Today is Friday the 13th, a date now indelibly linked with Jason Voorhees since the very first Friday the 13th movie hit the silver screen in 1980. Since then, there have been 9 sequels, a spinoff with Freddy vs Jason, a remake, and a videogame. Now The Op (formerly Usaopoly) is poised to introduce the first licensed Friday the 13th board game.
What Is Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake?
Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake is a survival-style horror board game for 3-6 players. It’s recommended for ages 17+, due to the adult content (after all, the Friday the 13th movies are all R-rated!). Playtime is an estimated 60 minutes. It’s looking to arrive in stores this summer.
