AVGhost Paranormal Investigation Board Game (Canceled)
Co-operative board game. Play in the dark, with miniature´s flashlights only. Listen to EVP´s. Watch the final videos.
Turn off the lights, switch on your investigator flashlight and discover the truth of the case. AV Ghost is a paranormal investigation co-operative tabletop game, for 2 to 4 players, in which we must move discovering evidences , listening to EVP´s (Electronic Voice Phenomena) AND WATCHING VIDEOS. To listen to the EVP´s and watch the videos you must connect your smartphone or tablet to internet, and have a QR code reader app. During the game, you must find 5 evidences, listen to 3 EVPs and if you survive, watch the video that shows the resolution of the case. You must do it with the lights off and only use your investigator LED flashlight to lit the room. Game includes a soundtrack CD.
NOTE: It is important not to play too many hours in a row because you will be in the dark. This game, although had been raised with a slightly comic aesthetic, has induced distress on some people during the play testing. Some EVP´s although are fictional have managed to impress some players because cases arise crimes, murders and others unpleasant situations. The EVPs are provided with sound effects that can scare. Do not play the game if you are easily susceptible. Game recommended from 14 years of age.
In AVGhost you will face a case which must be solve to win the game. Each case has 4 different ends marked by colour code. Once you choose the end that you want to investigate, you should start to defend from the ghosts that inhabit the places you visit. Your team must fight to keep their lights on, because if all players batteries run out, you lose the game. Swap the batteries with your team companions or find new ones!
The ghosts will emerge on the board thanks to the Ghost’s Die. Each ghost type has its own rules of movement and attacks. The Ghost’s Die will determine the number of ghosts that will emerge. You can choose the difficulty level of the game in relation to the number of players.
The game rules have been amended with several play testing and soon we will put a link in which you will be able to read them in full.
In AVGhost we will have to move between hordes of ghosts to be able to discover the truth of the case. To do this, we will find evidences, listen EVP´s and watch the video.
- To listen to EVP´s, we need to have the recorder and cassette tape in our inventory.
- To watch the video, the camera and 8 mm tape.
- We can only see the video when we have collected 5 evidences and heard 3 EVP´s.
- We will fight the ghosts with our flashlight as a primary weapon, and with various interchangeable objects.
- The ghosts will move towards the nearest light, with his own move from class and if the Ghost Die indicates it, with their own event cards. You must stay together if you want to win. Or maybe one of you dares to be a decoy?
When we have collected 5 evidences and heard 3 EVP´s with our smartphone, we are ready to watch the end video of the case, if we have the camera and 8mm tape in our inventory.
Take the QR card for EVP´s and video, and use your smartphone QR code reader app for AudioVideoGhost.
LIGHT IS LIFE:
As we move forward, our battery ran down. When our battery indicator reaches "empty", we must turn off our flashlight. Then we can exchange batteries with our companions or find new ones. We must fight to keep the lights on, or maybe turn off some of them to escape, but beware, if everyone turned off the lights at once, we will lose the game.
We are creating AVGhost for your fun and enjoyment, and our goal is that you can share great moments with your family and friends. For this reason, we are development a case editor that will be installed in our web page, where you will be able to create your own cases, recording your EVP´s and videos for share with the rest of players. Take the role of an investigator or maybe a ghost for scare all people and shown that you are a great AVGhost case maker!
Game will be produced in English, Spanish, German, French and Italian, for the printed components like rules, cards, character sheets and more. EVP´s will be in English with each language subtitles. If we reach the multi-language stretch goal (see on the list below), EVP´s will be recorded on each language by voice actors.

SHOOTING THE ENDS:
We are ready to shoot the end videos of cases. If the game becomes real, we will start the production of these videos. Each of those will be shoot in HD, with a proffesional team in a set located in Madrid, Spain. Real actors will perform the final of cases, and you will watch a little short film for each case end if you win the game. This aspect of AVGhost and the posibility to listen EVP´s, play in the dark, and listening the OST will provide it a very interactive, environmental and funny experience to share with your family and friends. Help us to make it real!!
We are classic FX and movie enthusiasts. AVGhost end videos will be shooted with special effects. For the pre production of these videos, we have already started with the realization of some props that appear in them, and although we can not show too much for not reveal any end game, here you can see two of the sculptures (work in progress), which will be used in some videos.
Why the high funding goal?
The funding goal for our project is very high. That is for different reasons. AVGhost is not a classic board game. To play it and perform a very exciting experience, we have to shoot all video ends, with make-up especial effects and props, with real actors, and croma key techniques. All videos must be edited. OST will be composed specially for the game, because we think that the music is one of the most important components for a full play experience. The recording of all EVP´s with FX sounds and differents voice actors are a very hard work. Especial effects takes a lot of hours of sculpt, molds, and make-up and props have to be finished. Mold miniatures are more complicated than the normal ones, because the investigator figures have real lights. Assembling LED system into miniatures increases the funding goal too.
All of this work is near to make a movie, and if the game is funded, we have a very hard and strong work to do. We´ll be happy to do it!
Help Vincent, Helen, Africa and Robert to start their paranormal investigations!!
The game is in a 60% developing stage. We need your help to complete it so you can enjoy long nights of paranormal investigation with your flashlights. The miniatures that are shown on the project and video have been sculpted by ourselves and of course they are not professional quality. If the project is a success, the game will feature top quality miniatures which will be made by a proffesional miniature sculptor. This is very important to us because we are miniatures collectors and our game can not be less. We may also produce the videos from the cases resolutions in which real actors will appear (with fx makeup included!) And also we will make all EVP´s recordings for each case. The complete OST to liven up the game, will be developed. We will support via our website (which is under construction right now) to accommodate all the necessary QR codes for the game, and to be able to offer all news and updates about it. We are 100% committed to the development of AVGhost and our goal is that it become real. If with your help we can do it, many surprises await for you, new expansions, new flashlights, new characters and ghosts, but more important, many nights full of fun!

Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter. We believe that the greatest risk may be the delays that may arise in the production and subsequent delivery of the game which will be held in China.
Luckily, we have the support and all quality controls from a famous board game manufacturer, which will be responsible with us, for the production of the miniatures and game manufacture in an Asiatic factory, that are responsible of a big number of great games, including one of the most famous zombie game.
Of course, we always keep you informed of the contingencies that might arise, always keeping things with total transparency and sincerity.
On the other hand, production and post-production of the video and EVPs will be made at the end our Kickstarter, for the subsequent generation of QR codes.
We will be delight to share with you the making of all this (without revealing secrets of the game cases)
We will keep you up to date with contents and comments during the whole process of production of the game, photos and making off, so you can share and enjoy this journey with us.
