Starting with the ghost. I know that Erick likes what I've done before so I'm sticking with the green ghosts.

They got a bit of filler as the casting had some holes next a trim of the flash lines, then a very quick black primer to make sure the paint stays on them.



I've glues them all to 2p pieces as I like the extra weight this gives the figures.



First pass with dark green


Two layers of high lights, first adding blue green then adding pure white


Final pure white highlight on the edges, only a light pass as I don;t really want white just a glow.


If you feel like zooming in you can see the three colours I used in the background.

Add some liquid gold on the headseals, this stuff can be tricky. You must use a alcohol to clean or dilute them as it will clot badly if it is mixed with water. If you contaminate the brush the same will happen, I ruined one mini by licking the brush to a point* before using this stuff, yup that small amount water will cause a problem


I used an oil wash once the gold was dry to add depth. Next task will be to paint the corsets and add some details.


*Licking brushes should only be done by special trained professionals or under the supervision of a responsible adult

Very tempting 1965 version. At Value Village for $9.99. But it was missing 3 ghosts, plus two numbers (and all the dividers) for the spinner. There doesn't seem to be much chance of snagging the parts, and I don't need another "make it whole" project -- especially one with so giant a box.

But it sure looked cool and I was disappointed to leave it behind.

As a very young child (3-4?) I have very vivid memories of playing Green Ghost (in the dark of course) and being mesmerized by that glowing phosphorescent board.

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...for years. Go figure!

I've never seen or even heard of this game, but based on the number available on eBay, they must be around. If I ever see one I'm gonna buy it!

*More users on BGG wanting than trading.

In the last 90 days:
1 @ $20
12 @ $30-$50
15 @ $50-$100
21 @ $100-$156
1 @ $660!!! (Are you kidding me?)

The $660 one was unopened.

Also, someone might want to GM the 5 users that are trading this and tell them to put the darn thing on eBay!

Now, I know we had this growing up - although I have no idea when it disappeared (no pun intended). I know we never played it after our move when I was 9, so I presume it was a casualty of that move.

I would love to have played this with my kids around Halloween, as I remember thinking it was a fun spooky type game.

But a can't afford to drop a couple of C notes on it on Ebay, so it will have to remain just a ghost from my past...a skeleton in the closet of my mind as it were.

My memories of this game are valuable for me, because this was one of the games my Father would play with me and my sister with great flair. He would speak in a tone that gave us a sense of foreboding and he would fill the trap doors in the game with all sorts of creepy feeling things that simply made this game an adventure.
I had wished I was able to give my own children a similarly exciting experience with a game such as I had with this. How many board games can we play in the dark? Sadly, I do not have it anymore, so no recent pictures.

Marketed as the first glow-in-the-dark game, there were at least three versions of the board. One was green with red spaces, another white with red spaces and the third was white with brown spaces. The glowing does not work as well as showed on the television commercials, which, if you watched carefully, were filmed using black light. (If you wish to play the game, you may like to use a black light yourself.)

Past the appearance, the game itself is pretty much the usual roll-and-move with a few twists. The board is up on stilts and the "path" has holes in it so that movers may fall through and thereby gain the privilege of opening one of the three pits (cardboard boxes containing ghoulish feeling items) and retrieving one of the precious small green ghosts. Players are not ensuring victory, but simply improving their chances in the end game which is decided by the giant green ghost spinner.

Originally published by Transogram; revived 1997 by Marx Toys.

This one got pulled out around every Hallowe'en, and was memorable as my brother and I could often get the whole family, all six of us, to play in total darkness, with just the glow of the pieces to see by. Living in a house with a finished basement (unusual, in much of CA) made the "lights out" easy to accomplish.

A different type of Ghost. I picked up a set of 1967 Spaaaaaaaaace Ghooooooooost puzzles from my local GW for $1.99. I absolutely loved Space Ghost when I was a kid. It was like stepping back in time...

This one has been around since 1965. As kids we added to the alliterative fashion of the name and called it the "Green Ghost Game" - as the box states, but the BGG entry does not. Occasionally someone would throw in a "groovy!" - but that faded as we moved into the 80s and "gnarly", while technically starting with a "g" didn't work quite right.

This isn't really a thrift store find, but still needed to be shared! My girlfriend and I checked out a post on Craigslist that stated there was a pile of toys by the side of the road that were free for the taking. we couldn't believe that this was sitting there on top of the first pile! Then we were further shocked that it is about 97% complete! All it's missing are the snakes, bones, and pit boxes (of course!); and two of the little ghost that go around the spinner. The box is kind of ragged, and looks like there may be some water damage to it, but the game board and the pieces are in terrific condition! It even had the original feathers and the instructions!! We still get excited that we found this gem for FREE!!!! If anyone out there has any of the pieces that I mentioned we're missing, and would want to part with them, PLEASE let me know!!!
