Trick or Treat Studios is now accepting pre-orders for a board game inspired by John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween
Trick or Treat Studios has made a new hidden movement board game based on director John Carpenter’s 1978 masterpiece Halloween (watch that HERE), and you can secure your own copy of the game at THIS LINK! The estimated shipping date is August 1st, and it’s going for the price of $59.95.
Designed by Emerson Matsuuchi and featuring art by Nathan Thomas Milliner, the Halloween board game has the following description: It was the night HE came home… and one player must take on the role of Michael Myers! The others will control Laurie and her friends as they scramble to find weapons, the kids, and a way to escape. Their task will be made more difficult because Myers can only be seen when you’re looking right at him!
This 1 vs Many game by renowned designer Emerson Matsuuchi is the first time the original Halloween movie has been made into its own board game.
Player Count: 3-4
Play Time: 60 min
Locations in the board game include rooms from the Doyle, Wallace, Strode, and Myers houses. Milliner says he wore out his copy of the Halloween Blu-ray, studying the film to make sure the art for the game was as accurate as possible.
Directed by Carpenter from a screenplay he wrote with Debra Hill, the original Halloween has the following synopsis: THE NIGHT HE CAME HOME! Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween Night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois to kill again.
The film stars Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, P.J. Soles, Nancy Kyes, Charles Cyphers, Kyle Richards, Brian Andrews, John Michael Graham, and Nancy Stephens, with Nick Castle as the masked slasher Michael Myers.
This board game sounds like fun to me, so I would like to get the chance to play it sometime… but I’m not quite ready for fork over $60 for it at the moment.
