I really like it too. I'm wondering if I like it more than the green. I do too. But I'm having trouble figuring out the differences between these boards. If you look at the differences between the Restoration Hardware and Frontgate Monopoly and Scrabble editions, the RH are all $30 more than the Fr...

Just putting this info here for those looking to purchase the Franklin Mint reproduction: The Frontgate mail-order edition . About $30 cheaper, it appears to be identical to the Restoration Hardware edition, with a different colored board and different faux-leather parts-container. It also claims to...

I think you are right. The lighting in his photos is warm creating an illusion between her dress and the background being different. What a really odd change.

Actually no... I only have the 2005 and it definitely isn't off white. Check your actual copyright date on the box. I believe there was a 2005, 2007 & the newly updated one with a new cover 2009. I have a sneaking suspicion the change occurred with the 2007 edition. If not then perhaps it has to do...

No, I mean the actual Nostalgia edition Cluedo: The Library edition from Target has a pure white background,the color bars at the the top and bottom of each card have almost been doubled in size Ah, well the Cluedo Edition (2007?) appears to be identical packaged to the 2002 US Clue edition in the ...

OMG! That's not the Premier Edition!... Someone else is selling a Franklin Mint Reproduction. I hope the pieces are nicer... I believe it is this Frontgate mail-order edition . Meaning that eBay auction is Waaaaaay overpriced. As well as the Restoration Hardware version (if they truly are the same)...

The Target library game set is basically a spin-off of the Nostalgia game series (Except that the Nostalgia game had MUCH better cards). You mean the blonde square box ? A friend gave me that one, also an exclusive to Target I believe and was the 1963 edition as well. But how were the cards MUCH be...

Good news. I just got back from Target and the updated vintage wood edition has a copyright date of 2009. Plus the inspection tag is dated 8/2009 indicating that it was recently manufactured. It was also clearly manufactured by Hasbro, but has a sticker indicating it is exclusive to Target. So it wo...

Target is too. In fact, they just redesigned the cover of their game, so chances are that they'll continue to sell it. Do you mean THIS ONE ? Does Target actually make that one? Or is it part of the Hasbro bookshelf collection? In which case, Hasbro is continuing to make it, or this is merely old s...

This is truly one of the more unique treatments any board game has ever gotten anywhere. But when I stumbled across it, not only was I delighted by the fantastic URL ...

Re: 1992 Clue!

1992 White is probably tied for second place with 2000 White (both of which follow 1996) in my book. See this is where you have to clarify ... do you mean the 1996 UK, or US version? Because there is no 2000 US edition, and the two '96 editions are VERY different. I'm guessing US, because it is the...

Are you sure? Actually no. I think I may have been thinking I saw it, when it was the Monopoly set which the Danbury Mint also produces for several hundred less. I'm sure you're right. Either way, that means only Geoffrey Parker and Restoration Hardware are actively producing the classic games as f...

I would much more prefer Winning Moves. Agreed. USA was just an example. But there definitely needs to be a reasonably priced classic edition by someone. Then again, perhaps that's why Hasbro is still licensing the high end editions, because they don't compete with DTS. EDIT: I just went to the Fra...

maybe bad Clue games are just that for Hasbro: a way of getting their brand out there. I suppose. But I was just looking at the Hasbro website Monopoly offerings. Never has there been so many different Monopoly variants. But most importantly, they still offer the classic Monopoly game in both tradi...

isn't Mrs. White doing her job by returning the chairs and cleaning off the table? ... I think it's kind of silly to move chairs just because they're not being used to begin with.

Remember Clue the movie, there were only 7 seats at the table. 3 on each side and one on the kitchen end of the table. There w...

But I need to think of a way to incorperate actual Latin translating/ syntax/ vocabulary into the game. I hate to say it but perhaps you want to incorporate some of the elements of the Discover the secrets game. Have spaces that require the players to translate "clues" in order to get the opportuni...
