For today’s Board Game Brunch we played Ghostbusters published by Cryptozoic Entertainment for Board Game Brunch. This cooperative game is based on the 1984 film. Ghostbusters is a great game for fans of the movie, you play as one of the Ghostbusters. With each Ghostbuster having unique abilities and ghosts springing up at you, the movie feel definitely comes through.

Our scenario objective was to trap the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man. All four characters needed to contribute to corralling him. Towards the end, tt got a little tricky as our actions were limited while we were covered in so much slime. Nonetheless the Ghostbusters prevailed and sent the Stay Puff Marshmallow man away.

Not the healthiest brunch, but a fun one. Egon used the Twinkie in an analogy to explain how extreme the current psychokinetic energy (PKE) levels were during the first Gozer incident. So, of course, that has to be included. Additionally, to commemorate our defeat of the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man, we roasted him over fire.
