Love a Great Mystery – How about a Game of Clue –
The classic detective game! In Clue, players move from room to room in a mansion to solve the mystery of: who done it, with what, and where? Players are dealt character, weapon, and location cards after the top card from each card type is secretly placed in the confidential file in the middle of the board. Players must move to a room and then make an accusation against a character saying they did it in that room with a specific weapon. The player to the left must show one of any cards accused to the accuser if in that player’s hand. Through deductive reasoning each player must figure out which character, weapon, and location are in the secret file. To do this, each player must uncover what cards are in other players hands by making more and more accusations. Once a player knows what cards the other players are holding, they will know what cards are in the secret file. A great game for those who enjoy reasoning and thinking things through.
As kids we sat together at my Grandparents kitchen table & played Clue for hours with my Grandfather who was a big mystery fan. I got my love of mystery books & shows from him.I was so glad to see one of my favorite games make it into the Toy Hall of Fame. Lisa -Lets Play !
