I remember playing Clue as a kid and liking it a lot. However, unless I had a friend over (a matter of someone driving many miles to pick up / deliver) I had no one to play with, my parents not being interested, my brother much older and not liking "games".

I was part of a small group of kids (all boys, perhaps not so oddly for the time--early 1960s) who were Game of Life addicts. We played probably 2 or 3 times a week.

It is already in the National Toy Hall of Fame, so I don't have to start a write-in campaign for it.
