By the way, i wanted to post pictures from my phone. How do I do that?
If you did not change the board style, there is a button "upload attachment" at the left hand side below your text box :)

Yes, that's nice :)
But they are harder to earn, because there are more ghosts which randomly appear instead of the needed ghost.

a solution for this situation is buying more haunted items. As the help section indicated, the probability of having variations to the ghost you catch depends on the items that you have. also, its nice to have at least 4 GH on the job to catch ghost.

I have 4 GH and I get to complete the set for less than an hour in 3 minute intervals

66 items (includes items of all prices) plus doors and windows plus 6 ghost hunters should be enough ;)
It still takes more time to catch 18 ghosts instead of 12.
The biggest problem is to catch a special ghost for a goal.

I'd like to see some proof of this, because I don't believe it.
I have completed the entire collection before using just one item.

I think it's just down to luck.

Yes, it is! The last two rounds of hobbies (about 1.5 hours each) I had a competition between the various hobbies to see which produced the most LP's. The ghost hunters were first with 11 LP's on the first round, and they tied with figure skating earning 9 LP's on the second. I had four each on all the hobbies except fishing and diving (three divers since teen idol began).

So, my attitude toward ghost hunting is improving, but it is still difficult to catch a stubborn ghost. Those single LP's some ghosts leave behind really help up the score.

Ugh, I feel you. Just got this goal and stupid little Flapsworth is nowhere to be seen.
Then again I'm on a bad streak with ghosthunting as I can't seem to catch the last ghost to finish the grid, now on my second day of trying.

Yeah idk if it's luck but I haven't haven't seen any significant decrease in the time it takes me to catch the ghosts. And weirdly enough, the last 2 sets are really easy for me to get 9 times out of 10. The stragglers are still usually cackles and gruesome Gretchen for me.

I've got a ridiculous amount of chains in my house. The line the walls where I don't have windows and doors. And I have 6 different rooms to increase wall space. So it's be a good update for me. The only thing I wish is that when you tap them they give you more than 7 simoleons. Seems so cheap.
