Detective Notepad Preferences

The current editions of the game have the Suspects, Weapons, and Locations all in alphabetical order. But is this the best way to present it? Previous editions have ordered the locations in a clockwise, or counterclockwise order, starting usually from the Hall. Suspects generally start with Scarlett...

Re: Cluedo Harry Potter collector edition 2019

How is this different than the 2011 DTS World of Harry Potter Harry Potter edition?

viewtopic.php?t=5298

What makes it a Collector edition? It's in a White Box instead of a Red or Blue one?

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Heck, I'd like them to deliver on the tropical island premise we anticipated by their marketing here ...

I'm a little sad that we're probably not going to get to see any licensed themes, as this would be the perfect opportunity to trot out the GILLIGAN'S ISLAND theme ...

Re: Cluedo Scouts Edition

Ha. Now that’s a sanitized game of Cluedo. Sadly just another cheap WinningMoves.UK edition.

Re: A new to-go game?

So I was on Instagram when I found this... It looks like a new to-go game. https://www.instagram.com/p/B5Af_iqpMxV/?igshid=y69t692h2oxk It doesn’t really seem all that portable. This isn’t likely a Game-to-Go so much as a regular edition in a custom tin. EDIT: after reading more about it in Peacock...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Remember this new chocolate tin edition that came out last year? http://www.theartofmurder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6894 I don’t know if anyone ever found one, but this is the kind of treatment this holiday edition deserves. In fact, why not make it a chocolate edition? So much effort executed...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

The Sleigh Room definitely looks like it could have been intended as a functional room at some point in the development of this game - if they are going to have a singular room as the start location, it makes more sense to me to have that room be the central one (it can be the denouncement room as ...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

RULES and MOVEMENT: Hasbro seems to be instituting a new rule with these editions -- you my stay in the room you're in after you roll the dice, and guess again in that location. Has that rule been implemented in any of the standard editions? Also, I have a few issues with the way the Sleigh Room and...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Darn, it is too bad that they went so cheap as this looks cute and like it would be a nice little holiday themed game - at least the flimsy cards means that it might be easy to make your own cards and slip in without it being too obvious, as I too would look at making the sleigh shed and the 'start...

Re: Clue North Pole Edition

Finally here’s a presentation of the whole game setup for play. I’ve included a Sharpie and a regular edition Clue card for size reference. The pawns are essentially full-sized, and don’t really fit on the start space, and are a bit too large for the spaces as well. The weapons are massive. The dice...

Note the weapons must be separated from the plastic frame, as well as the cards separated. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49066377463_4f7fd9fc97_o.jpg Note that even though there's one extra card space on the template, instead of giving an extr...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Murder by Death hit on a lot of the same criticisms I have for this one - if it’s just the boat, have it be a Mystery at Sea type situation, if it’s going to be Tropical then it would have been nice if it had used actual tropical locations. I have a feeling the tropical angle is in part to have som...

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Other than the views outside the yacht windows in the vignettes, this could be set anywhere ... like Alaska. Nobody is even in a swimsuit. I suppose the concession is that yachting is typically done in tropical, or warmer areas like the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. I’m not that impressed really. ...

I'm glad they did this. D&D gets updated a lot. And having new stuff as characters, weapons, and locations are good for it. specily considering this year we got a lot of updates with special editions like Simpsons and Scooby Doo.
Wait what Simpsons special edition?

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Depending on how they design the board, the bow could be the Hall or Ballroom, which comes to a point, and the two corner rooms on either side, could be island locations, like a beach and a dock. But I don’t see any other way to do the yacht without the other 7 rooms being on the yacht.
