Re: Clue Rival Edition

I got very lucky this past week & randomly found a listing for one of these on eBay. I’ll snap some photos tomorrow, but here’s some first impressions: It’s got the best box design of all the Rivals Editions (I also have Life & Sorry) Cards are thicker stock than the standard USA editions The board ...

12 Game Lot on eBay

From the listing: Most of the games in this lot are in excellent used condition, but please read through the description list and look at the detailed photos for condition details-the only missing pieces are notepads in two versions. All are from a smoke-free, pet-free home and are sold AS IS. Pleas...

Re: Foreign Editions

Figured I would just dump this in here instead of giving it its own thread: from eBay , a Russian Cluedo for only 2-5 players. Dr. Orchid has been removed from the game, along with the Lead Pipe. The board shown on the back of the box features the Bathroom layout — notably, Dr. Orchid’s start space ...

Re: Clue Rival Edition

FWIW: my closest Lidl store (Atlanta area) has the Rivals Editions of Sorry, Life, and Monopoly for about $8/ea. No sign of the Clue variant as of yet, but maybe it’s en route via one of our European grocers (the other one being Aldi, if you couldn’t guess, which sometimes sports a nice range of Has...

Re: “And I’m a homosexual”

I’d definitely forgotten all about this thread (been a minute, I was 19, now we are 30 :shock: ). I wouldn’t start this thread nowadays, but I’m glad to see our active members over the years happily latched on to the intended humor of it all. I’ve done some updating in my original post, to the exten...

Re: Clue 2011 miniseries - Hubworld.com Archives

Yes, The Hub was Hasbro’s short-lived attempt at a cable network for kids & families. I watched parts of this Clue series as it aired, eventually finishing it when the DVD was released (as a continuous movie, rather than broken into the 5 episodes). I remember thinking it was the kind of thing my yo...

Re: Clue Funko Pops!

To each his own, but I’ve never understood the appeal of these things.

So of course I’ve gone ahead & preordered the 4 I could :lol: Because I am a *...

Re: Clue Rival Edition

Oh, how fun! I’ve been waiting for the other Rivals editions to hit store shelves — some easy 2 player games would be most welcome in Covid Times. Had no idea a Clue version was in the pipeline, too, so now I’m mentally already $10 poorer :lol:

Re: Marmalade Game Studio's Clue(do)

Marmalade Game Studio has resently released The Game of Life 2. Maybe Clue might be getting the same treatment down the line I'm assuming that's an interesting typo, or do you resent / feel indignant that The Game of Life got a new version before Clue ( do )? :wink: Well, it’s happened before.

Re: Clue Liar Edition Review(s)

Got my copy last week (more box damage than my “magic mirror” edition, hence it being an Amazon Warehouse deal. But I saved about $6 in the end, and the components are in excellent shape). This is definitely a game that I’d imagine shines best in a group of 4-6. The 2-player rules are included (in f...

Re: Clue Liar Edition Review(s)

I bought one from an Amazon Warehouse deal. Saved a few dollars because the box is “damaged” in some way (if it’s anything like my copy of the “magic mirror” edition, the damage is going to be a negligible dent in a corner). Saved a few bucks, so I’m looking forward to its arrival on Monday. I think...

Re: New Deluxe Travel Ed. by WS Games

Yeah, the weapons look a lot like other vintage/retro inspired sets. Not at all the actual vintage molds, but not 100% just the standard weapon dimensions. I’ve always wondered why these designs need to exist at all, they can’t be that much of a price difference to produce. [shrug] Here’s a shot of ...

Re: New Deluxe Travel Ed. by WS Games

Some photos on my IG here . It’s definitely a “travel” game in the sense that it’s a portable game. The magnets that hold the case shut are very strong — I tried to record a video unveiling the board, only to discover it can’t easily be opened with one hand. :lol: Without any kind of magnets in the ...

It’s nice, but I’m salty that’s when they dropped the ball on sculpting custom playing pieces & just recycling existing models. :?

Re: Which is the best Marmalade theme?

Tudor/Classic get the heaviest rotation from me, but my favorite overall theme has to be Murder Express. It’s a fun board to throw almost any combination of characters into, and I love the entirety of that 9-part suspect lineup. Why no love for the Egyptian dig theme? Or just an oversight when you s...

Short form Clue/do History on YouTube

From Deseret News Most enjoyable to see Pratt’s daughter, Marcia Lewis, interviewed, as well as Rob Daviau, the game designer we can apparently thank for that woefully misguided “Discover the Secrets” rebranding. Nothing new in this for people like us, but a nicely produced little piece. I especial...
