This stylish edition takes its cues from the previous Cluedo games, but really succeeds in a more attractive look. The box shows the board and playing pieces on a blue-green background of a street map. The Cluedo logo is boldly placed in the upper left with a gold foil seal below indicating the limited edition number. Surrounding the perimeter is 1893 - 1993 to commemorate the centenary. The board is nicely crafted as well. Each "room" bleeds into the edge of the board which has the sillouette of a skyline. The "rooms" also contain a drawing of each landmark they represent.
Unlike monopoly which can thrive with special editions based on locations, Cluedo unfortunately does not follow suit. The downside is evident when looking at the suspects. As time passes, people will forget who the suspects are which makes the game a little less special.
This game is still in its original shrinkwrap and is numbered 1621 of 2000.
