Game Play

The winner is the first player to travel through the Haunted House and reach the charmed circle at the top of the stairs, but there are lots of dangers along the way to catch you out, when the metal ball is dropped down the chimney. The game play is identical to the 1971 1st edition of Haunted House.

Game Contents

A fully complete game will have the following contents.

The parts are very similar to the 1st edition of Haunted House, but you will notice that the names of the cards have changed. Ghoulish Gerty has become Ghastly Arthur, Glenda the Good has become the Friendly Soul and Wanda the Wicked has become Evil Dr. Creek. You also get a rules and assembly instructions leaflet with this edition, instead of them being written on the inside of the box lid. There are 1-2 other minor changes as well.
