Wolfman Mystery game on Ebay
Wolfman Mystery Game The Wolfman Mystery Game was released by Hasbro in 1963.

The game itself is a simple one where players move their Wolfman playing pieces along a track until they reach the end. Along the way they land on special spaces that can provide encounters with various dangers such as snakes, a scorpion, a crocodile, etc. Apparently the object of the game is to get the wolfman home safely through a swamp.

The game comes with a playing board, 4 Wolfman playing pieces with stands, and 2 spinners.

Like the other monster games that Hasbro released during this time (the Frankenstein Mystery Game, etc.), this one seems to have been designed in rather a hurry, and lacks quite a bit in the way of imagination or creativity. Apparently Hasbro wanted to quickly jump on the Monster Craze of the early 1960's and released games devoted to the most popular monsters a little too quickly.
