I am going to miss stoic old Colonel Mustard and the mild mannered
Professor Plum. What's this world coming to? Did you hear that
Hasbro has recently updated the Clue game? What about those of
us who loved the classic charm of the colonels and professors
rambling around in grand old house like the one in Gosford Park in
the 1930's? The new version includes younger characters, more
weapons and a new modern mansion. Colonel Mustard is now Jack
Mustard, a former football player (Why does this bring to mind O.J.
Simpson? There's even a guest house--Kato Kaelin's place?) and
Professor Plum is a rich video game designer. Oy. I think I am going
to hang onto my vintage game. Call me old fashioned, but I'm not so
sure I like the idea of this newly made over "tabloid" Clue. I wasn't
too happy when they updated the lovely Morton Salt girl, Betty
Crocker and the Coumbia Pictures lady, either!
