I finally saw it in person at my nearby K-mart. The box was a lot bigger than I expected it to be. It's $30 there. Do you think I should try finding it at a different store, or wait until the Christmas sales hit and ask for/buy it then?

I would order it online, but my parents control all of the credit cards and don't like me shopping online unless I have a gift card/certificate.

I haven't found it less than $35.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I haven't seen the DVD game anywhere but I haven't been anywhere much. I'm wondering if it's worth my investment. I hate how they changed murder to petty theift.

Although I haven't played the game, it does look interesting. Mine was on sale for $30.00, so not much of a discount, but still, it's not $35.00.

I got it! I work at Wal-Mart, which gives me a bit of an advantage . . . and it came up in the store today! For 26.99! And with my employee 10 % discount . . . well my birthday present to myself is ruined (October first), but I am in paradise. Happy Clue day to me. Happy Clue day to me. Welcome Rusty & Mrs. Meadow-Brook, happy Clue day to me.

I hope you enjoy it, I just played it with my friends, and it was so much fun. It takes a while, but it's so much more interesting than regular Clue, I must admit. It's a refreshing change of pace. Now, if it were only "Who Killed Mr. Boddy, Where, With What, What did they steal, and When?" but that would probably take FOREVER to finish, and it'd be a lot of cards.

Also, I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but there are 10 mysteries, not 12 as previously mentioned. It must have been a mistake in the article.

I finally got to play a rounds this weekend. I love the changes and the randomness that the DVD provides. But some of the clues are VERY ambiguous and open to interpretation. It wasn't until the end of the game that all of us were like, "oh, I didn't even realize that clue meant that." Also, the process of making an accusation takes FOREVER. Especially when something is wrong and many people are accussing in a row. Ugh. I don't know how it is with only a couple players, but with five, the game dragged on so much that even I was ready to just call it quits. I didn't care who won, as long as somebody did and we could put the game away.

I got this like 3 months ago, and I haven't played it. I'm thinking of returning it to Toys r Us

I have to agree with Cluedokid. Frankly, I'm getting tired of this Clue format, I want it to go back to the sophiscated yet mysterious game of Clue. I want them to change their look. I like the setting of the 1920's but change the look of the suspects, they're starting to be cartoonish.

Perhaps a version in B&W would be good. If they have to make another overpriced spinoff, I've lost my faith in Clue. :(

Perhaps a 1930's noir edition? B?W of course with the coloured accents of the characters.


Going cartoonish with the suspects is a little tricky. It has to be done a certainway having perhaps a macabre, campy feel. They just didn't do it right for 2003.

Which is why they shouldn't be cartoonish at all. An unsolved murder with the usual suspects shouldn't be campy.

Ick, I also didn't care much for the blandness and lack of elegance.


Perhaps something more haunting because murders are creepy and it would be good to develop a creepy atmopshere for the next game

Exactly. This format has gone to the dogs and people like you and I are getting tired of it. Hasbro's just making these PC spinoffs for the witty bitty little children.

Hasbro has forgot what Clue Jr. is for :roll:

When the 2003 edition came out, it was nice, because it was set at night, and had fires glowing onto the rooms and some dark corners, but they weren't creepy enough to be an old creaking country mansion.

They could of at least let the artwork reach the board and weapons but no, all they did was reuse a board and weapons.


Just wait till TAOM Clue is made, garenteed to bring back what Clue really is.
