Grape Escape Game: Grape Art

We own a copy of Parker Brothers game "Grape Escape". You make your own game marker using colored Play-doh and a grape shaped press, each player using a different color doh. The game then consists of racing your grape through various crazy dangers to arrive first at the finish line. If a competitor rolls a certain setting when you are in peril, he may spin a crank and have a cartoonish device (similar to "Mouse Trap") physically destroy your grape player marker, (instead of simply returning you to start). Scissors, a rolling pin, a big boot, are each invoked to 'smush' your marker, where you then simply press out a new one and start over.

Of course we can't stop there. We always make additional copies of the grapes, then docorate them and place them in scenes appropriate to their color. Here is our "Grape Escape" art pictures.
