Brandy Land

Well that was quick.

(I will boast about my copy of Brandy Land, though...)

Makes me long for my Candy Land board game from childhood, which was likely the exact version used in the parody, as I got it around the same time.  Somewhat simplistic gameplay, but I loved the images on the board, such as “ice cream floats”, which were slices of spumoni floating on a lake like little rafts.  Too funny.

I still have my Candy Land game from 50 or so years ago and keep it for the sake of nostalgia.  I particularly liked the ice cream rafts, as well.  Can't put my finger on it; There's just something neat about them.

Yes!  And the cluster of gumdrops, the ice pops, etc.  Before I posted yesterday I couldn’t remember too many specifics, only that I remember loving the board graphics and how colorful they are.  Looking at google images is what brought the memories rushing back.  I played this game a lot when I first got it, and definitely for a good while before being distracted away by something else.

Oddly, I couldn’t pinpoint the version I most likely had, which would have been bought around 1974 if I remember correctly.  An eBay search featured a 1955, 1962, 1978, 1984 and later versions.  Maybe mine was a ‘62 that stayed in production without changing the year?  Not sure.

Good to know you guys are still doing the cool trivia stuff on here that I remember in the Wacky heyday.  A lot better than my goofball Wacky puzzles, too.
