Spiel 2013 Preview: Panik

Panik box and gamePanik is a simple card game that sounds like Ghostbusters in all but name – so that appeals to me straight-away.  Each player starts with a team of 9 ghost hunters and 4 random manor cards.  Players look at their manor cards, choose one to place face-up, and place the other 3 face-down (with one of their tandem ghost hunter cards next to one of the face-down manors).

Players then take turns placing one of their ghost hunters next to any mansion (whether it’s face-up or face-down).  Each manor can have a maximum of 4 ghost hunters next to it.  When a player places a ghost hunter next to one of their own manors, they can also expel any one ghost hunter already placed there (its owner chooses which other manor it is placed next to instead).

Some hunters have special powers like revealing any face-down manor card, or moving a hunter to their location.  Some hunters’ power is that they can not be expelled. Read the rest of this entry »
