So then I was thinking about spooky cards. You don’t always necessarily get “seasonal” cards, due somewhat to games looking to have a “timelessness” but you still get spookiness other ways. In digital games, it’s easy to have special spooky Halloween events, like Hearthstone’s Headless Horseman mode, but you also sometimes will get “normal” spookiness in individual expansions, like the recent Witchwood.

Similarly, Magic has it’s gothic horror-inspired Innistrad, which features some of my favorite spooky cards.

And more “cartoony” games like Yu-gi-oh get in on it too, with creepy cards like “Destiny Board” which brings an ominous message of DEATHFINAL.
