When cards cause candy to move from one player to another, who chooses?

And what happens in ties?

We allowed Robin Hood to choose which of the tied players is affected, but the candy is chosen randomly, but with ones like Vampire, we let the player being affected choose which candy to give.

Please clarify if we are doing this right.

In general ties are all decided by the player that placed a ghost below the kid.

So placing below Robin Hood means that player would get to choose the candy taken and decide any ties.

The Vampire gets to choose which candy to pass on.

So other than randomly choosing a candy, you had it right. And to be honest, if everyone is using the same rule of randomly giving out candy and your having fun with it, no harm, no foul


Thanks for playing and reaching out, have fun!

Thanks.

By the way, my set came with 2 promo cards #100 and #101.

That leaves a large gap in #'s.

Are there expansions being planned?

Is there a way to get on a list to find out about other promo cards?

Those are all questions for Steve Jackson Games.

My guess would be that if the base game sells well, they will look into expansions for it later (They have all my art!)

I know that I've thoroughly enjoyed Ghosts Love Candy (and Mob Town, for that matter)
and hope Danny gets all the success and accolades he deserves...

Agreed! I really hope it sells fantastically so we can get expansion stuff and fill up the box. I'm showing it to everyone I can and everyone has loved it so far. So as soon as it's available retail, I believe at least two of my friends will be buying it.

My group thinks that Robin Hood is kind of unfair if he still steals when tied because in the first round he's going to cancel another player's entire turn unless the 1st player goes to him. But Robin's candy might not be valuable to that player. So we ruled that Robin Hood doesn't have an effect if there is a tie for most. I like the idea but it's kind of a poorly designed card.

Robin Hood is rough on the first round, but he is one of my favorite cards. If that rule works for your group, I am all about players adapting the game to their preferences to get the best experience for their group, I do it all the time. I personally feel that Robin Hood's power fits with the lighthearted nature of the game.
