Get a Clue.

What was your favorite board game growing up?

Take a guess as to what mine was... I'll even give you a clue:

Get it?? No but seriously the picture is actually a clue... because my favorite board game of all time is CLUE (Parker Brothers' version). I loved playing this game so much I use to want to be a detective, but then I discovered I disliked blood so there went that dream.

In any case, I was at Restoration Hardware a couple of weeks back, not by intention but more because it was the quickest way out of the mall. As I was walking to the exit, a huge wooden box with the words "Clue" caught my eye. At that moment I fell in love with the game all over again. So I waited a week or two, happened to be walking through Restoration Hardware again and bought the game for 40% off. It was awesome. I've played it twice now, but there were only two of us so it wasn't as fun. If anyone wants to play, let me know!

Also, I think my picture that just zooms in on the word "Clue" is much better than my attempt to take a picture of the wooden box...thoughts?


  1. this clue box looks different. bring it home. i want to play. luvya

  2. It should be noted that I bought a version that mimicked the look of the game in the 60s. Apparenlty the updated clue (as of April 2008)says goodbye to Colonel Mustard and Professor Plum.. JERKS.

  3. Can I be the guy with the wacky mustache? I used to like Miss Scarlet until I discovered she was a floozie.

  4. I too use to love playing clue as a kid! Candyland was a favorite when i was really young...-Susheela
