Just got my copy in the mail today and I'm excited to give it a whirl as soon as we can get some players. I'm wondering how much people are allowed to talk while they are out and about on expeditions. It seems like it would be lame if the haunted/trapped people can say what their goal is and then that information can be shared around the spirit circle. Especially with the card where you have to scare someone to break the haunt. How is someone going to get scared if they are expecting it? I'm sure I'm missing something. Thanks for the help!

You must do what the cards say. Generally you can talk and say whatever you want, unless you are restricted by your Curse Cards and/or Haunting Cards. For Instance, the Maddening Fear Haunting Card states:

Maddening Fear wrote:
You may growl, scream, or roar, but you may not speak.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
If you fail to scare the player, they are trapped too.

If you scare the player the Haunting Card is broken.
