Gather players around a Ouija board.
All players are Ghosts, except one or two Visitors.
On a shared card, each Ghost writes the name of their spirit, a Personal Item in the House related to their life or death, and whether they are Good or Evil. This reference is for Ghosts only.
On a second card, write which Rooms each Ghost resides in. Give this card to the Visitors.
Visitors go from Room to Room. To ask a question, a Visitor and ALL Ghosts place their fingers on the Ouija's planchette. Only the Ghost in the same Room as the Visitor may answer.
Visitors can RELEASE a Ghost by bringing their Personal Item to the correct Room. A Released Ghost manifests and has a moment of direct interaction with the Visitors, such as speaking to, touching, or attacking them.
Visitors can BANISH a Ghost by throwing their Personal Item into the Fireplace or bringing their Personal Item to the Room of another Ghost (even accidentally). A Banished Ghost falls silent.
