Who: Jay and Caroline
When: July 21

Jay had just an hour to play and I was wiped from taking an exam, so we decided to eschew facilitating stuff for others and just play a quick game of Vincent Baker’s two player game Murderous Ghosts!
I started out as the player and Jay was the ghosts trying to kill me. Spoiler alert--ghost won. Then we switched, ghost won again. His sub-basement was a creepy old dungeon type thing. Mine was a terrible modernish laboratory.

It was a fun game for creating awesome creepy locations, creating a plot through the environment, and for creating scary ghosts. Being a player was not as imaginatively engaging by a long shot, but it was still fun. I felt nervous and scared when I didn’t know what the ghost would do next! Eek!

Jay commented that this is a good game to get some MC practice in, and I agree.

The rules were pretty straightforward, though it took me some time to understand each page. Each player has a little book that gives them prompts and options for actions. You also draw cards which tell you your results (actually in a system rather like Apocalypse World).

It was a fun little pick-up game, the whole thing took less than an hour. I’m always looking for quick two-player games, so it was great that I got an opportunity to play. I’d like to read through the rules entirely before delving back in, but delve again I shall!

Thanks for facilitating Jay!

Fun times!

I think we missed out on something by playing outside on a lovely day. Seems like the sort of game that'd be best by candlelight, with the wind howling outside.
