Monster Games

Here's some mostly spooky games from the 1972 Sears Wish Book. Anyone have any of these games? I only have a Ouija Board and a newer version of Clue.

We had Stay Alive, Ouija Board and a newer version of Clue when I was a teen. We used to take the marbles out of Stay Alive and play with them.

Had a few.
Voice of the Mummy was great.
Miss that one a lot.
Wonky record player and all.

We had a newer Clue and a Ouija board. I remember Stay Alive, not sure if we had it or someone else. A couple of the others ring a bell, but nothing I can remember.

To this day I'm still perplexed that Ouija boards were packaged like board games and sold to kids. Sure, I know that's largely the target audience, but it's just weird...

I had the Barnabas Collins, Green Ghost those both glowed in the dark. I also had Clue and Super Spy.
All cool games I wished I still had them.

I had WHICH WITCH. I am an only kid but I enjoyed setting it up and playing it, even by myself. It was a lot like MOUSETRAP in that respect.

I had a version of Clue. But I recall the Ouija Boards making the rounds in my neighbourhood.

Reading this post, I'm reminded of just how much the Sears Wishbook has deteriorated over the years. :/

Which Witch was by far my favorite game as a child, and I still have a copy just in case I get the itch. It delivers!

(Also: Though I didn't have the Barnabas Collins game as a kid, I was gifted one a few years back.)
