A Chinese Ghost Story

Posted in Session Reports: Other on March 9, 2011 by Carl

No RP this time, so we descended upon Jules armed with board games. After a fantastic game of 1300 Card Pickup (I still think I won) we decided upon a favourite game of Stefan’s, Ghost Stories.

Ghost Stories is a cooperative game where each player is a taoist warrior intent upon defeating the evil Wu-Feng and his never-ending army of ghosts, ghouls and spirit monsters. I’d read good things about the game and I wasn’t disappointed: the game was tense, exciting and fun, with a great theme and interesting choices. We played on medium difficulty, and I think we got quite lucky with the way the cards fell; we beat the game without too much trouble. I can see how it could go the other way though, and the expansion looks like it just adds to the troubles. Highly recommended, and one I’d love to play again with the group. You can read more about it here.

Next Session: Friday 4th March

We’re down a few folks this week, so it’s time to break out the boardgames. The suggestion last time was a Cosmic Encounter at Jules’ place. Who’s in? Anyone prefer to play something else? Can everyone resist the urge to gang up on me?
