Mall Madness Returns

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

For all Mall Madness lovers that spent pretty much their entire childhood moving miniature plastic people around a miniature plastic mall, well then this update is probably going to have you going absolutely crazy… 

 

Hasbro is about to bring back the nostalgic Mall Madness board game – and we can hear every ’90s girl screaming from over here!

 

It first came out in 1988 and was given a few makeovers over the years, with special edition versions including Littlest Pet Shop and Hannah Montana too, which you likely recall if you were a real fan. 

 

But for the past 15 years, for over a decade, the game has been discontinued. And now, thankfully, we’re about to be given back what was harshly taken away from us. The all new version is almost exactly the same as the original, despite all the updates that the game has gone through. T

 

According to sources, the core concepts of the game remain – so there’s no need to stress! You’ll be given your proper dose of ’90s nostalgia, as you deserve.
