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 ...

I don't usually like more suspects than the standard 6 ... About the Dining Room, ... that hallway will look pretty big for no reason. Actually, I meant the opposite: bulge out the Lounge side so as to reduce the grand three-tile-wide hallway down which Col. Mustard embarks, making all of the hallw...

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. While the characters are still a bit too sophisticated for young kids. Then again, 6 year olds are starting to wear makeup....

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." It's reminding me of the Lizzie Mcguire movie for some reason. ... I may pick it up eventually just to add it to my collection, along with th...

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...

Okay, these just keep getting dumber and dumber... What TheWhitePawn said. I've never seen a more clear cut case of pandering to pre-teens and young adults. Curious to see if this uses locations around Paris, or a single building like a hotel. No doubt it will incorporate all of the same "improveme...

*hugs whitepawn for not using paint/powerpoint then cries with joy over the beauty of the work* What did you use? Photoshop? The floor textures are amazing, are those PS plugins?

maybe you can add the silhouettes of furniture from the inside? That's what the 96 Cluedo did, you can see the chandeleir in the Ballroom and the pool table in the Billiard Room... That would be tough. For some rooms it would work great, for others not so much. As it is, on the 1996 edition, that d...

even if you can't tell what weapon your are being shown, the color should give it away immediately. Touche. But that doesn't necessarily help with what's in your own hand. But it doesn't really matter. It looks good, it just took me longer to adjust to that concept than the suspects, which I was su...

To be perfectly honest, I am not yet sure what I think of them. I think the concept is terrific, but it definitely makes them difficult to identify at a glance. However, yours is a somewhat different take on the 1996 edition, the 1997 Travel edition being the most featured use. Those pictures sort ...

I think the weapon cards should be left the way they are. ... Even if somebody did look at a card and mistaken the candlestick for a revolver, I'm sure if they stared long and hard enough, they will begin to get a clue. I think it's clear TheWhitePawn will do what he wants and I am confident he wil...

As for the monochrome, the suspects were monochromatic as well. The only difference is that each suspect was a different color. And that is a big difference. It makes the characters much easier to tell apart. With the weapons being all the same like that, it will be much harder to know which one is...

something to consider ... as you apply the "fade" as a design element to various aspects of the artwork, I really like the pool of light effect you have on the board center as well as the original backs of the cards (I like the new card back with the sandwiched fade as well though). But, I think it ...

And as for White, I love her so I'm definitely not changing a thing. I'm not saying change her, just reconsider whether she is the Head of House or Cook. I vote for the former. And to be clear I'm talking about the jacket and pearls. In the 2000 game, she is depicted in more typical collared domest...
