is the newest game from veteran designer Richard Garfield. Similar to his recent Kings of Tokyo, Ghooost is a fairly compact, self contained game aimed squarely at a younger audience. 2-6 players, ages 8+, 20 minutes play time.

Ghooost! boasts it's a "fast, easy-to-learn card game with a Halloween-based theme and lots of twists and turns!" I'll go with fast and Halloween themed, but the rules are a bit cumbersome for those under the age of 10 or so.

With a whimsical undead theme, it's simple components of cards, a few "Boo" tokens and the game box as the game board, it's certainly attractive to kids. As soon as it arrived both of my daughters were fascinated with it. It sat on my kitchen counter for a full day before we were able to play it, and for the first time I was surprised (and happy) to learn that my eldest had popped it open and read the rules on her own.

The undead theme is something I enjoy in general, and truthfully both of my kids have been around cartoonish or plastic zombies for so long they've come to enjoy the genre as well. The theme is this - each player owns a haunted mansion, and they are doing their best to kick the resident ghosts, zombies, vampires and other undead out in to the yard, or better yet, into another player's mansion.

Boiled down to mechanics, Ghooost is a hand management card game, in which you'll get 4 cards in your hand, a number of cards in your `mansion' which is a pile of cards in front of you, and a general draw pile. The object is to be the first to rid yourself of all your cards, both your hand and your Mansion. Cards range in numbers from 1-14, with a wild card and a "kitty" which has no face value.

I watched a review of this game on Youtube from The Dice Tower. They do great reviews on board games. They gave it a nice review. My daughter and I played it with her friend the first day I received it. We had a blast. Easy to learn. It's kind of like UNO with a new flavor and twist. The art work on the cards are fantastic. It's a great family night game to play.

This is a really good card game, something quite unique. My daughter who just turned 8 really enjoys playing this. There are quite a lot of rules to get to grips with initially, with the before and after midnight changes in the rules making it more complex and some of the rules are not so very clear, but my reason for giving this only 4 and not 5 stars is because, with only 2 players, it is extremely difficult to end the game, as you keep on picking up the same cards over and over. This is very frustrating for a child - there needs to be some way to end the game if the cards won't play out and often they do not with just 2.

This is a very easy sometimes a little confusing game. We remind each other don't forget to draw, You can't play that. Still very fun. 9 yr to 77 yr olds like it.

The artwork for this game is great. And the concept is alright. But as much as I wanted to like the game, the rules are cumbersome and at times lacking and the second half of the game is far too random.

Without going into too many details about the rules, the gameplay is kind of like a cross between Uno and Skip-Bo, getting rid of your hand and the stack of cards in front of you to win. The problem is, no matter how great your strategy is in the beginning of the game, the second half game is literally the luck of the draw as you play the top card off your stack. It's pretty anti-climactic to build a great hand "before midnight" and then "after midnight" simply be resigned to playing one random card after another in hopes that your cards just happen to be playable.

My seven year old daughter likes the artwork and enjoys playing it because she doesn't notice the absence of strategy. My wife has disliked the game since we got it. I fall in the middle and wanted to like it, but we still have to refer back to the rules at least once during every game because it's not simple or intuitive game to play.

I first played this game during a recent vacation. My cousin brought it along and we played with a few younger children (around 5-8 years old). Everyone had a lot of fun. The cards are well made and the graphics are interesting. The game-play is reminiscent of UNO with some twists. It takes a few run-throughs to get the rules down, but they are pretty simple. We actually played with slightly modified rules, which sped the game up (for the sake of the young ones) and it was still a lot of fun.

I then purchased this and have played it with friends and family. Although we still had fun I think this game is best enjoyed with younger crowd. Overall it is a great, quick game that anyone can enjoy.

This was one of those games I saw in my local retailer and just wasn't sure about, but my wife would bring it up on occasion and she eventually convinced me to order it with a few extra AMEX points I had when I was ordering another item. I don't regret it for a second.

The game is exceptionally fun and really easy to learn, takes no more than a read through and one try to play proficiently. My five year old son knows how the game works but has not gotten strategy down yet, but my eight year old is all over it. Games are generally very quick and involve a good bit of laughter and fun. If you enjoy a good basic card game, don't hesitate to give this one a shot. I doubt you will be disappointed.
