ghostel board

There are some board games where you’re fighting ghosts and trying to defeat them, but how about where you’re playing as the ghost? Ghostel is a new game from Tinkerbot Games now on Kickstarter. Ghostel is a 2-4 player dice placement game for families where players are ghosts trying to scare away hotel guests.

Gameplay is split into rounds, each with a Day phase and a Night phase. During the Day, people enter the hotel and the ghosts hide in the attic and prepare by buying Terror bonuses, Scare tactics, and Spookie favours. At Night, the ghosts go to the rooms and use their dice and cards to scare the people out of the hotel.

If you’re looking for a family-friendly game with a good theme, cute art (including a caricature of my friend), and ghost meeples, then check out the Kickstarter page here.
