Renowned Mediums race to figure out a secret object that their teammate—a Spirit—is trying to communicate. Mediums take turns asking their Spirits questions about the secret object.

But there’s a catch—Spirits work in mysterious ways, and only write the first few letters of each answer on the Spirit Pad. Figure out the answers to the questions, and guess the secret object before the other team to win!

Phantom Ink was originally Kickstarted under the name Ghost Writer. The name was changed in July 2021 before the first printing.
