Re: What decade were you born in?

So far, the 1980s are leading 2000-2009 by 2-to-1.

Anybody else want to chime in with a vote?

Re: Wine Charms & Coasters

Not really for sale or trade, but I saw this how-to and thought I might give it a try. Anyone done this? https://www.emilygraceking.com/blog/clue-drink-markers-and-coasters-diy Nope. Besides, I'd prefer to OWN a set of the character figures, not use them to make "wine glass charms". (I also don't n...

Re: New Cluedo Jr. Game?

The broken toy idea does seem more similar to investigating a murder than the missing cake does, but it raises some questions about the scenario - this version of Cluedo Junior has the regular suspects but chibified, rather than actual kid versions of them or kids with the same colour names. So is ...

Re: New Cluedo Jr. Game?

Using Google to translate to English, they come up with "Le mystère du jouet casse" is French for "The mystery of the broken toy". Yeah, looks like it is the case of the missing cake with a re-theming. Hasbro should have done a Mr Potato Head/Operation combo when they did the Mashup line. Or could ...

And if Mr. Boddy had married actress (Elizabeth) "Busy" Philipps https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Busy_Philipps, would she then be "Mrs. Busy Boddy"?

Mine's a mix of Reginald Boddy (A.E. Parker books) and John Boddy (2000s games)
"John Boddy" wouldn't have the middle name of "Brown", would it?

Re: Clue(do) Rules: Any "House Rules" or other variations when you play?

The only people I play Clue with are my cousins, mostly the younger ones. This is why we have that rule because sometimes they forget to note it. Then it really depends on how young / observant they are (or if there other challenging issues involved, such as learning or behavioral conditions). ----...

Re: Clue(do) Rules: Any "House Rules" or other variations when you play?

Actually, that's one rule I don't feel is necessary. If people are silly enough to ask about something they may already have been told, it shouldn't be another player's responsibility to tell them they already knew it. If a person already knows the player to the left has a certain room card, then t...

Re: New Year, Cheaper Clue

I don’t see the point of this version. This makes “Mystery Game” (That fake knock-off game Hasbro made with Parker Brothers name) look more expensive. And it cost $5! I'm assuming it was just to make sure there was a version of the Clue board game on the shelves of places like Walmart, etc. for thi...

Re: The "Murder, She Wrote" (TV and novels) thread

I watch her videos too! She has some great videos! And not just on ‘Murder,She Wrote’ - she also has a couple Clue/Cluedo videos lol And for a totally different side of Angela Lansbury, there's always the original (1962) version of the movie The Manchurian Candidate (which starred Frank Sinatra).

Re: Clue(do) Rules: Any "House Rules" or other variations when you play?

Don’t show players the same card over and over again. This more of a "House Rule", so we don't feel cheated out. Actually, that's one rule I don't feel is necessary.
