I didn't know that.

So the Clue film might've been set in Florida or the Caribbean?

Yes. Look at the early draft concepts and scripts under the Stage & Screen tab on this site.

I don't know if anyone's seen this yet, but an escape room company in Utah made a Clue-themed escape room. Here's a family documenting their play-through of it:

Puzzle-wise and set-wise, I don't think it's anything to write home about. I don't know if the solution changes between resets, so it may be that the solution's ruined for anyone watching. Still, an interesting concept that could bear some further exploration, and the effort to blend the game's rules with escape puzzles is clearly there. Thoughts?

What version of the Limited Gift Edition are they playing? The rooms on the cards look tiny!

Does anyone know of a resource to view these early drafts of the movie? The only scripts I have found in full online are either shooting versions or transcripts.

Very interesting that the production had such a different physical setting (but not temporal) in mind.

I have all versions typed out in a spreadsheet that compares all the changes. It took me a solid week to do… At least! I’m not sure I’m willing to share it just yet though.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I found out that Pushing up Roses, the person who made the Clue video a while back is doing another video based on the movie.

I'm surprised TRU didn't go bust earlier.
Not to profit from so much forthcoming misery for others, but it looks like they're going to close all the US stores and most of the U.K. Stores soon. We should start looking for sales soon.

Toys R Us liquidation sales start on Thursday — all stores closed by May 15th. Some articles suggest the stores will close as soon as all merchandise is sold out.

Don't forget -- liquidation sales start tomorrow throughout the USA, if not worldwide.

Does anyone know why Barbara Streisand calls her two cloned dogs Miss Scarlett and Miss Violet? Does it have anything to do with Clue?

In honor of Easter, I'd like to see a Reverened Green themed game -- Murder at the Easter Sunrise Service. Dr. Black has been found dead in the cathedral after the conclusion of the Easter Sunrise Service. The usual cast of characters will be there dressed in their Easter best. Was he murdered in the rectory with the offering tray? Where was Miss Scarlett during the benediction? Today it's murder that was resurrected!

Over the last few months I've been finding images from the 2002 edition of Clue for whatever various uses you guys would have here :D
