    2. A game of Clue for playing through the darkest episode of The Golden Girls ever.

    Just kidding! In this game you're trying to figure out who ate the last slice of cheesecake — no one gets murdered.

    Promising review: "My best friend gave me this for my birthday because she knows me extremely well. I love that it's not a murder mystery like regular Clue; instead, you're looking for who ate the last piece of cheesecake. It's just such a funny switch! The game adds different obstacles that aren't in the regular Clue, but it made the game more fun." —Beks

    Promising review: "I was extremely satisfied with this purchase!! The snowflake ornament is actually metal instead of plastic or cardboard, and the love potion bottle appears to be part glass — it's much heavier than regular plastic.
