Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

A new theme skin would really be welcome during this pandemic quarantine.

Re: A new Clue Dvd release

Did you get it yet? Most likely it’s just a marketing series bundle, with other classic movies as part of the Collectors packaging. Kind of like the various bookshelf editions — essentially the same versions of the games with new packaging to appeal to a new audience. Sadly Paramount has put no mone...

Re: The Designs/Artwork of Clue

I really really wish someone would restart cataloguing each version like Michael used to here. I don’t want scans of all the silly themed versions, but it’d be nice to be able to quickly see the history of the evolving board. Well feel free: Here's the list! http://www.theartofmurder.com/forums/vie...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

A patent is a public filing. Things may be a bit different in the UK, but probably not. Patent filings in the USA are in the public domain by definition. The patent on Cluedo has long since expired, which is why the basic mechanics described in the patent can be appropriated by anyone. All Hasbro ha...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

I'd be more than happy if they flushed that change. I wouldn't have minded if they kept it around a little longer, but would have preferred they gave the room and overall board placement/design a little bit of an overhaul to actually make it work and look good. Maybe they should have just added a s...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

I love that board! Definitely getting it. Perhaps alongside with the Ghost of Mrs. White :) Ugh. But it’s a whole new play mechanic. All the rooms connect to each other, so no more rolling dice and just move from room to room? It doesn’t appear one can enter the center area to pass through either, ...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

Wait, is that Clue?!?!? I count at least 2 extra weapons too Edit: Yes, it appears it has 11 locations, 8 players, and 8 weapons. I'm not sure if it's an "official" Brazilian version or just a knock off, though... https://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-862118819-jogo-tabuleiro-detetive-3d-estrateg...

Re: The Ghost of Mrs White

So even though they have figurines for all the characters, they take the cheap route and go back to the basic pawns for the others? Ugh. And no Mrs.White card? So $12.99 for a white figurine? At least the board can be modified to take a new starting spot, and the Cards from the Guess Who hybrid shou...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

That’s mine. I think it was in a thread about insides fitting the outside, I’ll have a look when I get a chance. There’s several threads over the years about making the board match a real mansion design with some good contributions from many members ... and of course so many threads have been lost d...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Reason for board layout: Note the reassignment of rooms (hall vs. dining room) to match room layout map alignment. Even the stairs are present between the billiard room an library on he digital board. The stairs were later removed from the 2011 physical board layout, in the 2013 double-sided edition...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

Yeah, but none of them quite match up. And it's just weird that Hasbro would license the new character art with the old board layout. Seems like something most brands would avoid when marketing a streamlined product. Of course it’s been discussed! :wink: Unfortunately the site has been plagued by s...

Re: Clue w/ bathroom

When I was a kid, I always thought the Hall was redundant, because it was part of the hall system that connected the rooms. Now I understand the grand hall that these big English mansion estates have. But it still seems redundant. But it seems like they have tried to add an entrance in the two space...

Re: Clue w/ bathroom

Interesting that they’re promoting it with a “fan voted Room”. I still say this is the wrong kind of design for a first floor bathroom where there are no bedrooms. There should be a couch where the bathtub is, and the toilet should be in a closet. Then it would be a true powder room, something befit...

Re: Room Repository

I actually don’t mind a theatre in Tudor Mansion. I totally see Boddy having one in his home. Tea room is a good one. I was one of the few who actually liked the gym location and dumbbell as a weapon in DTS. It goes back to an old COLUMBO 60s/70s episode where the murder victim was killed in his ho...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

I don't know if you guys have seen this but at my local toy store, they have a poster for the Orchid Edition of Cluedo. Something seemed different compared to the board game but I realized what it was. Have you guys seen Dr. Orchid with a pink flower in her hair? You should take a pic and share it ...
