It's the season to be spooked, scared and terrified. That's right, Halloween is upon us again. Streets are suddenly flooded with spunky skeletons, itchy spiders and more of so called spookyness.

Why not hold a Halloween-themed game night with spooky games and themed nibbles?
To get you started, here's my top ten, all-time favorite, spooky games.

One of my first board games ever and what a fun game to play as a kid. Sneak through the rooms of a haunted house, never knowing where the glow-in-the-dark skull is going to trigger the trap.

First one up the stairs wins the race, but beware...the house itself comes to live!

You know that when the tv starts talking to you, it is time to scream and run!

Collect Keystones to vanquish the Gatekeeper, heed the advice of the voices coming from your tv and race the ticking clock.

Yet beware not to be sucked into the tv set...

The night slowly falls and everyone goes to sleep, knowing someone will not wake up anymore the next morning.

Whom of your friends are in fact werewolves, preying on you while you sleep? You can hang those whom you suspect, but maybe they are innocent?

A great party game with a macabre twist. Light some candles, play some mood music and start howling!

Enter the world of the horror movie, casting your own heroes and plotting out their heroic movie to starr in. But beware, slasher action and horror endings might happen to your beloved movie heroes before they can make it to the end credits.

Fake blood at the ready? Aaaand action!

Die the most horrific death after having lived the most unlucky and traumatic life.

No really, it scores you points!

A gloomy, grizzly, great card game, with dark artwork and moaning maniacs. Excellent for a night of storytelling about how the horror sneaked into the lives of your card characters.

If the rules arn't terryfying enough already, the game theme sure will. Enter a world of Lovecraftian horror and struggle to prevent an ancient evil to waken and enter our world.

Battle monsters, cast gruesome spells and try to close interdimensional gates... Dying is not the worst fate that can befall you in this game.

Explore the old haunted mansion on the hill...I mean, what can go wrong, right?

As rooms unfold, items are collected and omens counted. When too many bad signs have been seen, one of the players will reveal himself as the source of all evil and battle his previous party members to end their lives in a most gruesome and delightful way possible.

You are alone in the night, in the vast darkness that is space. You're trying to get home again, but things seem to go wrong.

Is there something more scary than knowing some of your compatriots are Cylon agents in disguise, plotting your demise? Who to trust, who to trust?

When the big box Arkham Horror brings is a bit roo bulky, why not venture into the Lovecraftian museum to battle the Elder Gods who stir in the darkness that is the night?

Elder sign is fast paced, which also means you can meet your doom quicker than you can say Nyarlathotep!

It's zombie madness all over again. As one player assumes the shambling, gurgling, moaning role of the zombie masses, the other players battle to fend of the walking dead and complete their goals before time runs out.

This game comes with each own, spooky soundtrack and will have you shivering in fun and fear.

(note: players will have to make their own zombie noises )
