In this edition, the players must search each room of the mansion uncovering clues (cards in each room) that tell them if there is a bat, a cat, or a ghost hiding in the room. The goal is to find all three ghosts. As play proceeds, spiders may force players to be sent to the center stairway or trapdoors may cause the cards in each room to switch.
The artwork in this edition is fabulous. The board has a first person perspective view of the rooms - similar to the US 1963 version. The playing pieces are three dimensionally sculpted which adds a fun element. Most interestingly, the yellow/mustard piece is no longer a human, but a dog! How clever!
