We tried the game in Essen and loved it, very nice design and clear, and box cards are high quality, we've bought.

Really nice two player game with a good amount of back and forth.
The limit of one card played at each location sound like it is very limiting when you first read the rules but it is an essential mechanic as it slows the game down from a simply spamming cards to an intricate balancing game where you must decide to outright compete with your opponent and risk losing or allow them a few easy victory points whilst you clean up elsewhere.

Not sure you would ever reach the 11 victory point instant win, however forcing your opponent to end the game (draw the last card) when you have a slight majority is satisfying as a win condition.

Very interesting theme and nicely dark artworks.

Very beautiful artwork and very nice way to create a gamebox also! I really like the games from Ludonaute. Again, this is a very good 2-player game I certainly wanna have when it becomes available.

card game with beautiful art and a short story included in the rules. Players are ghosts who try to frighten the new inhabitants of an old ghost house. Ghosts appear in 5 different appearances and colors and all have unique abilities. Players lay either a ghost card or a location card on a human inhabitant card, both trying to gain the points an inhabitant gives you when frightening him.

There is more to the game than meets the eye. You can move the characters and phantoms about, types of phantom have different effects which can affect your play zone and also your opponent's. The artwork is very atmospheric. A nice 2 player game that lasts 20-30 minutes.

Fun little game - I think area modifiers might have made for a good addition (working with/against different styles of ghosts, and could be changed with some environmental manipulation via cards and abilities), but... ces la vis.

Nice package, great artwork, thick cards, interesting theme inspired by an old video game gem : Haunted. Phantom is very appealing in the first place. Unfortunately, like so many of the two player card games it mimics - Cold War, Cesar and Cleopatra, Roma, Nautilus - the theme is a thin as a cigarette paper - it is even more disappointing in this case - and the mechanic pretty predictable and not quite original (I put that card on my side of the table, trying to accumulate forces to gain a bonus and affect your own set in front of me...). Phantom is not bad, but it does not quite deliver IMO. After playing so many of the above, I think I prefer the simpler yet clever works of Knizia - Lost Cities and Schotten Totten. They are more streamlined and more straight to the point.

Phantom reminds me a lot of a tamer version of Babel. It's a similar two-player tug-of-war but it places a lot more restrictions on what players can do and where they can do it and therefore doesn't have the ridiculous over-the-top combos and wild swings that were the hallmark of the Rosenberg game.

Even though that makes the game feel a bit less mean you're still discard each other's cards and snatching away victims so it's not that it's not a confrontative game. It's just that you don't have to deal with devastation and aniihilation each and every turn. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing most certainly depends on personal style and preferences.

Not bad, but 2-player tactical, card-manipulating, tug-of-war game is not my thing...

--

The game material is poor - low quality cards, rules fixed(!) to the box, damage-prone box edges...
Poor graphics too.

A cool premise, I really wanted to like it, but doesn't work that well. No strategy, not enough choices. A pity.

One play in Essen. Maybe we missed the point but we found no interesting game play in this.

Seem pretty abstract. Play cards in columns according to color codes to claim cards as victory points.
