazon.ca, and any other retailers that sell board games.

  • Mysterium Park: (MSRP:$39.99, 2-6 Players, Ages: 8+) Mysterium Park has many secrets to hide…Grave secrets! The park’s director has disappeared. Since then, strange events have occurred. You and your team of psychics decide to reveal the truth. Once on the fairgrounds, the ghost of the director communicates with you. With his help, will you be able to find the killer and scene of the crime?
  • Mysterium: (MSRP:$59.99, 2-7 Players, Ages: 10+) A horrible crime was committed on the grounds of Warwick Manor, thirty years ago. Now, the mansion is haunted by the ghost of the murdered servant, and it’s up to a group of psychic investigators to get to the bottom of the mystery. Images here.
  • Obscurio: (MSRP:$59.99, 2-8 Players, Ages: 10+) The Sorcerer is out to get you! Find your way among the illusions but beware of the traitor in your ranks! The Grimoire guides his team towards the exit using images, on which he points at certain details. In cooperation, the other players have to find it as quickly as possible while avoiding picking the wrong cards. However, a member of the team is a Traitor looking to lead the other players astray. A wide variety of Traps are on your way to the exit of the Library, making player communication harder! 
  • Unlock! Escape Adventures: (MSRP:$19.99, 2-6 Players, Ages: 10+) Unlock! is a cooperative card game inspired by escape rooms that uses a simple system which allows you to search scenes, combine objects, and solve riddles. Play Unlock! to embark on great adventures, while seated at a table using only cards and a companion app that can provide clues, check codes, monitor time remaining, etc. 
  • Best of the Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow: (MSRP:$19.99, 2-28 Players, Ages: 10+) This is a condensed version of the best elements of the Characters and New Moon expansions. Composed of 28 characters, this version will allow players to rediscover the game with a ton of new roles like the angel, the wild child, or the cursed wolf-father. Discover an even more immersive game experience!
  • The Ghosts of Castle Turnwall: (2-4 Players, Ages: 7+) The family game about ghosts who won’t be stopped by mere walls when they hunt for the best costumes throughout a rotating, magnetic castle. Each player has their own ghost inside the castle. When it is a player’s turn, that player can perform up to three magical movements. Not only can they move their ghost from space to space, but they can also move sliders underneath the floor or even rotate the whole playing board. Thanks to the magnets inside the sliders, the ghosts will fly through the castle’s walls while hunting for the best possible costume. The first player to collect four different costume pieces wins.


Our friends at Asmodee want one of our readers to have some of our favourites games so they have offered one Canadian reader the chance to win Mysterium, Mysterium Park, and The Ghosts of Turnwell Castle. Canada Only. Ends October 27, 2021. Good Luck!

    I hope I win Unlock!. I played another version of it with my partner and it was really fun.

    We are, I think – masked, and giving candy a rest period of a few days before delving in. I don’t know if that makes sense…. locally our numbers are not very bad, so I’m hoping it’s an okay choice. Kids have had such a rough time of it, this has been a huge portion of their lives so far. It’s all so unfair.

    I’ve played Mysterium at a friend’s place before, would love to own it

    No kids (yet) so no trick or treating, but going to mask up and hope we get some trick-or-treaters this year.

    Also Mysterium looks like fun.

    Our street is super busy, so every year we have this big weird setup to give treats through the window. We had Insane laboratory and Dirty Dinner the last few years. Kids just want the candies but the parents seem to like it! ๐Ÿ˜›

    We don’t go out Halloweening, because we don’t have young children at home. But we do decorate the house and hand out candies. My husband has a large animatronic dragon, and he makes a cave for it on our front porch.
