Clue is a popular classic board game. It is so easy to play, Clue has been translated into many languages and has been adopted by many different groups. The goal of each round is to find out who committed a murder, which player gets put in jail, and how did they do it? To figure out who did what, players will ask questions about the crime and deduce different conclusions based on other players’ statements. At the end of each round, players vote on the person they suspect committed the crime.
A Clue game consists of an unfolding lounge with a door to a secret passage and an oven that can be opened and closed. The other items in the game are six weapons, one victim meeple, two-room cards, two additional cards that show where each weapon is hidden, and 6-character cards. Each player takes a character card—a person who might have committed the murder—and gets their own game board to track their movements around the house. Players are also given a sheet of paper that has spaces to record who they suspect committed the crime and how they did it. At the beginning of each round, players have to figure out which is the guilty party and move their meeple up to the center of the room and put it on the napping bed. A second person has to roll a die and take their victim card from their hand with a special pin on it. The player who is displayed on the bed moves one space toward them. After this second person draws his or her special card, all seven players have one minute to figure out different questions about what happened in the house and try to deduce who is guilty.
Character cards have their own special questions about the crime and how it was committed. After each round, players vote on who they think committed the crime by picking up their character card and counting how many votes they get. The player with the most votes is guilty. The game ends after one round when someone is found out to be guilty and they are taken away in handcuffs. The game continues until all players have been caught through voting.
