When I interviewed him about this he said in his very intelligent, unprompted own words, "This type of Sorry! is a great adaptation from board to card game. I really loved playing with it on the trip, not only because it was lots of fun but because we didn't have any plastic moving pieces to lose." What's a mother not to love about that?
Of course Hasbro still offers the original Sorry! board game ($17.99) as well as a variety of other related products inspired by the original Sorry! classic ranging from a Sorry! replacement game piece packet ($3.99) to the Sorry! Spin Game ($24.99), to the SpongeBob SquarePants Edition ($19.99) to Hasbro Family Game Night hi tech versions for Wii, XBOX Live, XBOX 360, and Nintendo 360 platforms ($9.99-$39.99), among other variations.
Parent Readers: This question's for you. I recall playing "License Plates" on road trips with my family as a child. How about you? What kind of games do you remember playing in the car when you were a kid? I'd also love to hear any vignettes about kids and moms/dads playing any of the Sorry! games together.
