Hello,

I am trying to track down a board game but I can't even remember its name.

The aim of the game was to reach the end of the board and to do this, clues to a subject were slowly revealed e.g. A Hollywood Actor. Clue 1. He was born in 1967, Clue 2. He was in the films etc...

The sooner you identified the subject, the more places you could move - so if you got it after one clue, you could move 5 spaces but if you got it after two clues, four spaces and so on. I think the box was pink or purple.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Thanks!

V

Welcome to BGG!

Is this an older game?

Did you play it in the 1970s? The 1980s? The 1990s? Recently?

Hi Vicky,

Have you tried flicking through the TRIVIA section of games?

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgamecategory/1027

There are a lot of pages, but if you can remember the first letter of the game name you should be able to nail it pretty quickly.

Phil.

On the off-change that the memory of the game might be slightly different to reality, any chance it was PSI?
(probably not - just thought it worth mentioning as it matches some of the gameplay elements you listed)

Was the board hideous? It sounds like Clever Endeavor, which I found at a thrift store for $1 and bought to gaffle the piecepack-like pawns.

...and apparently NO-ONE on BGG owns it... could be tough tracking a copy down, Vicky
