Fortunately there is a company still selling the original version and I ordered that to be sent to me.  Hopefully it has retained all the charm of the original version and we can once again conjecture that the murder of poor Mr. Boddy was done by…. Mrs. Peacock?  Colonel Mustard?  Professor Plum?  We must wait to find out.
