For fans of NBC sitcom smash, The Office, the years since the show's end in 2013 have been dark ones, to say the least. Sure, we've had Cards Against Humanity games, and even a recently announced podcast launch.
Even more exciting? NBC is finally planning an Office reboot, which is set to launch along with new NBC streaming network launching in 2021.
But for fans who can't wait that long? There's a new board game launch that could just fill the Dunder-Mifflin shaped hole in their hearts.
The Office is one of NBC's best loves sitcoms.It was on from 2005 to 2013, and is still available on a variety of streaming sites. This means, even though it has ended, it’s never really left the cultural zeitgeist.
Here are a few of its stars hanging out in 2005.From left to right, we have John Krasinksi, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson and BJ Novak. They played Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Dwight Shrute and Ryan the temp, respectively.
Some fans don't know that The Office was actually a remake.It's based on the British BBC series of the same name, which premiered in 2001 and starred Ricky Gervais.
The show gained a cult following.It's still extremely popular to this day, and can be streamed on Amazon Prime. If you haven't watched it yet, we highly recommend!
People absolutely love the show.

Its high-quality humour is one of the reasons for its ongoing popularity.The cast of characters alongside the unlikely escapades they get up to over the show's nine seasons never fail to raise a laugh.
The show also has a surprisingly sweet core.The relationships between the different Office characters could warm anyone's heart. The show is a perfect balance of cringe-inducingly funny and touchingly moving.
There are certain scenes from The Office which will never get old.

The inside jokes from the show still strike a chord today.

The show is bursting at the seams with inside jokes.Here, Jim complains about Dwight throwing the most depressing birthday party imaginable - complete with brown and grey deflated balloons and that iconic "banner."
It's also eminently quotable.Michael Scott, the boss, is pictured here about to jump off the office building to prove a point to his co-workers.
The Office has also given us some of the most iconic reaction GIFs out there.This eye roll, by long suffering salesman Stanley, is the perfect response to a wide variety of annoying situations.
Another reason for the show's ongoing popularity?The relationships between the characters. A firm fan favourite was the will-they, won't-they romance between reluctant salesman Jim and shy receptionist Pam.
The show went off the air in 2013.And since then, fans have had to rely solely on reruns to get their Dunder Mifflin fix. The show does stand up to a second (or third, or fourth) watch - but it's not the same.
Luckily, there has been extra Dunder Mifflin content.Every so often, Office fans will get some never before seen info, or a behind the scenes secret - even a card game or a podcast!
But the latest Office spin-off product?Well, it might just be our favorite yet.
Because this one is absolutely hilarious.And anyone who's watched The Office will agree, it's a genius idea that we can't believe didn't exist until now.
It centers around everyone's least favorite character.Toby Flenderson, the long-suffering HR manager of Dunder Mifflin is basically there to spoil everybody's fun.
He's certainly had his fair share of issues.Because basically nobody at Dunder Mifflin likes him very much.
And now that fact has been made abundantly clear.Because there's a version of Clue based around the characters of The Office - with one who serves as the unfortunate murder victim.
And who else could it be?Obviously it's poor, unfortunate Toby who ends up murdered. But who perpetrated the crime?
There's one pretty obvious guess.Michael truly cannot stand the guy. But actually, everybody has their own personal motive for doing away with Toby.
And the aim of the game?Figure out who was behind the dastardly murder. In a team led by Michael Scott, rather than, like the police or anyone of authority, of course.
And of course, finding the perpetrator isn't all.Like with any Clue game, you also need to figure out where in the office the murder went down, and what the weapon was.
It could be anyone.Well, almost anyone. The chief suspect, Michael, actually acts as the detective - but other suspects include Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Dwight Schrute, Angela Martin, Stanley Hudson, and Andy Bernard.
And as for location ...Well, the murder could have taken place in the warehouse, the annex, the kitchen, accounting, the break room, the conference room, reception, Michael's office, or the parking lot.
And the weapons might be the most hilarious.Our personal favorite? The George Foreman grill. Sure, it can do a number on a foot - but could it really be responsible for a murder?
Many fans have has this reaction.
An "Office Clue" game to figure out who killed Toby? Anyone who has watched #TheOffice would tell you it had to be… https://t.co/b7NVo0zDuU— Liz Toll (@Liz Toll)1573041266.0
But others have offered a simpler reaction.
