Ghost Stories Board Game
Wu-Feng, the Lord of Nine Hells, has discovered the village hiding the funeral urn containing his ashes. Four Taoist priests protect the village, as hordes of ghosts and demons descend on the town to reclaim the remains of their evil overlord. Can you hold out against the forces of eternal darkness, or will Wu-Feng recover his ashes and destroy everything in his path?
In Ghost Stories, the players work together as the Taoist priests attempting to turn back the tide of evil and save the doomed village. With mystical powers and ancient martial arts, the heroes will battle wave after wave of ghosts and demons until Wu-Feng himself rises to claim his remains. Working together is your only hope, as the ghosts increase in number and force the Taoist priests to sacrifice resources, time and even their very lives in this desperate battle against the hordes of Hell.
Ghost Stories is a cooperative game for one to four players. With modular playing tiles and a randomized deck of ghastly foes, no two games will be alike. The cards and tiles boast fantastic illustrations inspired by kung-fu legends, and a variety of excellent plastic playing pieces will draw you into the game. Gather your forces and battle the Lord of Nine Hells in the ultimate battle of good versus evil!

Ghost Stories is in my mind the best co-op of its type. The challenge of the problems the ghost deck throws at you and myriad of responses available to the player with uncertain outcomes provide great opportunities to discuss strategy around the table. Sixty minutes is the perfect length in my mind for this kind of experience; just right for that surviving longer than we thought we would feeling. It's just complex enough for real tactical depth, but not too complicated so new players can quickly get involved with a simple rules explanation from experienced players (the way co-ops games should be learned in my mind). This game does have a problem with it's poorly written rulebook, but I had the benefit of learning from people who knew the game well.
