Thanks for those links!

EDIT: I had a thought about Clue(do) recently that actually kind of irked me - I saw an ad for Vodka Cruisers (an alcoholic drink that comes in bright colours for the different flavours) and it made me realise that, from a colour perspective, Dr Orchid actually fits better than Mrs White - the ad had the drinks lined up by colour - Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, Red. I mean, the board itself doesn't lay them out that way via the starting spaces, although it almost does, but Orchid's pink gives you a nicer gradation of colours.
I agree Pink is a better *actual* color than White, but that was about 70 years too late... :) Also, Orange is actually the REAL missing color in the spectrum... I think if they had replaced Mrs. White with Miss Peach, there wouldn't have been NEARLY as much outcry on these boards anyway...

Well, orange and indigo for a full 7 colour rainbow lol I would still love it if they made another new character, male, with Orange as his colour.

Speaking of 70 years too late - I would have used Black as a butler back in the original game, as a playable character along with White, as another member of the domestic staff. Not having a butler in a murder mystery always seemed like such an oversight to me growing up lol

Agreed! I'm not sure why the game didn't include 8 players... So what about Rusty? I would have considered him orange, but obviously if they introduce a new character, it won't be using any of the old ones...

Yeah, I would rather they introduced a new character, to go along with Orchid - a character that is orange and male, so you have four male and four female suspects, and Orange seems the best colour to use as an addition to the regular roster. Guess Who? Clue was on the right track with it's eighth character, using Monsieur Brunette, but I can understand why they would have been limited to existing characters in that game. If they did an actual eight suspect game, I would much prefer they used an original character.

President Trump's orange hue us often discussed... Perhaps a cheesy politician character? :D

I'm partial to a Judge character, but a Senator could be interesting. With Mrs White no longer a cook (most of the time), maybe Chef could be an option as well?

I suggested in another thread that Marmalade Game Studios should have done a promotion with an original character called... Marmalade! His colour could be orange and there would be great cross-sell potential :lol:

Looking at the Brazilian Detetive game, it seems to have gone to 8 suspect characters at some point (and extra rooms).

Wait, is that Clue?!?!? I count at least 2 extra weapons too

Edit: Yes, it appears it has 11 locations, 8 players, and 8 weapons. I'm not sure if it's an "official" Brazilian version or just a knock off, though...

I would think a revolver would be more convenient than a shotgun (unless the murder happened from a greater distance), but I like those brass knuckles! 8)

I was going to mention that it comes in 3d as well! :lol: Not sure about that particular gimmick, but the extra rooms, weapons and suspects is interesting.

Here’s a link to an artists website that worked on an app version of the game:

Yes it’s legit. Detetive is the official Brazilian license by Waddingtons and Parker. Hasbro has since begun to compete in the market with Clue against the traditional branding.

I wonder if the changes to Detetive have come about because of Hasbro/to differentiate the game from Clue more - the extra characters (Detetive has always had different characters to Clue), different weapons and different rooms help give it more of it's own identity.

Latest Clue from New York Toy Fair...

Of special interest is that this appears to be the first completely re-worked artwork since Dr. Orchid was introduced... And it still features Orchid instead of White.

Interesting - are we going to get a Speed Edition of Clue as well? Or a Clue Mega Edition? (I’d actually love to see that lol) :lol:

The board looks interesting though, and art wise it kind of reminds me of the Lost in Vegas version, at least on first glance.

I love that board! Definitely getting it. Perhaps alongside with the Ghost of Mrs. White :)
