MIXTAPE MASSACRE: ESCAPE FROM TALL OAKS Launches Kickstarter For Sequel to Successful Slasher Boardgame
It’s 2019 and we are in the best era for horror fans. One thing that we can be eternally grateful is the resurgence of horror themed board games. While we’ve seen a ton of licensed product head our way, the real winners are the creators of original IP and Mixtape Massacre is one of the best of the best. Using traditional slasher tropes and mixing it with the idea of popular music from the era, it’s proven to be one of the best and most fun of all of the relatively new horror titles. Even luckier for us, Mixtape Massacre has officially announced a sequel and we can be part of the genesis. Find the info below and let’s help bring this project to life!

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 slasher archetypes in an every-monster-for-themselves scenario, the sequel now puts you in the shoes of Tall Oaks surviving 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 in an attempt to get 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!
Survivors 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, but watch out, as searching can also bring you face to face with some of Tall Oaks more famous slashers.
Fan favorite Killer Scenes and Bonus Tracks are back, along with new 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.
