It looks like Miplet is going to have to dust off his Clue program. Mrs. White has been killed off (white lives don't matter) and replaced with the Asian Dr. Orchid. This story made the CBS Evening News today. Here is some more information: Meet the New Character in the Classic Board Game Clue.

I hope to be the first to play Dr. Orchid in game 12, or wherever we left it. Seriously, I'd like another game.

The question for the poll is what do you think of this change?

Did the Clue people explain that Mrs. White was shot in a traffic stop by the police?

I agree. She sounds guilty just by the name.

BTW, I wanted to say "water hemlock" but ran out of characters.

I wanted to vote for "still too many white people" , in line with modern notions

honestly, what were they thinking?

I'm kind of for playing during cabin fever times in winter, mostly, but actually for me now might not be a bad time for a game

Lots of interest in the water hemlock. Interesting.

Seriously? I mean, seriously?

At least when there's a change of a Monopoly piece, there's actually a piece of artwork involved, and emotional attachment to whatever piece that's being retired.

Political correctness? I know more black people named White than white people, and more white people named Black than black people.

This is nothing more than a gimmick to get free publicity,

But I think the Wiz blew it with poll response #8 "What is a conservatory?"

DT might be independent of WoV, but nearly all of us are Vegas geeks. As such, we all know that the Bellagio Conservatory is on Vegas Must Do lists, therefore we all know what a conservatory is...

I clicked on #8
Yes I am a Vegas Geek
When in town, I always try to check out the display off the lobby at the Bellagio
When with friends, I always say," lets check out the Bellagio display"
I don't use the word "Conservatory"
If on the strip and ask the random pedestrian where the conservatory is, probably get a blank stare and a shrug.
If you say Bellagio Conservatory, then a lot of people know.
If you say Bellagio garden or display, just about everybody knows

I never meant to imply that I don't know what a conservatory is. Seriously, when do you ever hear the word except when preceded by Bellagio?
