For the first time ever, I actually found a box perfect for this game, so I immediately set to work on a box cover.

It looks much less blurry in reality. Photobucket made it blurrier.

Very nice cover. It's a little busy, and the fact that it's only in black and white makes it a little difficult to focus on one thing. Maybe adding a dash of color, such as the title?

I second the vote for a little color on the box. I love it, but you need to catch people's eye with the CLUE logo, subtitle, and tagline. I think anything more than a splash of red in the text would be too much and steal all of the focus.

Keep it up! Maybe one day you can pitch it to someone at Hasbro and they'll give you a big pot of money to let them mass-produce it!

...well, it's a nice thought at least.

I hope this is an improvement. It looked funny in red.

Ooh, didn't even think about gold! Very nice!

So you have box art, card images, and a board designed: What happens next? Are you planning to make a playable one?

The rooms are finished. The suspect pawns are the regular ones like in 1992 Clue. I only did the regular weapons, which is just a painted version of the original pieces. I still have to make the 4 other weapons.

Fantastic! It looks so professional.

The only suggestion I would make is that you paint the original 6 pawns too, because the plastic/paint textures look so different, that they don't seem to match.

Actually, the pieces look different because of the flash from the camera. They look more alike in reality.

Thanks. Also, I made the die. There are three different things you can roll:
-Move and Suggest (3 sides)
-Move only (1 side)
-Events (The Clock Symbol, 2 sides)

And on the actual die:
