Several years ago a new investment group bought the original molds and the Marx name from the bankruptcy holders and restarted the Marx company. Along with the classic Marx toys they have also bought the molds and rights to a few other lost classics and have begun to bring them back. So after decades in the dark the glowing Green Ghost
is back. If your looking for a copy of the Green Ghost game by Marx you can now get them directly from Marx.

The phone # is: 1-800-808-MARX
they are 29.95 + shipping.

Not BEING.

WAS.

The reprint was in 1997. They may still have stock, I'm not sure.

Hmmm....and it's not Valley games that's reprinting it? Interesting...I was under the impression that they had the market cornered.

Actually, the website posted says "no longer available from them". The minimalistic MARX website does not list it. I haven't called, though, so if you're really interested you might check to make sure.

What's this? Why, it's the Hiller Flying Platform! It flew in 1955.

About three years ago I acquired the Marx re-issue of Green Ghost. It was terribly produced. Pieces were missing and one major manufacturing flaw made the game unplayable, namely, the spinner had absolutely no glowing parts whatever. I contacted Marx to ask about this and they basically said, "well, that's the best we can do."

The Marx "reissue" was total junk. Best to get the original Transogram version on Ebay.

As a player of the orginal and an owner of the reprint this could not be nore true. However there were stickers to put on the spinner to make it glow but the original is far better

All I can say is why bother reprinting this thing? I had it when I was a kid and played it exactly ONCE-- Worst Gameplay Ever! What you do during the game is irrelevant to who wins, which is determined by a spin once everyone makes it through the course. Might as well roll some dice and high roller wins. Absolutely no skill, and the luck that contributes to the win is all concentrated in one spin at the end! This thing was all gimmick and nothing else. I felt totally ripped of by the game, and consider it the absolute quintessential lame play mechanics. The game is a total joke.

Well, yeah, if you actually use it to PLAY THE GAME... but I see this as more like a Mousetrap kind of thing--setting the thing up and then making up adventures to play out on it was one of the most fun memories of my childhood...

D'oh, I thought somebody might actually be reprinting this again and doing it right this time. I wanted to pick up a copy for my collection purely for the nostalgia value. The Marx reprint gets a bad wrap up and the original is way expensive. I wish I still had my Ideal Australia copy from my childhood.
