That was really cool. Thanks for making it and showing it to us. I think someone should do a recent adaption of the game.

That was FANTASTIC! I found the opening segment, on the game's history and game development evolution, to be particularly interesting.

Was also great to see almost all of the cast still active and talking about the experience. It's clear they had a lot of fun filming it. Mara Clark hasn't aged a bit!

Thank you for sharing :)

Did anyone else catch the various character descriptions in the call sheet? Dr. Brown, Nurse Peach? Fun stuff.

I have to rewatch all of Clue 2 just to watch it knowing Miss Scarlet is pregnant.

Who Did It? Clue VCR Facebook Page

Post by akatimo » Mon Jun 15, 2015 1:58 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm so glad you all have been digging the film. It was such a blast to make.

I just wanted to let you know that I just made a new Facebook page for the film. We began submitting to festivals and local access stations, so we'll be posting the places, channels and times the film will screen or air.

https://www.facebook.com/WhoDidItClueVCR

The best part though, I'm going to be releasing rare photos, marketing materials, and videos throughout the year. So be sure to like the page and check back often.

Also, anyone who has any festival recommendations, or would like to be a sponsor for their city's PEG Cable Access, please don't hesitate to contact me and I'll send you a DVD (for cable access) to submit.

Hey everyone,

I just posted the first of many special features to accompany Who Did It? The Clue VCR Game.

Here is the 1985 Parker Brothers VCR Game Overview - It's what I used to start the film, but here it is in full!

I guess that's what Miss Scarlet's outfits looked a little oversized in the 2nd game, that revolver patterned coat in Paris and the apron in Rangoon.

Do you by chance have the Evening advert in full? The one with, "Was it Madame Rose with the Knife in the Kitchen? *out of my way! out of my way!* M. Brunette with the Revolver in the Grand Hall...etc."

This was a lot of fun to watch, thank you! Great seeing the cast today, and what they look like now. I found it amusing how many of them mentioned that they had difficulty playing the actual game. I was 4 when it first came out and I never really did understand it. I used to just watch the videos over and over and whenever Didit or Pry said "And now you may play a round of cards" I'd shuffle the cards in my hands and say aloud "Cards, cards, cards" and thus consider myself as having played the round. :wink:

How fantastic! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this with us. I just dusted off my copy of the first game last week to play with my roommates. Yes, actually playing the game is a bit complex, but it still ranks very high on my list of best adaptations.

Now, who among us is tech-savvy enough to convert their tapes into a DVD with full menus for each chapter & all that? I doubt I'm the only collector worried about age & overuse breaking my tapes...
