If what you say is true, that would mean that this takes places in 1914, Scarlett would be 13 years old. Yet we see her flirting with Green, who would be 43.

Let that sink in.

I don’t think it has to be IMMEDIATELY following Blacks death. Perhaps his will was declared due to international war issues? So it could be as late as 1920 I should think. Scarlet would be 20 (even 1918 she would be 18).

Well John Boddy returned to Tudor Mansion around 1918, that would make Scarlett 17 and Green 47. Better but still weird.

I guess Scarlett does like older men.

Where did the date for Boddy return come from? Is it mentioned somewhere?

Alright, so I think I've worked it out. ClueParty takes place after Sir Hugh Black has been murdered and BEFORE John Boddy returns to Tudor Mansion. The victim is one Victor Madden (Matin? - I don't see any punny jokes with this name)
Perhaps it's supposed to be like Marin since that's a shade of blue

Now... All of the 2002-2007 expansions are actually PREQUELS... so what would a sequel have looked like? Obviously a remake of the VHS games would have been the easiest, but unfortunately those stories contradict the 2002-2007 time line in order to be salvagable. They would have to actually be remade in order to fit with this series of Clue games.
Technically Clue the Card Game is the direct sequel since it takes place right after Mr. Boddy's murder and the suspect flees somewhere. However, it might not count since the artwork uses the 1996 model.

I've recently found the game Kill Dr. Lucky... What if it were set in the Cluedo world with all of the 2002-2007 suspects + Rose & Brunette trying to off... the Butler, Ashe! Afterall, Ashe has been a significant part of bringing each of the victims to justice (except Rose & Brunette, who could have their own motives) at LEAST one time over the course of CluedoParty, Clue Mysteries, ClueFX, and Clue DVD. This concept already brings together a significant number of locations and weapons as well as characters, so all 14 characters could be included (+ the soon to be dead Ashe), all locations from FX, DVD, and Master Detective, and all weapons from both SFX and Master Detective. Thoughts? I really wish Hasbro would make something like this!!!
Hasbro has so many assets with them that it's so frustrating when they do not use them to make a spin off

Ok, let’s see...

Boddy was born in 1896, and in 1914, he would be 18. He should have finished his schooling by then.

Children enter boarding school at age 8, and Boddy was adopted by Sir Hugh when he was 8.

School ends when children are 16 or 18.

So Boddy could have return in 1914 or after.

It takes 2 years to get a bachelor’s degree.
People can enter university at age 18 or 19.
Boddy could have return in 1920.

But it’s possible for Boddy to attend his uncle’s will reading between boarding school and university.

Boddy isn’t in CluedoParty at all!!! So he wasn't at his uncle's Will reading. The conclusion I reached was that he was away at school not really expecting much. As it turns out, the Will set up a series of Trusts with expenditures to our favourite suspects, but of course he wouldn’t have known that!

Also... I had no idea Marin was a shade of blue! Nice!

Ah! We’re re-playing Clue Mysteries. Miss Peach used to be a law clerk for a firm called Madden & Seine which handled Sir Hugh’s will before Miles Meadow-Brooke took over for it. So it must have been this Victor Madden which was the victim in CluedoParty. I love how detailed they were in these games!

Would it be possible to post the contents of Cluedo party on here if you wanted to? I'm sure it would help with reference

Which part? It’s got a LOT of cards. Each character gets 5-6 cards for each mystery plus cards for each of the rooms... plus the weapons have clues that would have to have colour scans. It’s the same backstory for both mysteries... I could try to rip the mp3 of that if that’s what you’re wanting.m. The instructions JUST tell you how to play.

But really, you should try to snag a copy!!! It’s well worth it!

Perhaps you can record the two mysteries that were included in the disc.

So... I’ve recently reached out to one of the game developers and she provided me with some interesting info... the Cluedo Party game is set on March 27, 1924... no idea why Sir Hugh’s will would be read so late or where the heck Mr Boddy/Dr. Black is! Interesting!!! Thanks

It took nearly 10 years to read a will!!! Does Sir Hugh hate his own nephew or what?!

LOL!

Actually, I wonder where Sir Hugh's death as November 11, 1914 came from? The bio says it was "shortly before" WWI started... I wonder if he died on March 27, 1914 (the war started in July) and his will stipulated that part of it remain sealed for exactly 10 years and part remained sealed until John Boddy's 30th birthday? That might explain the random gathering of people in March 1924 as well as the fact that at least big parts of the will are still unread in Clue Mysteries...

Ok, I've been doing a little math to find when Mrs. White left Scotland and married Winslow.

Reading White's bio, she seems to be the eldest, making her three other siblings younger than 16.

Let's say the youngest is a one-year-old.
Most people become an adult at age 18.
Blanche's parents both died around 1878, and Blanche was 16 at the time.
1878+17=1895

Blanche must have left to England around 1895, at age 34.
As for her marriage to Winslow White, must have been between 1896 and 1900.
