Haha, you decided “read more”…or you were already looking at the whole article.
The Golden Girls: Anyway You Slice It Game
“Anyway You Slice It” is a Golden Girls Trivia Game, created and distributed by Cardinal, and sold at Target for $14.99.
I spotted this a few weeks ago during a normal shopping trip, and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to give it the old Retroist try!
Gameplay and Game Structure
Each player receives a pie plate/cheesecake dish, along with a matching player token. A correct answer awards one cheesecake slice to the player answering correctly (a correct answer means matching the the prompt on the card to the Golden Girl it pertains to), as well as the person answering the question (can’t figure out that logic). Answer incorrectly, and the person asking the question gets a slice…but not you, you incorrect answer giver.
In order to win, you must collect eight slices of cheesecake.
Sounds easy, right?
Why don’t we find out?
Let’s Play Anyway You Slice It!
I made a video of the gameplay. A little awkward and difficult with only one person playing, but I made it work.
It was weird and awkward, but I made it work!

As I said, I filmed the entire gameplay…only to have to start over again when I realized I didn’t demonstrate it correctly. Oops!
But in all, “Anyway you Slice It” is definitely a fun game! In a small group, this could easily be an enjoyable game, but is best played by a group with some familiarity with the program and the characters. The “Who Wore It?” questions were very obvious, as were the quotes (see below and you’ll understand).
If anything, this is a great Golden Girls collectible in the vein of the Monopoly and Clue-themed games (I don’t own either game). Add in a Trivial Pursuit game (get on this already!), and I’m sold!
Well…shutup and take my money.
When did this happen?!
And Before We Go…
I think this was my favorite card of the ones I went through…
This was my second favorite…
Hey, if anything, it helps you brush up on your quotes for your Golden Girls reenactment.
No, that’s not a thing I do.
