About this deal

Cluedo was originally marketed as "The Great New Detective Game" upon its launch in 1949 in North America, and quickly made a deal to license "The Great New Sherlock Holmes Game" from the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle estate. There is no set board to this game, instead the board is made up of twelve tiles which are laid out randomly as players enter new rooms, to create a 4x3 grid.

However, in some cases it may be advantageous for a player to include one of their own cards in a suggestion. If a player chooses not to draw a Bonus card, they can continue moving without stopping on the space.This same year they also re-issued the smaller traditional 3D version first sold by Restoration Hardware. Coloured "start" spaces encircle the outer perimeter which correspond to each player's suspect token. The Clue title and theme were used in the 1986 US documentary Clue: Movies, Murders and Mystery which took a look at mystery-related pieces of media including Murder on the Orient Express; Murder, She Wrote; Sherlock Holmes and other television series and movies, as well as a look at the board game itself.

Alfred Hitchcock Edition Clue [70] (1999) is set on the sound stage where a number of Alfred Hitchcock’s films are being shot. Shortly thereafter, Pratt and his wife, Elva Pratt (1913–1990), who had helped design the game, presented it to Waddingtons' executive Norman Watson, who immediately purchased it and provided its trademark name of Cluedo (a play on "clue" and " Ludo", the Latin word for "I play" and the name of a popular board game based on Pachisi). In 2008, Cluedo: Discover the Secrets was created (with changes to board, gameplay and characters) as a modern spinoff. If they have one or more of the cards, they choose one to secretly reveal to you without letting the other players see.This means you’re suggesting that the Suspect used the Weapon you named to commit the crime in the Room with your pawn. Another standard edition produced by Winning Moves, combines design elements from its Limited Gift Edition and its 1949 re-issue edition, to produce a new traditional edition of the game using the original 6 suspects, weapons and 9 rooms – the first of its kind released since the introduction of the Discover The Secrets spin-off game in 2008. Travel Clue (1990) [27] More than just a miniaturised version of the standard game as offered for the UK Cluedo editions, the first US travel edition is played somewhat differently.

These sheets include a checklist of all of the suspects, rooms, and weapons so you’re able to easily mark what evidence is still in play and what you’ve already ruled out. It uses an hour-long VHS or Beta tape containing humorous scenes of the suspects interacting at Boddy Mansion shortly after Mr. Example: After moving into the Study, you might say, “I suggest that it was Colonel Mustard with the Lead Pipe in the Study. There is no longer an upstairs to the mansion; rather the rooms that were upstairs in the previous version are now located on the main floor.Various versions of the game were developed for Commodore 64, Atari ST, PC, Game Boy Advance, ZX Spectrum, Nintendo DS, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, CD-i, Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and Apple iPhone / iPod Touch.
