Kickstarter Tabletop Alert: Spooky Spelling in 'Ghost Writer'

March 16th - via:
Ghost Writer is a word party game for 4 to 8 players, ages 13 and up, and takes about 15 minutes to play. It’s currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, with a pledge level of $25 for a copy of the game. The theme is based on a seance, with the “ghost” writing clues down one letter at a time, but the words and questions do not have any specific ties to the occult, so it’s up to you how much you want to play up the “talking to the dead” aspect if you’re playing with younger kids. Ghost Writer was designed by Mary Flanagan and Max Seidman and published by Resonym, with artwork by Spring Yu. (Read More)

You’ll have to do your best to interpret messages from the other side if you want to prove your worth. (Read More)
