Whats with the feather duster and 'this room has been cleaned, nothing has happened here'??

A) In the theatre there is half a bucket of popcorn on the floor so it obviously hasnt been cleaned.

B) Just cos its been cleaned doesnt mean nothing happened there beforehand....if anything blood, fingerprints etc have been wiped off!

While the Clue: Cop Star game had been lacking also, I found it to be a much more satisfying mystery that didn't assume it's players were stupid.

Yeah, I mean to mystery fans 'this room has been cleaned' means that you need to get down on your knees and look for clues!

EDIT: And in response to CluedoKid, the Cop Star game was a masterpiece compared to this pile of rubbish. I think that the 2003 edition made the transition to the modern day period very well.

I think the only murderer here was the maker of this game. Only the killer would be so insistent that a room had been cleaned. Especially when it clearly hasn't.

I was thinking about the spilled milk in the Kitchen.

That too. And if the Dining Room was cleaned, then why would dinner still be out? And the solution doesn't change- which majorly sucks.

That's what happens when Mrs. White quits her job and becomes a wannabe Scarlet instead.

Everyone was young- the oldest was Mustard and he looked around 45.

They were right to call it a 'scandal at CLUE Mansion' - the whole game here is a scandal! Ha!

It's not "this room has been cleaned", it's "this room is clean". Meaning nothing happened there. It's like on cop shows when they say "He's clean; let him go". It's a subtle but important difference.

But even so, the 8 feather dusters reveal the blatant clue that it was in you-know-where!!

But why then did they use a featherduster? Not something else.

What would you recommend? The only other things I can think of is a magnifying glass, which is cliche beyond belief, or Inspector Brown. And besides not being in the game, most people here don't like the idea of the police getting involved, so they would still be annoyed.

Know what I'd recommend?

I'd recommend an actual mystery where it takes some considerable thought process to reach the solution.

I don't know, do they think we're stupid or something that we need this much "clues"? I can just picture Hasbro going:
Hu-llo! Here is a weapon!
Hu-llo! Here is a letter!
Hu-llo! Here is a duster!
Let's have a murder!

Huh? None of these things in real life could prove any three of them. For example, 1 person could have written all the letters, they could have moved the weapons around, and they could have cleaned the rooms!




This is NOT real Clue.


It's an embarrasment. :oops:

Well, in a real murder situation, finding a suspected weapon doesn't clear it from the case.
