Sophia Petrillo, in the kitchen, with the knife…cutting the cheesecake.
I promise, this is not Golden Girls fan fiction!
Stay Golden…In the Library!
While reading some posts on Facebook yesterday, I came across a link for a Babble article about a Golden Girls-themed version of clue. Now, I’ve seen how many different incarnations of Monopoly there are out there, but this is totally different!
It all starts with this epic box art…
This box! It is an immediate admission of guilt for Sophia.
The mystery involves consumed cheesecake (obviously!), and the weapon of choice is one of these items…
With the exception of Sophia’s purse, all of it came from Blanche’s room. All of it!
Thank You For Being a Friend…Mystery Man With the Rose!
There are six possible whodunits.
We’ve got all the usual suspects – Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, Sophia, Mystery Man with Rose, Mystery Man with Stanley Zbornak’s monkey, Fifi…
Stanley Zbornak’s monkey for the win, people!
The mystery men are obviously Miles and Stanley in black masks. Just sayin’.
Come, Sit on the Lanai…
And this game board. Look at the house’s layout! You’ll want to play regular Clue on this board!
Did the mansion in Clue have a Lanai? I think not!
Back in St. Olaf (Which is Code for the Internetz)…
According to USAopoly.com, the game will retail for $39.95, and is available for purchase in the United States and Canada. Players eight and up can participate, but will they truly appreciate it? I’m not sure, but the big kids sure will!
There’s no release information yet (this information only set a fire online yesterday!), but rest assured, the Retroist team will know about it as soon as it is a physical thing.
“Picture it, game night!”
And is it just me, or does Sophia look a little like Mrs. Doubtfire?
It actually isn’t just me, but it was pointed out to me. Perhaps you see it too?
Not since Golden Girls Funko Pops (also: this Funko follow-up over on Allison’s Written Words) and Legos have we been this excited about The Golden Girls since…we watched it last night. For the millionth time. Because we love it!
Yeah, that’s it.
