Say “thank you for being a suspect” with Golden Girls Clue

The ongoing efforts to brand classic board games like Clue and Monopoly with beloved pop-culture franchises has finally gotten to one that really gets our love of sassy dialogue and sororal friendship: a Golden Girls version of Clue. Rather than revealing that Rose’s dippy exterior was just a cruel facade hiding the cold cunning of a master serial killer, though, the new version drops the usual murder plot in favor of sussing out who ate the last piece of cheesecake (the ultimate GG sin).

Players can choose one of six tokens—the standard four Girls, plus two “mystery men” who may or may not be Blanche’s beau Miles and Dorothy’s ex Stanley—to wander Ms. Zbornak’s palatial Miami home and determine the culprit. Players should be sure to use the house’s numerous secret passages—a largely under-used plot element from the original show—to help themselves move around.

Admittedly, we’re not sure how well this sort of witch hunt fits the Golden Girls milieu. It’s not “Thank you for being a suspect,” after all. But if you’ve got a hankering to mix classic board games with classic sitcoms, you could probably do worse. Meanwhile, if you don’t want to bother with all the dice rolling and accusations, the entire run of Golden Girls is currently on Hulu.
