We call it Cluedo in the UK, but I believe our friends over the water in the US call it Clue. It was designed in the UK, so looks like the US removed the ‘do’ rather than the UK adding it. For anyone that cared…
We’ve all yelled our theory about who did it, where they did it and what with right? Of course, I’m talking about the murder of millionaire Samuel Black! The poor chap has been murdered in his mansion and we, as players, have to search every room for clues, solve the murder and win the game.
If you haven’t played Cluedo, then you haven’t experienced board games completely! Seriously you haven’t! If, like me, you haven’t played Cluedo in a lot of years, it turns out there are quite a few versions now available. I’ve linked the original, which is available on Amazon below (Buying through that link does help the site). But I’ve also had a look at the other variants that are now available.
- Cluedo Downton Abbey – The classic game but redesigned with the tokens being the cast of downton, the tokens as well look to be inspired from the TV series.
- Cluedo Ghost of Mrs White – The twist in this Cluedo game is that if you roll a double you summon the ghost of Mrs White, the faithful mansion housekeeper. She may help you, or hinder you.
- Cluedo Grab n Go – This version of Cluedo is actually as it sounds. It’s a mobile and compact version thats easy to play on the go.
- Cluedo Junior – Can I say this is a simplified version of Cluedo? I feel like thats what it is, anyway, a kids version of the game.
I’ve linked where you can buy each of those games. I like the novelty idea that comes with the Cluedo Downton Abbey, never seen the TV program though, so it won’t be making my shopping list.
