Sorry, I tried my best.

This classic board game was a wedding gift:

It is a beautiful edition of the game, with a neat wooden box made to look like a thick reference manual when viewed from the side. I was excited to get the gift, until we actually took it out and played a game. Turns out, Sorry! is a terrible game. I have no idea how it managed to become the American board game icon that it is, because it is totally boring. It's like an Art Deco-style cousin to Candyland, Shoots and Ladders, and Trouble, but without the fun of the pop-o-matic bubble. It's the board game version of a carousel, it doesn't take too long before you get tired of just going around in a circle. I'm sure that someone out there will love it, though.
