“IT” was an exciting start to September for The OP!
In addition to the theatrical release of IT: Chapter Two, our team was very excited to officially make one of our newest co-op strategy games, IT: Evil Below,available to eager fans of Stephen King and boardgaming.
Based on the events of the first film, this challenging horror game allows players to take on the roles of their favorite Losers’ Club members, outsmart Pennywise, and save the town of Derry from a looming threat.
The members of the Losers’ Club may be all grown up in the newest film adaptation, but gamers have been excited to return to Derry and challenge the sadistic clown as their favorite characters’ childhood counterpart in IT: Evil Below. That’s why celebrating the second film could only mean one thing…GAME NIGHT!
Here’s a quick look at some of the IT-themed fun surrounding the release of IT: Evil Below and IT: Chapter Two and how you can bring home the do-or-die cooperative strategy game today!
Game Night at Alamo Drafthouse Los Angeles
On Thursday, September 5, the Alamo Drafthousein Los Angeles commemorated the first screenings of IT: Chapter Two at their movie theater with a slew of IT-themed activities in the bar. Moviegoers and gamers alike were welcomed into the Video Vortex for demos of IT: Evil Below and the chance to win cool prizes.
Plus, extra surprises such as photo opportunities, DIY crafts (create your own S.S. Georgie? Yes please!), and complementary balloon creations only accentuated the experience and further immerse gamers into the world of The Losers’ Club.

Players Wanted: IT Game Night at Scum and Villainy Cantina
Following the film’s opening weekend, Scum and Villainy Cantinatapped into the ITcraze with their own version of a game night in Derry. On Monday, September 8, the friendly neighborhood geek bar gave their weekly game night a spooky ITtheme. Visitors “floated” their way into the bar for a game of IT: Evil Below, giveaways, a D&D one-shot, and themed drinks.
By this time, many of the gamers within the bar had already seen the second film, and they discussed their thoughts and comparisons over the board of IT: Evil Below while collaborating on methods to defeat the tabletop version of Pennywise. It was also great to witness happy raffle winners win games like MONOPOLY: ITand CLUE: ITto add to their collection.
Overall, it was a stellar game night and the perfect conclusion to IT Chapter Two’s opening weekend.
