Handy Haversack: Spooky Holiday Edition

Handy Haversack: Spooky Holiday Edition

Happy Halloween everyone! The Holidays can mean something different for each of us, but for me they mean one thing: cheap Tabletop Gaming Supplies! I’m going to highlight some scary deals you can pick up this year, and ask what your favorite halloween props are for Pathfinder Society!

Best halloween scenario!

Pumpkins and Gourds!
For obvious reasons, our favorite gourds all go on sale the day after halloween. They can make great props, and if you bring some markers your players can have a fun time “carving” their own pumpkins in character, especially in a halloween themed scenario like Reaping What We Sow. They also work great as atmospheric tools for creating that “harvest festival” feel. They can even make a fun interactive puzzle…or thematically cool treasure chest you can fill with item cards!

Skulls and Shackles!
The Dollar Store and your friendly local craft store will have bones, skulls and everything skeleton on sale starting tomorrow. Most of them are too big for tabletop use, unless you need a dead god or a premade “Skull Island”. But if you keep your eyes open, you can find bags of smaller skeletons, zombies, mummys or just skulls to help your next undead encounter. Oh and did I mention chains? Both also make great puzzle-props.

Prewrapped candy works best

Candy! Candy! And more Candy!
Candy goes on sale tomorrow! Aside from just having a bowl of candy for your friends, the right sized candy can work great for minis, especially in scenarios like Multi-Table where there are too many diverse types of enemies and tiers to properly prepare a reasonable sized case of miniatures. Starbursts are my favorite for this, and around halloween they even have wrappers with spooky creatures on them, like bats and skeletons! Protip: Make the caster yellow. No one attacks the yellow starburst.
