The biggest differences in the rules between CLUEDO and CLUE are/were: Thanks for the clarification. That's a lot of what I was looking for. Another set of differences, which are not particularly rules, but information I have discovered is that in early instructions it claims Dr. Black was found in...

The story, though, just seemed to drag on, rehashing the same facts over and over to the point it wasn't interesting. The multiple endings were a clever idea, but I don't like how there was no real way to solve the mystery. Having just read it myself, I would mostly agree with your assessment. Abov...

Re: Impossible Secret Passageways

Even if they did descend under the cellar, they would still need to go deeper than eachother so as to not intersect. like I said, the point of a secret pasageway is to act as a shortcut between the two places, but if the movie and game are correct, it would take much longer to get from one side of ...

Clue Classic

Anybody play the "Clue Classic" computer video game? I have a few questions/comments. It appears to be based on the 2002/2003 version of the game. I went online to see if there was a separate UK version with the Cluedo branding and Rev. Green character. I did not find one. However, I did find a Fren...

I just realized this after discovering this site and the numerous other editions I did not know even existed. I grew up with the 1972 US game edition and thanks to the art work and the room card for the Conservatory (which depicts sheet music on a pastel cloth background), I believed for years that ...

However, the game makes a very nice and unique end table :D The board itself IS really beautiful. Unless they changed it, I am 95% sure that the first edition didn't use plexiglass. I bet it makes a unique end table. :D The new ad definitely makes a point out of mentioning Plexiglass. I would not b...

The biggest problem for me and this edition begins with the Franklin Mint version. For what you get, it's bloody expensive. At the end of the day you're paying for little more than a wooden box. My first problem with the FM edition is the gold items in the room. A gold sarcophagus in the Lounge? Fin...

Nice, kind of the James Bond approach. Very good.

So, I'm thinking something like "Judge" Scarlett (scarlet robes). Clearly if your Col. Mustard is in the game, Scarlett doesn't have to be such a temptress. LOL

Are you saying you don't buy this woman as Col. Mustard?

Scarlett is the hardest one because she is the most feminine of all the characters, probably in part due to her name.

Cluedo Unixex Names

Anybody given any consideration about using the classic Cluedo names as both male or female? It seems to me that the male character's names could easily be used by female characters. There is no reason there could not be a female Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, and Reverend Green. Add to that the p...

With the entire zeppelin exploding, there would be no one left alive to discover the solution. Right, that's what I meant about the original game not making sense anyway.

I doubt Hasbro or the Parker Bros. have any intention of remaking a game that's been completely buried in the archives in the public's opinion. Ah.
