The classic detective game! In Clue, players move from room to room in a mansion to solve the mystery of: who done it, with what, and where? Players are dealt character, weapon, and location cards after the top card from each card type is secretly placed in the confidential file in the middle of the board. Players must move to a room and then make an accusation against a character saying they did it in that room with a specific weapon. The player to the left must show one of any cards accused to the accuser if in that player's hand. Through deductive reasoning each player must figure out which character, weapon, and location are in the secret file. To do this, each player must uncover what cards are in other players hands by making more and more accusations. Once a player knows what cards the other players are holding, they will know what cards are in the secret file. A great game for those who enjoy reasoning and thinking things out.
Traditional Clue board game with modernized graphics in the "Mansion" board and a boardwalk/beach scene on the opposite side of the board. Gameplay has been updated as well with the "Boardwalk" scene incorporating 3 red cards which are placed in assigned spots on the board for players to obtain. These cards allow special plays:
1. Take a card from each player, mark it on your clue sheet, and return to players.
2. Choose a player who must secretly show you two cards.
3. For the rest of the game, you may ask one additional question every time you ask a CLUE question.
The 2013 version also places 3 cards face up for all players to see at the beginning of the game in 4 and 6 player games.
