Trapped! Ellery Queen's Great Mystery Game

Post by Murder by Death »

Here's another interesting game which tried to capitalize on the murder-mystery gaming genre. This one seems so close to Cluedo as to cause them legal troubles. However, what I really like about this game is the 3-D board. Notice all the rooms are literally sunken into the playing surface. Why Clue never did this is beyond me. The fact Parker Brothers avoided such gimmicks speaks to the strength of the brand even in the early 50s.
