Alfred Hitchcock presents WHY a Mystery Game


In 1958 Alfred Hitchcock "presented" a Milton Bradley board game named WHY. The premise for the game is that six people were coming home from a masquerade party one night, and took shelter from a storm in a spooky old house. They were never heard from again. Now their ghosts are haunting the house, and you need to find out "WHY." The game is similar to Clue, and if you care about how it's played you can read the instructions here.

The game has fun and cool art work. First here are the murder weapons cards...


Here are the masquerade ghost cards...


Now here's the spooky house game board. It's extra huge so you can use it as desktop wallpaper, or actual wallpaper for your home.


And last, but certainly not least. Possibly the greatest motion picture director ever... Ladies and gentlemen please give it up for Mr. Alfred Hitchcock...

that was damn cool thanks for the pic of the game board...it was really cool. I never heard of this game, but it seems like fun. If any director gets a game let it be Hitchcock, Spielberg, or De Palma. We already know Lucas has more than enough!

Thank for the comment Jay.

I remember seeing a interview with Tarantino where he geeks out while taking about some wacky board games he owns. It seems he could get really, really into "presenting" his own board game.

Wow. This is great! We used to play this game when I was a kid. This was so nostalgiac. Thanks so much for putting up these images. What great fun! T1
