If you like pop-up books, games, and mildly spook-y stuff, I think you’re going to like Ghosthunters!, the 3D pop-up game by Brian Lee.
Closed, the game looks like an ordinary large book.
Open the covers, and an enormous pop-up somehow emerges. Players have game pieces and a spinner, which guides them up stairs, through rooms, and sometimes back down other stairs.
Hm. Sounds like a spiffy version of Chutes and Ladders, which is a game that really needs to be 3D, I say.
Perhaps I should have saved this post for closer to October, but I saw a mother playing this game with her son on a train in December, so I’m thinking this is an anytime game.
I noticed that even with the smooth train ride, some pieces would fall off the steps. Some little ones might not like that. This little boy certainly didn’t. (We were on a Shinkansen, that ridiculously fast train that doesn’t have time to go choo-choo.) (Not one of these oh royal yeeps.)
The game just looks so cool!
Okay, giggle and sing along.
