- assembly instructions may as well be left out of the directions as here's a toy with a lot of pieces with instructions in one tiny tiny pictures. In any case, not too difficult to figure out using the pictures on the box
- While the mansion itself is fairly sturdy, the pieces not so much. When the ghost on the top is pushed (to release the traps), need to be careful to push slowly or you'll knock all the pieces off the board.
- Have to dissassemmble the gamne to get it back into the box. This is true of most games but assembly of this one takes a bit longer.
- Very cute 3-D game. Traps work well
- Game is fairly straight forward and quick. Nothing worse than getting into a game with a little one that takes too long :)
- Good for little ones learning counting. They can spin the spinner and count the steps.
- Each push of the ghost releases different traps so the kids never know exactly what will happen next
All in all, very poor quality and craftsmanship and just an annoyance to play. The bother far outweighs the educational and entertainment benefits.
I wasn't going to buy it, waste my money, no way, find something else. So, my wife bought it. Now, we have to put it away because my wife, 2 and 5 year olds, and I are addicted. It's simple: choose your character, spin the dial, get knocked down or caught in the trap and race up the mansion to uncover the ghoul. You must push the ghost down on a spring mechanism that operates the various obstacles. Mindless but fun.
The flaws: the setup instructions were unclear, but it's easy to follow the picture on the box- 5 minutes; there's very little challenge or education to it for young ones except taking your turn and counting, none for adults; our two year old tended to knock the little pieces over- gentle supervision needed; it's compact and the game pieces can fall off if your not watching but it wasn't a big deal for us.
It's a cool, little, 3-D game with lots of silly details, e.g., skeletons, spider webs, lab, cemetary, 'creepy' pictures, etc. We'd turn the lights down, use a flashlight, and do our best "Gang" voices as we play. If you like family inclusive board games and love Scooby, I'd recommend this to you. Need a challenge? Look elsewhere.
In fact, I parroted the most similar complaints listed here to my wife just before we were set to open the box and play with our daughter: there are no assembly instructions, no clear starting point to the game, the infamous snake staircase that always detaches, the ghost on top that when depressed creates an earthquake.
I trust that all those reviews were indeed true experiences. However, I'm happy to say that the manufacturer must have been reading because all that has been fixed: nothing falls apart, there are clear directions where to start, what happens when characters double-up, etc. Try to find a new version of the game - manufacturing date?
Now on to the game itself. It's an extremely simplistic linear, move from tile-to-tile-start-to-finish game (Candyland offers more roadblocks). Kids don't need to read but the spinner requires counting. This isn't a strategic, creative, or educational game. Where it excels is in the cool 3-D design. My daughter (3) likes what it looks like and has it assembled on her dresser but rarely wants to play it. It's a fixture that's hard to dust.
My problem with the game, and the reason why it doesn't have much replay value is that the outcome is always the same. Whoever gets to the top unmasks the ghost but it's always the Creeper character. If they made it more Clue-like where the villain was maybe 1 out of 5 villains and whoever got to the top had to guess then, well, perhaps it would be a more interesting experience.

I bought this game for 4.99 at a local dollar store here in NYC. It lasted about a month. It's cute but mostly cardboard. Why on earth anyone would pay $44 for this?Published 10 days ago by Tanisha Gill
