‘Friday The 13th: Horror At Camp Crystal Lake’ Official Board Game Coming This Summer

While we all deal with the self distancing quarantine that is coming along with the Coronavirus pandemic, many families are trying to find fun things to do while being stuck at home. So, video games and board games are becoming rapidly more popular than ever. And, there seems to be a game out there for everyone, whether it be light family fun or a zombie apocalypse. And, on the more horror end of the spectrum, one of the most iconic monsters of all time is getting his own official board game!

Jason Voorhees is leaving Crystal Lake and coming straight to your home in the new officially licensed Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake board game from Op Games! Here is the synopsis for the game!

In this anxiety-driven, press-your-luck horror game, players take on the roles of cliché camp counselors like the stereotypical Nerd, the Partier, the Nice Guy, the Final Girl, the Diva, and the Jock as they must rely on chance and strategy to survive five nights being terrorized by blood-thirsty Jason.

Summertime fun is dying out at Camp Crystal Lake, where masked and murderous Jason Voorhees is on the hunt for camp counselor blood. And your unlucky day is looming…

The Friday the 13th franchise is headed into the world of board games for the very first time with Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake, coming this summer from The Op Games!

In this anxiety-driven, press-your-luck horror game, players take on the roles of cliché camp counselors like the stereotypical Nerd, the Partier, the Nice Guy, the Final Girl, the Diva, and the Jock as they must rely on chance and strategy to survive five nights being terrorized by blood-thirsty Jason.

Coveted tools of survival are just within your reach to randomly draw from a camp bag: cast iron pans, gasoline, cleavers, flashlights and more. Collect them to make various combinations for points and use additional Fear cards for ways to escape his Attacks.

You only have strategy and supplies to keep you alive, but the odds of returning safely to the camp get slimmer with every turn! Steal supplies from your friends, take them with you to the cabin, or keep what you find and wait out the nights to be the last one standing!

The game is set to hit shelves (or the online ordering world) this summer with a suggested price tag of $29.99. This release is pretty surprising, considering all the legal issues plaguing the franchise at the moment, but we gotta say, this is pretty awesome!
