Video killed the board game

I’ve heard of reruns, but this is ridiculous. The classic board game Clue is back with an all-new cast of suspicious characters: The Simpsons. First it’s Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore in Charlie’s Angels, now this. Col. Mustard gets the boot as Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Homer and Marge take over the game that for decades has let players be detectives. Simpsons fans might have a ball with this newly evolved Clue, but trying to figure out who killed Mr. Burns with a poison jelly donut in the nuclear plant just doesn’t seem like a true challenge. The cast also includes Krusty the Clown, Waylon Smithers and Police Chief Wiggums, who leads the hunt through the streets of Springfield to find the true killer. Get the game at and other retail stores, then get a few friends together to try to figure out where your 30 bucks went.
