Roll your dice and grab your snacks as you step into this fun-laden board game.
Halloween is several months away but we are already getting ready for our favorite holiday of the year. Getting prepared for a good night is always on the cards and it's not all about getting outside. There are many fun things to do with your friends and family indoors that are just as celebratory but you gotta know your specs! What better way than to spend many an hour nestled in the comfort of our homes than an engrossing board game.
We've had many a fun experience playing Ludo, Monopoly, Snakes & Ladders, and Life growing up but c'mon now we need something to really match the mood. Well guess what, there is a fantastic (or should we say freaktastic) game of Boooo-opoly which is the Halloween version of the namesake market-business game we all love so much. This special edition is so cool you can actually buy haunted houses, land on spooky properties and you'll be missing turns being "Scared Stiff" instead of going to jail. The general rules are pretty much the same otherwise and you should have no trouble easing into it.
As you make your way across the ghostly town board you will be able to pick up Trick or Treat cards and even get some free candy as you visit each haunted spot. According to online store Kohl: "The Boooo-opoly Halloween Game by Late For The Sky allows players to buy favorite Halloween properties, collect Haunted Houses and trade them in for screams."
There are two versions to play with this game, either the traditional game which is pretty much like the original Monopoly game. If you do that, there is a chance you could be at it for hours and hours because you know, it's designed to pretty much never ends until someone buys the whole board out. The other version is a faster one-hour version, to make things way more interesting and easier, plus you can play multiple games this way.
You can get your very own version of Boooo-opoly right on the Kohl's website or on Amazon for just $20 and be sure to get it well before Halloween! Going by some of the reviews on the latter store, we are definitely in for a treat. Customer Katrina L.

You can land on cool streets such as "Elm Street" and "Witch Way". Very fun game suited perfectly for Halloween or any time of year, actually. Great for kids 10 and above. (Younger ones won't understand it and the pieces are small and may cause choking hazards). Very pleased with the purchase itself. It was a bit slow on arrival, however. It showed up RIGHT on Halloween, though it was slated to show up a day or two before. However, it was new, and in great condition, and my son and I have had a lot of fun with it. Highly recommended for family night."
