I really like the dagger in the version on the left. Sadly no lead pipe in the left side's comparison.

Ehh, I only like the dagger of the bunch. Other than that, the "modern" weapons are better.

I agree but I acturally like the old rope, it looks as if it doesn't break to easily.

what version are those from? They appear to be a cheap plastic set from one of the early European or travel editions. I'm not sure that rope is authentic. Doesn't really make sense in context with the other weapons ...

Similar to these:

Those look more like the type that you pop out of a plastic tray. The dagger looks more like an ice pick too.

That's a very unique lead pipe piece...

I never understand why the revolvers are always shaped like pistols.

What I don't understand is why Mrs. White is represented by a black pawn. Did the factory run out of white paint?

You didn't disclose the source edition of yours ... but I don't really see a major difference, as the ones in your pic are plastic too, and the barrel of the revolver looks chewed on.

Mine is from the 1950s/60s German edition. I particularly like the suspect cards as the Colonel Mustard character looks the way Adolf Hitler must have envisioned himself.

Rather nice characterization of Plum and Peacock.

Mybe White and Scarlet should change places.

I have to disagree. Though an Asian White does make me think of the VCR Scarlet on the cover of Murder in Disguise.

I think they are all from the games, I'm not sure.

This is a vid I found of all the various unofficial, copied versions of the Cluedo TV show DVD releases. Looks really professional, though.
