What is Ghostel: The Board Game?

Ghostel Board GameGhostel is a board game that involves some cards, dices and ghosts.

You will play as a ghost living in a hotel that just reopened. Having other players in the hotel, you’ll be competing to be the scariest one, making guests leave terrorised.

The game designers promise that the rules for 2 players make the game as fun as if your were playing with more people, which is something very welcomed as board games are usually more fun with more people, but sometimes you just want to play it with your partner or friend.


How to play Ghostel: The Board Game

Ghostel GhostsFirst of all you have to lay the guests cards on the board game. Each guest has a different level of resistance to ghosts, which also indicates how many points you win if you scare him away.

Your turns are actually days and you should roll 3 dices every time a new one starts to determine how many spooky points you have for that night. Then you can place the dices on the cards of guests you want to scare. You can also ask help from other ghost to scare people away, but be careful because the other ghosts can have another agenda in their mind.

Here’s a small video with a brief explanation on how the game mechanics works:


When, Where and How Much Ghostel Cost?

The Kickstarter campaign is at its end on this address. You should rush and back this nice project.

If it’s successfully backed, the game will be sent and available to the general public from February 2017.

The minimum pledge is $1, but if you want a copy of the game, it’s $41.


Playing board games since I was 8, I created a passion for different styles such as Strategy, Cards, Family and Role Playing Games. My current favourite board games are Ticket to Ride, Tokaido and Rummikub.


  1. I love the design of the board. It look really cool and realistic.
    So I hope they can collect the money and I look forward to purchase the game.
    It really looks good and I love board games!


  2. My boys would love this, the only problem would be stopping them behaving like ghosts after the game. Will this game be available in the UK?

      It can be shipped all around the world, so yes, you can have it in the UK.
