Green Ghost came in a huge box. It was one of those games (like Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots) that if you saw it in a kid's closet, you immediately wanted to play it, but rarely got to because it took a while to set up. Once you got it all together (including supports for the glow-in-the-dark board, boxes (pits) with doors and keys, and all the items to fill in the pits (rubber band "snakes," black feathers). There were also plastic cut-out trees and a haunted house for atmosphere. It was a lot of set up for what was basically a board game. I had to look up a photo to remember what was in the pits that you were supposed to collect (it was a bunch of little green ghosts). Anyway, the game itself wasn't anything memorable (obviously). But the clicking, glow-in-the-dark ghost spinner was pretty great. Very large for a spinner and had a good "feel" to it. Some game spinners got jammed or didn't go very fast, but Green Ghost never let us down.

HELLO, MY NAME IS TIMOTHY. WE HAD THE AUSTRALIAN VERSION OF GREEN GHOST IN 1965 AND MY PARENTS KEPT IT DOWN THE COAST IN A SMALL PLACE CALLED SOUTH DURRAS. WE LIVED IN CANBERRA AND WE COULDN'T WAIT TO GO ON HOLIDAYS TO PLAY THIS FANTASTIC GAME ON RAINY NIGHTS. I AM LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE BOTH A 65 AND A 97 VERSION OF THIS GAME AND THEY ARE IN ORIGINAL CONDITION.

I just found this site while looking for a Krazy Kar for my son. It was cool to find the Green Ghost board game. When ever the subject comes up of favorite things or games from childhood I always ask if anyone remembers Green Ghost. Iím usually disappointed because no one Iíve spoken with can recall this game. It was my favorite game to play, and always best if a new player didnít know what was in the box. I kept the ghost and a few of the pieces long after I had out grown the game. I would set them up as a Halloween display in our house and liked to see the ghost glow after it absorbed the light. I like to decorate for Halloween every year and have often thought, what ever happened to my Green Ghost.

I remember this game! I grew up in northern Illinois. It brings back fond memories of scaring each other while we played this game in the dark. I had the Incredible Edibles too! I had so much fun making these little edible monsters - even thought they didn't taste very good.

I do remember this game. Yes, the ghost would spin and point to one of the pictures on the wheel surrounding it. I donít remember the rules Ė but I do remember it was great excuse to turn out the lights and pull the shade. I do remember reaching into the holes and having to pull up different items.

Just came across this site when I was doing a search on Fuzzy Wuzzy soap... It was interesting to read the different comments on the various toys etc.

I still have my Creepy Crawler set as well as another version Mattel put out called Fright Factory! We used to make the bugs etc all the time and then set up a stand out in front of the house to sell them to the neighbourhood kids so we'd be able to go out to buy more Plasti-Goop.

I also still have the Incredible Edible kit too! It got me thinking though now of a game I had called Green Ghost. Does anyone else remember it? From what I can remember you played this game in the dark . There was a large green glow in the dark ghost that spun on a dial which had many smaller glowing ghosts around it. There was also a glow in the dark game board that stood on some legs in order that the board be up off the table. Supplied boxes fitted underneath the game board directly under each of the 3 rectangular holes located along the center. Can't remember what the total object of the game was but you did go around the board through spinning the ghost and if you landed on certain spots you had to put your hand in one of the holes. Everyone always seemed creeped out if they had to do this, where in reality, what was in the three holes were, black feathers, rubber bands, and I believe some plastic pieces that where supposed to be bones. I remember we had a lot of fun whether it was playing the game or just using the ghosts when making haunted rooms to scare each other.....
