Ghostel comes to Kickstarter!
Today, Geek Pride’s very own Bevan Clatworthy (that’s me!) is proud to announce the launch of the Kickstarter for the board game Ghostel.
Ghostel is a dice rolling worker placement game for 2-4 players that plays in roughly 45-60 minutes. You play as ghosts scaring visitors away from a hotel that used to be YOUR haunted house! Are you the scariest ghost of the night?
The game of Ghostel is made of rounds, and each round is split into a Day phase and a Night phase. During the Day, new people will enter the hotel whilst those who already spent the Night and survived will calm down from their night-time visitations. Meanwhile, the ghosts are hiding in the attic, preparing for the next Night by buying Terror bonuses, Scare tactics to improve their frightfulness and Spookie favours to give that extra little edge.
During the Night, the ghosts walk the rooms, using all their cards and dice to frighten the humans away and show off for Spookie himself. At the start of the Night phase, each player rolls their Terror dice to determine how scary they are for that Night. Players can move one room per round, leaving behind a Terror die as they move. If the total on all dice in a room exceeds the courage score of the human in residence of that room, they’re scared out of the house! Players then score based on who placed the highest scoring dice; however, scoring is graduated so even a single pip die will still score the canny player some victory points.
One of our stretch goals is the awesome 3D ghost meeple pictured below:
