#320 – Ghost Hunters, the Card Game

with 10 comments

The card game, originally dubbed Ghost Hunters, is still a work-in-progress as it needs a little more playtesting (ahem) before I decide if it succeeds more than it fails. I’d call it a mix of the Star Wars CCG, the Lord of the Rings CCG, and Munchkin. D seemed to like it, but one-on-one proved to be no challenge for capturing ghosts, especially since once she got one under her belt the two that followed were like stealing candy for a baby ghost. So yeah, I have a few more ideas that I want to toy with, but I’m liking what I’ve got here and who knows, if I can get it further along I might just try and find someone to publish it…

Also, this isn’t the first game I’ve created on my own. Simply said, I have a lot of free time and little money. This is how I entertain myself…well, one of the ways. There’s also writing, drawing, and music-making. Okay, enough out of me. I need coffee.

Today’s question: What’s your favorite game (boardgame or otherwise) from your childhood?

Mine would be Mastermind. Bitsy and I used to play it all the time, despite me never being terribly great at it.

All at once the ghosts come back
Reeling in you now
What if they came down crushing
Remember when I used to play for
All of the loneliness that nobody
Notices now
