Re: A new to-go game?

https://i.postimg.cc/pmf3hV8p/04-CEB3-B8-3-E94-4842-B1-F6-257-D633-DDF5-B.png Forgot Instagram would translate for me. :lol: Hasbro “Game Books.” And the case that houses all of them is a kind of metal suitcase. Sturdier than I’d have thought — so no way we’ll get it in the States! EDIT: Definitely...

Re: A new to-go game?

“Portable” needn’t mean it fits into a backpack. The second post “clearly” (used loosely because it is admittedly small & takes some pinch-n-zoom action to inspect) shows a case not much bigger than 1 average board game box built to contain multiple tins for multiple games. It’s like those early Wad...

Re: A new to-go game?

https://www.instagram.com/p/B5AfK__JYGx/ Looks like some kind of Hasbro multi-game package. Another post on the same account shows details of the Monopoly pieces. It looks like players can purchase the base set & additional tins of playing pieces & boards to pack multiple games into one case. I’m to...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

If this is the last theme, or even if there’s just one more to fulfill the 10 they committed to from the start, it’s unlikely they’ll add additional content. It’s more likely we’ll see some cosmetic updates (playing pieces to match all of the artwork, retroactive theming of the corpse in each theme,...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

I hope they’re not rushing this one out like they did with the Egypt theme. Still not pleased that Meadowbrook was the only unique suspect token they designed for it (using a dark blue Scarlet for a Peacock token — really??).

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

I’d hope Gray is one of the remaining two. Of all the traditional suspects (everyone except the Sherlock-specific characters) he’s the only one without any themed options. :/

Re: Guess Who Clue, Hasbro mashups

Yeah, one of my friends insisted on setting up her board in a very organized order (as seen above). I’ve since randomized both boards for the exact reasons stated above. Granted, it does mean a little more time scanning the options in front of you, but that’s how Guess Who has always worked, so *shr...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

This could very well be the last theme we get. In one of the discussion threads on the game’s Steam community page, the developers stated they were committed to releasing 10 themes for Clue/Cluedo. If the Classic Mansion & suspects count as a theme, this next one will be number 10. Timing wise, this...

Re: Who from Marmalade's Cluedo has the most ludicrous attack pose?

Nurse Peach’s balletic attack is certainly high camp. From the same theme, Irene Adler’s reclining pose on the floor is just ... why?

Re: Guess Who Clue, Hasbro mashups

I might pick up a copy this afternoon. I’m very interested to see if the deck of cards (the larger ones you’d draw from & have to guess to win) form a complete deck (namely, are all 9 standard rooms accounted for). If so, all anyone needs is a set of colored pawns to match & a poison token from anot...

Re: First Mrs. White, then the Hall, is the Lead pipe next?

The answer the original question: I hope so. The poison should have been given full time status decades ago (like, from the beginning. What was Pratt/Waddington’s logic in dropping it after the patent was filed?). Hasbro can (and will) tinker with their classics as often as they see fit/want to. Now...

Guess Who Clue, Hasbro mashups

Didn’t see a post about this yet, so: Hasbro has launched another Target exclusive series of games. This time it’s mashups of their popular brands into some charming party games. Twister Scrabble. Jenga Monopoly. Of interest to us: Guess Who Clue . But look closely at the promo image & you’ll spot t...

Not that I need to buy another copy of this, but has anyone else found this new edition in their local shops?

Maybe bringing back Mrs. White?? :D I think Dr. Orchid is here for the long run, or at least another 5 — 10 years.

Re: Clue's 70th anniversary

I certainly hope so! They’ve marked every anniversary for Monopoly, and completely botched Clue(do)’s 60th by trying to “reinvent” the game. A brand new, truly deluxe edition would be most welcome (meaning not another rehash/mashup of the vintage editions and/or Franklin Mint editions. Something ACT...
