Welcome to Spookre, the Hauntingly Fun Trick-Taker by David Sheppard. Ghost hunting has become a major industry, and you stand to make a lot of tourism money on your run-down property if you only had some famous ghosts lurking about. Players try to convince ghosts in the graveyard to haunt their homes. The player with the most ghosts wins.

 The game is played over a number of rounds in which players will send ghosts from their hands to try to win the target ghost from the graveyard into their score pile. To win a trick, simply play the highest strength card under the target ghost’s strength. In the case of everyone being over, the highest strength card overall wins.

 

Abilities and even the Grim Reaper change things up. By matching auras with the target ghost, the ghost you sent must trigger their ability.  These range from simply spying on another player's hand to even forcing a player to play a different ghost. In the Deck are also two Grim Reapers which will typically win a Ghost outright.

 At the end of the final round, the player with the most Ghosts in their Mansion wins.

 

The content of each copy of Spookre will expand and improve as we reach stretch goals.  So help spread the word so I can get you the best version of this game I can.

David Sheppard is a man of many talents.  He's the designer, primary artist, and publisher of Spookre.  He's been doing game design for many years.  He's honed his skill in game design contests.  He's ready and excited to bring Spookre to you on this Kickstarter.

Also responsible for artwork is the incomparable Alisha Volksman.  She's helped out on blending my artwork with an awe-inspiring background for the cover/card backs as well as the logo itself.  

David Sheppard would also like to thank the various gamers who have helped craft Spookre into the finely honed machine that it is.  His local gaming community, The Game Crafter community chat, Protospiel Midwest Community, All Us Geeks, Indie Conquest, and The Indie Game Report.

Risks and challenges

We're a first time publisher so unexpected things could pop up however we've gotten our quotes, checked shipping costs, made alliances, and done all in our power to make sure you get exactly the game you pay for.

Whatz Games will be manufacturing the game itself. The Reaper Edition boxes will be crafted by Munchkin Metropolis on Etsy. Finally, fulfillment will be handled by us, personally.
