I caught it as well! Its not the first time. Probably the fourth or fifth if I remember correctly. Once Koothrappali talked about being turned into a toad. You would think that Fantasy Flight Games would give them a Fourth Revised set to play with, instead of Fourth by Black Industries.

That would have been difficult - as FFG didn't have the game when those episodes were shot.

The cardboard stand-ups probably show up better than little plastic blobs for the cameras.

If you can read this, then this sentence is false.

Did they get the rules right this time? In the past they've had too many characters on the board and had everybody rolling two dice for movement.

Yup. Sheldon threw two dice to move and somebody's character had been turned into a toad.

Watching the DVD boxed sets as I catch up on this show. They were going counter clockwise in the episode I watched.

Funny, I've been bugged since I started watching about "what game is that?" I used to own Talisman, back in 1st or 2nd ed. I had guessed Talisman, later edition. Finally got around to checking, and sure enough, the photo gallery matches. Hmm, someone should try some frame grabs and posting them with captions of it in use on set.
