It's "Haunted House"!I never had that one but a kid brought it to infant school on that free day before the summer holidays one year and I always remembered it for the following reason...He also brought a Thunderbirds annual in and it was well read and had a lot of loose pages and I stood it up against the wall on a radiator and all the loose pages fell out and went down behind the rad and he started to cry.I was so scared and spent a couple of hours with a couple of wooden rulers trying to get them out...was total panic, you know what it was like in those days!Happy Days though!
Formula 1, I've still got it and put it on my 'Other Collectables' blog a while ago!'Monsemas'...An ocean-less planet of small peaks and alpine lakes, that looks like a honey soaked lychee.
Maybe it was called 'Haunted House' in the UK, but here in its country of origin, it was called 'WHICH WITCH?"
Haunted House it is! Well done guys. My friend called it 'Drop it Down the Chimney'! The cards that came with it would make great business cards - 'Ghoulish Gertie'. For monsterheads it was a must and is quite pricey now on the 'bay. There was a later UK edition but the name escapes me - Scream In? Devlin, wasn't there a a US Marx game called Haunted House?
Given enough ROPE, I liked playing Cluedo in the LIBRARY with MISS SCARLET.
i always loved Mouse Trap, Take the Brain and Monopoly! Flying Hats was always fun too!
If you're referring to the '60s game with the relief-sculpted plastic board, it was indeed called Haunted House, but I think it was from Ideal Toys. Incidentally, both that game and Which Witch? were designed by Marvin Glass & Associates.
That's it Devlin. I'm getting mixed up with the Marx Hootin Haunted House you had in the US. I treated myself to Ideals' Monster Lab a few years back. Don't think it was available in the UK in the 60's but I would have pestered my parents no end for one! It's huge and monstrous!
