Re: Clue Current Thoughts

It’s not about the color. It’s about — have you ever met, or heard of anyone named “Didit”? No. Therefore it goes way too far across the line of clever plausibility. Inspector Pry is wonderful on the other hand, because Pry is a real name and it’s what the professor does. De’ath is just as a big a m...

Re: The Rooms of Clue Bingo

Fantastic list of ideas here. A room of pinned butterflies is one of my favorite ideas for a room, but I’ve never had a good excuse to use it 😛 That is great idea for a room - it would be very atmospheric for a murder mystery. I would swear someone on this forum came up with he idea of an insect di...

Re: Master Room Repository

Depending on how you view the Swimming Pool, hasn't there already been instances of both indoor and outdoor Swimming Pools in Clue? Clue FX has an outdoor pool, for instance, and Discover the Secrets has a pool indoors pool inside the house. Although a dedicated building for a pool would certainly ...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

On the note of the VCR games actually I love the idea of Didit, the Butler. It's so concise in it's corniness but it works perfectly for me. That forum game I thought was too serious to actually go forward with? The working name was actually "The Butler, Didit," with him in the playing role. That n...

I know there’s already a swimming pool. But I’d like to see a natatorium as well. Very Cluedo like.

This is actually an excellent idea for a Cluedo scenario. Something that really wouldn’t have been thinkable prior to 2020.

Re: A new Clue Dvd release

Did you get it yet? Most likely it’s just a marketing series bundle, with other classic movies as part of the Collectors packaging. Kind of like the various bookshelf editions — essentially the same versions of the games with new packaging to appeal to a new audience. Sadly Paramount has put no mone...

Re: The Designs/Artwork of Clue

I really really wish someone would restart cataloguing each version like Michael used to here. I don’t want scans of all the silly themed versions, but it’d be nice to be able to quickly see the history of the evolving board. Well feel free: Here's the list! http://www.theartofmurder.com/forums/vie...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

A patent is a public filing. Things may be a bit different in the UK, but probably not. Patent filings in the USA are in the public domain by definition. The patent on Cluedo has long since expired, which is why the basic mechanics described in the patent can be appropriated by anyone. All Hasbro ha...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

I'd be more than happy if they flushed that change. I wouldn't have minded if they kept it around a little longer, but would have preferred they gave the room and overall board placement/design a little bit of an overhaul to actually make it work and look good. Maybe they should have just added a s...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

I love that board! Definitely getting it. Perhaps alongside with the Ghost of Mrs. White :) Ugh. But it’s a whole new play mechanic. All the rooms connect to each other, so no more rolling dice and just move from room to room? It doesn’t appear one can enter the center area to pass through either, ...

Wait, is that Clue?!?!? I count at least 2 extra weapons too Edit: Yes, it appears it has 11 locations, 8 players, and 8 weapons. I'm not sure if it's an "official" Brazilian version or just a knock off, though... https://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-862118819-jogo-tabuleiro-detetive-3d-estrateg...

Re: The Ghost of Mrs White

So even though they have figurines for all the characters, they take the cheap route and go back to the basic pawns for the others? Ugh. And no Mrs.White card? So $12.99 for a white figurine? At least the board can be modified to take a new starting spot, and the Cards from the Guess Who hybrid shou...

That’s mine. I think it was in a thread about insides fitting the outside, I’ll have a look when I get a chance.

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Reason for board layout: Note the reassignment of rooms (hall vs. dining room) to match room layout map alignment. Even the stairs are present between the billiard room an library on he digital board. The stairs were later removed from the 2011 physical board layout, in the 2013 double-sided edition...
