Morning Roundup is Totally Peeved By Parcheesi!

We’re sure this ad is an instant nostalgia-generator for many of you. What’s even cooler, as BoingBoing points out, is that this 1980 ad highlights two women who are clearly enjoying the game! And look at the woman on the left, with her pink turtleneck and Jessica Wakefield-esque lavalier necklace! She certainly doesn’t conform to any nerd stereotypes. See, 1980s parents? D&D is for everyone!

Morning Roundup has a look at The Three-Body Problem’s popularity in China, thoughts on the literary economy, and a dire warning that you may be trapped in a Christopher Nolan movie!
