Which haunted house would you most want to spend the night playing a miniature wargame in?

Has to be a real house, not fiction. Not an amusement ride. Really haunted.

Depends on what you mean by the phrase "haunted" and it also depends on what is being played.

Does home count?, I watched a ghost walk right past our bed till it got to the window and then vanished.

I've only seen it the once, thank goodness.

The Tower of London.

Is the Tower of London a house?

To jump back in, you would have to be a little more specific.
What do you mean by "Haunted"? A place that has a well know history of sightings, paranormal activity, or just a lot of legend? (Winchester)
Or are we talking about stuff that "supposedly happened", but nothing has been actually recorded or verified since the first reports? (Amityville).
Or are we talking houses that were supposedly haunted but no longer exist?

From what it appears, there seems to be more hauntings of more public places, (Schools, Hospitals, Sanitariums, etc), than houses, although this has never been verified.
If we are talking "a haunted house", then the one that my wonderful wife, (Gawd bless her!), and I live in does indeed qualify and we do indeed play in it. I've had visitors "see" people walking up and down the staircase, (a major focal point for things going on in this house). We game quite a bit and we have never been bothered by our "guests".

People lived in the Tower of London before it became a prison. It's a big house, but house nonetheless.

If you want a much more traditional 'house' then I vote for this one…

People still live in the Tower of London, so it's still a house. Of sorts.

Real haunted houses though? Load of old codswallop…

I guess this: link

It really *is* a house as well as a home, and it's as "really" haunted as any other "haunted" house really is. It'd probably be a hoot to play Betrayal at the House on the Hill in it on a suitably stormy night.

However, as with any gaming night, it's the company, not the digs that count!

I was going to suggest Murphys house but he beat me to it…
