Apparently they snuck one by me. This has been available since the last week of August. If anyone can post a picture, it's on Amazon. Thanks.

:lol: They're reusing tokens from their Ultimate Monopoly game! This is just like what they're doing for Millenial Monopoly, Monopoly Socalism, and now Ms. Monopoly. They must have a bunch of tokens left over

Ugh. Certain franchises should only be sold under the Cluedo brand — notably British TV shows, like Sherlock, Dr. Who, and Downtown Abbey. It’s really time to merge the clue/Cluedo branding schemes now that Hasbro owns both. DA has been available as a Cluedo Edition for some time now sold in the US as well. Other than new artwork, what else has changed here?

The mystery.
In the original Cluedo game, you're trying to solve the murder of Thomas Barrow.

In the new one, someone stole something within the house.
It's like Clue DVD or Clue Tower of Terror.

Premise is iffy - why would Lord Grantham need to be stealing bow-ties and typewriters?

The spin-off versions of Cluedo irk me because they're so badly thought out with terrible choices.

I still think the Midsomer Murders version is awful beyond belief! I know Copyright is involved but it should've been way better!!
