Tinkerbot Games are very pleased to announce that the first print run of Ghostel has been so successful, demand has risen above production.

As a result, a brand new print run has been ordered from WinGo Games.

Due to the high demand for copies of Ghostel to be delivered in time for Halloween, the first batch of production will be sent by air, with the following batch being sent by sea.

Ghostel designer Bevan Clatworthy said:

“The initial reaction to Ghostel has blown us away. We had hoped that our first publication would be enjoyed by board gamers and families, but we didn’t expect to sell out so soon. People have really taken to the design and some have been telling us that they are already starting to plan Halloween Ghostel parties for October!”

Gino from Tinkerbot Games said:

“All the lovely things people have said about the game have really made us proud of what we’ve done. As first time publishers we’re even more pleased to see how many people have appreciated the efforts we made in the quality of the components, from the 3D ghost player tokens to the quality of the cards and the box itself!”

Copies of Ghostel are still available in board game shops around the world while stocks last, otherwise ask your retailer to pre-order a copy in time for the next batch to arrive in time for Halloween.

More information about Ghostel can be found on the homepage (https://tinkerbotgames.com/) or on BoardGameGeek (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/169475/ghostel)

My wife (who rarely games and will join in with the kids) surprised herself in having more fun than she thought. My daughter and myself loved it she especially enjoyed the sneaking in to nab the points form under someone else’s nose (very devious 9 yo!) my 7 yo son was “helping” me move, the nuances were lost on him but I enjoyed his wanting to be involved.

All in all glad I backed and will see the table as a family game regularly.

This has been a game that we go for just about every chance we can. My wife and I love the two player variant and it’s been great when we’ve had more around the table as well. It’s straight forward, yet has a lot of fun strategy. It’s definitely turning into one of our go to games!

Really enjoy this little game. It is easy to learn and fun to play. My whole family plays and loves it. It is fun at any time but real good to play around Halloween. Get that Ghostie in there and scare away those pesky guests.

The quality of the elements in the game are so nice – really love the 3D ghost player tokens! Game play is a lot of fun and the artwork is great, too. Also glad to receive the Cultist expansion, which can give you a bit of an edge so make sure you play with it! The only downside for me is that it’s 4 player max, really wish it was 5!

Got this after seeing a card of a friend. Fantastic, easy to learn and had great fun

Great dice placement for family’s and a bit of crunch for gamers. Outfox your opponents and attempt to be the scariest ghost of them all. Guests have scare values that need to be achieved. Ideally you want to be the only presence present.
Cooperation is needed though to bag the big points. Game bending cards add another spice to this spooky speculation scare fest.

A highly enjoyable game that’s easy to learn and also has enough room for strategy to be accessible to players of a wide range of skill levels.The artwork is stunning and the game has great replay value (plus those 3D ghost meeples are adorable!)

Great fun. Simple to learn. Sort-of cooperative and seriously vicious, if that’s the way you want to play. And it was. And we did!!

Just received mine. Components are great. Thick linen cardstock.
Ghost meeples are fantastic, paperweights almost. Box size was a pleasant surprise. With shelf space at a premium it was refreshing to have a practical size box instead of today’s fad of selling boxes of air.
Receiving ahead of schedule for a first time KS shows you guys did your homework.

Would be glad to back future games from the “Bots”

Hi Gino, mine arrived yesterday and it’s just AWESOOOOOOOOME. Cant thank you guys enough for a classic game, you all did so much to keep us up to date and made sure we all got our games as soon as humanly possible, so follow these instructions…..
1. get everyone involved and all stand in a circle facing the back of the next person
2. reach out and pat the back of the person in front of you and say “well done for doing such an awesome job”
3.smile knowing that you all contributed to making Ghostel the Great game it is.

Many thanks to all at Tinkerbot Games.

We played Ghostel for the first time this afternoon and we loved it.
My 10 year old niece was the scariest ghost.
Thank you for this great game,
