Well this is a most pleasant surprise. What with the legal wrangling over ownership of the franchise still going on, it’s amazing to see anything Jason Voorhees-related that’s actually officially licensed coming out. And, if god forbid this f****** virus is still keeping people in doors by the time summer hits us, then at least you’ll have something else to do with the folk you live with [if they’re not Friday The 13th fans, there’s plenty of time to convert them].

Says the press release….

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!

Full game contents include:

6 Player Boards
1 Cabin Board
10 Critical Supply Cards
6 Backpack Cards
64 Fear Cards
88 Blood Spatter Tokens
6 Escape Tokens
6 Player Tokens
1 Night Tracker
67 Supply Tokens
1 Camp Bag
1 Rulebook

About Dr Lenera 2937 Articles
I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
