Next up, Ghost from "Hamlet"!
Ghost is the ghost of King Hamlet. When I was desigining the game, I wanted to include a character that did not have a Strength or Wit ability. A ghost would be perfect!
So if Ghost has no Strength or Wit, what makes him an appealing character? The ability to remove a character that is dominating the board without entering battle is a powerful ability. It can only be used once per game, but the it is powerful nonetheless.
The wording on Ghost was complicated during playtesting. At first, it was optional for Ghost to use his ability. This allowed Ghost to linger on the board and be used with cards that would switch a player's character mid battle with Ghost and get destroyed in a Battle since Ghost has a Strength and Wit value of ZERO! This is still possible; however, once it is the turn of the player who is Ghost, they have to use the ability. It is no longer optional.
Come back Next week to see a new Character Card!
