Re: Clue w/ bathroom

When I was a kid, I always thought the Hall was redundant, because it was part of the hall system that connected the rooms. Now I understand the grand hall that these big English mansion estates have. But it still seems redundant. But it seems like they have tried to add an entrance in the two space...

Re: Clue w/ bathroom

Interesting that they’re promoting it with a “fan voted Room”. I still say this is the wrong kind of design for a first floor bathroom where there are no bedrooms. There should be a couch where the bathtub is, and the toilet should be in a closet. Then it would be a true powder room, something befit...

The original Canadian Candlestick is identical to the first edition US edition, minus the stamped labeling on the bottom.

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Now since it appears that it will be a while for the next theme, perhaps we could be getting expanded character roisters. Here are the missing people for the different themes. What do you think their occupations/motives would be? Tudor Mansion/International Rusty, Mrs. Meadow-Brook Classic Mansion ...

Re: Room Repository

I actually don’t mind a theatre in Tudor Mansion. I totally see Boddy having one in his home. Tea room is a good one. I was one of the few who actually liked the gym location and dumbbell as a weapon in DTS. It goes back to an old COLUMBO 60s/70s episode where the murder victim was killed in his ho...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

I don't know if you guys have seen this but at my local toy store, they have a poster for the Orchid Edition of Cluedo. Something seemed different compared to the board game but I realized what it was. Have you guys seen Dr. Orchid with a pink flower in her hair? You should take a pic and share it ...

Those look pretty good - is that a poster sized version of the board? That would be awesome to have!

They need to update with Dr Orchid costumes and accessories lol

Re: A trend with Mrs. White

I tried playing Clue Bingo, but the Clue theme seemed almost irrelevant. Just images to use. The artwork is great and suckered me in, but I’m not a big enough bingo fan to have the theme hardly factor in at all. I’m just glad Mrs White hasn’t been retconned out of existence. She may have been repla...

Re: Knives Out (2019 murder mystery film)

I really loved it.

It reminded me of the CLUE movie. Very similar sensibility. Kind of slow moving by today’s standards, but well crafted. The casting is amazing and the character palette is right out of Clue. There’s even an explicit reference to Clue in the movie.

Re: Guess Who Clue, Hasbro mashups

I just picked up the game on a Target pre-Black Friday sale for $15. It’s still a little pricey for an extra set of cards, but I now see there are lots of extra “instructional” cards that can be reused for other purposes, and even for the “bonus” cards if you use those in a clue game. All things con...

Re: Clue Rustic “Farmhouse” Edition — Yee haw

The wooden weapons really don’t have enough contrast between them to easily tell them apart. Perhaps in a brightly lit room, this wouldn’t be a problem, but even in this well lit photo they’re not that distinct. Add to that most wont be viewing directly overhead but at an angle and they become harde...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Here's the box artwork scanned. It's really just exceptional artwork and theme for such a cheaply made game. Considering the effort here, a Christmas tin would have been appropriate.

Re: Clue Rustic “Farmhouse” Edition — Yee haw

Finally picked up a copy of this. A couple of disappointing observations. The rustic sepia-tone rough hewn look of everything is appreciated, but a little too liberal. The board and cards are both printed on uncoated brown paper — while giving the game an authentic rustic look, it gives the two part...

Re: Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas Clue

Picked this up. A couple of observations: The box has a plastic insert to hold the parts. It’s reminiscent of the high quality boxes that have always been a hallmark of the Cluedo editions. I also got the Scooby Doo 50th anniversary edition reissue and it likewise has the plastic insert. I have to g...

Detective Notepad Preferences

The current editions of the game have the Suspects, Weapons, and Locations all in alphabetical order. But is this the best way to present it? Previous editions have ordered the locations in a clockwise, or counterclockwise order, starting usually from the Hall. Suspects generally start with Scarlett...

Re: Cluedo Harry Potter collector edition 2019

How is this different than the 2011 DTS World of Harry Potter Harry Potter edition?

viewtopic.php?t=5298

What makes it a Collector edition? It's in a White Box instead of a Red or Blue one?
