About this deal

Cluedo was originally marketed as "The Great New Detective Game" upon its launch in 1949 in North America. Advertising at the time suggested players would take on the guise of "Sherlock Holmes following the path of the criminal", but no depictions of Holmes appear in the advertising or on the box. We do our best to securely package items, but if any issues do arise please get in touch and we'll replace/refund. The game allowed for play of up to eight remaining characters, providing for nine suspects in total.

As soon as a player enters a room, they may make a suggestion as to the details, naming a suspect, the room they are in, and weapon. Pay attention to what your fellow investigators are asking and who replies - you may be able to find answers without even having to ask! The object of the game is to determine who murdered the game's victim, where the crime took place, and which weapon was used.Notably, the remaining playing cards were distributed into the rooms to be retrieved, rather than dealt directly to the players.

This Cluedo edition introduces fresh elements, including secret passages and personalized weapon naming. The package includes everything you need: a solve envelope, a detective's notepad, 2 dice, and a comprehensive guide to navigate the thrilling gameplay. The most significant change to game play is that once the suspect cards have been taken, the remaining cards are dealt so that all players have an even number of cards (rather than dealt out so that "one player may have a slight advantage"). This new version of the game offered major changes to the game play and to the characters and their backstories.There were several differences between the original game concept and the one initially published in 1949. Clue "Master Detective" (1988), [31] an expanded version of the game featuring 12 rooms, 10 characters, and eight weapons with support for up to 10 players. The tokens for the suggested suspect and weapon are immediately moved into that room, if they are not both already present. A custom version of the game was also released in the US by Restoration Hardware as Wooden Box Clue with different cover art.

This technique can be used for both forcing a player to reveal a different card as well as misleading other players into believing a specific card is suspect.

As the story unfolds, you'll find yourself in the midst of a mansion filled with secrets and deceit. Peacock has an immediate advantage of starting one space closer to the first room than any of the other players. Enter the game of CLUE and through a process of elimination, a bit of bluff, and some luck with the dice, solve the mystery and reveal the cards within the secret envelope. Some of our vintage or prior versions of toy and game instructions may be more difficult to decipher or have less clarity. Inside this box, you'll find Cluedo The Classic Mystery Game, complete with a captivating gameboard, an ensemble of 6 character tokens and weapon tokens, an array of character cards, weapon cards, and room cards, along with 29 Clue cards to uncover the truth.
