The Milton Bradley Which Witch board game is a vintage game produced during the 1970s by Milton Bradley.

 

Background

The Which Witch board game was released in 1970, as part of a wave of popular horror-themed board games of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The U.K edition was renamed ‘Haunted House’ and published by Denys Fisher, who later renamed it again as ‘Ghost Castle’.

The game’s design and rules were later adapted again in the 1990s by Milton Bradley around a ‘Real Ghostbusters’-themed game, based on the animated television series.

The Milton Bradley Which Witch board game

The game features a three-dimensional board representing a classic haunted house. Players must roll dice and move their counters through the house whilst trying to avoid various traps and witches. Players also draw cards, some of which can turn them into a mouse (whereupon their counter is swapped for that of a mouse) or back into a child again (if already a mouse).

Others release a ‘whammy ball’ (ball bearing) from the chimney, which can roll onto the board through one of four exits disturbing counters and sending them back in the game.
The winner is the first player to escape from the house.

How much is a Milton Bradley Which Witch board game worth?

As with many other vintage horror-themed games, Which Witch is highly sought after by collectors (due in part to its memorable three-dimensional board).

Examples with their components intact can sell for up to $100 on auction sites such as eBay, with good to very-fine condition copies priced at around $50 - $70.
