Short form Clue/do History on YouTube

Post by alwaysPeacock » Fri Jun 19, 2020 4:04 pm

From Deseret News

Most enjoyable to see Pratt’s daughter, Marcia Lewis, interviewed, as well as Rob Daviau, the game designer we can apparently thank for that woefully misguided “Discover the Secrets” rebranding.

Nothing new in this for people like us, but a nicely produced little piece. I especially appreciated the host drawing parallels between the early patent designs & the kinds of sketches readers would find in Agatha Christie novels. Almost makes you rethink the original Parker Brothers marketing of the game as a “Sherlock Holmes” experience — then again it’s possible Holmes was more a household name in the US than Christie at the time.

It’s nice to see photos of Pratt with Marcia, and the doodles they did for the characters are cute. Nice find Peacock!
