I remember years ago sitting around the table as a family playing Clue and my mom was so competitive she wanted to win every time. This game is super fun, filled with suspense and mystery, and every time you start a new game it is always different. Which makes it even more fun and it never gets boring.
It all starts when the owner of the mansion Mr. Boddy is found dead and the object is to figure out who did it, with what weapon and in which room. The game boards vary on which rooms there are depending on if you have newer version or the older version. There is always nine rooms though. In the newer board games the billiard room is switched for a spa.
To begin each player picks their game piece (yellow, purple, red, green, blue or white) each game piece signify's a specific character Col. Mustard, Prof. Plum, Miss Scarlett, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Mrs. White. then you have to roll to see who goes first. The results of who did it are kept in a yellow confidential envelope until a person thinks they know the answer and then they can try to solve the murder but if they are wrong they are out and the game resumes.
The players then go around and go to each room, once in a room the players guess what it is between the person, the room they are in and the weapon they used there are six weapons: Dagger, Rope, Lead Pipe, Candlestick, revolver and wrench.
If they are incorrect then the person next to them must show them one of the cards they have whether it be the person, weapon or room so that they can mark it off of their clue sheet. IF that person does not have it then it goes to the next person and so on and so forth, but they can only get one clue per turn. It is presumed if no one has any of the clues then the murder is solved but not until the person checks and they can not show everyone until they are certain what they guessed is right. That player is the winner.
This game is great for families to play and it can create non stop fun for hours. I know many people around me do not want to even start to play it because I will not want to stop and we will end up playing for hours and hours that is how exciting and fun it is for me. My kids love it as well to.
Summary: I would recommend that every family had a clue game in their games cabinet for family game night!
