Ghoullotine Card Game

 I picked this up earlier in the year from their Kickstarter campaign because I really like the art and I'm always on the lookout for Halloween themed games.

Ghoullotine is a sort of a Frankenstein of the "don't bust" of Blackjack and the "take that" of Uno. Players are dealt a hand of cards which have values ranging from -6 to 7. Some of the cards have special abilities that effect play. 
You have to play a card every turn and that card value is added to the current total. But if your card pushes it over 13, you're out and the count resets to 0 for the remaining players. The scorecard (above, bottom) is used with the included chips (not pictured for some reason) to keep track of the current total.

Like I mentioned at the top, the art is what really grabbed me. It's a little spooky without being too scary for the younger set, which makes this a great little card game for the season!

If you want to pick up a copy, you can visit the Vindicated Games page for Ghoullotine where they also have a couple of How to Play videos.

  1. Looks cool. Love the artwork.

  2. That does look like a lot of fun. Seems simple but fast paced with a bit of strategy.
