Hello and welcome to another view into this one-of-a-kind collection celebrating the bizarre world of creepy or unusual toys & games. Each item featured in this collection represents a questionable moment in the development of toys and games throughout history.
Today’s Featured Item: 13 Dead End Drive, A “3D” Board Game
Billed as a “3D board game” — 13 Dead End Drive is clearly inspired by the successful board game, Clue.
13 Dead End Drive is a murder mystery board game from Milton Bradley. Released in 1993, and showing a graphic style very in line with the times, the original was followed by a sequel in 2002.
In a typical narrative scenario, the death of a wealthy heiress causes fights over her will and who inherits her wealth. The players can work with and use traps situated on the game board (this is the 3D part), that depicts the woman’s mansion, to kill off other characters in order to claim the estate for themselves.
