Well, it's one shinier isn't it? ... Okay, why don't you just make five a bit more shiny and then that would be the most shiny? ... Because these go to six.Microbadge: Klemens Franz fan

Mysterium is a really clever game indeed; like Codenames - sort-of simultaneous with it - it's a game that is handed over 100% to the responsibility of the players...and may God have mercy on it's soul!

Terrible players = Hilariously inept game!
Great players = Hilariously inept, if awfully po-faced, game!
A mix of Terrible and Great players = Hilariously inept (and blame-ridden) game!

It's a Win-Win for everyone...apart from 'the Ghost', that is! Locked behind a steely, implacable exterior the ghost's mind is an hurricane of frustrated howling as the 'dreamers' take clear signals and bend them in to elaborately-intricate series' of confusions:

Clue given for 'Cricket Ball' as Player X's 'weapon' is a tree with twenty circular, red fruits upon it. Player responses may include:
"Trees are made of wood so it's the baseball bat, yes!";
"Trees are chopped down with an axe, surely?!"); or,
"The fruit could be cooked in to jam and, therefore, you need a frying pan? Or maybe you'd chop the fruit up with the scissors?!"
...and so on. Who'd be one of the restless dead, eh?

Nice card for a great game.
