Japanese Clue Game

Post by Michael » Thu Jun 23, 2005 7:59 pm

So I looked all over Japan with no luck, but I finally found a Japanese Clue game online. There isn't much information, but I ordered it and will post the details when it arrives.

How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!

It arrived today which was a nice surprise considering that I had forgotten all about it!

It appears to be another "Catch the Thief" game, but has a board set up in the traditional fashion with a few changes (for instance, instead of the Billiard Room, there is a Collections Room). There are also 13 playable characters - who are not of the six suspects.

The artwork is quite bold.

isn't it called anime style or something?

I think that type of art is so untasteful and too cartoony. At least our cartoon Clue versions [ie 2002 and FX] have a realistic appeal to them
