Hi,
I'be just received this game in a trade and two of the ghost figures are missing. How bad will it affect the gameplay?

You'll never miss them.

And if it gets so bad that you need them all, you're going to lose right away anyway!

You could substitute salt and pepper shakers or anything else you dream up and it wouldn't affect game play whatsoever. Aesthetically it would be less than ideal; the question is how much that would bug you.

On the plus side it wouldn't come up that often - it's rare to have all the haunters in play simultaneously, and odds are you'll be dead in short order should that occur.

My response too... if you need them, you won't be needing them for long, so it's sort of moot!


That said, I haven't played with White Moon nor Black Secret expansions, nor the promos, but AFAIK, none of them would make use of those extra figurines in any meaningful way.

As others have said, it should almost never affect game play. I think the worst I've seen was 4 simultaneous haunters on the board. Any more than that and it probably means you're about to lose. You want to get rid of those guys as quickly as possible.

Thank you very much for all the responses and a bit of strategy guidance on the side.
