Ghoulash: The Last Game on Earth is a paper-based game that bills itself as "a fast-paced action-adventure game for two players, played entirely on paper, using specially designed charts."[1]

Ghoulash is, at its heart, a scaled-down role-playing game, or RPG, mimicking the mechanics of a typical RPG in that each player serves as the game master for the other, hiding obstacles and items to be discovered. Its simple hide-and-seek game mechanics more closely resemble that of the schoolroom game Battleship: One player describes a move; the opponent describes the consequences of that move.

The game uses a back-story mythology to support the game-pack scenarios and has received favorable reviews at BoardGameGeek[2] and Joystiq.[3]
