13 Ghosts

Dominance in the ghost mansion


Ghosts fight for control of the haunted house and want to name the ghost in the opponent’s crypt. 2x13 cards are numbered from 1 to 13; in a game of two and three players, you use one set, in a game of four players - in two teams - you use both sets.

In a game of two and three, you are dealt two cards, the rest is face-down draw pile. You set down one card face-down as your crypt and, as the active player, you have two options: 1. You play your card from your hand openly and use its effect. A question about the opponent’s crypt must be answered truthfully by the opponent. 2. You play the card face-down for an attack. In both cases you then draw a card from the pile. If the draw pile is empty, you always make an attack. For an attack you name a card between 1 and 13; if it is the number of the opposing crypt, you win the round.  Whoever wins three rounds first, wins the game.

In a game with three, both opponents react to questions on a crypt or an attack, and each success scores a point and you win the game with six points.

In a game of four players, the team shares one set - one player draws four cards and selects two for a crypt for himself and his mate, the other player selects one hand card for himself and his mate from the remaining two cards. Both players of a team must react to questions and attacks for their own crypt; the round goes to the team that wins two attacks; if your team wins three rounds, you win the game

Micro game and macro fun! Number guessing with a topic, with “is the crypt number even?” or “is the crypt number 8 or higher?” - cute, witty, fast and ideal for traveling.
