Board Game Blasphemy

New replaces old. From MSNBC:

Toy maker Hasbro Inc. has updated its classic Clue game for today’s tabloid culture to include younger characters, more weapons, and new rooms, including a spa and guest house.

The six characters’ last names remain the same, but their first names and bios have been updated. For example, Miss Scarlet is now Kasandra Scarlet, a famous actress often featured in tabloids. And Mr. Green is now Jacob Green, an African-American “with all the ins.”

Colonel Mustard is now Jack Mustard, a former football player. The professor? Now Victor Plum, a billionaire video game designer.

The saddest part is that this isn’t a special edition – it’s a replacement of the original Clue board game that we’ve all grown up with.
