The latest conversion is to Clue. Indeed, we managed to figure out how to make it easy enough for a five year old. We take the character cards, shuffle them and everyone gets to pick a card. That is their character and those cards get laid aside. We then take all the room cards, shuffle them and pick one. This is the room in which all the characters start. That card gets laid aside. We then take all the rest of the characters and the weapons and spread them throughout the rooms. We take all the cards and shuffle them, putting them in a pile in the center of the board. The first card gets put face up. All the characters must then race to the room which contains the item (or the room itself). The first person who gets to the room gets the card. The person with the most cards wins.
And that is how you take adult games and turn them into kids games.
