I am really excited about this expansion and just can't wait for it to finally come out - so I've decided not to wait at all! I've already been busy creating an "Automated Wu-Feng" variant for the game even before its release; now its time for some more pre-release fun!

So apparently Ghost Stories: Black Secret will include blank Curses so that you can create your own Curses. Now that you have read the rules and still know nothing more about Curses that that they have a level (1-4) and a color (blue, red, yellow, or green)* I'd like to see your best ideas for Curses!

So here are the contest rules:

1 To enter, specify what level and (though I'm not sure it matters) color your Curse will be and what it does. You may enter as many times as you like.
2 The contest will end on September 30 at 11:59pm EST.
3 The winner will be judged by me (because, ya know, I am offering the prize), but I will definitely take Thumbs into account!
4 The winner will receive 8 , enough to purchase the Black Secret Fan microbadge, when it is inevitably created (see how I look ahead?)
5 If there are not at least five entries by five separate posters, there will be no winner. Sorry, but there has to be some competition!
6 What are you waiting for? Get going!!!

*Although we do know what a few of them do:

1. The active player discards Tao token(s)
2. Discard the bottom card of the ghost deck
3. Add an Incarnation of Wu-Feng to your hand
4. Move a ghost
5. Activate the Shadow of Wu-Feng

Well, there's just so much to pick from...

Remove a ladder (level 3, I'd say, unless it is real easy to regenerate ladders. Same level as the bloody mantra that restores them, basically)
Activate 1 demon (move or dig) (level 1)
Devour a villager (WM) (level 3)
Haunt a tile (level 3 or 4)
Remove a bloody mantra + all Qi on it, and draw a new one (level 2)
Cackle maniacally at the players (level 0)
Draw an incarnation and add it to your hand (level 2)
Remove a Moon Crystal from a pedestal (WM) (level 2)
Remove Su-Ling from the board (WM) (level 1)
Move the Portal (WM) (level 2)


I could go on and on, but I'll let others have some fun too.

Ok, now that the game is released I've started a new contest (well, a continuation of this contest, really), with a set deadline. You can find it here.
