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...

I picked up a copy of the 1956 US Clue board game as well as the 1965 Cluedo edition. Both had a nice set of instructions which I will include here for comparison. Links are included for the full-sized images. From Cluedo 1965 edition, copyright 1949. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2635/4180680592_1...

I was basing it off the Patent version... not every detail from it...The game play is very fun... Of course ... not having actually played the game remotely close to this way, I would be curious to know whether strict adherence to Pratt's rules would take some of the fun out of the game or make it ...

Some observations

Great idea of yours! Was just thinking I might take this on myself when I came across your thread. Having recently read this article about Anthony Pratt, and reading this original patent document , I have a few observations about your version: 1) Pratt evidently called his game "Murder!" Therefore, ...

yes, that's brilliant. Of course it means you have to stick with that retro 1963 style for the rooms and weapons as well, but I'd like to see a Cluedo game with that kind of sophisticated look ... the original 63 game looks too much like a kids cartoon, rather than a pop adult game.

Well. I guess there's your 60th Anniversary edition! LOL

Hey CluedoKid, did you happen to read this article, or did you write it? ;-)

but Scrabble never gets any new versions. Behind Monopoly, I'd be willing to bet that Clue/Cluedo had the most spin-offs/special editions of any game. And Monopoly has only creeped up in recent years. Based on this link alone , I have a hard time believing Scrabble players are lacking for any new e...

Latest update: Doesn't look like there will be an anniversary edition of the game. Just an increased awareness to likely compel purchases of their new game. Nothing close to the treatment Scrabble received last year for its 60th Anniversary with the $20,000 Diamond Edition celebrity charity launch ....
