Can you play the haunted game and banish the ghost forever?

Terrible things happened to those who played this haunted board game when it was released in the 1950s. But the only way to solve the mystery is to play the game yourself.

Fantastic game. Absolutely stunning, better than any game like this I’ve played before. I’d say it was better than the Balthazar Stone but not by much.

quality material😨creepy

This was the second of these games we've played, and we all rated it as being significantly better than The Balthazar Stone.

The build quality is excellent - if being nitpicky the chain around the box falls off with light handling and certainly won't contain that ghost!

The puzzles all seemed well-constructed, and the story was well-woven throughout the puzzle.  It did feel like we were trying to solve the a mystery, not just work out the answer.

I've rated it as 'creepy' as there are ominous written messages from the ghost within the puzzle materials, which some may find creepy.  There are no sudden scares or similar.
