I'd say it's abit of an up to date Cluedo, but after playing a few times it gets old quick!
really lacks in the final section of the game,
Should be a $50 game not 90+!
This game holds a special place in my cold, dead, incorporeal, heart. It was one of the very first modern board games I ever played and it's the one I've played the most with my friends who have now moved everywhere but here (oof that was slightly hard to write). I tended to play the ghost with this one as being the ghost is kind of like DMing (Dungeons and Dragons style screen and all) and it was always so much fun listening to the psychic players trying to figure out what in the heck my clyes were pointing them to. There were always huge laughs to be had when we did a postgame run down of what went wrong (something always does). This will never leave my collection or my fondest memories and I hope to play it again sometime in the near future.
I bought this game because the theme sounded really cool and because I love Dixit, which this is very similar to. I still love the concept, but unfortunately it's a lot more complicated to play than Dixit and requires a much bigger time commitment. I found that some people really just didn't "get" it, so you have to carefully choose the people you ask to play this with you. Hence it hasn't actually been played a whole lot - but I'm looking forward to playing it again with a group of motivated players with just the right atmosphere.
Played this a number of times already. As 2 player through to 4 player so far and love it. We are lovers of dixit so enjoy the card element in mysyerium that is similar to dixit. And the soundtrack for the game is great. Creates a cool ambiance. Easy to learn. Fun to play. Great Co op type with real outside of the box thinking.
