Since rooms are less beloved than the weapons or suspects, had to lean on a lot of weird spinoffs for this one. Even the D&D game gets a shoutout here. Again, want to focus on canon rooms before we move to adding our own in... though I'm less concerned in this case, I can't imagine I've missed many.

May I suggest looking on Boardgamegeek.com for more rooms, suspects, and weapons. Plenty of international games there.
https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/12 ... s?pageid=1
http://www.theartofmurder.com/forums/v ... php?t=3611
Of course I see if I can find any more foreign Clue(do) games.

Edit: I think you should add “Greenhouse”. It was referenced in Clue Mysteries, which was built by Lord Gray.
And the other rooms mentioned in Franklin Mint:
Antechamber (Now Study)
Reception Hall (Now Lounge)
Loggia (Now Ballroom)
Game Room (Now Conservatory?)
Vineyard (Which Mr. Boddy owns in the Bordeaux region of Southern France).

This is impressive! You really put in a lot of work for this

Just spitballing some ideas, forgive me if they're outside the range. What about the Family Room (Alfrid H. Clue), and some of the homey rooms from the Marmalade app?

I'll pitch and reveal my own rooms that are unique to the game I'm making currently.

Caldarium - Hot bath (very similar the bath in Clue Bingo, though more Roman in nature).
Grotto - Secret boating/smuggling cave under the manor.
Laboratory (I know the Halloween pack in DTS has this, I'd say mine came first) - Biology lab in the manor specializing in herbology and explosives.
Solar - A retreat den in the manor's towers.
Darkroom - Photography developing room
Gallery - Display hall filled with valuable showpieces (First shown in Clue: MMM)
Boudoir - The lounging and dressing parlour next to the bedroom
Scullery - Cleaning and crockery storage next to the kitchen
Chapel - A private temple and sanctuary in the manor
Arbour - A trellised bridge and walk
Smoking Room - A room exclusively for games and smoking (First shown in Clue: MMM)
Nursery - The ex-playroom of young David and Rose Black
Rookery - A broken room populated by crows (This room didn't make the cut, but it was part of my 60 room mock-up)

There’s also a family room in Clue Bingo.

Also Cluedokid, there’s a boudoir in Clue Bingo as well.

I don't see it in the list, is it called boudoir and is used for sexual escapades?

Technically, I would lay claim on the Clock Tower and Widow Walk given I had those rooms a year before Clue Bingo came out.

No, it looks like a dressing room. I’ll see if I could find it

Ah, well, unless it's actually called Boudoir, I'd still pitch it as a first. I see it more as less a dressing room than say a room for Marquis de Sade-esque romps.

(Are there others rooms not added yet to the BINGO list?)

Well it is called Boudior, but you can still claim it. I think I saw a topic where you used it. The Last Noel I believe?

I’ll double check, but I’m sure I go them all.

I added the Boudior to the Clue Bingo Room list. It was the only room I forgot to put in.
