Well that was quick.

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.

What's this one?

I thought I remember one of the artists commenting here on the forum that the sketches were supposed to have the title on them, at least the last few releases or so.  But I see from looking on eBay that  Pat Chaimuang's sketches do not.

Most of the ones I just pulled do have the title, but there are a few that don't.

Agreed. I thought it was a rhetorical question.
