Voodoo Doll Game

One of the most longed-for games on my wish list was this, the Voodoo Doll Game made by Schaper in the 1960s.

The box alone is fantastic, with great graphics. The voodoo doll offers you handfuls of pins, while a ghoulish witch doctor lurks in the background. The game itself resembles a playset: there's a 3-D jungle hut, a witch doctor figure, and a giant voodoo doll.

The game is really fun to play: you and your opponent take turns putting pins in the voodoo doll. If the witch doctor jumps out of his hut at you, you lose! (I always lose, and it's really quite startling when the little figure comes hurtling out of the hut...)


  1. I had this game as a kid (inherited from a German family friend). I have been looking for one as mine has disappeared over the years.

  2. I'm so sorry yours has disappeared! I'll keep an eye out for another one, and I'll post here if I find one.

    My friend and I played this on Halloween, and as usual, I lost repeatedly and spectacularly...

  3. I have one for sale on eBay right now. Dated 1967, has 3 of the metal pins (missing 1) and 18 pink, 18 ivory pins. Works! It's great fun!
