my Grey Gardens board game combines the design of Candyland with the the mother-daughter relationship of "The Edie Beales" as seen in the Maysles Brothers' documentary Grey Gardens

players choose the best costume for the day from 8 Little Edie playing pieces, then take turns clockwise around the board in the order of age before beauty

the first player to get outta mother's house and to The Beach wins
