Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

If this is the last theme, or even if there’s just one more to fulfill the 10 they committed to from the start, it’s unlikely they’ll add additional content. It’s more likely we’ll see some cosmetic updates (playing pieces to match all of the artwork, retroactive theming of the corpse in each theme,...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

I hope they’re not rushing this one out like they did with the Egypt theme. Still not pleased that Meadowbrook was the only unique suspect token they designed for it (using a dark blue Scarlet for a Peacock token — really??).

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

I’d hope Gray is one of the remaining two. Of all the traditional suspects (everyone except the Sherlock-specific characters) he’s the only one without any themed options. :/

Re: Guess Who Clue, Hasbro mashups

Yeah, one of my friends insisted on setting up her board in a very organized order (as seen above). I’ve since randomized both boards for the exact reasons stated above. Granted, it does mean a little more time scanning the options in front of you, but that’s how Guess Who has always worked, so *shr...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

This could very well be the last theme we get. In one of the discussion threads on the game’s Steam community page, the developers stated they were committed to releasing 10 themes for Clue/Cluedo. If the Classic Mansion & suspects count as a theme, this next one will be number 10. Timing wise, this...

Re: Who from Marmalade's Cluedo has the most ludicrous attack pose?

Nurse Peach’s balletic attack is certainly high camp. From the same theme, Irene Adler’s reclining pose on the floor is just ... why?

Re: Guess Who Clue, Hasbro mashups

I might pick up a copy this afternoon. I’m very interested to see if the deck of cards (the larger ones you’d draw from & have to guess to win) form a complete deck (namely, are all 9 standard rooms accounted for). If so, all anyone needs is a set of colored pawns to match & a poison token from anot...

Re: First Mrs. White, then the Hall, is the Lead pipe next?

The answer the original question: I hope so. The poison should have been given full time status decades ago (like, from the beginning. What was Pratt/Waddington’s logic in dropping it after the patent was filed?). Hasbro can (and will) tinker with their classics as often as they see fit/want to. Now...

Guess Who Clue, Hasbro mashups

Didn’t see a post about this yet, so: Hasbro has launched another Target exclusive series of games. This time it’s mashups of their popular brands into some charming party games. Twister Scrabble. Jenga Monopoly. Of interest to us: Guess Who Clue . But look closely at the promo image & you’ll spot t...

Yes, I did! I’d forgotten I’d started a thread about before it ran its course (probably got lost in the shuffle with all the spam). It was, in short, absolutely pitch-perfect fantastic! I’m tired tonight, but in the morning I’ll dig out the few photos I snapped while I was there & provide some more ...

Not that I need to buy another copy of this, but has anyone else found this new edition in their local shops? I’ve only seen it on Amazon — none of my local big box & department stores are carrying anything except Clue Jr and a handful of copies of the square box edition (and my Target isn’t even ke...

I’m kicking myself a bit for not waiting a little longer & saving another $5. $10 is definitely a much more sensible price for this edi...

Most likely just the Canadian release from the last round of book-box vintage games. The English-French labeling is a bit of a giveaway there.

Re: Clue's 70th anniversary

Maybe bringing back Mrs. White?? :D I think Dr. Orchid is here for the long run, or at least another 5 — 10 years. What would be a really shining tribute for the 70th anniversary would be a single game with the current suspect lineup plus fresh depictions of the auxiliary characters from MD/Super C...

Re: Clue's 70th anniversary

I certainly hope so! They’ve marked every anniversary for Monopoly, and completely botched Clue(do)’s 60th by trying to “reinvent” the game. A brand new, truly deluxe edition would be most welcome (meaning not another rehash/mashup of the vintage editions and/or Franklin Mint editions. Something ACT...

Re: Which was the best mansion?

Ditto for Tudor Mansion. The exterior actually tries to match up with the interior (and mostly succeeds, I think), and I will never not love the expanded terrain & world building offered up in FX and Mysteries. Pushed further to pick a favorite depiction, I tip my hat to the board from the DVD game ...

Re: New Clue Dr. Orchid 2nd Edition with Card Revealing Mirror

My best guess at this point is that this will be marketed as a “deluxe” alternative to the small box edition, much like how Monopoly and Monopoly Electronic Banking are sold alongside each other in lieu of one replacing the other. And entirely for the reason you brought up: American consumers love t...

Re: New Clue Dr. Orchid 2nd Edition with Card Revealing Mirror

Revealing the solution to other players is as simple as turning the mirror towards them & holding down the button so it lights up. I can’t figure why the mirror seems so complex to you, though. It has 3 slots for 3 cards. Insert them in the order shown (the back has icons for Suspect, Weapon, and Ro...
