  • I really want to run a Ghostbusters game after listening to this! Thanks for posting the handbook, this is a great read.

  • I felt the same way. I’d heard about his GB game a few times, but the stories he had were really cool.

  • Did he mention what system he was using for this? I was thinking of doing Savage Worlds myself, but just curious as to what Chris used for his game.

  • He used Gumshoe. I think he used mostly the Mutant City Blues book.
