Gun mention, board game 

TIL that the original "revolver" in Clue was... a Colt M1911 semiautomatic PISTOL, which, you may note, is not a revolver.

They finally fixed it 13 years later by replacing the pistol with a revolver, though, for unknown reasons, they chose an Allan and Thurber Pepperbox model, which has a distinctive look but was obsolete by the Civil War.

Now if only they'd fix the "candlestick" terminology. It's a candleholder! You couldn't murder someone with a candlestick!

And TIL that a "candlestick" IS a candleholder, and that what I'd always called a candlestick is apparently just a "candle," so Clue wins again.
