A Golden Girls Version of Clue Is Happening
We can’t wait for this.
Picture it: Your Living Room, 2017. You are hosting your friends and family for weekly game night. What board game will you choose? An old standby like Monopoly or Taboo—or maybe something a little different? Soon you’ll be able to play Clue: The Golden Girls.
Game retailer USAopoly is releasing a new version of the classic Clue game for fans of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia. Instead of solving a murder, players will try to figure out “who ate the last piece of cheesecake, what they left at the scene of the crime, and which room they did it in.”

The illustrated game board is an exact replica of the foursome’s house in Miami, Florida. You’ll recognize all the rooms from the series, including the famous lanai, the kitchen (which was home to many table chats), and the living room with its rattan seating set and coffee table.
The game includes six “suspect personality cards,” which feature the four ladies and two faceless men—we can only assume that the mystery men are one of the many suitors during the show’s run or love interests from the past. Additionally, there are six metal tokens (a hairspray can, robe, handbag, lipstick, reclining chair, and a high heel), plus rumor cards with six suspects, six weapons, and nine locations.
The game is suitable for ages 8 and up, and can accommodate two to six players. It will retail for $39.95 and will be sold in the United States and Canada. There’s no set date for the launch of the board game, but the USAopoly site says it’s coming soon. In the meantime, you can stream the whole series on Hulu and stock up on cheesecake.
