Subject: Looking for a portable "horror" game for travelling rss

I like games such as "Space Hulk: Death Angel", "Castle Panic" and "Not Alone" (albeit not solo). These are fantasy and sci-themes. I'm looking for a horror one, that can be played solo (and that I can bring on travels).

E.g: Would Ghost Stories be portable, and not take up much table space? "Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu" might also be OK... Any others?

Thank you.

Arkham Horror: The Card Game would be an obvious choice. Once you've built the investigator deck(s) you want to use, the footprint is rather small. Basically, you only need a small bag of tokens, the scenario deck(s) you want to play and a few cards you'd like to add or upgrade between scenarios.

Well I don't know if it's any good as I haven't played it, but horror and portable? It has to be Zombie in my Pocket. At least the title fits 100%

Print Unbroken and get some tokens and a d6 and you're covered.

Seconding Arkham Horror TCG. Might also take a gander at the Kickstarter for Tiny Epic Zombies.

Great little game. Nothing worth writing home about but a good solo game for a bit of fun.

Some scenarios take up a decent amount of space on the table. Probably quite a bit more than you'd want in a travel game.

Ghost Stories isn't a big game. I put the game plus all promos\expansions in a single box.

So I think it's reasonable to carry.



And it's awesome.

+1 Elder sign as well. Great travel package and you might even be able to squeeze Unseen forces with a slightly larger box.
