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 ....

I have to check on my DVD, but sometimes titles are changed for the theatrical release but remain the original on the DVD version. Interesting ... that would make sense from the DVD point of view, whereas they had to manufacture different reels anyway for distribution so why not a localized set. Al...

The movie has always been called Cluedo in France ...

Now does this make ANY sense? This appears to be the French DVD case. Now seriously, these two countries are 20 miles apart. The game is no less identified by the name Cluedo in the UK. Yet for some reason Paramount chose not to offer the custom branded film there, the home country of origin! Is the...

So I calculated the dimensions and I'm pretty sure the Hall tiles are 24" square (4, 12" tiles) separated by 4" thick boarders. This was in part derived by looking at shoe sizes against the tiles. So unless the men all had size 9 shoes, then they used common 12" tiles throughout the set. Plus, those...

Re: Book

I have been trying to say here for some time that the inside doesn't match the outside It's hard to imagine anyone disputing that. It's a movie set and they ultimately did what was necessary cinematically. The upstairs is the perfect example: In order for the attic to be where it was depicted, it w...

Wow. At the risk of bumping this thread ... what happened to this project? Considering 2010 is the 25th Anniversary, this would be a good time to finish this game. You really have to wonder why Parker Brothers didn't put out a version of the game to match the movie, especially considering it was a C...

The clear choice of which Clue Club kid to include: Young Peter Plum is the only one who is in every Clue Jr. game. The rest change their names or their gender or their ethnicity.

Re: Clue in 5 Years Time

There's nothing wrong with honesty. I just read the original Variety article announcing the new Clue movie developed by Gore Verbinski and Hasbro.

Catch my drift? I'd have to be pretty obtuse to miss it ... Certainly that was not the point I was making. As to your point, artistic license can go too far.

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 ...
