It never occurred to me that some of these editions started in the UK/US and then went to the US/UK from there. I guess it's a good way for Hasbro to test a game in one country without spending the extra money on printing both CLUE and CLUEDO at the same time. That way if it doesn't sell as well as...

Current events have made me consider the concept of Miss Scarlet as a spy. The games in which she had been portrayed as such have always been vague about what her activities have entailed or for whom she worked, but I am curious as to everyone's interpretations. I have never been a fan of a spy Scar...

Murder by Death wrote:maybe instead of "Stabbing" as a category, "Cutting" or "Impaling". Seeing "Stabbing" and an axe together were sort of incongruous.
Trust me. Nothing in this game has moved out of its development stage.

I have been working on weapons and rooms but with little success.

Those are exactly what mine look like. Clue Mysteries is a game that I choose to forget about, but it does demonstrate how games with a lot of pieces should have some sense of order to them. There appears to be no difference in terms of the FX-grade games. Inspection of my Clue FX revealed that it w...

One instance where a US game has a great packaging tray is the DVD game. It has niches for all of the suspects, magnifying glass, cards, and so forth. Arguably, it does have the best packaging of any US game I have ever had. It would be more agreeable if they all had a tray like that, but, as it has...

I wish my boredom more often resulted in things like that. Truly unique and excellent.

I've had my own questions regarding the use of Sherlocks Holmes on Clue. I do not see the two as being able to mix, with the exception of the Franklin Mint edition. That is the only one where I could plausibly see Sherlock Holmes showing up and only because the time frame fits far better than the 19...

I meant that in jest. I just found it odd that the two times the lead pipe showed up, the suspect holding it seemed nervous. I've always found the bludgeoning weapons to be the most sinister. Stabbing and shooting are comparatively simple ways of killing someone, but to take a candlestick or wrench ...

Ah, I see what you mean now. Yes, these editions have far more attention to detail put into them. I complete agree that Burns Manor would make a far better library than what I've seen on any Clue board. This game exhibits what I said earlier these new games lack to the point of painful disappointmen...

Since when did the lead pipe become the most sinister weapon? In the two pictures that use the suspects holding weapons, the only one who looks genuinely nervous is the one holding the lead pipe.

I have never been a fan of the 1972 game in more or less any aspect. Your revisions to the board do correct some its, in my opinion, underwhelming and tacky elements. Something about the board that always annoyed me was that the suspect starting spaces did not match up with the moving spaces. They a...

"Listen," Mr. Meadow-Brook whispered to Miss Saffron as they stood on the edges of a group of people, "you know things. I know things. How about we try to sort this all out working together?" Miss Saffron stared at him. "Like a team?" Mr. Meadow-Brook sighed relief. "Yes, a team." "A team like when ...

That last one is awesome. Its concept is exactly what the cover of a Clue game should look like, not one character's face plastered over a third of the board and snapshots of martini glasses and pools over the rest. In terms of detail, I like the third one. I really liked the shadow of (I'm assuming...

I think that I've said this before, but it's worth repeating: your layout of the Tudor Close grounds is fantastic. The simple geometry of it makes it seem so elegant as to be worthy of a country estate but spaced out enough to allow for sinister sidling and dragging a lawyer's body.

Did Mr. Boddy/Dr. Black know that all of his guests wanted to kill him and invite them anyway, or did he invite them and slowly realize that he invited the wrong group of people to his isolated country estate? I tend to think that instead of the typical structure of various meetings throughout the e...

A rather intriguing few episodes. I like how you took a unique approach to the whole Meadow-Brook murder, especially having his body dumped in the lake. A side note: despite how much I like Mrs. Meadow-Brook, I feel somewhat sorry for her that while she is usually perceived as a woman who is formal ...

Yeah, I am not a fan of the room cards at all. The concept of showing people doing something characteristic of that room (i.e. dancing in the ballroom, reading in the library) is one that I do like, but I haven't found a way to pull it off that, as I agree with Green on, doesn't look cluttered and f...

Thank you. That is exactly the word I wanted to come to mind when looking at these cards. In my other games I've always taken the easy route and ended with games that look trendy or just well arranged, and I want this game to capture elegance and class.
