My sister-in-law teaches pre school. She has this game in an unmarked box with no rules and was hoping I could identify it (actually, I guaranteed her my peeps on BGG could) and having done so could then easily find the rules.

So, BGGers, please don't let me down. What game with wooden discs and cute ghosts is this?

This is going to be one of those good news/bad news posts.

Good news: the game is called Anima.

Bad news: it was recalled because the paint had lead in it.

So probably not one your sister-in-law should break out with the pre-schoolers!

Still, we identified it, so you can show off about that at least.

doesn't get more good news/bad news than that I suppose. Thanks for the ID. I'll pass on the recall notice to her too.

Hopefully she passes the info on to the school.

The parents deserve to know their children may have been exposed to lead paint, especially on something small enough for children to have put in their mouth.

Not sure how I feel on this. On one hand, it doesn't take much lead paint to potentially cause problems. On the other hand, calling parents and saying "We found an old game that was made with lead paint, we've since thrown it away" sounds alarmist.

A properly prepared statement won't sound alarmist.

Yes, some parents might freak out more then others but it's still their right to know imo.

Additionally, if the school DOES find out and they don't tell the parents they are opening themselves up to a HUGE liability issue.

If I had this game at home, I'd slap a coat of clearcoat on it and keep my kids from eating the pieces. But there's no way I'd put this game out at a school.

In the USA maybe...but not sure how that would work in other countries.

it's effectively Candyland with a modular board. You'd throw it out regardless

I'd probably convince myself that the recall makes it a rarity and keep it like an idiot.

Pete (does a lot of that)

On second thought, we cancelled our plans and won't be needing a babysitter Thursday night. Thanks for offering though!
