What is your single most favorite thing from any clue game?

Post by Murder by Death » Sat Mar 10, 2012 3:13 pm

Was just thinking about what my single most favorite aspect of any clue game I own, or don't own, would be, and thought it might be fun to see what single item others praised as well. It could be a favorite board, favorite room off a board, a particular suspect card, or collection of cards from a particular set, the box from a certain game, etc.

For me it has to come down to the tokens. That's the thing that makes Clue so much more fun for me than playing a simple deductive reasoning card game.

In particular, I really love the pewter counters/movers that come with the Dunhill/Geoffrey Parker edition, shaped like the original Cluedo suspect cards artwork. If I could only keep one of them for posterity it would be a hard choice. Maybe Miss Scarlett? If I could choose from any edition I don't own, it would likely be the same thing only in Sterling Silver, which was waaaaay out of my price range.

The second runner up would likely be from one of the original 1949 Clue/Cluedo weapons sets ... But thankfully I don't have to choose!

This Professor Plum card:

This was the Plum card in the first game I ever had, and I always imagine it in full detail whenever I hear someone mention Clue in real life.
Stop winking at me, you oversexed Frenchman!

I have to say the tokens for me too. The first game I ever got was the 50th Anniversary, and I loved the playing pieces. I honestly didn't hate the 2002 or the spinoffs either because I enjoyed the little figures you used.

I've always liked the Master Detective Rope. It is so detailed and represents the deadly aspect of the game perfectly.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?
