Back in 1968 Hasbro debuted a game meant to bring families together, a game that revolved around a gag which had been used by clowns for decades- the old pie in the face.
What sounded like a good idea to game designers ended up playing out like a clown version of Russian Roulette, so it should come as no surprise that Pie Face didn’t do very well with consumers.
Apparently a family who takes “goo in the face” doesn’t spend more time together, and there’s something rather creepy about sitting around waiting for little Suzy or Papa to take a mini pie in the face, especially if they're sporting a maniacal grin like the family on the box!
