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? The rooms look great. The fact that yours are not perfect squares, or rotated exactly 45 deg. like Super Sleuth give it ...

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...

Well... I updated Mustard. Perfect! But, I'm still not sold on White. She does not look like the "help", except for perhaps the Governess, or Housekeeper (as in head of house/staff to which the butler, cook and all other staff report). I find it less believable that she is as elegantly attired as t...

Had you conceptualized the way the exterior of the house might look? Actually yes... Well I commend you. That makes you one of the few in Cluedo history! LOL It amazes me that especially with the original 1949 game, that a matching exterior was never conceived for a game that takes place in a house...

On the other hand there isn't alot of options for objects to hold, so I decided to edit out the hand altogether. Yes, I think you have to take a Photoshop approach to finalize these characters, otherwise they all turn out like CluedoKid's set. It looks nice, but they have the same pose which is a b...

it's interesting that you stated that you like the 2002 board more. I thought I would too since the wood seems to match better than the stone... but I think the sheer darkness of the stone really brings out the vibrant colors within the game, whereas the parquet of 2002 muted them. My sentiments ex...

The 2002 game is ugly - U - G - L - Y. The characters here are much more sleek and sophisticated than those cartoony abstract blobs from 2002 game. Also, I couldn't disagree more with you sunny window board comment. No disagreement about every other aspect of the 2002 game. But the board is my favo...

everything that I have done is completely created from scratch in Photoshop. It's just in a similar style to the 2002 board. That's what I meant, inspired by the 2002 board. That's the most suitable look for Clue. Looking at some of those earlier boards with sunny light bathing the rooms through th...

the room is simply where the Boddy was found. And since there are 2 staircases leading to the cellar with no blood or drag marks, it can be assumed that the Boddy was tossed there after the murder... giving the suspects a reason to try to find the actual murder location. If the central room can be ...

Basing your artwork on the 2002 board is the best. I think it is my favorite since for the first time it properly addressed the mood in Tudor Close. It should be night, dark and gloomy, with a hint of mystery in the air, the windows casting light and gloomy shadows out into the isolated estate groun...

Was in Barnes & Nobel and discovered they seem to be exclusively selling the 2006 Bookshelf version of classic Clue which uses the 2002 edition artwork. The copyright on the box is clearly 2006, so not sure if this is a newly manufactured edition or if it is just old stock being liquidated. They are...
