It gets quite spooky on the "Spirit Stairs". There's a race in the old castle ruin, and the most courageous have the edge. The ghost lives at the top of the stairs. Being completely quiet, a few brave children dart up the stairs — everyone wants to be first to scare the ghost with a "BOOOO!" But the ghost knows this age-old game and tries to transform the players into ghosts — one after the each other!

Every turn players roll an enchanted die to see how fast they climb the stairs. If a player rolls a "ghost", he may place a ghost piece over another player's pawn. A magic magnetic field connects the two and the pawn disappears! Now the players must remember for the remainder of the game under which ghost their own figure is. If all players are transformed and another "ghost" rolled, two ghosts may be exchanged. Whoever can make it to the top of the stairs amidst the chaos wins.

Includes rules in English and French

NOTE: This game has previously been released in the United States under the name "Boo Who?" by Mega.

“My children's favourite game”

I can’t imagine such an incredibly simple game with that strange funny “click” that turns your common game to a extremely funny one (when you are playing with your kids)

This game starts as a simple “racing” game only dice based (no cards, nothing more but one dice). It represents four kids trying to reach on the first position the end of creepy-beautiful stairs.
Simplicity at its best, but… will my kids love it? They will love it mainly when the “click” factor comes.

And when will it happen (the click)?

What turns this game in a hilarant festival is the phantom factor. Sooner or later the dice will transform every kid to a ghost, and when it happens, you simply won’t distinguish the diferent players, including yours… And at that moment, when confussion comes, is when Spooky Stairs shines.

I started my experiment just looking their faces… Simply brilliant seeing how diversion strongly appears… Your kids will start laughing as the confussion grows. You won’t know until the first ghost arrives which is the Player hidden inside.

Your Kids Will Simply Love It (and so will you). That’s the perfect game to play with children between 4 and 8. Believe me, that’s a game that they will Love, a very good initiation game to introduce your children into gameboard playing.
