While I have some problems with it, there can no be denyin one thing: now no one can claim that there is a door where there isn't.

Yes but in the over pictures the weapons have an artistic flare to them. Its not a blurry close up of a cheaply made piece. These weapons have more detail than the Reinvention pieces. Plus the gold accents allow shadows and reflections. I almost think these were drawn to resemble the pawns. As well as the dark outlines around the weapons and in the crevices. It makes them bolder and more elegant.

Anybody have or seen this Spanish edition?

Note that it shows the original UK Cluedo weapons, except the rope is the US rope! And it appears to be in silver-colored or plastic.

I'm guessing this is pre-1972 considering there is a 1972 Spanish Cluedo which uses the US '72 theme, followed by an 80s version derived from the US 86/MD 88 editions, so it is unlikely they would go backwards to the plain UK design. The most interesting thing is the US plastic rope design mixed with the traditional UK weapons, which could have been added as early as the late 50s.

Cool box art on the Chilean/Venezuelan Sospecha edition. It has an interesting Fauvism style about it which we haven't really seen in Cluedo before ... Prof Plum is my least favorite, but mainly due to the fact he looks as if his teeth are rotting out of his head right in front of your eyes.

This detailed review indicates the game uses the 1986 board and cards, but strangely, they appear to reverse Mrs. Peacock (Sra. Celeste) and Mrs. White's (Sra. Blanco) roles based on their outfits. Since the colors don't otherwise match up (except for Scarlet), perhaps this is a mistake?

The second link shows the 1996 board on the back cover, so they probably kept the same character artwork over a period of transition for the board. Interesting.
Was it Miss Scarlet with the Candlestick in the Ballroom? Yes... yes it was.

Good thing I found the forum.
I found this game:
Коломбо: Классическая детективная игра, which translate to Colombo: Classic Detective Game
A Ukrainian Cluedo game made in 2007

It's reminds me of the 2000 version of Cluedo.

Looking at the rooms clockwise, it would appear to be Library, Kitchen, Lounge, Sunroom (?), Ballroom, Dining Room, Hall, Bedroom, and Study (?).

Also, noting there's a black character space rather than white.

Sospecha (Suspicion) - Venezuelan
Suspicion is published by the Venezuelan Juguetería very at the beginning of the 60s and is the Spanish-American version of Cluedo

The game takes place in the house of Mr. X, who has been found dead in a place of his residence.

The game aims to answer 3 questions:

1. Who committed the crime?

2. What weapon was used?

3. Where in the house?

The solution is in a black envelope, located in the center of the board, containing three cards that indicate who the murderer is, what weapon he used and where it occurred.
Artwork similar to the '63 edition
