Never let it be said that I’m ‘Clue’-less
About the only thing tempting me to come back to the office last week was this little gem waiting for me. I’d ordered it from Amazon before I planned my week off, but it was a nice gift to myself upon my return. Fredo already mentioned the impending changes to the game, and he even recently bought himself a great tee from Threadless–that I passed up ages ago and now that it’s down to $5 they’re out of my size!
My current space isn’t really big enough for a board game night, nor have I got a good table, or chairs or… well anything for hosting more than a few people over to do much more than play video games or watch tv. What can I say, my place is really suited to one person! And the groups that I used to enjoy game nights with would never play such pedestrian games as Clue or Monopoly or Sorry, but I can dream! Plus dig that retro style, this is not a Clue to be played with cheetos and mountain dew–this is one for martinis, bourbon, gin & tonic… hors d’oeuvres and canapés and little things on sticks.
I really wish they could come out with a Nostalgia version of Trouble, but that was Milton Bradley, not Parker Brothers. Still, I miss my Pop-A-Matic Bubble!
I should get that version – it looks very classy. For Christmas some local friends got me cheap-o versions of classic board games (Scrabble, Monopoly, etc.) just to keep around the house, and Clue was included, but I do like this version, too.
