Look what I found. . .
Oh please, please look at the phrase printed below Husker Du. It says, "Where the Child May Outwit the Adult." May outwit? Where is that warning printed on my Husker Du box-I'd like to know!
Lemme check my box...
Nope, nothing about the child outwitting the adult here. However, look in the lower left corner...my box does have a special feature...
Whoo hooo! A chance to go to Denmark! Haven't you always wanted to visit Denmark? It says, "details on back". . .
Turning the box over I see. . .
The Grand Prize is indeed a big trip to Denmark. If you win 1st prize, you get a six piece place setting of china. Not too shabby. Hope they pack things well in Denmark. What a mess that would be to open, lots of broken china and all. Second prize...a set of cookware . . .hmmmm wonder what all of these food related items have to do with Husker Du?
Check out third prize . . .
That does it! Where do we sign up? When is the drawing?
Seems it's been a bit longer than I thought since I was a little girl playing this game with my sisters.
Do you think if the game company knew that every one of those red plastic game pieces is still accounted for and that, with the aid of two or three rolls of masking tape, the game box is still intact, they'd be glad to send us a ham or two? Do I want a ham that was offered for a prize from Denmark twenty-seven years ago?
No, I Husker-Don't!
