For more information, here’s a brief overview of Ghosts of Christmas Passed courtesy of a press release we received:
Ghosts of Christmas Passed is something we’ve been thinking about since we released the previous Christmas case, Buy Hard. That let us seed in a teeny bit of foreshadowing through A Fumble in the Dark, something unique to our format that we think is a wee treat for eagle-eyed players. It has everything: characters, art, noises, words – I think we might even have included a ghost? – Dave Mccabe, Writer
