The classic Clue game gets the “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” treatment. A team of paranormal eliminators race to a farmhouse (in Ecto-1) to roast some ghosts and solve a mystery.

Paranormal cards add another layer to the game, letting players team up to battle a ghost or come closer to the truth. After a player makes an accusation, check the Tobin’s Spirit Guide card sleeve to see if they’re right (a correct accusation wins the game). The board game is designed for up to six players, ages eight and older.
