GHOUL is a BINGO-style live game and is included in the 2019 Ebon Gate selection of live games, which means that it requires a Service Pass (it is not an automated game; therefore, the Games Pass will not work for it). Information for the 2019 sessions is below. For general information on the game outside of this year's Ebon Gate, please see the main GHOUL page.

In the Common language, it reads:
GHOUL is a traditional BINGO-style game.  In order to play, you must be holding a valid game card and dauber.  You can type DAUB HELP to get more information on how to mark your card with the dauber.

GAMEPLAY:
On your GHOUL card are 24 random numbers out of 75 total possible numbers, laid out in a 5x5 grid, and with each number corresponds to a certain letter - 01-15 for G, 16-30 for H, 31-45 for O, 46-60 for U and 61-75 for L.

Before each game, the host will announce a winning pattern, prize and number of winners.  Then, the game will start by numbers randomly being selected by the host.  When a number you have is called, you can DAUB it in order to mark it on your card.

RULES:
* You can only use valid GHOUL cards (i.e. attuned, unmarked, and purchased at this year's Ebon Gate festival) for starting each game or game series that requires a new card.  When looking at the card, one area will note in messy writing: "DAUB me!  This attuned game card is currently unmarked and ready for an Ebon Gate 5119 GHOUL In The Greenhouse session!"
* Game cards that have been FOLDed or altered are ineligible for winning.  You can ANALYZE your card to see if this is the case.
* You can only play one GHOUL card at one time.
* You can only win on a GHOUL card that is an attuned game card and daubed by you.
* The FIRST daub mark on your card (including the FREE space) must be made WITHIN the initial daubing window -- not before, not after.
* You must DAUB your card only with numbers which have been called and are marked on the case.  Cards marked with numbers not called are ineligible to win.
* LOOK at the case for the scoreboard information.
* Only patterns which are listed on the case or announced by the host are valid to win.
* You must call 'GHOUL!' when you have won.
* In the case of multiple winners, whoever has the most daubed spaces on their card wins.  If all spaces are filled in (e.g. a blackout game), then a best-of-3 roshambo between winners will determine placement.
* No refunds; all payouts are final.

WINNING PATTERNS:
Each game will have a different winning pattern and may or may not include the FREE space as applicable.

SINGLE LINE - This pattern is any line of 5 numbers, either vertical, horizontal or diagonal.
DOUBLE LINE - This pattern is any two single lines of 5 numbers; they may or may not be able intersect.  Some games may require certain intersections like the X- or L-patterns.
BLACKOUT - All numbers on the card must have been called.
4 CORNERS - This pattern is simply the four corners of the 5x5 grid.
OUTERFRAME - This pattern is the outer ring of numbers on the edge of the card - the inner 9, including the FREE spot, will not count.
Z-PATTERN - This pattern consists of three lines, two of which must be on opposite sides and the third a diagonal betwixt them, and can be rotated either way like the letters Z or N.
