Product Description

Product Description

By Rio Grande Games

Players: 2 to 5
Playing Time: 30 minutes
Ages: 10 and up

One player is the ghost and the others the ghost chasers. The chasers try to capture the ghost and the ghost tries to elude capture in this exciting game. The chasers can cooperate, but only one can win by capturing the ghost. If the ghost eludes capture until the end of the game, he wins! All this happens in an old haunted (by the ghost, of course) mansion. The ghost chasers may only move from room to room in the conventional way: using doors and stairs. The ghost, being insubstantial, can move through the doors and use the stairs, but may also go through walls, floors, and ceilings.

From the Manufacturer

This is a complete deck of cards for El Grande - in English. It is for players who bought the German game before we printed the English version and want to play the game with English cards.

Ghost Chase lists the age range as 8+, but I bought it for my five year old daughter, and she's had a blast with it.

One of the benefits of playing the game with younger kids is that they'll get a lot of educational value out of it. My daughter was working on recognizing numbers, but not having a lot of luck at it through traditional means. After playing Ghost Chase, though, she now recognizes up into the 50s (that's as high as the room numbers in the game go).

The need to manage multiple characters to achieve a goal is also a great mind-stretcher for her when she's playing the ghost hunters. When she's playing the ghost, the need to remember where she's been, and not get herself caught in a dead-end, is great. In fact, she does better at that than I do!

We've found that with the recommended settings in the game, it's difficult for the ghost hunters to catch the ghost (even with me playing the ghost hunters and my daughter playing the ghost). So if your kids are playing the hunters, I'd recommend using all the animal frames and all the characters instead of the amount the rules say. Also give them the ghost trap to help limit the ghost's mobility.

But it's a fun game that we both enjoy playing together, and she loves it! It also satisfied her need for a "scary" game around Halloween since it involves chasing a ghost around a haunted castle.

Good game for older kids (8-9 and older), not so much for smaller kids.

It's fun, and the board and bits are very appealing! The theme, of course, is attractive for kids, we're very happy with this purchase!
