Hasbro Gives Clue a Modern Twist

Posted on August 15, 2008

Modern Clue Board GameHasbro has a new version of the popular board game Clue. This version has different characters, new rooms and new weapons.
The mystery you love to solve again and again is even more intense! CLUE game is back with a modern twist: a soiree at a millionaire mogul's mansion turned deadly, and you must find out who is responsible for murdering the host. There's no Revolver or Billiard Room this time... but could it have been Scarlet with the Barbell in the Spa? Open up the tabloid-style instructions to get the scoop on the updated rooms, weapons, and guests. A deck of Intrigue Cards adds suspense to your game with cards that can help you solve the crime faster... or result in a second victim! Narrow down which rumors are true and which are just hearsay-and get caught up in the scandal of the century!
Today details some of the other changes in the modernized Clue. Here a few of the changes.

  • Colonel Mustard is now Jack Mustard, a former football player.
  • Professor Plum is now Victor Plum, a billionaire video game designer.
  • New Rooms: theater, spa and guest house
  • Weapons: Hasbro removed the lead pipe, revolver and wrench and has added a dumbbell, trophy and poison.
  • Each of the characters has a special sleuthing power.

    We liked it when Clue was more like a cozy British mystery novel instead of a scandalous murder at some millionaire mogul's mansion. Fortunately, the classic version of Clue is still available. You can see all of Hasbro's different Clue versions - includinag a Simpsons version - here.
