Re: Which is the best Marmalade theme?

Oh I doubt it’s anyone’s favorite theme :lol:

It’s nice, but I’m salty that’s when they dropped the ball on sculpting custom playing pieces & just recycling existing models. :?

Re: Cluedo Liars Edition

Very excited for this one. Similar to the cheater’s Monopoly, but still looks like a promising game despite the inherent gimmick.

Re: Which is the best Marmalade theme?

Tudor/Classic get the heaviest rotation from me, but my favorite overall theme has to be Murder Express. It’s a fun board to throw almost any combination of characters into, and I love the entirety of that 9-part suspect lineup. Why no love for the Egyptian dig theme? Or just an oversight when you s...

Short form Clue/do History on YouTube

From Deseret News Most enjoyable to see Pratt’s daughter, Marcia Lewis, interviewed, as well as Rob Daviau, the game designer we can apparently thank for that woefully misguided “Discover the Secrets” rebranding. Nothing new in this for people like us, but a nicely produced little piece. I especial...

Cluedo Super Sleuth, rules clarification

Finally got myself a copy of ‘95s Cluedo Super Sleuth — essentially finishing the part of my collection for advanced editions (except Passport to Murder & the UK Super Cluedo, which are ultimately just redesigns of earlier advanced games, so I’m not rushing to bankrupt myself trying to snag those an...

Re: Non-Clue Board Games

Re: Non-Clue Board Games

I’ve got a more than decent home library of games (not a TON like many other gamers I know, but that’s pretty evenly attributed to my consistent lack of spare funds to buy all the games I want, and the fact I don’t want to burn up whatever storage space I have by cluttering it up with piles of dusty...

Re: When did the Hall loose a door?

I hate that missing door. At least modern Clue games include two dice, but it does make it a pain to have to visit the Hall (Bathroom?). Personally, I think Marmalade’s marriage of the classic rooms/aesthetic with the condensed layout of the 2013 board is an ideal happy medium & I wish Hasbro were w...

Re: New Cluedo Jr. Game?

This looks super cute, IMO. A bit closer to a traditional Cluedo experience for the younger players, since a broken toy could be considered dead. Hope we get this re-skin stateside too.

Re: New Year, Cheaper Clue

I just noticed something else annoying: while they may have dropped the "New Suspects" label from the box graphics, it looks like they still have the old version of the game board pictured on the box: https://i67.servimg.com/u/f67/18/91/37/14/7-d62110.jpg Yeah, I know it's cheaper (sorry, " more co...

Re: Clue w/ bathroom

Well, that’s ... ugly. Definitely not in any rush to add this to the shelves. Are we to assume this is the best Hasbro could think of to celebrate 70 years of Clue? :| Even the “Discover the Secrets” reinvented game was a better 60th anniversary marker than this. The bathroom itself is fine (I’d enj...

Re: New Year, Cheaper Clue

Yes, it's a quad-fold board (see pictures). The label for the Dining Room is also positioned just right to split between the two words perfectly where the split in the room can’t be avoided. The Hall doesn’t jar me as much as the Ballroom — at least the Hall label runs parallel with the carpet runne...

Re: New Clue Road Trip Travel Game Coming

Thought regarding the pegs: is it possible players are meant to use the weapons tokens to fill the weapons slots on the shared “notebook”? Numerically that leaves enough pegs to mark the suspects & rooms, and would make sense in a modified game like this for removing the weapons from the rooms/playi...

New Year, Cheaper Clue

My local grocery store has all of their holiday merchandise on deep discount now, including the pile of toys & games they stocked up on for gift buying. So when I spotted this, the collector in me had no qualms dropping about $6: (as usual, click to enlarge any of these photos) https://i.postimg.cc/...

RULES and MOVEMENT: Hasbro seems to be instituting a new rule with these editions -- you my stay in the room you're in after you roll the dice, and guess again in that location. Has that rule been implemented in any of the standard editions? It’s actually not a new rule at all, but a return to the ...

Re: What was your first Clue game?

1996 edition. I’d spotted the game on a shelf at an after school care facility & was really into the whole premise & artwork. It was missing pieces, so I couldn’t play it. Fast-forward a few weeks & I brought home a report card with straight A’s. The reward was a trip to Toys-r-Us to pick any one th...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

In one of Marmalade's pictures of Monopoly, there's not one but two references to Clue in it I’m doing the beta test of the new Monopoly mobile game. They’ve got a LOT of recycled Clue & Life graphics populating the billboards around the city they’ve built in the middle of the board. It’s cute, but...
