Gamer Week Day 2 - Candyland


Hi everyone, Katie here.

Welcome back to Gamer Week.  We're celebrating Glogirly's favorite games from her youth all week.  Today's game is Candyland!  According to Glogirly, just about EVERY kid in America grew up on Candyland. It was her very first game.  Candyland was responsible for igniting her hunger for play.  And for gumdrops.


Personally I think the whole game could benefit from a little catnip-makeover. 


I'd MUCH rather frolic in the catnip forest than climb the gumdrop mountains.


And don't you think Gingy looks better with cat ears?  


GLOGIRLY!!! Not the ears!!!


Oh, the risks of playing with sweet treats.

  7. I think some weapons would make it better--maybe we could borrow some from Clue? That was one of the Human's faves!

  9. This ignorant Canuck, born in Scotland, never played Candyland. I know!! It horrifies all sorts of people.

    But Katie.. I gotta say.. I like your gingerbread man the best. Pixar should hire you as their creative consultant.

    You could get paid in dates with Puss or something.

  15. Mommy remembers playing that but she agrees with you about the make over. Her favorite game was Monopoly.

  16. We don't have "Candyland" in England, but it looks fun. I think someone should invent a special "Nipland" just for cats.

  17. Mommy remembers Candyland -- she used to get mad when other player's game pieces passed her-- so everytime she had a chance to pass another player -- she would smack over their game piece with her game piece! (It wasn't all gumdrops and catnip to Mommy -- trust us!)

  19. TW says she never played that game. By the age of 5, she was into hard liquor and Mystery Date. HAH! She gambled big with Monopoly too.

  20. Oddly enough, my mom never played Candyland or Chutes and Ladders. She never heard of them until she was too old (she said) to care. Was she deprived? Mom said they played Monopoly, chinese checkers, parchesi, and tiddly winks and jacks. They all sound silly. But the jacks did include a little ball that sounds fun to chew on.
