The mystery you love to solve again and again is even more intense! Clue is back with a modern twist, and you have to find out who is responsible for murdering the host at a millionaire’s mansion or a boardwalk. Get the scoop on the updated rooms, weapons and guests, and start detecting! Was it Plum with the wrench in the bedroom? Or Green with the pistol in the kitchen? Narrow down what you know and make your accusation! If you’re right about the location, weapon and suspect, you’re the mystery winner!
We have not reviewed this game yet but it is a classic so you should not need us. The deduction genre has come a long way since the 70 years ago when this game originally came out, but this is still a solid title that boils down to a simple mechanism and can hold up today.

CLUE HOW TO PLAY
Shuffle up the player, weapon and room cards. While they are face down, take one of each and seal them into the culprit envelope. These are the details of the crime. Players take turns roll one 6-sided die to move around a board filled with 9 rooms.
When you enter a room, you can ask a question. Players are dealt cards after the murder is set and these questions help you find out what they are. If someone has it in their hand, you know it is not in the envelope and thus part of the crime. Eliminate until you figure it out.
