The quick-playing reaction game Geisterblitz takes on new shape — and includes new shapes! — in Geistesblitz 5 vor 12.In the original game, five wooden items sit on the table waiting to be caught — a white ghost, a green bottle, a cute grey mouse, a blue book, and a comfortable red chair — and the item to be grabbed depends on what’s shown on the card revealed that round. Geistesblitz 5 vor 12 increases the challenge by including nine objects in five colors. Each round, a player reveals a card that shows three of these objects, and the player who grabs the object that has neither the same shape nor color appearing on the picture keeps the card — unless, that is:<br/> An object on the card is in its original color, in which case you must grab this object.<br/> And if an owl appears in the picture, you must name the object instead of grabbing it.<br/> And if the ghost appears with a clock, you must give the time on the clock instead of doing anything else.<br/> And if the magic mirror shows up, none of the other rules apply and you just need to grab whichever object is reflected by the mirror!<br/>When the card deck runs out, whoever has collected the most cards wins.
