Nothing is Forever---

Back in 1949---(not many of us can say that--heh, heh, heh) the board Game "Clue" was the big Xmas seller. Names Like Miss Scarlet, Prof. Plum, Col. Mustard became popular verbal icons. I can't imagine very many adults today in the western world anyway, that haven't played the board game "Clue".
Well Nothing lasts forever, even the Pyramids of Egypt are slowly eroding away, even me "old dude" is starting to show some wear and tear----(only his barber knows for sure). Well the popular board game has come under the "renovate/update" gun. Say Goodbye to Miss Scarlet, Prof. Plum etc, etc, etc---(sigh).
IF your fear is you might date yourself, then its imperative that you go out and buy the current version of the game.----see the new "Mansion, with its spa, (say good bye to the ballroom), and check out the new "weapons"-------.(LOL) only the names have been changed to protect the innocent---heh, heh, heh---


  1. I had no idea Clue came into being in 1949...but then did I.

  2. Oh no!
    Our daughter confiscated our original family game.
    Guess I will go out and buy the old version while I still can.
    Thanks for the heads up on that Gary.

    Bear((( )))

  3. hmmm, not sure the old version is gonna become a classic item worth anything to collectors, ---like hello they sold millions of sets------I mean like whats an Original "Hula hoop" worth???

  4. That makes me sorta blue. If it ain't broke...don't fix it.

  5. I agreee with Leslie...but you gotta do something to keep the younger generations happy. Not sure if Bear wanted it as a collector's item or just wanted a version they were familiar with. I may just have to go out and buy one too. Because believe it or kids (21 & 23) still like playing board games even if dear old "stepdad" kicks their butt every time. We even still play Candyland.


Speak up, don't be a nebish---your opinions do count.
