I think Clue could make for a cool hour long mystery game show or perhaps a single game for a whole season.

Tim Curry would have to host.

"Don't break the Ice" could be fun. The guy in the center could be a different douchebag celebrity each week... Contestants will win by not causing the guy to fall but because the person in the center is a tool, contestants will struggling with trying to win or the urge to dunk the person.

How many people would give up prize money to drop Ann Coultier or Johnny Fairplay into a tank of freezing water?

For those unfamiliar with the game:
Bolotomi are large essentially immobile creatures who live on an alien beach, and come to enjoy smashing tiny Snits when the latter creatures charge up out of the sea to reproduce. The Snits decide to seek revenge, and begin attacking the Bolotomi from within. Snit's Revenge depicts the ensuing internal battle, with one player controlling the invading tribe of Snits, the other manning the target Bolotomus's bodily defences.

Yes, god.

Also, while not a board game, a YDKJ tv show hosted by, hell anyone, would be great

Actually, I think Chutes and Ladders could make for a fantastic game show. Contestants are presented with moral dillemas that a studio audience votes on, and they have to try to pick the option that the majority of the studio audience picks. If they choose correctly, a ladder drops down bringing them closer to the grand prize, while if they choose incorrectly, they're dropped down a trap door back to a lower level. Big set, pompous host(preferably John O'Hurley), it could be Fear Factor meets The Power of Ten.

I still remember this game fondly from when I was about 4, but with a little modernizing, it could work. Also, whoever suggested Clue was fucking brilliant.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_War_(card_game)



The game is a multiplayer game, with each player having a small cardboard playmat upon which cards are placed and revealed. It is intended to be played by 3 or more players, but can also be played with only 2.

At the start of a game, each player is dealt a number of "population cards," ranging in denomination from 1 million to 25 million people. Players must protect their population, as the total loss of population leads to player elimination. They are then dealt a number of cards, which may be of the following types:

* Secrets which usually steal or reduce another player's population.
* Propaganda which steal another player's population, but have no effect once war has started.
* Missiles which stay in play ready to hold a warhead.
* Warheads which are fitted to a missile, or discarded if there is no available missile for them.

Initially, each player takes turns to play secrets. Once all players have played all secrets and replaced cards from the deck they can announce 'no secrets' and place two cards face down. Players then take turns during which they will play a third face down card, and then reveal the oldest face down card (first in, first out) and resolve it. Secrets and propaganda cards are resolved immediately upon being exposed, while missile launches take more than one turn to properly setup.

Once players have a warhead fitted to a missile (by revealing a missile on one turn, and revealing a warhead on a subsequent turn), they may launch an attack. A successful attack reduces the target player's population; when a player's population reaches zero, they may launch an immediate retaliatory attack (called "final retaliation") but are then out of play. Often, this strike will end another player's game, leading to a final strike on a third party, and so on. Hence, in some cases, many players can be removed at once. If a player is knocked out with a propaganda card, no retaliation is allowed.

The object of the game is to be the sole player still in play after all attacks are resolved. More often, retaliatory strikes remove all players. If all players are eliminated from play, then there is no winner. Alternately, a variant scoring system determines the winner via a point system -- 1 point for a knock out, 2 points for a propaganda knock out, 3 points for a retaliation knock out, a variable number of points for position depending on number of players, and finally 2 points for surviving (with the survivor not necessarily being the points winner).

HOSTED BY: Walter Koenig (just so we can hear NUCLEAR WESSELS over and over each week)

And no one refers to the fact that it is Hitler, or that he is a dog.
