Written Reviews

"This is a fun, fun game that is very well designed and has some of the cutest art I’ve seen in a while." - Euro Game Girl on BGG

"It never ceases to amaze me how a game that appears so simple on the surface can have so much depth. Ghosts Love Candy hits that sweet spot most gamers crave, an artfully-balanced mix of strategy, ease-of-play, variability and fun." - Scott Bogen, The Board Game Show

"Ghosts Love Candy is a solid title that will work well with both kids and adults. There’s a bit of strategy involved but it’s not really heavy, and the short play time and easy rules mean you can get a game started (and finished) pretty quickly." - Jonathan H. Liu, GeekDad

"Ghosts Love Candy was certainly a hit in my house. The game offers enough strategy to be enticing for adults without overwhelming kids. My 8 and 11 year olds were on about equal footing playing this game and I didn’t feel like I could run away with a win after a few plays when they both got the hang of the bidding mechanic." - Ben Gerber, Troll in the Corner

"This is a well-designed, well-put-together, all-ages family friendly game. And that's not something we review a lot. It's fun, it's enjoyable, it's light." - All Us Geeks

"I like this game. It is fun. It is quick. It makes an excellent filler because it has some strategy and ‘take that’. The art is super. ‘Charming’ was how I first described it. The game is kind of deceptive. At first glance it looks like a kid’s game. But believe me it is not." - Tom Gurganus, Go Forth and Game

 ADD-INS

Wanting to grab more games with your backing? Just add on the following amounts to your pledge and direct message me to notate your account:

DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL ADD-INS

  • Additional copy of Ghosts Love Candy - $23
  • Ghosts Love Candy KIDS Kicker Pack - $5
  • Smash Monster Rampage - $40
  • Smash Monster Rampage Mega Monster Box - $65
  • Mob Town & the City Limits expansion - $35
  • Farmageddon: Livestocked & Loaded -$10
  • Farmageddon: FrankenCrop Kicker Pak - $5

DOMESTIC ADD-INS

  • Farmageddon - $15
  • Jungle Ascent - $30
  • Baldrick's Tomb - $35

(The reason there are some add-ins that are only domestic is those games wouldn't be shipped from within Europe and would be prohibitively expensive due to customs and VAT.)

All overfunds will go to EVERYONE who backs for at least one copy of Ghosts Love Candy.

 This overfund adds Veggies to the draw bag, which can be collected as an alternative way to get points. The more you have of a veggie, the more it's worth! It also adds 9 more KIDs to the game.

 Who ya gonna call? In the Movie Fans overfund, Kids dressed as homages to movies such as Ghost Busters, Evil Dead, and more will join the game!

 Want more candy?! OF COURSE YOU DO! This overfund will add new candy to the draw bag with different effects, such as gaining a bonus for having the most, and even some rocks. ...You don't want rocks in your candy stash.

Risks and challenges

There are three areas where Ghosts Love Candy can face delays: art for its overfunds, production, and shipping between China and our warehouses. Should delays occur, the backers will be kept up-to-date on any adjustments to the delivery timeline, as well as the reason for the delay.

Art for the base game is complete.

We will be fulfilling a previous campaign, Smash Monster Rampage, in July. This will not interfere with Ghosts Love Candy.

Our most recent project, Mob Town, will go into production while Ghosts Love Candy is an active campaign. This will not interfere with Ghosts Love Candy.
