After a major power outage struck New York, the Ghostbusters must set out to capture all the ghosts escaping from their containment unit.

With the whole city suffering from a blackout and an onslaught of ghost rampaging around, it's up to the Ghostbusters to quell the chaos and get those ghosts busted! Ghostbusters: Blackout is a fully cooperative board game for 1-4 players. In it, players roll dice and allocate them to move around the city, capture ghosts, and buy upgrades for their ghost-busting tech, all while trying to keep the city from collapsing from the ensuing chaos!

I just finished up a few rounds of this. It’s not going to set the world on fire, but it is the best Ghostbusters game to date (a low bar, but still...). It’s a fun little dice placement game with lots of effects on the ghosts to keep it interesting, fun gear to buy, and diverse cast of Ghostbusters to play as. I would absolutely play this over Thanos Rising, and I’d probably pick it over the Batman game IDW put out because it’s shorter and has way less upkeep to deal with. I’m biased, but I’m having fun with it.
