Jason Voorhees Returns from the Dead Again in Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake

by W. Eric Martin

With Friday the 13th upon us, U.S. publisher The Op (formerly known as “USAopoly”) has decided to capitalize on the misfortune associated with that day by announcing Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake, a game for 3-6 players, aged 17 and up, that bears a sixty-minute playing time and is due out in Q3 2020.

Here’s a quick summary of the game setting:

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 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 have only 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! Reach into the bag to see what you will find!

Everyone knows that you should never place a body part into anything not fully visible when in a horror film, but apparently that’s a requirement here. Ideally you’ll pull all parts of your hand back out of that bag, too!
