When used in a multi-player game, "ghosted" is used to describe a confrontation in which you destroy another player flawlessly. (As if the player were not even there, or couldnt touch you at all.)

verb, ghost-ed
1. To have your bedroom become decorated with kleenex stye-ghosts, office-ghosts, snowmen-ghosts or other ghosts of varying thematics.
2. To be honored mischieviously while bedroom has been left unoccupied
3. To have a current condition or obsession be highlighted by craft ghosts

From the Old English gast meaning "soul, spirit, life, breath,"
(cf. O.S. gest, O.Fris. jest, M.Du. gheest, Ger. Geist "spirit, ghost"), from PIE base *ghois- "to be excited, frightened" (cf. Skt. hedah "wrath;" Avestan zaesha- "horrible, frightful;" Goth. usgaisjan, O.E. gæstan "to frighten"). This was the usual W.Gmc. word for "supernatural being," and the primary sense seems to have been connected to the idea of "to wound, tear, pull to pieces."
Becca, you are SO getting ghosted when you go to work tonight!
