An official board game based on the iconic Friday the 13th horror movie franchise is set to be released this year.

Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake from US company The OP offers three to six players fun of the "anxiety-driven, press-your-luck horror" variety.

"Summertime fun is dying out at Camp Crystal Lake, where masked and murderous Jason Voorhees is on the hunt for camp counsellor blood. And your unlucky day is looming," says the game's official description. 

Players will take on the roles of cliché horror movie teen characters like the Jock, the Nerd, the Diva, the Partier, the Nice Guy and the Final Girl.

They'll have to find in-game items - or steal them from their friends - to increase their chances of staying alive, but the odds of making it through will diminish with every turn.

"[Players] must rely on chance and strategy to survive five nights being terrorised by bloodthirsty Jason," says The OP.

"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 [Jason's] attacks."

Friday the 13th: Horror at Camp Crystal Lake is set for release in the coming northern hemisphere's summer.

It's far from the only horror board game coming out this year - more can be found on boardgamegeek.com's list of the 15 most anticipated titles scheduled for release in 2020.
