WRUP: What to do if you want to attract a lot of ghosts to your house for some reason edition

This is where

So you want to attract a whole lot of ghosts to your house for some reason. Well, far be it from us to stop you! Here are some important tips to consider for this goal.

  • Make sure you live in a reality where ghosts are real. This one probably isn’t one, based on lots of evidence, but if you’re really gung-ho about it don’t let that stop you.
  • Location is important. If your house is located on an ancient burial ground, so much the better. If your house is located on an ancient burial ground which was itself located on a burial ground, great. If not, just go dig up some burial grounds and dump them in your front yard, that should anger up the spirits just fine.
  • Provide a welcoming atmosphere. A bright, airy, well-lit living space is great for human beings, but it’s like living in a tin room full of dog farts for ghosts. Make sure the place is dank, full of mildew, and covered in cobwebs.
  • Offer all the accoutrements of home. Considerate haunted homeowners make sure to provide lots of chains to rattle, old paintings to possess, and suits of armor to pose in hallways. If these things are beyond your humble means, use plastic chains and pose discount action figures in the hallway.
  • Write down why you thought this was a good idea. It’s a really awful idea, and writing down why it seemed like a good idea will help you when you are later asking why you thought otherwise.

We hope all of these things help you with your goal. Let us know how things are going in the comments of What Are You Playing. Or let us know about your gaming plans, that works too.

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): ​Stop, stop! It can’t be the weekend yet! I have so much more to write!

Pokemon Go will probably happen a bit due to the quests. If I get enough work done, I might do ARK Park again, just to check out launch a bit more. I’m kind of debating about picking up Project Gorgon and/or Sea of Thieves, but… I’m so behind on gaming right now (sorry Overwatch, Monster Hunter Online, The Elder Scrolls Online, and all of those Steam titles I’ve only half-finished if that).

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Trove Trove Trove Trove. Also probably some Guild Wars 2 Super Adventure Box, but mostly Trove. Trying to decide whether to splurge for the new class or just keep grinding my current ones!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): The usual stuff in Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft, probably tossing in some PixARK to mix things up. Also continuing reading through an RPG line that’s finally dead after an unexpected revival, but that’s not really playing something.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I think I might have more time than usual to game this weekend, but there are more games than usual from which to choose. I wouldn’t mind a couple of long sessions on the RIFT Prime server to push my character toward level 50, some more time getting to know Project Gorgon (if I can figure out some hitching issues), and good ol’ rep grinding in World of Warcraft.

Patron Pierre: For this long (3-day long) Easter weekend, I have nothing planned except gaming and leisure time, that’s so cool :D I’ve started playing Far Cry 5 and I like the game a lot, so many dead cultists on schedule this weekend :D . I’m still playing XCOM 2 too, and aliens will join cultists in the slaughtering process ;-) . And I’ll probably add some World of Tanks and PUBG time to get my share of PvP gaming. Enjoy your gaming weekend MOP readers, and let us know what are your plans in the comments.”
