Unplaceable Items

Some pieces of information are official, but as they were not given a specific date or a clear enough reference point, they cannot be placed in the timeline. Those items will be addressed here.

The years Mr. Boddy was studying anthropology

The birthdates of Mrs. White's 3 brothers and sisters

The year Mrs. White moved from Scotland to England

The year Mrs. White married Winslow White

The year Captain Mustard (Col. Mustard's father) was killed

The year Col. Mustard is transferred to a signals unit in the Royal Engineers after an incident where an enlisted man got shot

The year Chauncey Plum (Prof. Plum's father) died at sea, causing Prof. Plum and Celeste Plum to return to England

The year Prof. Plum graduated from Oxford

The year Prof. Plum got a university appointment as Professor of Ancient Mid-Eastern Culture

The year Prof. Plum travelled back to Egypt to find one of his father's old business partners, only to find that he had died and sold all of his belongings to Sir Hugh Black

The year Prof. Plum returned to England and met Sir Hugh Black, which led to funded archaeological expeditions in Egypt

The year Prof. Plum published his controversial paper

The year Miss Peach moved to London

Discrepencies

As with any continuity, sometimes there will be chronological errors. Those errors will be addressed here.


The newspapers on both the Clue and Clue FX boxes give the date as Monday, June 7, 1926.

On Hasbro's Clue website, Sir Hugh Black's death year is given as 1918, but on the same page it says that he dies when he's 50 and at the start of WWI, which would make it 1914.

In both Clue and Clue Mysteries, Miss Scarlet's age is listed as 25, even though Clue Mysteries takes place at least a year before Clue.

Clue DVD takes place between September 1925 and May 1926 (the cover of the instruction booklet confirms it), which would make "The Last Straw" take place in May. However, in "The Last Straw" Inspector Brown says the events are taking place a week before Mr. Boddy's birthday, and if it took place in May it would take place almost 3 weeks before his birthday at the least.

This is amazing, piecing all of this together. It’s a shame it was taken down when this must have taken real dedication to map out.

You tellin' me. I'm rather prudish by nature and have always had the mature filter turned on.
I've just had my best-liked post banned by algorithm. I protested it, but my appeal was rejected and now it is hidden.

The kicker? The post was a bunch of screenshots from a music video, all depicting artworks. I specifically made that to increase art awareness. :shock:
To add insult to injury I got quite a derogative standard e-mail from Tumblr.

Interesting approach to having the murder take place in the year 2026. It was quite interesting to me imagining characters like Prof Plum and Dr Orchid to be younger me, suspected of murder 7 years in the future. It does go to show how timeless Clue can be with a bit of tweaking to the characters without needing to redefine them very much.

The way I see Clue is in a more fluid state. Characters like Miss Peach, Sgt. Grey, Lady Lavender, Rusty Nayler, etc can fade in and out of existence without explanation depending on the setting which can be repeatedly reset. I'm currently working on a fan fiction using the 10 suspects from Clue Master Detective to recreate the plot of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, changing the original title from Ten Little Indians to Ten Little Suspects. Rusty Nayler makes a cameo in the beginning, followed by Dr. Orchid and Mr Ashe the butler being discussed by the main cast. They have all gathered at Tudor Mansion for the reading of Mr Boddy's will, and soon find themselves stranded on the estate when a storm washes away the bridge similar to the Clue VHS game. One by the one they're killed off, with everyone frantically accusing each other of being the murderer and arguing over the motive for wanting everyone present to be killed. Each Clue suspect replaces a character from And Then There Were None being murdered in the same order hitting the similar beats to Agatha Christie's story. The sad part about this is that in finding the perfect Clue suspect to replace each character, some of my favorite Clue characters are killed off sooner than I'd like them to be in the story, but the whole premise is melding the two together without completely changing it so I'm just going to have to suck it up. Although I have taken some creative liberty with the romance subplot. Instead of Philip Lombard (Mr Green) and Vera Claythorne (Miss Peach) becoming romantically involved, I swapped out Vera with Dr. Armstrong (Prof Plum).

Outwardly I can be a bit prudish but try to remain open and respectful of those who are more unabashedly proud to share adult content. I'll admit though that privately I did use Tumblr to explore certain things that I wouldn't share with anyone else because doing would just be inappropriate. So it took away a resource of guilty pleasures for me. I didn't delete or abandon Tumblr but I find myself using it far less than I used to.

Oh, I looked it up and you're right. I thought it was originally Ten Little Indians. My first copy of the book that was printed before I was born used Indians. Well, either way the title of Ten Little _______ is politically incorrect whether using Indians or the N word. As you said, different times.

Alright, so I think I've worked it out. ClueParty takes place after Sir Hugh Black has been murdered and BEFORE John Boddy returns to Tudor Mansion. The victim is one Victor Madden (Matin? - I don't see any punny jokes with this name) who was Sir Hugh's soliciter and murdered at the reading of Sir Hugh Black's will (obvioulsly, at this time, John Boddy was named as custodian of the House and was sent for to return to Tudor Mansion).

So the broad events go like this:

-Sir Hugh dies
-ClueoParty
-Clue Mysteries
-ClueFX
-Clue DVD
-Clue

Now... All of the 2002-2007 expansions are actually PREQUELS... so what would a sequel have looked like? Obviously a remake of the VHS games would have been the easiest, but unfortunately those stories contradict the 2002-2007 time line in order to be salvagable. They would have to actually be remade in order to fit with this series of Clue games.

I've recently found the game Kill Dr. Lucky... What if it were set in the Cluedo world with all of the 2002-2007 suspects + Rose & Brunette trying to off... the Butler, Ashe! Afterall, Ashe has been a significant part of bringing each of the victims to justice (except Rose & Brunette, who could have their own motives) at LEAST one time over the course of CluedoParty, Clue Mysteries, ClueFX, and Clue DVD. This concept already brings together a significant number of locations and weapons as well as characters, so all 14 characters could be included (+ the soon to be dead Ashe), all locations from FX, DVD, and Master Detective, and all weapons from both SFX and Master Detective. Thoughts? I really wish Hasbro would make something like this!!!
