Found this on an eBay listing. I've never seen the cards with a white border before. Has anyone else?

Strange. It looks like they might be bootlegged to me... :?

Really. Do you have just a regular 2002 Clue?

Perhaps they are using cheaper material?

I like the borders. Makes the cards look cleaner.
Was it Miss Scarlet with the Candlestick in the Ballroom? Yes... yes it was.

Definitely, though I prefer the UK's black borders.

Me too. I also like how they removed the words "Tudor Mansion." I think it clutters up the picture.

I agree with both of you. While, I don't think much can improve the 2003 cards, the UK certainly executed them more stylishly.

Well, I think my cards are not very good. The Mrs. White card has been more faded than any other card, thus making it marked.
