Which cart am I?

Recommended Posts

To put each clue in some kind of context:

 

1 - Don't forget to drink your ovaltine - Refers to the theme / purpose of the game

 

2 - Going once, going twice, sold! - Refers to the name of the game

 

3 - King me! - Refers to a graphical element of the game, cart, packaging

Video Checkers!

1 - Don't forget to drink your ovaltine - Refers to the theme / purpose of the game

got me, I can't make up one for that clue

 

2 - Going once, going twice, sold! - Refers to the name of the game

There is a song "Sold" about a girl at an auction "Checker" out (check her out...)

 

3 - King me! - Refers to a graphical element of the game, cart, packaging

Creepy dude with a crown on the box.

Not Video Checkers or Codebreaker. (that's funny, it seems like almost every game I think maybe it is Codebreaker).

 

OK, maybe I overdid it this time. I will start refining things a bit;

 

 

1 - Don't forget to drink your ovaltine - Refers to the theme / purpose of the game - Just follow the dialogue, guys, you should have this movie burned into your brain by now.

 

2 - Going once, going twice, sold! - Refers to the name of the game -

 

3 - King me! - Refers to a graphical element of the game, cart, packaging - Reminicent of a touchdown in Knoxville

Mean Santa ?

 

It looks like the kid is "presenting" the gift to Santa like to royalty (albeit at gunpoint, LOL)

 

EDIT: I see Christmas games are out, but I will post it anyway, because the artwork for the game is awesome :D

Mouse Trap?

 

(The next line in A Christmas Story is "A crummy commercial? Son of a bitch!" You change into a dog in Mouse Trap and every dog, after all, is a son of a bitch.

 

"King me", well, Checkers was a famous dog.

 

And the mouse on the cover of Mouse Trap looks like an auctioneer, or a conductor, though you said it was a title clue...)

Not Mouse Trap, Mean Santa, or Skeet Shoot. To hone in on the clue answered by thegoldenband:

 

1 - Don't forget to drink your ovaltine - Refers to the theme / purpose of the game - "A Crummy Commercial?"

 

2 - Going once, going twice, sold! - Refers to the name of the game -

 

3 - King me! - Refers to a graphical element of the game, cart, packaging - A pattern reminiscent of a touchdown in Knoxville, TN

Cookie Monster Munch?

 

I dunno, I figured the first clue was "A crummy comercial" , but had no clue how that would relate to any games gameplay though. Cookies have crumbs though, so there ya go.

 

I figured touchdown in TN might refer to a tornado. I think maybe that's not right thought.

 

Stumped.

Chase the Chuckwagon almost works, since it's a crummy commercial (of a game) and used to be the name of GameGavel (an auction site). I can't figure out the tornado/"king me" element, though.

Chase the Chuckwagon is correct!

 

1 - Don't forget to drink your ovaltine - Refers to the theme / purpose of the game - a crummy commercial? - The game is basically a commercial for dogfood

 

2 - Going once, going twice, sold! - Refers to the name of the game - The original name of Gamegavel was Chase the Chuckwagon

 

3 - King me! - Refers to a graphical element of the game, cart, packaging - Pattern reminiscent of a touchdown in Knoxville TN - The endzones of the Tennessee Volunteers stadium are painted in a checkerboard pattern. This pattern is seen on the Chuckwagon in the game, box and cart.
