Hey there guys, I just joined up today. Okay, Im trying to figure out the name of a game that was similar to Which Witch, but was much newer than the 70's. It had all these traps that you set, like the staircase that would knock the pawns down, but the board was very similar to that of Which Witch. I believe it would have been out in the mid-80's or so. It is definitely not 1313 Dead End Drive, because that only has one large room area, this had more than one. Any help would be appreciated.

Greg,

I think you may be looking for this:



The Real Ghostbusters

I have this game and it plays the exact same as Which Witch. . .

Wow...appreciate the fast reply. Funny, I don't remember it being Ghostbuster-themed, but I do remember the black staircase and the little skull thing you drop inside it. Guess my memory is failing at 32 years of age Thanks for the quick reply...you rock!

This is odd. I had a game when I was a kid that used that staircase and dropping skull, but the board was different, and it was not Ghostbusaters-themes. The skull could go a few different ways. Either down the stairs, knocking out whoever was on the stairs, or knocking down an axe, or fall into a basket, making a skeleton flip out and kick away whoever was standing on a certain spot. Or a fourth way, can't remember right now.

This was probably late 80s-early 90s. Possibly it was named "Spökslottet" ("Ghost Castle"), but I can't remember right now.

Yeah, I've got Ghost Castle and it sounds like it's what you were thinking of. It's weird seeing that Ghostbusters game cos it looks like it's got the exact same plastic staircase just different cardboard walls.
