Spooky Season

Announcing the 2022 Week of Horror Event


Another horde of horrors is on its way…

For the past couple years, investigators all over the world have enjoyed a celebration of the Arkham Horror Files game line in October. This year, the terrifying trend continues with the 2022 Week of Horror event! From October 24th through October 31st, we’ll be posting something new and Arkham-themed to our website and/or socials every day.

So, without further ado, let’s take a quick peek at what’s coming for the Week of Horror!

Costume Contest

Starting on October 24th, we will start accepting submissions for the 2022 Week of Horror Costume Contest! For this contest, fans* of the Arkham Horror Files game line can submit pictures of themselves in their best Arkham duds for a chance to win some free games! Will you be an investigator? A cultist? Or perhaps even an eldritch monstrosity? We can’t wait to find out!

We’ll have one winner in each of the following three categories: individual, group, and pet. Judging will be based on creativity, originality, effort, and authenticity to the Arkham setting, with equal weight for each of those four criteria.

Submissions for the Costume Contest end at 11:59 PM CDT on October 31st. You can read the official rules here.

*Please note that this contest is for U.S. residents only.

The Scarlet Keys Campaign Expansion Livestream

Jumping ahead to Wednesday, October 26th, we will be hosting a special FFG Live stream on our YouTube channel to show off some of the contents of the upcoming The Scarlet Keys Campaign Expansion. Tune in at 1:00 PM CDT to watch MJ Newman, Duke Harrist, and Josh Massey take on a scenario from the expansion. Will they manage to beat the odds and pull off a win?

Daily Activities

In addition to the exciting things listed above, each other day of the Week of Horror will feature fun little Arkham-themed activities. Let’s take a quick look at each of them one-by-one:

On Tuesday, October 25th, we’ll have our Trivia Tuesday trivia contest. This one will feature a trivia question about one of our Arkham Horror Files game lines—but which one?

On Thursday, October 27th, see if you can find your way out of an Arkham-themed maze puzzle. Be careful not to get lost!

On Friday, October 28th, find out what your Arkham Horror investigator name would be with this simple quiz!

On Saturday, October 29th,  test your perception with a monster of a word search. You think you know the Great Old Ones well? Try finding their names in a sea of letters!

On Sunday, October 30th, follow up on the previous day’s activity with an Arkham Horror-themed crossword puzzle. Test your knowledge and see if you can get each answer right!

Finally, on Monday, October 31st, we’ll upload the long-awaited “Play-and-Share” promo version of the Wendy Adams parallel investigator card! This will complete the set of promos for Arkham LCG’s five core set investigators at last.

Arkham Nights

Of course, no October would be complete without Arkham Nights! No matter where you are in the world, you can participate in the festivities at your local game store. Simply ask your store if they are participating—or, if you’re a game store owner yourself, simply get in touch with your Asmodee sales representative to learn how you can get involved in Arkham Nights.

A Week to Remember

As we head into this spooky season, we’d like to take a moment to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts. The Arkham Horror Files has some of the most passionate and enthusiastic fans in tabletop gaming, and we are unfathomably grateful for the love and support you all have shown over the years. We have lots more thrills and chills in store for the future, which means one thing is certain: whether you are a longtime community member or just got into the games this year, right now is a fantastic time to be an Arkham fan.
