July 8, 2020 - Arcane Wonders (Texas, USA) in partnership with tinyBuild (Washington, USA), Evolution (California, USA) and Genuine Entertainment (California, USA) are excited to announce the upcoming tabletop game Hello Neighbor: The Secret Neighbor Party Game designed by Ariel Rubin and Juliana Patel.

Building off the wildly successful Hello Neighbor and Secret Neighbor video games this social deduction game brings the world of Hello Neighbor to the real world. Plucking from classics like Werewolf and The Resistance, this new game requires no narrator and no eliminations, ensuring everyone at the table remains engaged!

5-10 players take on the roles of either one of the neighborhood kids, the treacherous neighbor or even a secret neighbor. As one of the kids you will need to use your items wisely if you are to locate the keys and unlock the door to win, but beware as not only are the neighbors at the table trying to trick you, but one of your fellow kids is actually a SECRET NEIGHBOR! 

Hello Neighbor: The Secret Neighbor Party Game will be available everywhere October 2020 with a limited number of copies available during GenCon Virtual.

About Hello Neighbor: The Secret Neighbor Party Game

 

Your creepy Neighbor has something locked up in their basement, and it’s up to you and your friends to reveal their plot. You’ll need to use Objects you find around the Neighbor’s house to locate three different Keys, but there is one problem: some of your friends are secretly villainous Neighbors in disguise! Trade and cooperate as one of the Kids or steal and lie your way to victory as one of the Neighbors in this thrilling social-mystery card game where you’re never quite sure who’s on your side.
