Thanks for putting this up Michael. But after looking at it, there is really no reason anyone has to play this as an art theft, other than the silly (and complicated) set-up story presented on the box. Played as regular Clue, you have a suspect, a weapon and a location. Surely inventive kids will co...

Nice work. And I love the new signature banner – very classic Cluedo with the pawns and weapons. Looks great. Clean, simple, Clue.

Eileen Brennan all the way!! I would have to agree with that. It was a comedy and she made me laugh unexpectedly with almost every line. Behind her would be Tim Curry who turned in one of his better performances here, followed by Kahn, who never disappoints, but White was not the kind of character ...

Interesting, but HOW could that have really been better than all the other entries?! My sentiments exactly. But read some of the runners up and you will see, it is NOT better than the others. Just more in line with Hasbro's marketing goals. Given that all 5 of the others are mostly better written a...

Was there a solution to that story MBD? Yes. For the sake of others who want to read it, the solution is in the last paragraph, but makes absolutely no sense unless you read and follow the entire story. And like Discover the Secrets is not based on the original game. TO ALL: The other 5 runners up,...

What I've read of that story, it wasn't that good. It wasn't so bad as a story, but it really didn't evoke what I think of from a Cluedo story. It seemed to be about a group of 20-30-somethings, sort of young and edgy, playing drinking games with Cluedo. Not the first thing that comes to mind when ...

Here is the winning entry: His prize was £500 and the £3,500 Geoffrey Parker Bespoke edition of Cluedo (that should comfort a few of the forum members who didn't enter). The runners-up fared MUCH worse however as they all received copies of "Discover The Secrets". E Tu Times? Well it was a contes...

Is the lead pipe item from editions such as Super Cluedo Challenge poisonous/dangerous at all? :o Good question. I would think by the 80's the UK would have passed laws restricting lead in products as the US did in the 1970s. ALSO: the 1956 weapons are all MUCH larger than the current weapons. I ac...

LOL, Niteshade007, I'm with you. But in this case, it is a reputable food company that has licensed the game from Hasbro. My only problem with it at all is that in the US, it is some generic milk chocolate whereas in Canada and Europe it appears to be fine Belgian chocolates made by a known confecti...

Looks there's both the Pistol and Poison, but no dumbbell (Thank God). It looks like, Ax, Bat, Candlestick, Knife, Pistol & Poison. At least the Ax and Poison have been used before. But seriously, why would they have an Ax in a Hollywood hills mansion anyway? I don't mind the bat so much, but the a...

Here's yet another one, that is extremely loud.

On a side note, where in target did you find this? In the game section? It's in the holiday section, over by the trees and lights. There are several aisles near it with tons of Christmas candy and food gifts. They were not easy to find in my store even then, they were down low under a display table...

Well, in the US the biggest shopping day of the year: Black Friday (the 4th Friday in November) is upon us. This corresponds closely with the UKs busiest shopping day as well, around the first week of December. Sadly, if Hasbro was going to do anything for the 60th Anniversary, it most likely would ...

This game is impossible to find now. Very sad. I can't imagine why Hasbro would not want to keep their product on the shelves along with other murder mystery party kits, even if it didn't sell as well. I've played a few "How To Host A Murder" games which were loads of fun, but I can only imagine how...

And LOOK AT THIS ONE ... it's a Belgian Chocolate Edition from Laura Secord, sold by a Canadian company for $20. Somehow I think we're getting short changed at Target. Then again, it's only $10. That's quite a spread even with the exchange rate. Wonder how much lead pipe is in the Target chocolates?...
