Ghooost! is a fast, easy-to-learn card game with a Halloween-based theme and lots of twists and turns! Play your cards wisely to get rid of all the ghosts, undead, vampires, zombies and other spooky creatures haunting your mansion. Block your opponents while they're trying to drive spirits out of their home and into your backyard -- but beware as the scariest ghosts will not be driven away so easily...
A game consists of two stages. In the first stage, players draw or play cards to prepare their hand of cards for the second stage. On a turn, a player takes one of three actions: Play one or more matching cards on the Cemetery equal to or higher than the cards played previously, then refill your hand to four cards by drawing from the Crypt (deck). Take all the cards from the Cemetery into your hand; any card can be played on an empty Cemetery. Draw one card from the Crypt and try to play it, taking all the cards from the Cemetery into your hand if the play isn't valid.
Once the Crypt is empty, the second stage begins and players take turns either playing valid cards into the Cemetery or taking all cards from the Cemetery into their hand. If a player plays two or three matching ghosts, he takes another turn immediately; if he plays four cards that match (or plays cards that complete a quartet), those cards and the Cemetery are removed from play, then he takes another turn. If a player's hand is empty, he draws the top card from his mansion, playing it if valid and taking all the Cemetery cards into his hand if not. If a player empties his hand and mansion, he's out and the others keep playing. Play continues until only one player has cards in hand; this player loses the game and everyone else wins.
Ghooost! may be played by 2-6 players, ages 8 and up, with a game time of around 20 minutes. It's a fast-paced game with lots of twists and turns, and is a Mensa Select award-winning game! A fun and Spooky Card Games for the whole Family.
