"Even if it didn't have some of the best art I've seen in a while (it does!), 7 Ghosts would keep me coming back for more. It combines dice rolls, clever card play, and secret information into a game that is fun and challenging for both my friends and family." - Lance Myxter -Undead Viking

 Ghosts are on the loose! and zombies, and renegade pumpkins. Haunted houses hold clues of what is to come. You'll find black cats, frightened skeletons, owls, and even a swampman. Watch out for the grim reaper, he takes whatever he wants. Tame the tentacled monster lurking under your bed. Various strategies and tactics await the astute player, with tricks and twists at every turn. We hope you have as much fun playing "7 Ghosts" as we did making it. Happy haunting!

GAME SUMMARY-    It begins simply. Grab a ghost here, snag a zombie there. Target cards strategically to help your endgame.  Tension builds as the ghost count rises. Have you used your resources wisely?  How do you find and capture the seventh ghost before your opponent?

About 7 Ghosts Creator -

Hi, I'm Keith.  I've enjoyed games of all kinds since I was a kid, and tried my hand at designing a few along the way. A couple years ago I became enamored with "modern" types of games and quickly introduced them to my wife.  We greatly enjoy games such as "Eldritch Horror", "Ancient Terrible Things", and "Tiny Epic Galaxies" to name a few.  I had an idea to create a game that sort of "bridges the gap" between very simple games and "epic" games that could bring more casual players to the modern game table.  I wanted it to have unique and flowing mechanics, be easily playable, and yet offer tactics and strategies for the more serious player.

I worked hard at designing such a game, and tested various approaches.  After lots of brainstorming and playtesting I came up with "7 Ghosts".  My friends and their children have enjoyed playing so much that I had to call my long time friend and graphic designer, John, in Memphis to tell him all about it.  He listened attentively, and we were off to the races.  So after lots of planning and art revisions, playtesting, tweaking, and playtesting some more, we are finally ready to bring it to the public. However, we need your help to make it a reality.  I invite you to check out our page and get a feel for the game.  We would greatly appreciate your support!    My email address is : keith41sm@gmail.com    You can send us a message via our facebook page: 7 Ghosts card and dice game

7 Ghost Artist -

I'm John Childress, a photographer and graphic designer from Memphis, TN home of the Blues and birthplace of Rock n' Roll. This project was a lot of FUN to design. I am really proud of the art. It will make the game as visually pleasing as it is FUN to play. BIG THANKS! to Keith for asking me to help and Thanks in advance to all our supporters.
