I would much more prefer Winning Moves. Agreed. USA was just an example. But there definitely needs to be a reasonably priced classic edition by someone. Then again, perhaps that's why Hasbro is still licensing the high end editions, because they don't compete with DTS. EDIT: I just went to the Fra...

Great Application of a Live Clue Concept

This real estate agent put together a Clue scavenger hunt for kids to play in a home she was showing to their parents:

maybe bad Clue games are just that for Hasbro: a way of getting their brand out there. I suppose. But I was just looking at the Hasbro website Monopoly offerings. Never has there been so many different Monopoly variants. But most importantly, they still offer the classic Monopoly game in both tradi...

isn't Mrs. White doing her job by returning the chairs and cleaning off the table? ... I think it's kind of silly to move chairs just because they're not being used to begin with. Oops ... guess I misread CluedoKid's post. But don't let that stop you from putting a drink cart in every room! ;-) As ...

LoL... are you saying that Mr. Boddy can never have more than 5 guests Nope. Just that if White is doing her job, the table will only be set for the 5 guests in attendance. Remember Clue the movie, there were only 7 seats at the table. 3 on each side and one on the kitchen end of the table. There w...

But I need to think of a way to incorperate actual Latin translating/ syntax/ vocabulary into the game. I hate to say it but perhaps you want to incorporate some of the elements of the Discover the secrets game. Have spaces that require the players to translate "clues" in order to get the opportuni...

shouldn't there only be 6 chairs (7 if Mrs. White joins them)?

A.D.D.? ;-) Don't forget about this one. Just noticed this Netherlands edition and was struck by the unusual board artwork. Not that you necessarily want to take this approach here, but I like how there is an attempt to depict the exterior of the house for a change – especially if you have an ide...

Maybe I just don't understand the Juicy concept One visit to their website will confirm nobody understands the Juicy concept. It's sort of a trendy eclectic hodge-podge of styles thrown together in what is supposed to pass for fashionable. Oh and with a premium price-tag. So don't try too hard. But...

Anybody who does talk like that would see through the sad attempts to reach to a younger generation with faux hip slang. Or anybody who does NOT talk like that. Kids are not dumb when it comes to their milieu. They know when a creepy adult tries to pander to them and when one is legitimate. Thanks ...

it gives each player 8 steps to enter their first room (eliminating Mrs. Peacock's advantage). But Mrs. Peacock needs all the help she can get! ;-) Where do you find the time? Yet another great edition. Why not make the dining room symmetrical too? It certainly wouldn't change anything to annex tho...

Our Clue will return to us; we need only patience. Ah but at what cost. I dread the day I reference "Colonel Mustard, in the Billiard Room with the Lead Piping", and I am met with only a blank stare. It is our cultural similarities that draw us together. When those get tossed out, even for a genera...

Samantha Zach Emma Ryan Ashley Justin Oh brother ... even the kids with those names are over them. Cluedo 90210 anybody? This seems to be a little more of a Clue Jr. approach.

Clue's roots go back to the early-mid 1900s. It is now 2009. I refer you to this article which makes the point far more eloquently than I can. Of course Clue benefits from being able to overlay it with templates that appeal to a particular demographic and helps move boards. My Simpsons Clue is one ...

Does anyone else feel the setting is utterly random? ...I'd figure they'd use a high school or something, not dump the game in Paris for some "OMG intrigue."

Agreed. The floorplan felt really forced into this style. In many respects, the object oriented approach of the 60s & 70s US versions is the best for this game.

so I have some time to decide. Yeah, that's one you may need to live with a while. I personally like the minimalist middle one (solution set). The only other suggestion I would make based on the middle variation, is to use the floor pattern, but not the walls, and only the abstract shapes of the fu...
