One of those childhood 'stand out' memories. I got this game on Christmas, and was obsessed with it for weeks. I couldn't wait to show it to friends or when cousins ah..victims visited. Game-play is as basic as it gets, but for children, it's a blast. The glowing board, and ghost spinner were worth the price of admission. Eventually I added rubber bugs from my Camp Grenada game to the Green Ghost 'pits'; that way, there was more to feel around in those coffins, besides bat feathers and bones.

Green Ghost is now one of the most sought after vintage games on Ebay, along with Fireball Island and King Oil.

This was a favorite when I was a kid. I got the reissue for my kids, and we've played it a few times. Good for the kids, but we spend a lot of time fixing things as they topple over.

As an owner of BOTH the original Transogram version and the remake by Marx... I thought that Marx had done a decent job, until I heard that certain parts didn't even glow in the dark?? This was a game that I remembered having when I was very young... thought it was the coolest thing EVER!! As an adult... it's certainly not as impressive, but, still has some very cool "Halloween" themed parts!! Young children will definitely get a kick out of this game!! It's great thinking up different "icky" things to put into the pit traps!!

One of my favorite games, and the game that got me into collecting after my original 1960's, Australian made game was given away in the early 70's; and I had deeply missed it since. Looked for it over the decades whenever I found myself in a toy store and missed the 1997 version (maybe it wasn't brought out here, anyway I think I would have been disappointed; as the original is best). Got it on eBay in excellent condition (box is near mint) and all the memories came flooding back; of playing it in the dark (it never glowed bright or long enough), enjoying the graphics and the 3D pieces. Long missed and now I get to enjoy it again with my young daughter, this time under a "Black Light" which makes playing it easier and fun. (My Brother and I played it recently in complete darkness squinting at it with our respectively, 56 and 47 year old eyes; we did it just to prove to ourselves that you could properly complete the game in one "glowing" session, but I think mostly to relive the event from our youth). Game play is simplistic with the finale of finding "Kelly" pointless and an anti-climax, except for the young who really want to know which is "Kelly".

This game has a great look to it. It's built for small hands, so forget playing it as an adult male, and the stuff in the pits is extra lame (no, rubber bands do not feel at all like snakes), but it's so darn iconic I had to have it. I actually have both original versions. Drag it out around Halloween, and then back in the game room it goes.

A game I had as a kid, but no longer. I wish I did - not because it was a very good game, but because the original version goes for quite a bit on Ebay. The game's big gimmick was that it glowed in the dark. Definitely a kid's game.

I used to love this one as a kid. Playing games in the dark as a kid is something special, and so this game gets some props for being an "in the dark" game. The only thing better than this one was...pillow fights in the dark. Ouch.

I loved the pieces to the game more than the game itself. Glow in the dark ghosts and skeletons and stuff! Wooooo!

Ah a blast from the past! Really just a "spin & move" game, but for youngsters diving into the creepy boxes for ghosts is a great laugh. Especially when its dark, late at night, the board's glowing and you've just been telling ghost stories. The rating guidelines say I should give it a 3 ("I'll never play it again"), but it deserves more for the right age group.

Loved this as a kid because I could play in the dark with girls!

Kind of scary for a six year old, but now it would just be standard glow-in-the-dark roll & move fare.

Had a copy as a kid, and had fun with it - turn out the lights and play! Don't think anyone could convince me to play as an adult. Very typical of the '60s/ '70s family type games. So many better games nowadays.

I had fond memories of this game...picked it up an eBay and gave it a go. I should have preserved those memories!!! There is really no game here - a few decent bits, but that's about it.

Another Ameritrash classic old style roll and move game! The glow in the dark effect lasts for almost a minute...you have to keep charging the board and components with a black light! Still it can be fun when your in the right mood!

Played one ridiculously long game until 2am one time with my nephews. They both can't stop talking about it and request it again and again. Go figure!

Another garage sale or flea market game. Remember playing this as a young boy and thrilled by the glow in the dark pieces and design of the board.
