Fireball Island just got a whole lot bigger. There’s just one problem: It’s covered with spiders, and they have a nasty habit of “popping up” all over the place. Use the caves to get to the peninsula. Navigate the chasm to scoop up valuable spider eggs. Stop for a snapshot on the scenic bridge. But watch out! When Vul-Kar starts rumbling, the spiders start jumping! The Spider Springs expansion adds a new location to explore, a new kind of treasure to collect and a new hazard: spiders!
There is a hidden realm outside the world of the waking: a realm of wonder, imagination, and nightmares. After occult author Virgil Gray writes about his adventures in The Dream Lands, you decide to set forth and learn the truth for yourself. What is real, and what is fiction? And what secrets await in the dark, forbidden places beyond the gates of sleep?
In an audacious bid for power, the Cult of the Dragon leads the charge in an unholy campaign to bring Tiamat back to Faerûn. Alongside their dragon allies and the Red Wizards of Thay, they sweep from town to town, laying waste to all those who oppose them and gathering a hoard of riches for their dread queen. InTyranny of Dragons, the threat of annihilation has become so dire that groups as disparate as the Harpers and Zhentarim are banding together to fight the cult. Celebrate the rerelease of this classic D&D 5E Adventure with an all new Alternate Art Edition Compilation.’
You arrived too late to stop the loathsome rite, and a monstrous, transdimensional Ancient One tears through reality. As howls and screams cut through the night, there is only one path left for your fearless investigators—hold back the horde long enough to somehow reverse the summoning. Arkham Horror: Final Hour is a fully co-operative, fast-paced board game for one to four players. An endless tide of monsters sweeps across the Miskatonic University campus, and you must hold them back, all while searching desperately for the ritual components you need to put an end to this insanity.

It’s that time of year again, of spooky scary skeletons and frightfully sweet candy. It’s also the perfect time to try your hand at some thematically appropriate board games. To help you figure out what hair-raising experience you might want, we’ve compiled five of our favourite games for Halloween.
Dead of Winter
It’s a scenario repeated across all forms of zombie media. A survivor is alone in an abandoned convenience store, with valuable supplies needed by his companions in the camp. He doesn’t have enough gas to drive back and the horde is gathering outside. Back at the camp, tensions are rising as people suspect one of the survivors of deliberately sabotaging the defences. With Dead of Winter, you and your friends can play out that scenario.
A game for 2 to 5 players, Dead of Winter sees each player controlling a group of survivors in a frigid zombie apocalypse. Resources are stretched thin and scavenging for supplies is a dangerous job. To top it all off, not every player might have the groups best interest at heart. The game is kept moving by a series of events which progress the story and raise the tension which gets drawn regularly from the ‘Crossroads’ deck.
With a mix of social deduction and resource management, Dead of Winter is perfect for those looking for a cooperative game with a twist.
Enter the twisting streets of Arkham in a race against time and eldritch horrors from beyond time.
A fully co-operative game for one to six players, Arkham Horror sees your and your friends taking on the roles of 12 different investigators. Each of which has their own strengths and weaknesses. Face down the elder gods and old ones in a series of different scenarios, each of which shifts and changes the town of Arkham leading to different play experiences. Whether you love the Cthulhu mythos or aren’t with the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Arkham Horror provides a excellent cooperative experience, with a mix of investigation, puzzle solving, and action to keep all players engaged and excited.
Axis and Allies Zombies
Halloween is admittedly a silly and sometimes gonzo holiday, with as many wacky and fun moments as it has frightening ones. To that, what better game to celebrate than one which takes a serious concept and makes it ridiculous. Axis and Allies Zombies upend the usual slow and strategic gameplay of the series with the introduction of a crazed horde of zombie soldiers.
Not just a simple reskin of the classic strategy game, Axis and Allies Zombies feature streamlined gameplay that makes it a great entry point for players new to the series. It ups the ante as well for experienced players, bringing in all sorts of new toys into the warzones of WW2 to fight the new undead threat. Chainsaw tanks and zombie controlling beams can give a nation the technological edge needed to win the war… or to keep those endless undead hordes away from their capitals.
Bloodborne The Card Game
While the last few games have had you on the back foot, struggling to survive against horrors both cosmic and undead, the next game on our list has you seek them out and hunt them down. Bloodborne The Card Game adapts the punishing gothic action game by Fromsoftware into a fast paced and action-packed card game.
Descend into the Chalice Dungeons and manage your hand of weapons and combos. You’ll need to act fast and use your wits while facing down the beasts of Yharnam. Work with your fellow hunters in this game for three to five players and prove yourself the superior hunter. Be warned however, fall to the monsters and you lose your blood points, possibly setting you back for the rest of the game.
Betrayal at House on the Hill
What better way to cap off this Halloween list than with the most frightening of monsters… your friends. Betrayal at the House on the Hill will see you and anywhere between two to six friends brave a haunted house together. Delve into a decrepit dwelling and face down terrifying foes and challenges. Work together to ensure your survival up until it comes time for one of the players to betray their companions.
With a set of high-quality components, Betrayal at House on the Hill is a highly immersive and suspenseful game. The house itself is highly configurable, ensuring that no two games will go the same way. If you like games of strategy with a hint of social deduction, exploring the haunted grounds of Betrayal at House on the Hill is for you.

