Want to be in Ghostel from Tinkerbot Games? Hereâs your chance
Ever wanted to be in a board game (without retheming), this might be your best chance. The guys over at Tinkerbot Games are giving pre-Kickstarter fans the chance to swipe two spots to be on a character card in their upcoming game âGhostelâ. Thatâs right, their talented artist Tyler will turn a photo of you into a character card. Pretty cool right? Check out the example of Tinkerbot team member Bevan below.
Want to be in Tinkerbot Games Ghostel like Bevan? You’d better enter.
Creepstone Manor has been closed for nearly a hundred years, standing dark and silent above the town of Creepstone, and thatâs just the way resident ghost Spookie likes it!â¨But now, the manor has been reopened and turned into a hotel for the living. You play the part of one of Spookieâs ghostly minions, charged with ridding the house of these warm-bodied usurpers. Use your skills of terror to send them fleeing into the night and win Spookieâs patronage. Who will be top ghost?
The game of Ghostel is made of turns, and each turn is split into a Day Phase and a Night Phase.
During the Day, new people will enter the hotel whilst those who already spent the Night and survived will calm down from their night-time visitations. Meanwhile, the ghosts are hiding in the attic, preparing for the next Night by buying more Boo Dice, Phobias to improve their scaring and Spookie favours to give those extra little bonuses.
Playtesting Ghostel with placeholder art. The final game will feature art in the style of Bevan (seen above).
We really like the look of this one, it has ghost meeples for goodness sake and the art style of the final game is looking tremendous. Who wouldnât want a little piece of that pie. Will we see a Gameapalooza team member in the finished game? Well weâre going to enter to find out, are you?
