Brrrr... The mansion is invaded by monsters and ghosts!

Each player will have to trust his or her memory to skillfully lead them to the exit and regain calm.

Goal of the game: be the first to lower the value of your hand to 5 points or less.

The game is played in 5 rounds.  At the start of a round, the cards are shuffled and 4 cards are dealt to each player (each card has a number of points).

Players must not look at their cards.  The rest of the cards make up the draw pile and are placed face down in the center of the table.

Players place their 4 cards in a 2 x 2 square in front of them, face down.  They secretly look at and memorize the 2 cards right in front of them and then turn them face down.

Then they play clockwise.  The first player draws a card that they look at secretly.

He chooses between 2 actions: discard the card in the discard pile, face up (if he wishes, the player can use the "power" of the card if it has one); or place the card in his deck, wherever he wishes, face down.  He then discards the replaced card, face up.

Then it is up to the next player to play.  He can decide to take the card discarded by the previous player to integrate it into his deck, or draw a new card and perform one of the 2 actions above.

As the game progresses, players try to reduce the value of their game by replacing their cards to get 5 points or less.
As soon as a player thinks they have scored 5 points or less, they announce "Spooky Boo"! and the round ends.

All players then turn their cards over (face up) and count the value of their hand.  If the player who called "Spooky Boo" is correct, he scores 0 points and the other players count and score their points.  If the player who called "Spooky Boo" is wrong and has more than 5 points, he takes 10 penalty points and the other players get a score of 0 points.

All cards are shuffled and a new round is started.  At the end of the 5 rounds, the player with the least points wins the game.
