I am gonna drive myself nuts because I can not remember the name of a board game from my childhood. It would have been between 1993–1999.

The box was shaped like a creepy castle or house and there was a laughing skull piece (like it's eyes glowed and it had this evil laugh). All your player pieces were tiny brightly colored skulls and the family of the house was all these monsters (granny mummy, Lord Skull?, a little girl vampire, I think a cousin or uncle was a werewolf) I think there was a rubber spider too. You had to go through the house (which may have been the box) and there was a goop soup monster. It Actually came with a book explaining how the soup monster was made.

It had the same humor of The Addams Family or The Munsters but was like a niche or indy game.

Maybe Which Witch? / Ghost Castle / Haunted House? The player pieces aren't skulls but it does have a glowing skull that rolled down some stairs and knocked your piece over. And it has a set of cards with characters on them.

    Can you provide more information about this game and why you think it is a match? – Joe W May 3 '18 at 15:26
  • @JoeW She's right though - loathe to add my own answer when this is correct boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/167495/creepy-towers – Bob Tway May 3 '18 at 19:30
  • @MattThrower That wasn't a comment on the answer being right or wrong but the fact that the answer just contained the name of a game with no link or other information explaining why it is thought to be the correct game, – Joe W May 3 '18 at 19:32

    @MattThrower Do what you feel is best as this is at best a poor answer when it was posted since it just included a name and was later edited to at least include a link. – Joe W May 3 '18 at 19:54

    @MattThrower - Based on the general practices on english.SE: If you came up with the answer yourself, but then found that someone else had posted it but poorly explained/referenced it, then please go ahead and post your own good quality answer (especially if the first answerer has ignored requests to edit in explanation/research). If you didn't know the correct answer until you saw this one, please edit the research into this one. – AndyT May 4 '18 at 9:42
