Ghostbusters: Protect the Barrier

Review: Ghostbusters Protect the Barrier

Ghostbusters: Protect the Barrier

The new Ghostbusters reboot may not have broken box office records, however, it did create a pretty great board game. Ghostbusters: Protect the Barrier is a co-op game that puts players in the roles of the four ladies from the 2016 Ghostbusters movie. Will your team of Ghostbusters have what it takes to make it out of the building alive?

The players must get all 8 Paranormal Energy Devices out of the building before it becomes overrun with ghosts. This game is published by Mattel and is actually a reskin of a 2013 German game called Ghost Fightin’ Treasure Hunters. Check out the full video review to get our thoughts on the game and see why this would be a great addition to your game shelf.

You can purchase the game via Amazon or check out your local game shop today.


  • Love the rule variations and cool miniatures
  • Fun co-op play that the kids loved
  • Challenging for adults and kids


  • I really dislike the small card sizes
  • Like most games with dice, bad rolls can slow things down

I'm a huge fan of strategy games and pretty much anything that involves "city building". My love of board games goes back to my childhood and passion for building relationships with others.
