Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Remember this new chocolate tin edition that came out last year? http://www.theartofmurder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6894 I don’t know if anyone ever found one, but this is the kind of treatment this holiday edition deserves. In fact, why not make it a chocolate edition? So much effort executed...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

The Sleigh Room definitely looks like it could have been intended as a functional room at some point in the development of this game - if they are going to have a singular room as the start location, it makes more sense to me to have that room be the central one (it can be the denouncement room as ...

Clue is 75% off on Steam! Only about $11 for the game and season pass
Ugh. I wish they had a MacOS version.

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

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? Also, I have a few issues with the way the Sleigh Room and...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Darn, it is too bad that they went so cheap as this looks cute and like it would be a nice little holiday themed game - at least the flimsy cards means that it might be easy to make your own cards and slip in without it being too obvious, as I too would look at making the sleigh shed and the 'start...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Finally here’s a presentation of the whole game setup for play. I’ve included a Sharpie and a regular edition Clue card for size reference. The pawns are essentially full-sized, and don’t really fit on the start space, and are a bit too large for the spaces as well. The weapons are massive. The dice...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Here's the unboxing: All of the parts are stacked. Note the weapons must be separated from the plastic frame, as well as the cards separated. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49066377463_4f7fd9fc97_o.jpg Note that even though there's one extra card space on the template, instead of giving an extr...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Murder by Death hit on a lot of the same criticisms I have for this one - if it’s just the boat, have it be a Mystery at Sea type situation, if it’s going to be Tropical then it would have been nice if it had used actual tropical locations. I have a feeling the tropical angle is in part to have som...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Other than the views outside the yacht windows in the vignettes, this could be set anywhere ... like Alaska. Nobody is even in a swimsuit. I suppose the concession is that yachting is typically done in tropical, or warmer areas like the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. I’m not that impressed really. ...

I'm glad they did this. D&D gets updated a lot. And having new stuff as characters, weapons, and locations are good for it. specily considering this year we got a lot of updates with special editions like Simpsons and Scooby Doo.
Wait what Simpsons special edition?

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Depending on how they design the board, the bow could be the Hall or Ballroom, which comes to a point, and the two corner rooms on either side, could be island locations, like a beach and a dock. But I don’t see any other way to do the yacht without the other 7 rooms being on the yacht.

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Mustard's reveal seems a little more... underwhelming than the others. Ah well, I'm more interested in seeing what they do with the board anyway. We’ve already seen some rooms haven’t we? Stern Bar Casino Bridge Stateroom Helipad Undersea observation lounge? That only leaves 3 rooms for any island ...

I’ll be waiting for a sale ... lol Just got the GuessWho/Clue mashup at ToysRUs Canada. Kudos to alwaysPeacock and MurderByDeath for suggesting to use this card deck as an expansion for the standard game. ...

Re: Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas Clue

So Hot Topic has the special edition Clue if you don't wanna sell an arm and a leg on Ebay. I just saw it in store. It's the blackwhite board with the hard coffin peices. retails for $48.90 unfortantly. but still cheaper then Ebay https://www.hottopic.com/product/clue-the-nightmare-before-christmas...

Re: Clue Snap On Edition

Odd. It’s made by USAopoly, but must have been a limited edition sold exclusively by Snap-On dealers, as I’ve never seen it on the USAopoly site.
