Halloween may be long past, but our love for zombie and horror board gaming is evergreen. There’s something about zombies, ghosts, werewolves, and other nightmares that are a great fit for huddling around a table with your friends. The horror genre is filled to the brim with great games, and we’ve assembled some of the best. This list is pulled together from my own tabletop experience and advice from the always-helpful community at BoardGameGeek.
Each game represents different mechanics, but since jump scares are nearly impossible in a board game, atmosphere is king in the horror genre. So gather your friends, dim the lights, and get ready to experience terror like only a board game can deliver. These are the best horror-themed board games.
