How the New Clue Board Game Differs from the Classic

Clue Board GameIn 2008, nearly 60 years after the popular board game Clue hit shelves, Hasbro decided to give it a makeover. By moving the game of Clue from a traditional mansion to a more modern party house, the makers of Clue have brought the classic game into the 21st century. Add this new updated version of Clue to the rotation during your next family game night.

Game Board

In the new Clue you will not find the all of the same places as the old game. The mansion has received a makeover to become a hip party spot. Gone are the library, billiard room and conservatory. The new game includes the kitchen, dining room and hall from the old game and new rooms, including:

  • A spa
  • Living room
  • Observatory
  • A theater
  • Guest house
  • A patio

In addition to the different rooms, the characters start from different places on the board. By choosing one character over another, you may be able to get into a room faster.

Game Characters

  • Jacob Green, a guy with connections
  • Diane White, a former child star
  • Victor Plum, a video game designer
  • Kasandra Scarlet, a movie star
  • Eleanor Peacock, a girl from a wealthy family
  • Jack Mustard, a pro football player

Available Weapons

Gone are the lead pipe and wrench from the original game, though some of the weapons have remained. Instead of six weapons, there are now nine including:

  • Rope
  • Knife
  • Candlestick
  • Dumbbell
  • Poison
  • Axe
  • Bat
  • Trophy
  • Pistol

Game Cards

Like in the original game, players are dealt cards that feature the weapons, characters and rooms in the mansion. They use these cards to discover the crime that was committed. A new addition to the game is the pool in the middle of the game board. A special room in the mansion, it contains any undealt cards. Players may enter the pool to look at the cards and cross out suspects.

Also included in the game are "intrigue cards." When you land on a spot with a question mark, you draw an intrigue card, which may give you a special advantage in the game

Other Components

The game pieces and notepads take on a different look in the new clue as well. Instead of moving colored pawns, you move clear question marks with colored bases. The notepad is designed to look like a dinner napkin and contains space for marking down your notes.

Not very good, but it is to the point.
I'll steadily improve
Hello Ladies, It's high time I get out and have fun again. Been divorced a couple years dedicating most of that time to work and my children.
My circle of friends isn't very large so I'm hoping to meet several women to help give me other perspectives on what is out there.
In reviewing many ads in the Platonic section, there seems to be some confusion. I'm strictly looking for friends to spend time with and get together for fun, not a veiled attempt to date. I'm in this for fun above all else.
I'm a very open minded individual and have a ton of likes. Among the activites I enjoy are playing pool, bike riding, hikes, exploring various sites around the Puget Sound and beyond, traveling, and...
