Remember the board game Clue?
We used to love playing it.
In all the pre-Christmas crafty gift making ideas
I saw where someone had made a personalized version of Yahtzee
for little folks using pictures on the dice instead of dots.
This gave me the idea to make a clue game for my grandson.
in place of Miss Scarlet and Professor Plum and the rest of that motley crew.
Instead of the Conservatory and the Library, I used rooms from my house.
And since there was no murder involved in this family friendly game,
I replace the weapons with random objects that a little boy could relate to.
We play it as more of a virtual Hide-n-Seek game--
guessing Who is Where with What.
Some of the combinations make for some good laughs:
Alan on the Stairs with a Bicycle
Daddy in the Bathroom with a Book
Mimi in the Kitchen with a Goldfish
We also play it sans the game board--that was always the tedious part to me anyway,
having to navigate to a particular room to make a guess.
I made a page of scorecards to duplicate.
In case it really caught on, I laminated the playing cards to protect them
--and I'm glad I did. This little game saw a lot of action over the holidays!
Truth be told, the adults liked it as much as my grandson did!
