Hopefully these will help you fight boredom and also stay safe at home until all of this is over.
I have included a number of links for each game to give you more options on where to get it and also different prices. If a link doesn't apply to your location, you can still find a lot of these games elsewhere.
Horrified is an official Universal Studios Monsters game where the most iconic monsters are coming for you!
In the game you have to work together to defend the town from Frankenstein, Dracula, Frankensteins Bride, Wolfman, The Mummy, The Invisible Man and The Creature from the Black Lagoon (how cool!). It's aimed at ages ten and up and has an average game play time of around 1 hour.
What's really cool as well is the game includes seven paintable mini monster playing pieces and is suitable for 1-5 players.
You can grab this game right now from Amazon UK, Amazon US, John Lewis and 365 Games.
Who doesn't love Charades? Usually played on Christmas Day, this Halloween edition is perfect for not only October but all year! You'll most likely need a couple of people to play but it's so cheap you and your friends could all order it and play through webcam for now.
The game includes 50 charade cards along with 3 mini certificates for best, worst and the overall winner.
Grab this game from Amazon UK or Ebay.
This one might be best not to play during lockdown considering how many arguments it seems to cause but you can't deny it's pretty cool right?
The Nightmare Before Christmas Monopoly is the same classic game we've all played before but with a NBC twist. It includes 6 game pieces along with Jack Skellington cash and a Halloween Town themed playing board. Monopoly is suitable for 2-8 players.
You can grab your very own NBC Monopoly from Amazon UK, Amazon US and GAME.
Stupid Deaths looks like a lot of fun! A lot of dark fun that is... the goal of the game is to guess whether a somewhat stupid death is true or false. You're also being chased by the Grim Reaper and for every correct guess you can move your playing piece a little closer to home, get it wrong and you have to move the Reaper closer to you instead.
If the Reaper catches up with you then it's game over. You do also have extra life cards to save yourself but they're limited.
Stupid Deaths is aimed at 2-6 players and is for ages 12 and up.
Grab Stupid Deaths from Amazon UK, Amazon US and Menkind.
Bugacula is a short but very fun and very repetitive game so you can easily play this over and over again. The goal of the game is to light as many candles across the board as you can without Bugacula catching you and lure him onto the catapult where you can literally fire him across the board and out of the castle.
It's a fun game that might be a little tricky to set up (there are a lot of pieces) but it's aimed at ages 6 and up so is sure to be a lot of fun!
You can buy Bugacula from Amazon UK, Amazon US and Smyths Toys.
If you love Buffy then you will love this game! The goal of the game is to help Buffy and her friends defend the town of Sunnydale from vampires and demons. Oh and the big bad... who once again wants to open the Hellmouth and destroy everything as we know it.
You can use special abilities to fight the demons and also play as various characters from the show including Willow, Spike, Xander and even Buddy herself.
Help Buffy save the day and grab this game from Amazon UK and Amazon US.
If you've played Twister then you already know how to play this game and if you haven't, it's so easy to play. All you need to do is spin the dial to see where it lands, you then place your left/right hand/foot onto the square that goes with the Halloween symbol.
The more tangled up you get the more likely you are to fall and drop out of the game. This is always a classic game to play throughout the year and loads of fun. The fact that it has a Halloween twist is even better too!
Grab your very own Twist and Bend game from Amazon UK, October 31st and Party Avenue.
Another game that is similar to a classic game is Stack the Bones. If you have played Jenga then you'll know what to do. The goal of the game is to remove a piece from the stack and place it on top. The higher it gets and the more pieces placed on top the more likely it will fall over.
The winner is the player who manages to remove and place the last piece on top without it falling over. What I love about this is that instead of the usual blocks that you remove it's actually bone shapes that make up the pieces. It's a simply change that is such a great idea.
Get stacking from Amazon UK, Amazon US and Beaumonde.
Smashing Pumpkins is a fun, quick game for ages 6 and up. In the game you have to create 3 piles of cards, each round the player places a card onto a pile and each player continues to do so until all three cards have the same matching symbol. If all three cards reveal the same symbol then its a smash! The player who manages to get rid of all of their cards first is the winner.
Each card has spooky and pumpkin themed images like Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and Jack'o Lanterns, which makes this game even more fun. Oh and it's all house in a Pumpkin box!

Ouija was originally created in 1894 and has long been associated with the dead. Using the Planchette you can use the board to speak with the dead and ask questions. If the planchette begins to move by itself then you'll be getting answers whether you like them or not... or so they say.
Believed by many to actually work and many who think its all false, this is one board game you can easily play at home but for this one i'm not including any links.
No one said anything about social distancing from the dead now did they?
