This game was an absolute joy to read and to play! The mechanics only require one read over to understand, and can be referenced easily by players in-game. I highly recommend playing this with a small to medium sized group, and it translated really well over zoom! If you're in need of a game in quarantine times and have any level of ttrpg experience, choose Bring Down The House! It's definitely worth the download & has huge replay value.
Bring Down the House
A downloadable game
You are a GHOST who haunts an EXTREMELY CURSED MANSION. Where there are no humans present, you can travel the grounds freely in your spirit form. But as soon as someone sets foot on the premises, you are CONFINED TO AN OBJECT. The previous occupants of your home DIED UNDER CURIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES that you DEFINITELY HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH, and for a time you roamed unrestricted. But NEWCOMERS HAVE ARRIVED, and you are once again TRAPPED. If you want to regain what passed for freedom in the afterlife, you'll need to GET RID OF THEM...one way or another.
