By Alan Gerding 4 created Follow Necroboomicon: the first expansion for Two Rooms and a Boom!

Necroboomicon is the first expansion to Two Rooms and a Boom, the party game that is always a blast. Think of it as Two Rooms and a Boom on HARD MODE!

We wanted to make our first expansion special so we focused on four things that we thought would make the game incredibly fun for old fans and new fans alike:

  • Character cards inspired by the master of horror, H.P. Lovecraft (we're talking the Cthulhu Mythos, here).
  • Enhanced tension and play for seasoned Boomers (peeps that enjoy playing Two Rooms).
  • Introduces and encourages color sharing when playing with fewer than 11 players.
  • Specifically designed to make Two Rooms just as fun with few players. Only have 6 players? NO PROBLEM!

Two Rooms and a Boom back in stock!

That's right! After the longest wait ever, Two Rooms and a Boom is back in stock on Amazon! This is the beautiful, new and improved second edition. We've got slight upgrades to the quality of the plastic cards, a cardstock upgrade to the Leader Cards and then a host of minor fixes and improvements. It's still got all the great roles and characters from the first/kickstarter edition, so be sure to snag yours today!

When Will Two Rooms Be Available?

Hey gang,

Quick check-in here. Many of you have been asking when Two Rooms will be available again (or in some cases "if" it will), I can answer that a little bit better now! Games are scheduled to arrive in the US Amazon warehouse today and if that happens then there should be a few days of receiving before we go live on the store. International customers will have to wait a week or so as those games shipped later. 

We'll be sure to post on here again when the games are live and for sale, as well as send out a newsletter - so if you haven't already, go subscribe! 

Have fun!


Pre-Orders Have Shipped. What's next?

Hey Knights,

A couple quick notes from the manufacturing side of things this week!


If you live in the U.S. and you pre-ordered a copy of Two Rooms and a Boom (2nd Edition), then there's about a 90% chance that your order has shipped (as I'm looking at the Seller Central back-end that Amazon provides, there's only about a dozen or so left that are in the "planning" stages, meaning that Amazon is slapping labels and boxes on the games before shipping them out). You should receive an e-mail from Amazon when your game ships. Some of you have even gotten yours already! Wee!

International Orders, Ideaspatcher tells me their games usually ship out on Wednesday, so tomorrow I'll be contacting them to see where we're at.

When Will Games Be Available Again?

That's a tough question. Because of quality control delays, we had Panda air-ship pre-orders to our warehouses so that you guys wouldn't be stuck holding the bag on a super late game. However, the bulk of our print-run is still being assembled in China. That means that if everything goes well, it should hit the boat in about a week or so, meaning that games will get here sometime in late October or possibly early November just in time for the holiday season.

However, we've decided to open up a second round of pre-orders for those of you who missed out on the first batch. These pre-orders will ship when the bulk of the games arrive at our warehouses (Amazon and Ideaspatcher), before the games go live on Amazon for sale. Look forward to that happening sometime next week!

As always, if you have any problems, questions, or concerns, feel free to e-mail us at

Two Rooms 2nd Edition Pre-Order Update

Hey guys,

Pre-orders for the second edition of Two Rooms and a Boom have (finally) arrived at our Amazon fulfillment warehouse for US orders as well as Ideaspatcher, our international fulfillment center. This is great news, as, if you hadn't noticed, we're running a couple weeks late on our ETA of August. The good news is, that we should begin shipping games out this week. We really appreciate your patience.

Amazon is currently in the "receiving" phase, meaning they're scanning a buncha barcodes and getting our games into their system so we can ship them out to you. Ideaspatcher is ready to roll and we're sending them a spreadsheet of international orders so that they can start shipping those out as well.

We really apologize for the delays here and for the lack of communication about those delays. If you didn't know, there was a hold-up during the quality control step, right before the games were air shipped to our warehouses, and while it seemed like we'd get the games in late August at the time, that quickly slid into September. We're going to be better at communication in the future.

Also, we've currently turned off pre-orders while we ship out to everyone who pre-ordered. Panda is currently getting together a timeline for when the rest of our games will arrive by boat and when we have that information in hand, we'll start a second round of pre-orders with an updated shipping timeline.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us at and we'll be sure to get back to you!
