Actually, I don't believe the victim was ever named nor was he given any kind of profile information

He may not have been named but I’m pretty sure he was meant to be a movie producer of some sort? It’s been awhile - maybe he was given no biographical information and it’s just a head canon thing about the movie producer role

The victim was a unnamed Media Mogul. Also the game said that he went "missing". Where did the body go then? Is it supposed to be in the pool at the center?

Thanks Jonathan, I thought he had some kind of movie/media related backstory

The Mr. Ree board game had a pergola as a location (Oxford Dictionary defines it as an "archway in a garden or park consisting of a framework covered with trained climbing or trailing plants"). A pavilion would also be an interesting outdoor location.

Some other locations Mr Ree! has that general Cluedo doesn't include:

Woodshed
Well
Bird Bath
Bench
Bushes
Car
Gate

and inside also has

Closet

And unlike Cluedo actually included 2 bedrooms and a bathroom (complete with a toilet depicted in some versions)

Most of them sound like good locations for an outdoor game, save for the bench, bushes, and car: asides from them all being very simple locations, the former two could easily be the decor for another room, while the car just feels prosaic and doesn't have the same feel as the other outdoor rooms.

I actually think the bench could work as an outdoor location for a Clue game, a little lovers seat in the garden, though it's more just set dressing for another space like the garden. The Woodshed is probably the real take away (apart from the pergola, but that was already brought up) - the original Mr Ree! also includes a Dinette rather than a full dining room, which could also be included as a room (they are distinct from full dining rooms). I need to take some pictures of the Mr Ree! board and post them.

I have an Arbour in my version, which technically should include a bench/swing.

Love the idea of a lighthouse. That also makes me think of the outdoor structures I saw in Greece — family chapels. It’s already an indoor location, but I like the idea of a stand alone meditation/ceremonial/religious structure. The family burial plot can be located there as well.

I remember in the Haunted Mansion video game (that came out the same time as the movie, it has a different story), one of the levels/rooms was the Museum.

I also remember on the Cluedo 2000 edition box saying that Dr. Black was seen at the Walled Garden.

Helipad. Could either be top of house, or on the grounds.

And have we mentioned a gondola lift, or funicular?

Do they update their room roster monthly? Or is it just as it comes.
