Ghostbusters Return to the Meeple!

“I love this plan! I’m excited to be a part of it! Let’s do it!” – Peter Venkman

Join us at The Malted Meeple on October 11th from 4 PM – Midnight for a ghostbustin’ good time! The spookiest of all seasons HAROLDS the return of Cleveland Ghostbusters to the halls of the Meeple for the night. You would be RAMIS if you missed this year’s paranormal activities. We will be working together to raise money for Extra Life and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals while bustin’ all kinds of ghosts along the way. Costumes are encouraged!

Get up close and personal with Vigo the Carpathian’s haunted painting, pose for a picture with the giant inflatable Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, or check out the one-of-a-kind Ghostbusters vehicles parked right in the front of the Meeple. You can use your own camera to snap a memory or you can get a retro polaroid with a $5 cash donation to Extra Life Charities! That donation goes directly to Extra Life and allows you to not only have the polaroid as a keepsake, but to raid the Ghostbusters costumes and prop selections to truly get into character.

From 4 PM – Midnight in the Great Hall, we will have various Ghostbusters-themed tabletop games for playing at your leisure. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to play – Game Master Alex Ford will be on hand to teach you the finer points of ghost busting. Check out the list below for a sneak peek:

  • Ghostbusters: Protect the Barrier (2016)
  • The Real Ghostbusters Board Game (1980s)
  • Ghostbusters Uno (2016 and Classic)
  • Ghostbusters: The Board Game (Cryptozoic)
  • Ghostbusters: Movie Match (a custom game, come playtest!)

Below you’ll find a schedule of special events – just call us ahead of time or message us on Facebook to reserve your spot!
