Although those legendary senior citizens from South Florida known as The Golden Girls were recently robbed — ROBBED I tell you — of their shot at getting their very own LEGO (set despite many fan votes), it seems they are getting their very own edition of the classic board game Clue very soon.
Yes, just announced via USAopoly, you will soon be able to play as Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia and try to solve the unspeakable crime of “WHO ate the last piece cheesecake, WHAT they left at the scene of the crime, and WHICH room they did it in.”
Clue has had many media tie-in versions in the past, and this new Golden Girls edition joins an esteemed club of other beloved pop culture properties who have had their own special tie-in editions of the game, like The Simpsons, Harry Potter, Scooby-Doo, and even Disney’s Haunted Mansion. The ’80s NBC classic won’t be the first sitcom to get an edition of Clue all their own however, as it joins shows like The Office and The Big Bang Theory.
Seeing as how the ladies don’t live in a mansion but a suburban home, the rooms where the crime took place are limited to the ladies’ four bedrooms, the kitchen, the garage (did we ever see a garage on the show??) and, of course, the lanai.
Among the “weapons” used in the execution of this crime, the metal tokens in this version of the game include lipstick, hairspray, a purse, a high heeled shoe, a lounge chair and what looks to be a blouse. It’s good to know if they ever get around to making a Sex and the City edition of Clue, they can pretty much use the same pieces.
And as for my bets who committed this crime? My money’s on Sophia on the lanai, and she snuck the cheesecake out in her purse. You can check out images of the new board game down below in our gallery.
Will you be hosting a “Golden Girls Clue Party” at your house when this comes out? Be sure to let us know down below in the comments.
