The goal of the ghost is to lead the players to the culprit over the course of a game week.

Being a big fan of the X-COM computers games for a long time I approached this with a bit of hesitation. A new release in 2015, XCOM the board game is a cooperative board game for up to four players. It certainly makes me think of pandemic but is still very different. To my surprise I thoroughly enjoyed playing this, the game also comes with nicely designed cards and detailed miniatures. The game play is challenging but a bit more laid back than pandemic.
