Hey guys, newbie here.. I'm sure this question gets asked ALL the time, so I apologize in advance. but I can't for the life of me remember a game I loved playing when I was a kid.

It was in the mid 80's maybe early 90's. And it was somekind of Murder Masion type game. I remember that it wasn't really a mystery solving game, but more a "try not to get killed by ghosts and spooks in the house" The defining characteristic was a headstone type cemetary box that you put a card into each turn and it played a spooky guy's voice who gave you your fate for the turn. "Go to the labratory, Muahahaha!!!" and that type of jazz.

I don't remember much else except that i LOVED it. Anyone know?

I'm also trying to remember this other game with a volcano that would erupt marbles or something that ran down the moutain, knocking your piece off... but we'll save that for later, thanks!!

Nope, that's not it I'm afraid, but thank for the guess!

This game was more about getting out of the house without getting killed than trying to solve anything. I remember it really spooking me out late at night when I was a kid!
