Halloweeja: Ghost Light Edition

Love Halloween? Halloween parties? Then this is the game for you!

The same spooktacular game made more affordable through the magic of dry erase marker! When you reveal a letter, you literally reveal a letter.

This is Halloweeja: the Halloween party, board game where you talk to the living, and bring your party back from the dead! Horror fans, haunters, and Halloween enthusiasts will enjoy Halloweeja year round, but anyone who observes All Hallows Eve will find this game frightfully delightful.

Take turns asking each other wacky, Halloween themed questions from the Book Of Hijinks. There are no right or wrong answers. Match players to their replies. Each YES lets you move that much closer to a letter you need. If the Halloweeja Board reveals your PASSWORD first you win.

But beware: Creature Cards can be either a trick or treat, and help or hinder anyone in the game. (There are 53 individual cards. Not all appear in every session.) And that letter you revealed may be the exact thing someone else needs to win too.

The original is also available on The Game Crafter. Here is a link, so you can compare the two. See the original: Halloweeja

What's really different? In this "Ghost Light" version the instructions are available as a free download, not as a printed copy in the box. The PASSWORDs must be cut out before you can play, but because of the new format 13 new PASSWORDs, not included in the original release, are now yours. No notepaper or pencils are shipped - but chances are you own some already. The letter tiles are no longer needed because the dry erase capabilities of the board now help you track which letters the Halloweeja Board has revealed. Game includes a neat dry erase marker! The Pumpkin Tokens are gone, but those coins you didn't give to UNICEF make the perfect trackers for how many "Yes"es and "No"s are earned.

This "Ghost Light" version is played exactly the same as the original, with the only difference being how revealed letters are displayed. The instructions will explain this minor change. Also, you are smart, and will find the original video tutorials still useful to learn how to play Halloweeja. See them here on YouTube: How To Play Halloweeja - YouTube

Watch the entire playlist or pick and choose what you wish to know. Watching the entire playlist at least once is recommended by 8.6 out of 10 rotting corpses.
