Halloween rocks! But I have to admit that Christmas will always be my favorite holiday. I'm a bit of a sucker for nostalgia. So of course all holidays make me think of my child hood. All the anticipation and awe!
Because of this, I always try to play as many games as possible that are themed to these two holidays. Unfortunately there are very few good Christmas games, but Halloween has a lot that work well.

Here is the list of spooky games that I managed to get to the table this month.

With 10 plays this month, I think Elder Sign should take top billing.

I've played The Walking Dead 7 times in October. I think I've managed to develop a fast and fun solo play variant in "Atlanta be Damned".

I don't even know if I'd call it a game... and I am not a picky gamer by any means. It found it's way to the table 5 times this month.
It definitely fits the bill and works well as a "start player" game when about to play a bigger spooky game.

It doesn't feel like a Halloween game, but there are skeletons, werewolves and Vampires.
4 fun plays in October for me.

Halloween is a good excuse to pull out an old favorite. It's Alive is a fun little game. I've logged 38 plays of this game over the years and 4 of them were this month.
There's even an app now!

A nice card game with a Salem Witch trials theme. My daughter just happened to be studying the Witch trials in school. A good excuse to play it a couple of times.

I played one game of BITN... It always takes me a while to wrap my head around this game. I would really like to play it a lot more and get to the point where I'm better at planning moves in advance.

Early in the month my friend invited me over to play Fury. I had never had the opportunity to play before. I found it very enjoyable. This should also be an "every October" game.

Another game that doesn't really feel like Halloween while I play. But it really should. Played it once this month.

Got one of my gaming groups to play LNOE this month. Fits the theme nicely.

My daughter played Zombie Mosh with me. Not great with 2 players. I would like to try it with 4 or 5 and see how it plays to get a better feel. Fits the Halloween theme though.
