Ghost Blitz is a staple dexterity game in any board game collection. It's one of those brain teasers that sound super simple in theory, but in reality will melt your brain.
In Ghost Blitz, five wooden items sit on the table waiting to be caught: a white ghost, a green bottle, a cute grey mouse, a blue book, and a comfortable red chair.
Each card in the deck shows pictures of two objects, with one or both objects coloured the wrong way. With all players playing at the same time, someone reveals a card, then players grab for the "right" object – but which object is right?
- If one object is coloured correctly – say, a green bottle and a red mouse – then players need to grab that correctly coloured object.
- If both objects are coloured incorrectly – say, a green ghost and a red mouse – then you look for the object and colour not represented among the four details shown. In this case you see green, red, ghost and mouse, so players need to grab the blue book.
The first player to grab the correct object keeps the card, then reveals the next card from the deck.
If a player grabs the wrong object, she must discard one card previously collected. Once the card deck runs out, the game ends and whoever has collected the most cards wins!
