Hugo and his expanding guest list

“Can we play ghost party again?  With Mummy?”

Well, Mummy was willing to give it a go, so off we went with three players this time.  Miss B thoroughly enjoyed dividing up the people and explaining the game to Mummy (missing out only the rules!) and soon we were playing.  As is inevitable, Hugo got to move a lot more between our turns and Miss B was getting really excited as people got caught and sent downstairs.  This one is definitely cemented as a favourite, but I think it’ll be a little while before we introduce the proper scoring.  More positives: Miss B wasn’t losing track of which colour her pieces were this time, and the whole moving clockwise thing was pretty well bedded in.

The verdict from Miss B (aged 4¼): “Good.  I liked that we all played together and I won.”  Yeah, don’t rub it in, kid, you just had some lucky rolls.  It seems that the social aspect is pretty important though, with all of us playing being a major selling point.

The game: Ghost Party (Ravensberger), 2 to 8 players, age 8+.
