With Guess Who Clue acknowledging both Mrs. White and Monsieur Brunette, I believe they are headed on the right track. If only we could get some artistic overhauls in the next standard edition. I am in love with the character cards from the Liar's Edition. If they went that route with a standard edition and updated the weapon cards to look a bit "more than the tokens" I think we are all in for a treat.

I think with Clue as well, it is such an established brand that it will be around for a very long time to come - while we are in a dull period at the moment, that can change and we could still get new and interesting products. Guess Who Clue adding Mrs White and Orchard was great to see, even if it was just to make up characters - Clue has such a rich history of suspects, it would be awesome if they mixed and matched and used some other characters in different games.

Interesting find Warner, the first trailer I've seen featuring the Studio section in the UK version. It feels weird

I got so hooked on Cluedo after my BF dropped by with his Switch, that I made a Steam-account to play the game there.
On the Switch, the regular game was on the expensive side and gave 5 board and character sets, and the "season pass" was cheap. It wasn't a nice surprise to find that on Steam it's the other way round - worse, now I only got 1 skin and the season pass is too expensive. I hope there'll be a sale someday.

Anyway, does anyone here have the same game? We could play together sometime.

I have a Steam account, but I haven't uploaded the game there yet.

Oh cool! :P

I mean there is no wrench or spanner in the current logo, so why not change it?!

So I was checking out "Screen & Stage" of TAoM, and I found some magazines of the UK gameshow with some extra info of the characters (only for series 1 and 3)

Miss Scarlet apparently attended a Swiss finishing school, which she got expelled from. She's also a model, and travels frequently out of the country. Scarlet is waiting to inherit her late father's trust fund.

Colonel Mustard gain his rank as "Colonel" during the Falklands War in 1982. He left the SAS on medical grounds.

Mrs. White has worked for Mrs. Peacock for 25 years and was a nurse to Scarlet. Her old employer died in a fire (Nesting House) which she was suspected off, but never charged.

Reverend Green was once arrested during a Anti-Vietnam protest.

Mrs. Peacock started in several B-movies and soup operas before her marriage to Commander Jack Peacock. Her first husband, Mr. Scarlet, died during an riding accident

Professor Plum, in series 1, studied at Harvard, and wants to become a millionaire before 40, then become a football player.

In series 3, Plum lectured at Cambridge before being thrown out after allegations of plagiarism.

Uh, "soup operas"? :lol:

Also, I think it was 15 years, not 25 years.
