Manic Monday: Clue
It's Manic Monday and today's word was CLUE. I purposely wrote my post before reading anybody else's post because I SUSPECT that more than 90% of the posts will have the same theme as mine.
How could I write about the word Clue without talking about the best game in the world for a family to play? Even when kids become teenagers, figuring out who got killed in what room with what weapon is still a family favorite. Why? Because it's all about following the clues, listening to others and paying attention. It's not about screwing your family by charging rent for landing on spot (Monopoly) or invading their country (Risk) or even the luck of dice(Yahtzee). Nope, Clue is a "keepa" in my family game cabinet since we never grow tired of Colonel Mustard and his pals in the mansion. We forgot to bring it with us on vacation this year and the kids asked for it when the alternative was Monopoly which as you may have recalled from an earlier post...I beat them when it's my least favorite game. Clue is a kinder, gentler game for the family.
