There you go for the annual ghost race !
The cute little ghosts love that twisted castle. They all rush to reach the top of the building.
But beware ! The old ruin is full of surprises !
Along the way, the ghosts have to keep trying to dodge cannonballs tumbling down the walls, and patatras, one of the ghosts rolls down at full speed.
Then it's about staying cool and finding the quickest way!
You will need a bit of luck and a bit of strategy to be the first to reach the top and gain the title of Ghost King of the Castle !
I did many attempts to use the HexBug (an electronic cockroach) for the KAKERLAKAK line of the publisher ravensburger. I eventually used it as the severe guardian of a castle.
The castle was made of perilous gateways. The knights were supposed to climb to the top, to free the Princess, while dogding the cannonballs thrown by the HexBug.
Thanks to the vibrations of the electronic cockroach, the HexBug moved on the roof of the castle and projected the balls on the 4 sides in a random way.
The vibrations of the HexBug allowed him to move at the top of the castle and to randomly push the cannonballs from all four sides. DREI MAGIER SPIELE liked the idea of the game, but decided to replace the HexBug by a very efficient manual system.
During the course of 2019, we did many testing sessions with Rolf and Bastian and I want to thank them for their patience and efficiency !
Rolf Vogt, the illustrator did a wonderful job.
The illustrator, Rofl Vogt did an amazing job. I had the opportunity to tell him that having a game illustrated by him was one of my motivations to have a game published by DREI MAGIER SPIELE !
