It's June 4, and we all what that means... It's Mr. Boddy's birthday! He would have been 122 years-old. It's also his 92 annverisery of his death. From the top of my head, I know the box art for the 2000 UK game has "June 6th 1926" as the date on The Daily Echo. So, for that matter, happy Cluedo-da...

I like to think that it all takes place in the 1920s because it was all so nicely explained in the early 2000s games with all the dates and backstories. But I do also think that it also takes place with modern marvels like televisions, computers, security systems, and video games like the book seri...

I'm surprised the 1910s or earlier isn't an option. I believe the Franklin Mint was going for that period. I forgot! I would've totally added it as an option if I'd been less hasty. don't know if Black/Boddy has ever been given an official title wherever his home happens to be located. But you're p...

You're absolutely right about the film industry in Britain, which sort-of slipped my mind. I was working on a cross-over idea where the film industry played a small part. I had a vivid idea about her as a silent film star who is having a hard time with the transition to talkies; that'd be a fun take...

When does the game take place?

I'm working on a bit of a Clue-adjacent project, and was looking up photographs from various eras to find people who look like the Cluedo characters as I might picture them in my head. For instance, I've always pictured Scarlett as an actress (I think she was described that way in the 1996 European ...

What is your favourite "era" for Clue to take place in? Are the characters interbellum archetypes (either 20's or 30's), or are they post-second world war characters from the era when the board game was first released (50's)? Or are they "whatever the time is when this edition of the game is releas...

I don't have a board with me, but the coloured cobblestone bases are 20mm in diameter.

I wanted to post a thread earlier, but it seems I was eaten because of "forbidden language"! My thoughts right now are on the Clue games that use miniatures/figures, particularly the various grey plastic ones, and potentially figuring out who made/designed them and if there are others in that style...
