OVERVIEW OF GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD
Ghost in the Graveyard is a fun nighttime game for kids that holds similarities to Hide and Go Seek. As the ghost hides, the other players search for them, hoping to find them first. Once they find them, they will announce it to the whole group, staking their claim on the next turn of being the ghost in the graveyard.
To setup the game, choose a player to be the first ghost. Each of the hunters should then be given a flashlight. The game is ready to begin.
To play the game, the ghost will go hide in a certain area. This area may be the backyard or the woods, but it must have boundaries in order for the game to be finished in a timely manner. Once the ghost picks their spot, they are unable to move.
After a time, the hunters will begin their search, using their flashlights to find the ghost that has hidden themselves in their graveyard. When a hunter finds the ghost, they should yell “Ghost in the Graveyard!” This announces the finding to the other hunters.
The player who finds the ghost will become the next ghost. The game continues in this manner until the players are finished.
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end when the players are done playing. There is a winner each round, but there is no final winner in the game.
