Ghostbusters: Blackout is a fully cooperative board game developed by IDW Games and designed by Jon Cohn with art by Dan Schoening.


After a major power outage struck New York, the Ghostbusters must set out to capture all the ghosts escaping from their Containment Unit. With the whole city suffering from a blackout and onslaught of ghosts rampaging around, it's up to the Ghostbusters to quell the chaos and get those ghosts busted! Ghostbusters: Blackout is a cooperative board game for 2-4 players. In it, players roll dice and allocate them to move around the city, capture ghosts, and buy upgrades for their ghost-busting tech, all while trying to keep the city from collapsing from the ensuing chaos![3]
