Bust Some Ghosts!

If you're at a loose end this coming weekend, and you've never read Ghostbusters International the RPG, there's a site currently hosting the .pdfs of the game.

It's a quick read and a fun game. With the new film coming out in just a month it's likely a bit of nostalgia will make you want to dust it off.

I'm not entirely sure of the legal situation regarding these .pdfs but what I can say is that the game is no longer for sale and hasn't been for quite some time.

If you're feeling a bit unsure about how to proceed because of this, the writers are Sandy Petersen and Lynn Willis, with Gregg Stafford. You can hunt them out and support other things they (or their estates) currently have for sale.

Sandy Petersen has stayed with development on Call of Cthulhu 7ed. Although Greg Stafford is currently a shaman he still has games about like HeroQuest and Pendragon. Lynn Willis passed away in 2013.

The second edition, (my boxed set is shown in the following photographs) has design credits for Aaron Allston, (now also deceased) and Douglas Kaufman whom I'd love to offer more details about.
This is what's inside if you're lucky! Note the "Ghost Die".
