Who killed Toby? Play the 'Office' version of 'Clue' and find out

Posted on Thu Sep 17 2009


Michael Scott did it in the warehouse with a "World's Best Boss" mug. At least, that's how it might turn out if indeed the titular head of Dunder Mifflin's Scranton, Pa., branch killed his mild-mannered frenemy, Toby. But this is just a game, after all, and the murderer in the Office version of Clue has to be Dwight anyway. He's the shifty one with the hair-trigger temper and an unnatural attachment to his boss. Plus, he's a cat euthanizer! The whodunit board game, made by USAOPOLY via a Hasbro license and a deal with NBC Universal's consumer products division and the show's producer, Reveille, launched recently at Borders, Barnes & Noble and other retailers. It puts the paper-company employees of the Emmy-winning NBC comedy in the office on a Saturday—of course they're grumbling about overtime—to figure out who offed Toby, the head of human resources. (Toby's probably not really dead, by the way.) The timing's good—the new season of The Office premieres tonight—and what fan doesn't want to extend the experience by accusing Jim Halpert of doing it in the parking lot with a rabid bat?
