"Ghost Stories: Shadow Swords" is a homemade 'expansion' for 'Ghost Stories' that will allow up to 8 players in the same game. A PDF containing all the rules is available in the Files section:

Shadow Swords

Printable templates for the 'corner boards' are included. Additional components are required from a second copy of 'Ghost Stories', or can be easily proxied. 'Shadow Swords' has been thoroughly tested for balance and playability. If you've ever wanted to gang up against Wu-Feng with seven of your closest friends, now's your chance.

Enjoy.

So with more than a year and almost 800 downloads can anyone share first hand reports of their experience with this?

Okay, so another year has passed… has anyone actually tried this out yet?

The Silent Curse of Shadow Swords...
Well, ...yet another year passes. Now over 1000 downloads and STILL nobody with any comments... ^_~

Sorry 'Mystic - don't know what to tell you. If it's any consolation, I think it plays great. In fact, I played with it a couple weeks ago (for TableTop day) and had a blast. I am probably biased, of course, but I'm apparently the only feedback you're going to get.

...Everbody else who has tried it must have had their souls consumed by the gaping Kharmic maws of the Shadow Swords...

I glimpsed over this game because it was only four players. Bought 2 copies this game recently only because of this variant to have 5-8 and we played it with 6. Worked nicely. I like the fact that instead of a haunting happening every 3 turns with the 4 players, it goes in a 2-4 so planning that out nicely adds a challenge.

We all had fun. Even with 6 it didn't feel like we had to wait a long time probably because everyone is trying to see what is going on and the turns are quick.

Wow, ...more than six years after the original post, and the first feedback has now officially arrived! Hurrah! ^_^

Thanx for your comments, K. I'm glad you and your group had fun. Happy New Year!
