The board game renaissance has been a blessing for everyone, especially horror fans. Leading the charge of the new surge of tabletop fun is Mixtape Massacre, an already genre favorite in which players take on roles of slashers and try to murder people. Music is a heavy component, hence the name, and with a follow-up expansion (The Black Masque), Mixtape Massacre is a passion project made from hardcore fans.


Now, the fine folks behind the cult classic have announced a brand new SEQUEL to the original hack and slash game. In the new follow-up, players will take the role of the citizen of Tall Oaks, attempting to survive by cooperating with each other, searching for items, and looking to survive the night. Escape from Tall Oaks will be launching their own Kickstarter soon, find the full press release below and keep your eyes out for the new game!


Mixtape Massacre: Escape From Tall Oaks Press Release

New Game. Same Damned Town. Mixtape Massacre is Back!

Mixtape Massacre: Escape From Tall Oaks (EFTO) is the upcoming sequel to the cult favorite board game, Mixtape Massacre, originally Kickstarted in 2015. Unlike the original where you play as slashers in an every-monster-for-themselves scenario, the sequel now puts you in the shoes of Tall Oaks residents.

EFTO is a meta-cooperative game where 2-6 players attempt to escape the maddening streets of Tall Oaks by fighting off slashers, rescuing residents, and collecting essential items all in hopes of getting the hell outta town…or die trying. Though working together at times to safeguard the town, in the end only one survivor can escape.

Players choose from 1 of 6 survivors, each with their own skill sets. Explore new locations in Tall Oaks with weapons in tow while attempting your escape - but watch your back as the town’s most infamous villains will be waiting in the shadows, ready to butcher you and your pals.

Players will go through challenges rescuing victims and friends from the insanity happening across town. Along the way, search locations for supplies and weapons to assist you in making your escape. Some of these supplies will also come in handy for completing tasks to safeguard the town.

Fan favorite Killer Scenes and Bonus Tracks are back, along with supply cards and other new mechanics. Even better, if you’re an owner of the original Mixtape Massacre, combine both games by linking up the boards, increasing your town map, and turning your next game night into a Slashers vs. Survivors Party!

Not to stray too far from the original, we’ve kept the game retro, fun, full of jokes and horror tropes, and most importantly - approachable for gamers and non-gamers alike.

Welcome back to Tall Oaks. Now get out while you can!
