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 ...

And regarding the 9-9-8 combo, this is a bit tricky, but you see, one of these people are going to be murdered. ...I'm considering adding a Ballom though. I'm a bit confused ... you added a ball room, but there are still 8 rooms? Also, I'm with Cluedo kid ... I understand one of the guests will be ...

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?...

Have you opened the box? I went to target but was unable to fund it. I would love pictures if that is possible. No. I was waiting on Michael to open his and take pictures ...

I just noticed that in addition to using the classic rules (with two dice), there are both suspect tokens (presumably inedible) and two sets of suspect chocolates. When suggestions are made, a chocolate weapon and a chocolate suspect are placed in the room. The player token presumably remains where ...

Okay. Sorry, I didn't mean to be sarcastic or offend you. No offense at all. I completely understand your point. Ultimately stuff like this doesn't matter and should never be anything more than a pleasant diversion. I liken this to the secret passage thread. One doesn't need to know how the secret ...

I think you're looking too much into it, Murder by Death. It's just a movie not a deep, multi-layered literary masterpiece. Nope, just having a little fun with my theory. It took me all of 5 minutes to reason through it and either way, does not in detract from my enjoyment of the film n the least. ...

Yes, I think we can be assured that the board game does not exist within the movie and it's as simple as that. Meh. Where's the fun in that? Leave me out of the "we" in your statement. For it to be Clue for me, the characters must have been born with the names Mustard, Plum, etc. Of course you are ...

Cluedo as Art

TheWhitePawn mentioned using the Premiere edition as a display piece end-table. Certainly the Franklin Mint edition was as close to art as the game has come. But what about simply taking elements of the game and displaying them, from tokens, to cards. Found this on the internet. I think it really wo...

A possible hole-filler for the whole I like that idea. Perhaps he simply had to secret her out of the house when his now ex-wife, or other girlfriend arrived unexpectedly. We all know she "worked" for him afterall. But the real question for me is, do you view each ending as its own fictional univer...

Who's to say that Miss Scarlet in the board game is really Miss Scarlet? ... It's like asking how Anthony Pratt invented the names and weapons. ... I do think one of the suspects would've made a reference to it. A valid argument. There is certainly nothing wrong with seeing the movie that way, or t...

Understand? Yes I understand. But this is a slightly different situation. If this movie took place in 1932 in an English manor, when the Cluedo game did not exist, then the aliases might have been a random collection of names appropriate to British culture at the time, but still invokes some curios...

Also, considering how the film takes place in America, the game would probably be Clue, if it were present at all.... I'm not sure how popular the game would have been among adults who had no children. It had only been out a few years, the suspects probably wouldn't know that their aliases were bas...

Otherwise... handle it all you want and enjoy a piece of the past. So it is lead. Probably best not used when played with small children. I wonder how many young victims the game claimed in its early history? But what an odd attention to detail. The tokens look like the UK versions. Could Parker Br...

Yes, but with classic Clue rules, characters (sans titles) and (presumably) weapons. Very odd.

The only problem I have with the Cluedos is that it's practically the exact same for ever so long. And why is that? I mean even after the movie came out, it took Waddintons another 10 years to do what Parker Bros. had more or less been doing from the start, but resumed in earnest in 1986. Is this b...

I have read that the 1949 edition contained an actual lead pipe. I just picked up a 1956 edition set with the pliable pipe token and wondered, is this actually made from lead? If it is actually lead, would there be any toxicity concerns from simply handling it? Aside from chocking, what if a child i...

So do you think the clue board would fit on the monopoly table? What did you end up doing? I just came across this listing on eBay for a Monopoly set with some really good pictures of the table.
