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 green gems, the red plastic cobra fascinated me, the scratchy voice of the mummy sent chills down my spine.

I love Disneyland and the Haunted Mansion is my favorite attraction. The art on this game is stunning, the plastic doom buggy pawns are way cool and the clockwork gear mechanic was way ahead of it's time.

Never really played this game as much as I played with this game. Who doesn't love building the mousetrap and starting that ball rolling...

The first game I bought for myself right after I got sucked into playing Dungeons and Dragons. Spent many hours having solitaire adventures with the prince.

While it had some cool images from the comics I loved, I knew subconsciously this was a lousy batman game. It was the first game that disappointed me enough to start designing my own.

We didn't play it too much in our house, but I always liked the little weapons and the mansion with it's mysterious rooms. It must have made a big impact on me because now I have an entire shelf of deduction games.

My father wasn't much for games, so when he bought us games, they were educational. It wasn't very fun but it did help expose me to a lot of classic authors.

My second self-purchase as a young gamer. Great Bill Willingham art and plays pretty well - like a curse of Dracula lite. It introduced me to chits - I used the blanks from this game to make my own board games.

The game that cemented my love of heavily themed Ameritrash games (yes, I know it's British) that I bought when I worked at a game store while in high school. (sadly had to sell my game collection in college)
