In the original Kill Doctor Lucky, players are would-be murderers, all of whom have reasons to hate (and kill!) Doctor Lucky. On this alternate board, Doctor J. Robert Lucky wishes to sell his haunted house to a pair of unsuspecting newlyweds from across town... but the ghosts of Lucky Mansion have a different plan! They love Doctor Lucky so much, they want him to stay with them forever; unfortunately for the doctor, that means everyone is still trying to kill him!
In Doctor Lucky's Mansion that is Haunted, players are ghosts - so they can move through ceilings, walls, and floors. Any two rooms are connected if they share an edge. Plus, players can "see" from their current room into all the connected rooms, but no farther. The board also contains three secret portals that connect two rooms, represented by duplicate objects (the raven, globe, and portrait). Players may move through these portals, but can't see through them.
