The only prescription for Horse Fever is actually fixing races, buying off jockeys, and borrowing money from the mob. Or, at least, that’s the case in the new game…Chicken Pox…okay, no, it’s called Horse Fever. Players control gamblers looking to get rich of each race in three different formats of play. These play levels, set-up as easy, medium, and hard, are a board game version, a family game version, and a party game version of base play. So, you can get into the game however you choose, then work up to a higher level of difficulty as you go along.
Expanding upon the base Ghost Stories board game, the new Black Secret version of the game increases the terror of the original game by kicking the number of players up to 2-5. And that extra player gets to control the villain of the game, Wu-Feng. The other players must face off against his ghost armies and spells, but have magical mantras, which increase by with the level of play, to protect them. If you’re into the original game or Last Night on Earth, give the new Ghost Stories: Black Secret at try.
