|Clue Mystery Puzzle: Killers in the Kitchen - 1991|
Appearing a year prior to the U.S. version, the Cluedo brand puzzle is basically the same with a few artistic changes and more pieces (750 compared to 500).
Poor Dr. Black! Or rather, poor rich Dr. Black, who knew only one sure way to make friends - lend them money. Unfortunately, Dr. Black decided to lend money to the wrong people. His six debtors had one thing in common. They had no intention of paying him back.
But one fine day in May the money ran out. All that Dr. Black could lend his "friends" was the loan of his country estate, Tudor Close, which had been shut up during the winter.
There was a special reason for the invitation. Along with the house keys was a brief letter. "Dear Friend," it said. "I hope you enjoy the house, and won't mind repaying the money you owe so I can keep up with its expenses..."
All six of his debtors arrived on the same day at Tudor Close. But one of the six had an unusual instrument for cutting free of debt. It was a large kitchen knife, carefully inserted in the doctor's back!
Professor Peter Plum: His background is American, and so is his taste. Did that include a taste for blood?
Mrs. Elizabeth Peacock: She considered herself to be a gourmet. Was her favorite kitchen tool a knife?
Mrs. Blanche White: She did all the cooking. Was she cooking up a murder plot on Dr. Black's hearth?
Reverend Jonathan Green: What unholy scheme did he hatch when he entered the kitchen at Tudor Close?
Miss Vivienne Scarlett: She knew nothing about kitchens. But did she find the right implement that night?
Colonel Mike Mustard: He knew how to handle weapons of all sorts - especially knives and forks.
