I know how you feel, I stopped at WalMart yesterday and saw a new dark cover of a game and got excited...but it turned out to be some CSI game :(

now that i can see the box cover, i like how in the blueish back you can see a blonde (i'm guessing mrs peacock) whispering to who i am guessing to be professor plum ... i like more than plum whispering to azure on clue fx's box; also ... the invitation plays off of the three questions: who? with what? where? to some degree

whoever finds this game, do not hesitate to critique it for us

As I think about it, I hope someone else gets it before me, because my camera is still broke and I hate teasingly describing it like I did for the Premiere Edition... :(

Tony came back from Spain today, so I'll be able to take nice pix with our camera.

Is it me or is Mrs. Peacock(?) whispering to someone

Image

And I believe the invitation reads-

We're simply dying for you to join our party

Who? The usual suspects
Where? A luxury mansion
When? BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE


There is what appears--- an invitation, a wine glass, a clock, a pool, a woman in shadows, and Miss Scarlet...

(EDITED SURVIVE TO BEFORE)

It actually says "BEFORE it's too late," cacums. Survive it's too late wouldn't make any sense.

scarlet must have a very central role in this game, considering that she is the only suspect prominently featured on the front of the box and on the side

also, in the windows of the mansion you can see the shilouettes of the guests ... but there appear to be more than six ...

Nah, it's probably just that she's arguably the most famous of the suspects (challenged only by Col. Mustard).

Hmm, that box seems a bit weird without the 'DO' on the end of the title! :? But that's my opinion. I still haven't got it yet, but I will...

i was being tongue-in-cheek about scarlet - she's always been featured prominently on the boxes; without the 'do' after clue, they could move the whisperers up, whereas on the cluedo box the whispering pairs are under 'discover the secrets'

anyone have any thoughts on in the description where it reads about spreading rumors? the whispering has got me thinking ...

I was just guessing :oops:

I would like to see something like 1996 and older where Every suspect fits on the cover *ONCE* unlike the most recent Scarlet where her head appears on the left and her body on the right... :|

I didn't think about it being rumors, but that sounds fun! Though it did occur to me how UK and other countries will do it because they have to add "DO" and that will make the box more claustrophobic...
