‘Clue: The Golden Girls’ is a limited edition version of the popular murder mystery board game. Professor Plum, Miss Scarlet and Mr. Green are being replaced by the sitcom’s stars Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose. This version of Clue, however, will not solve a murder, but will instead solve who ate the last slice of cheese cake by deducing which room the crime was committed, and what was left behind.
The board game is modeled after the ladies’ house from the TV show and the possible leave behind items include a purse, a high heeled shoe, a lounge chair, a nightgown and a can of hairspray.
The revival of the board game, and the featuring of the Golden Girls, a show which hasn’t been aired since the early 90s speaks to the nostalgia of an aging generation, while serving as a novelty item.