“They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died. This was that cult, and the prisoners said it had always existed and always would exist, hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R’lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway.”
― H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu and Other Dark Tales
Polish your long sword and stock your spell component pouch. It’s time for another roleplaying journey with another Dungeons & Dragon Open House.

We’re a game store. We like games. It’s generally consistent with us being a game store. By now we generally assume it’s public knowledge. 🙂
We like new games. It’s a thing.

In Evolution: The Beginning, you’ll control a species adapting to survive and thrive in a dynamic ecosystem where food is scarce and predators roam. Evolutionary Traits like Flight and Horns will protect your species from Carnivores while a Long Neck will help them get food that others cannot reach, but resources are limited so you’ll have to pick and choose your way to victory. With hundreds of ways to evolve your species, every game unfolds in a beautifully unique way. Evolution: The Beginning borrows ideas and concepts from other games in the Evolution branded product line, but it is a stand-alone game.
As a skilled artisan, you will use tools-of-the-trade and careful planning to construct a stained glass window masterpiece in the Sagrada Familia. Players will take turns drafting glass pieces, represented by dice; carefully choosing where to place each one in their window. Windows have unique color and shade requirements, and similar dice may never be adjacent so placing each die is more challenging than the last. Fortunately, you’ll have just the right tools to help you through. Gain prestige by adapting to the preferences of your fickle admirers, and of course, by adding your own artistic flair while completing your glass masterpiece in Sagrada.
Ultimate Werewolf is an interactive game of deduction for two teams: villagers and werewolves. The villagers don’t know who the werewolves are, and the werewolves are trying to remain undiscovered while they slowly eliminate the villagers one at a time. Ultimate Werewolf Legacy uses gameplay similar to Ultimate Werewolf, but you no longer have single standalone games as players and the village itself have attributes that are retained between games, with events that take place in the first games having effects that ripple through remaining games. Make a bad decision early on, and it can haunt the village for years to come!
The intrepid crew are on their first away mission! Of course, your new captain was very diplomatic, and upon encountering giant bugs that may very well be the reason the aliens abandoned the planet, he chose to attempt to communicate. The bugs communicated by biting his head clean off. So now, once again without a captain, the crew must attempt to complete the mission by exploring tunnels and obtaining relics, all while fighting off a swarm of bugs! Through exploration and area defense, you’ll try to survive long enough to obtain the necessary relics — but should the bugs attack the shuttlecraft enough times, you won’t be able to escape the Dangerous Planet!
