I only tried playing it once because my fellow players seemed to get frustrated by it very easily. So sadly, I've never played a full game of it. But the video is fun to watch by itself. If I remember correctly, you have to watch scenes and remember them correctly to complete a sort of logic puzzle. For instance, you might get a card that says something like, "In the room with the brown floor, the woman who held the candlestick is not a murderer." If you gather enough of these clues, you are supposed to piece together whodunit. Easier said than done...

That reminds me of one of the bizarre aspects of the game. Sometimes you would have multiple murders with suspects killing off other suspects, but there really is no motive for it. It just seems odd.

How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I,ve only so far watched the video. The acting is cheesey, but the actors all worked well together and I love it!

I agree, the acting is horribly chesey but it's still fun! I have both and i've watched both Videos but like the guest who posted i've never played, it looked to confusing, I hated in the second one when they address the audience, that was so cheep. My favorite part was when Miss. Scarlet would slip poison into her ring and then empty it later! That ring is awsome! I wish i could have props from the filming of that! That would be awsome! If you watch till after the credits in the second one it says which hotel the "US hotel room" scenes were filmed in! Its some hotel in Rhode Island, it would be cool to go there! Anyhow i'm carring on and i need to do my homework so i'll shutup! :wink:

I believe it was Belcort Castle that it was filmed in. I keep meaning to trek out there and see it.

There is a great website with lots of information about the Clue VCR games including a lot of behind the scenes information at: www.geocities.com/cluevcr/

Clue II is also cheesy, but funnier since the actors had gotten to know their characters better.

Clue II is much much much chessier because now they address the audience, thats the cheesiest part! Also Inspector Pry is stupid he like stabs a knife in the couch for no reason! And then the suspects are like traveling from country to country trying to get away from inpector pry, at the end there is no real ending, when it started rolling the credits i was like WHAT?!? THATS IT?!?!?

Inspector Pry posted a wanted poster for the suspects. They had earlier agreed to stop being criminals. This poster sparks their intrest and as the end credits roll we see the weapons being removed from the bar one at a time. You don't see the takers faces but you can tellby their clothing who it is.
