It’s almost that time of year again when Halloween is just a few weeks away and people all over the world are starting to buy their supplies for Halloween including their Halloween costumes.
Halloween though isn’t just about the Halloween costumes it can also be a great opportunity to spend some quality time with the family, have fun and generally relax. If you’re thinking of spending the night in with the family this Halloween then you may want to consider a Halloween family game night. A night where you spend a few hours playing some spooky board games.
To help you decide which games to play we’ve put together a list of our 4 favourite spooky Halloween board games.
First Choice: Boo-opoly
It’s a spooky Halloween twist to the classic property trading board game, Monopoly. Halloween has arrived and it’s now time to start trading some spooky properties like haunted houses. But along the way you may find your progress hindered by bats in your belfry.
The game equires 2-6 players to move their way through the game trading properties and attempting to become a Halloween property tycoon. Along the way you may win a Jack-olantern carving competition or even get the chance to eat some slimy spider tacos at the Monster Mash.

The [easyazon-link asin=”B002FCDPYE”]Ouija Board[/easyazon-link] is an adult board game which has been around in some form or another since early 1100 BC in china. But it was in 1890 that two businessmen actually put together the setup of the Ouija which we know to day.
With Ouija you sit around the board in a group with the aim of conducting a seance, all parties place their hands onto the planchette and then try to spell out the words created by the movement of the planchette object.
Whilst using the Ouija can be fun caution should also be taken and you should know how to use a Ouija board safely before playing.
