The belief that Fridays occurring on the 13th are unlucky may come between the superstitious and skeptics come the coincidental date, but nothing can split an outdoor retreat into two camps—victims and survivors—like Jason Voorhees from the namesake 80s horror franchise.
This summer, the annual fun and games will get a new name when The Op lets the relentless hockey masked murderer loose with Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake, the classic slasher film’s first ever officially licensed board game!
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!
Gather your closest group of frenemies to determine which horror movie archetype you’ll embody when the game invades store shelves this summer for $29.99. Keep a dutiful counselor eye on The Op’s social media channels for sneak peeks of this edge-of-your-seat survival game!
