Huge Clue Board for sale with "Real Weapons"!?

Post by Murder by Death » Thu Jun 03, 2010 12:37 pm

Thought this auction had a really funny listing title:

Classic Clue 1996: Huge Board REAL WEAPONS - 100%

Can you imagine? It makes it sound like the board is at least big enough that the largest of the real weapons would fit within each room. LOL

Brings up an interesting idea for an evening of gameplay ... who has actually played with real weapons (and if so, was the revolver loaded)? :wink:

But seriously about this auction, what makes the buyer think the game board is "huge"? The long box? But then why does the description say it is a "four section" game board? It actually appears to be the '92 board and I don't believe it was ever sold in a quad format.

The photograph doesn't display anything other than the board game itself, so I'm skeptical about the REAL WEAPON heading.

1) It's 1992, not 1996

2) There is nothing giant about that board

3) There is nothing real about little metal tokens that are shaped like Candlesticks, Pipes, etc.

So, is it ment to be big enough for people to walk on?

I would have laughed so hard if they were real weapons. :arrow:
